You have an Intel 965 Extreme Graphics Chip on-board....

Have you tried Windows Update ?

Pater - he's got 865 Extreme Graphics , not 965.

He's right - Vista is not listed:

Your 865 Extreme Graphics are probably already supported by Vista, because the mboard's main chipset, which has those graphics built into it, was made well before Vista was first released.

If you have just installed Vista, if you are prompted while booting to have Windows search for video drivers, let it do that.

If you saw that but cancelled it or said no, or in any case, go to Control Panel - Device Manager, click on Display adapters - if Intel 865 Extreme graphics or similar is listed, the proper drivers have already been installed by Vista. If anything else is listed, RIGHT click on any adapter listed there, and choose to Un-install it. If you are prompted to re-boot the computer, do that. If you are prompted while booting to have Windows search for video drivers, let it do that.
.........

If you RIGHT click on a blank area of the main desktop screen, then select Personalize - Display Settings, you will see xxxx Monitor on (the name of the display adapter) .

If you see Generic PNP Monitor, or a specific monitor model that is the same as the one you have, on Intel 865 Extreme Graphics , or similar, Vista has already installed the video drivers, and you don't need to install anything.

If your problem is your display is not clear, or looks funny, or does not fill the screen, etc,,
See Response 5 in this:

If you see Default or Unknown Monitor, or similar, on Intel 865 Extreme Graphics , or similar, Vista has already installed the video drivers for the 865 graphics, but those video drivers are not detecting your monitor properly.

In most cases, if you make sure the monitor is powered on at least a few seconds before you boot the computer, that will correct that problem, and you will then see Generic PNP Monitor, or a specific monitor model that is the same as the one you have, on Intel 865 Extreme Graphics , or similar, there.
If that doesn't help, you need to install some sort of drivers for the monitor, at least Generic PNP Monitor.
.....

If you see Default or Unknown Monitor, or Generic PNP Monitor, or similar, on Unknown adapter, or similar, Vista probably has the 865 graphics drivers, but you need to install them properly - see the above.

Go here:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/def...

type: D865GSA in the search box, click on Search downloads

Click on Vista 32 bit or 64 bit.

Scroll down - no drivers are listed for Vista - that probably indicates Vista already has the built in support needed to detect the main chipset and the video and everything else built into the mboard and install the drivers for them.
