Should I trust Intel's Driver Update utility or Windows Update?

Q: Should I trust Intel's Driver Update utility or Windows Update?

Windows Update is not telling me I need or can update my Wireless networking, but Intel's Update Driver Utility says I should and is offering the update. How would you recommend I proceed?

Preferred Solution: Should I trust Intel's Driver Update utility or Windows Update?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Should I trust Intel's Driver Update utility or Windows Update?

G'day Rolo,

The difference between the two drivers is that the Windows one is digital signed/tested by Microsoft. I would say that unless the Intel one delivers more benefit than the Windows one, and everything works as expected, then there is no need to update.

You often see this with graphics card drivers too, for example.

I downloaded and ran the Intel (R) Driver Update Utility on my ASUS X54C Laptop which is running Win 8.1

I found it at: Intel® Driver Update Utility

I ran the utility and the utility found two updates which I downloaded as per the screenshot below.

My questions are

(1) .. should I install these two updates?
(2) .. is there any risk in installing the updates?

I should mention that I have not had any problems with my laptop and am wondering if I should leave well alone?

A:Intel (R) Driver Update Utility

The Intel driver update utility is safe. These are Generic drivers though, if your not experiencing any problems there's no need to download them if your X54C came with windows 8. The version changes are minimal the chipset for example is for newer hardware(the x54c is at least 3 years old) and the HD graphic are changes for specific video games/screen hardware. Because they are generic drivers provided from Intel and have not been cleared through ASUS there is always a minimal(however small) possibility that it might cause problems and have to roll back which is easy(happened to me once). Best is to go here and see if there are any updates.

When I run the subject program (have latest version - 2.4), the scan tells me my graphics driver (for Win 7, 64-bit) is currently version 10.18.10.4358 and that a newer version, 15.33.42.4385, is available. I click the [Download] button, and it downloads a 124MB file. Then the [Install} button lights up. I click it, it goes thru the motions, but when it finally starts installing, it says it's installing ver. 10.18.10.4358 ! And sure enough, after the install finishes and I reboot the computer, when I do another scan it says I have version 10.18.10.4358 and 15.33.42.4358 is an available update.

What's wrong?

You don't need to use that Intel Utility at all. Just download the correct driver(s) and do it manually.

I have never used that utility, and every Laptop/PC I've ever owned has had Intel CPUs, chipsets and sometimes Graphics, Networks cards etc.

I recently set up a new Dell 7710 Precision Workstation (Xeon E3-1535M v5 w/Intel HD Graphics P530; Nvidia Quadro M5000M; Windows 7 Pro). The Dell Precision Optimizer (DPPO) tells me there are no updates at all (no Critical, Recommended, or Optional). However, the Intel Driver Update Utility tells me I have an older chipset (14.6.1.1030) that should be replaced by a newer chipset (10.0.27). I don't know if the DPPO is taking into account particular aspects of this system that make the 14.6.1.1030 the “correct” (even if not the latest) chipset. Perhaps the DPPO should override the Intel utility. Any thoughts?

Why is it showing two different drivers and which one, or both, should I install?

A:Intel Driver Update Utility showing two different drivers

Hi MW,
Depends on your graphics card, with or without HD,
note1 these are generic drivers if you have an OEM install, use the ones from them, unless your having a problem.
note2 if your specs are correct then use your >>Nvidea<< control panel

Recently Windows updated my Intel HD Graphics 630 driver. A few days later the same driver was released on Dell's driver support page.
Is there any correlation between Windows Update and Dell's drivers? Who does update the drivers Microsoft themselves or Dell needs to release the driver to Microsoft?
As this is the first time when Windows updated the driver is this how the Intel HD Graphics drivers are to be kept up-to-date via Windows Update?

A:Windows Update vs Dell Update - Intel HD Graphics 530/630 Driver

ZINGAM,
Referring to the Intel HD graphics driver.
Windows gets code from Intel for the driver and they will implement it in the OS. Dell also gets code from Intel and will release it. Also, Intel will post the driver on their site to download. You can uninstall the Microsoft driver if you choose and install the Dell update driver.

Recently, the WiFi on this particular laptop has been sub-par. Downloading the same file, the WiFi downloads at the rate of 70 kbps (pretty bad) while the Ethernet cable is at 700 kbps ~ 1000 kbps. I know that the Ethernet is almost always faster than the WiFi but the discrepancies are just jarring. I also noted that the signal strength is at maximum so distance isn't an issue. This isn't the case with other devices, such as my phone's WiFi speed, where I can stream HD Youtube videos with no problem.

