Dell Inspiron 1545 Video drivers for Win7 x64

I'm having a tough time finding a video driver for my Dell Insiprion 1545. The OS is Win7 x64. Can anyone recommend which one I should be using. The one off the support link still shows the yellow exclamation mark over the Display Adapters and the resolution is at default 1024x768

Thanks in advance!

Do you have the version with Intel-only video, or the one with ATI video?  The BIOS (F2 at powerup) screen will tell you.

Here is the information from the BIOS (F2):

Video Controller = Intel GM45 Graphics

Video BIOS Version = 1706

Video Memory = 32MB

Panel Type = 15.6" HD

Native Resolution = 1366 by 768

Thanks for the quick reply!

The first one installed fine, the second wouldn't install at all, and the third also installed ok.

The reason the second link didn't work was because the two downloads are for Vista x64 and would not install on Windows 7 x64 due to installer incompatiblity.
