Hello Everybody

Here's my problem. I was using a Dell Laptop with a Graphic chip "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200". I took the Hard Drive of that Laptop and put it in another notebook (Acer Aspire 5338-2801) with a "Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family".
I installed all the necessary drivers and everything is working fine except for the graphic chipset. it throws me a warning.

my question is. How do i disable the ATI chipset on Windows 7 if, as you can see in the first picture, it doesn't appear in the Device Manager window?

could you help me with this?

You might try reinstalling into the Dell then lacate the drivers. You can copy then delete delete these when installed in the Acer.
The other is disable or uninstall through device mgr, again you would best do this while installed in the Dell.