Possible culprits:

Software:

Whenever I use Intel Driver Update Utility to attempt to fix the problem, it shows that I need to update my WiFi driver and my Bluetooth driver. The weird thing is that after I downloaded and installed those updates, it says that I need to install those same drivers after re-scanning for updates. This tells me that there's something fishy with this laptop's wireless drivers software-wise.

Hardware:

I have an Intel Wireless Dual Band AC 8260 as my wireless driver. I'm not really familiar with these, but I heard somewhere that there are certain frequency speeds (5 GHz, etc...) that need to be configured in order for the driver and the router to be compatible. The weird thing is that I've been using my laptop for 3 months now and it didn't have a problem until two weeks ago, which makes me think that this is a software problem.

Thanks for your help in advance!

A:Weird Intel Driver Update Utility problem? (Wi-Fi driver problem)

Are you on the first Win 10 or the Anniversary version. I noticed when I upgraded with a clean install with anniversary that some drivers are updated to Microsoft installed drivers but aren't 100% compared the first Windows 10 (non insider version) Even with severely outdated drivers all the driver dates are inside Windows are really off. They didn't fix something with drivers and updating them. Nothing extreme but its gonna give some people issues on older machines. I think with insiders earlier on Anniversary are using newish type PC's. My laptop is a 2013 model and nothing special but fully updated/optimized it amazes me. So its gonna take some trial and error with drivers.

I have using DriverMax for the past year and I find it to be usefully as long as you watch which drivers you are updating. Some times driver updated are shown for a device but that device isn't apart of your system. Or DriverMax will show an update for a device that is in your system but the driver may cause BSoD. How do you keep your drivers updated? does anybody know of a good website database to track driver versions?

To test and see if it's a driver issue I installed a older driver (16.8.1). After the older driver was installed e1cexpress errors don't appear in Event Viewer anymore which leads me to believe it's a driver issue, but I'm still curious how do I tell if the NVM Update was applied or not.

This seems to be a timing issue with the new drivers and not a real problem as far as I can tell.
If you go to the Network and Sharing center and select Change adapter settings.

Then right click on the adapter and select Properties.
Select Configure
Select the advanced Tab

Scroll down to Wait for Link and change the value to ON.

This will eliminate the error message.

From the description:

Hi,
I'm a little confused by one of my update options. I was under the impression that windows 7 was using wddm 1.1, and that the wddm 1.0 drivers have been available for quite some time. I checked and the driver I have is wddm 1.0, released 10/28/2008, version number 8.15.10.1590. So why am I being given the option to update to 'pre-release wddm 1.0'? I tried to get more information to check the version number, but I am just redirected to Winqual Help , which doesn't help me any.

I'd like to test out the wddm 1.1 drivers, and I've read that they're available for 7, but I don't think that these are those drivers, unless there is a typo in the driver title.

yes thats right....

wddm is just a driver model...
its up to the manufacture (here intel) to release wddm 1.1 driver
so until then (most likely they wont) they have to release a wddm 1.1

Windows Display Driver Model - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
that should be a good read....

what they mean pre-release means that these drivers are beta drivers (there is a difference between pre-release drivers and pre-release wddm 1.1 drivers)

It always fails, and it always makes my monitor lose the signal as soon as windows loads. The only way to fix it is a system restore, but then the driver just tries to reinstall as soon as the computer is idle or when it restarts. I attempted to hide the update, but it doesn't show up in the list. I've disabled the device, but it just reappears. Is there any way to force windows to stop attempting the update?

Just a general question that I didn't find with a Search --

Does anyone know of a good Utility program that scans your system and applications and then updates all of your drivers, etc. automatically? I know there's something called "Oil Change" but I think that is more of an application updater, isn't it?

Nothing critical, would just like suggestions. BTW, I'm currently using Win98Se but looking at upgrading to XP.

A:Intel Corporation driver update for Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400

Go to Intel | Data Center Solutions, IOT, and PC Innovation Click on Support/Download Drivers and finally automatically find drivers. This will require installing a small Intel update utility. Run that and it will list any applicable Intel drivers for your PC.

That is what I do for the Intel CPU/Video drivers for my i7 3770 CPU.

Dell Update reports there's an update for "Intel HD Graphics Driver". When I click Install Now, it looks like it installed, but it reports the same update again an hour later (or immediately if I force update check).
I have this problem on a XPS 13 9350. This is a recurring problem happening to a lot of people for various updates.
If a Dell assistant reads this, please help us all the way through until it's fixed once and for all. Appreciate it!

