Long story short, took a harddrive from an HP laptop with Win7 already on it and put it into a dell (latitude 3521) laptop that had a failed drive with Win8. Installed all the drivers from dell's site but I can't get graphics to work.
I believe it's just the Intel HD4000 graphics, but device manager is telling me the display adapter "device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (code 12)"
According to the error from MS, it's a resource conflict. And the only solution I can find says to locate the conflict and remove it. Well duh!
I've checked in system information (msinfo32) and the Intel HD Graphics is using IRQ 7 and nothing else appears to use 7.
I'm thinking previous AMD drivers are causing the issue, but I've tried uninstalling Catalyst twice now yet it still lists under Programs and Features.
At this point I'm wondering if it'd be easier wiping the drive and starting from scratch with a fresh install.
Btw, it's an Intel 2117U 1.8GHz
