sounds to me like the driver you have isn't vista compatible. Or possibly has got stuck in a loop.
Try removing the driver, rebooting then installing a fresh driver from the intel website.
I'd also recommend some extra RAM.
If the world doesn't stop annoying me I will name my kids ";DROP DATABASE;" and get revenge.

Buy a decent video card with at least 128Mb of memory. Make sure that it is Vista compatible and has the drivers.
That chipset is obsolete and won't support Vista, which is doubtless why it is reverting to VGA mode.
As already stated you could do with some more memory (RAM) as well. 512Mb is recommended as a minimum.

Download the Intel 845G graphics card driver for Windows XP and extract it.
When installing the driver in windows vista choose let me select the location and browse to the Win200 folder of the extracted file and point to the ialmnt5.inf file.
This driver works with the XPDM model and intel says that it is supported with Vista and I have it running on my system but there is no Aero support for the RTM and later version. If you want the glass Aero on Vista...install the graphics card drivers of 845G and just go for Window Blinds...lol...100% Working.