Basically I was told to use a driver update utility and it installed the latest drivers and everything. Yes I created a restore point. Now after restarting I cant use the mouse or the keyboard doesnt work. Please help fast. I should have known that microsoft provides driver updates. What can be done?

A:Emergency - Driver Update utility gone wrong

Any drivers you download should be from the manufacturer of the device.  Driver update utilities don't care where the drivers come from and can download drivers which actually will not work with your devices.
 
Use the System Restore to revert the operating system to the way it was prior to using this utility.
 
What driver were you trying to download?

I am running the BFG 6600gt OC card and it had a place in advanced properties where I could tweak the core clock and memory clock freqs. before I updated to the forceware 77.77 driver.

How do I get that option back?

So Trying to update to Windows version 1903 and I ran into an issue. They say I need a newer Rapid Storage driver than the one that Lenovo is providing for my notebook. I am not sure what to do but I noticed people stating that the rapid storage drive is not needed and someting about the iastora.sys file and renaming it to .old. which is fine except I am not sure how to ge to this file and if there are any other steps I need to take.  I'd appreciate any thoughts and help.

Hello CaryguyThanks for using the Lenovo forums.Try to uninstall the driver, and the let the computer try to find it.

Click Start, type Device Manager, and press Enter.
Find and double-click the category of driver you want to uninstall
Right-click the device, and click Uninstall.
Windows will prompt you to confirm the device?s removal. Click OK to remove the driver.
After the uninstallation is complete, reboot your computer as soon as possible.

See if this can help.

I keep getting the VDR TDR Failure (igdkmd64.sys) error.  I open up the Intel Driver Update Utility & it states that it cannot update the driver.Error:  A customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer.  The Intel Driver Update Utlity is not able to update the driver.  Installing a generic Intel driver instead of the customized computer manufacturer driver may cause technical issues.  Contact your computer manufacturer for the latest driver for your computer. I have  version 15.40.25.4463 of Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10. How am I to update this driver?  This is extremely frustrating.  Why would you make a product that is difficult to update? JPaw

This is NOT official HP Customer Support and I, as most other persons on this forum, do not work for HP. This is a peer-to-peer user supported forum for HP products. HP maintains no official presence on this forum and it is unlikely that HP will respond in an official capacity. Any reply from a HP employee represents their own opinion and not that of HP's. It appears you have the latest production release of the Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10. The only other driver listed on Intel's support website is 14.40.26.4474 which is a BETA version. This BETA driver doesn't appear to address the issue you are having. HP hasn't made it difficult to update the driver. The Intel driver installer is what is telling you it can't install the driver. This is because there is a customized version of the driver on the computer and replacing it with a generic driver may cause issues or loss of functionality of the hardware. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Please click the White KUDOS "Thumbs Up" to show your appreciation

My INSPIRON 3459 attempts to update this driver, but it always fails. Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver and Management Console. I have no idea why, but it keeps scanning, downloading, installing: Failure. Anything I should do to get this to install. There is also another Driver that is failing as well. But this never succeeds.

The onboard video that you have really wont support high end gaming.

Hello, In our organization we have a VPN client that is sensative to driver versions.  We have noticed Lenovo System Update is only updating the Lenovo T470 Wireless-AC 8265 drivers to a certain point and has stopped.  That we could tell there did seem to be a problem as previously there was a rapid succession of updates for our T470's and the wireless NICs to a certain point.T470 - 20HES09L00 Would it be possible to have this driver updated? 2018/09/03 - v20.70.3.3 - Lenovo2019/03/06 - v20.120.1.1 - Intel  Thank you,Tony H. 

A:Lenovo T470 - Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 - Lenovo System Update - Wireless AC Driver Update

I noticed this apparent divergence on my T480, so I manually installed thev20.120.1.1 driver direct from the  Intel site. When it got done installing, Device manager (Windows 10 Pro 64-bit) reported that I STILL was using the same version as offered by Lenovo:  v20.70.3.3 - Lenovo

Recently I've been using Intel Driver update utility to keep my drivers in check with what's up to date, but for a while now I've noticed I can't get this spicific one.  It's been bugging me for a while and I'd like to get it updated so this notification will go away.  Where might I go about getting said driver?  I've already looked in the drivers area of the XC603G on the main site.  You're my last hope, Fourms.
