Win 10 Graphic Driver

Q: Win 10 Graphic Driver

When I did clean install of Win 10...I used Intel Graphic Driver of my previous Win 7 system. My laptop is HP so I downloaded the graphic driver from HP for my laptop model.
When I was installing graphic driver Win 10 mentioned the graphic driver installed on the system is newer to the driver you are installing. I guess it was Win 10 included graphic driver. I continued installing my graphic driver.
I am occasionally getting graphic driver not responded & recovered on Win 10.
Should I uninstall my graphic driver & let Windows Updates to update the graphic driver that it mentioned was newer than mine?
Or should I install the latest graphic driver from Intel website?

When installing latest graphic driver should I uninstall the installed driver or it will be upgraded?

Any other driver I should download the latest version from the manufacturer itself & install for Win 10?

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.)

I always prefer to download from the manufactures website way before letting microsoft find one for me, and i always do a clean install of the driver.

A:Graphic Card Driver (you must install intel driver first)

Hi Serious Gamer,

You could try running the Intel Driver Update Utility. Completely safe directly from the Intel site, it should find any drivers that our out of date and update them. Intel® Driver Update Utility

I know you said you ran multiple programs like that and if you've already tried that one, just let me know. I was trying to find a specifications sheet about your friends laptop, best I could find was this. Product data-sheet Toshiba Satellite L70-A-13P notebooks (PSKNEE-03X02WFR)

Does his laptop have the discrete graphics card or the on-board graphics?

Hello everybody,

I've got a problem with my graphic driver. When I use a recent graphic driver for my graphic card, my laptop just messes up after a while when i'm playing. Messes up, in other words I get a black screen after a 0.1 second glimpse of a BSOD.

I've tried using older graphic drivers, but my game-play quality just drops way down to splatter on the ground, and its really very frustrating.

I've also tried to search for a new version of my BIOS, and there isnt one.

I've got the latest Directx.

I just.. don't know what to do.. So thank you for your help

Cheers,

A:Graphic Driver

Hi,

You may simply need to select a higher resolution to get your normal display back.
Right click on your desktop -> Select Properties -> In the Display Properties, select Settings and try increasing the Screen resolution.

If that doesn't work, you can find the drivers for that Latitude here:

http://support.dell.com/support/dow...en&SystemID=LAT_PNT_P3_C400&catid=-1&impid=-1

The graphics (video) drivers are at the bottom of the list, installing the latest ones should restore your display to its normal setting again.

Hi, i have Lenovo G570 with GPU AMD RADEON HD 6370m I want to install - latest drivers for your laptop, but drivers who are on the Lenovo website are too old and those in the AMD website incompatible if anybody has a clue how to install new drivers let me share.
Sorry for my english
 

A:Graphic driver

For laptops, only the laptop manufacturer has the correct drivers because their drivers are custom-made to match the custom-made hardware (that's why drivers direct from AMD's website aren't compatible). There is no way around this.

What's wrong with the existing graphics driver anyway? If it works okay, leave it alone. Updating drivers is not compulsory!
Don't assume that newer drivers are always better so you must install them. They can often cause problems where none existed before.

If Lenovo don't have a newer graphics driver, that means your existing one is up to date.

Hi, I just updated my intel graphic drivers, not sure if this part is common or not but partway through the installation the display went off, then seemed to show a glitched display for about 1 second, black then the normal display returned, the installation then rapidly deleted a load of what i presume were the overidden or old version files and finished as a normal installation would. I closed the dialog box then got the windows message "this program might not have installed correctly"
If the graphic drivers hadn't installed right surely the system wouldn't be displaying with my normal settings and would have switched to the motherboard very basic drivers?
It did install an audio driver as well from the same install program and those hd audio drivers aren't ones I use as I have realtek audio and drivers for that.
So wondering why I would have gotten the possible installation error message.

A:Graphic driver install

Semantics - It didn't say it hadn't installed correctly, it said it "may* not have" installed correctly.


"Might not have" is bad grammar - See Microsoft Grammar & Spell Chequer.

A:Graphic Driver Issues

Hi: It looks like even though you ran the graphics driver, the driver did not install the graphics adapter. You can tell that by looking at your screen shot where it shows a Standard VGA Adapter. You should be seeing an AMD Radeon HD graphics adapter listed there. See if manually installing the graphics driver resolves the problem. To manually install the driver, go to the device manager and click to expand the Display Adapters device category. Click on the Standard VGA Adapter.  Click on the driver tab.  Click on Update Driver. Select the Browse my computer for driver software option, and browse to the driver folder that was created when you ran the graphics driver file. That folder will be located in C:\SWSetup\sp59730. Make sure the Include Subfolders box is checked and see if the driver installs that way.

I bought a new Samsung notebook with a core i7 CPU and an (additional)
AMD Radeon HD8870M graphic chip.

I guess the AMD Radeon chip is only for those users who are not satisfied with the (speed) of the Intel-built-in graphic chip.

What else are the advantages of using the AMD Radeon display chips over the Intel built-in graphic? Do I eventually miss some power options?

From my point of view I am ok with the Intel-graphic GPU.

Do I really have to install the additional AMD (Catalyst) drivers to let the notebook work properly?

Currently I installed only the Intel graphic drivers and the system seem to work fine.

As far as I can see the AMD graphic driver package installs many, many stuff (Control Center, Profile handler, utility, help for various languages,....). I hate these frills. Is there a way to only install the AMD drivers only - without the Catalyst stuff around?

Peter

A:When/why do I need a second graphic driver (Intel + AMD-ATI)?

New notebooks nowadays use dual graphic processors to help save power. When just browsing the internet and doing work on the desktop, the intel chip is used to save power. When you demand more graphic intense programs (games, HD Video), the ATI card kicks in to provide the best performance.

If you don't play lots of games, then the ATI card is not required.

And yes, you NEED to install the AMD Catalyst Control Center (CCC) for this option to function. The software (as of my current knowledge) is required to be installed for the drivers to work correctly.

Hope I answered some questions

While playing Fallout 3 i have been experiencing an issue with my graphics driver crashing. The game freezes, and than it dumps to a black screen. When the desktop loads back up my wallpaper is black (as opposed to the desktop slide show). I have installed the latest nVidia driver, and it made no difference.

System specs:
Mobo - MSI P6N Platinum LGA 775
CPU - Intel Quad Core Q6600
RAM - 6GB DDR2 800
Video - nVidia 8800 GTX 784 DDR3\
Sound - Onboard Realtek HD
OS - Windows 7 RC2

The game is modded, but I didn't include any mods that chanxge the games graphics. The mods are all content adders. I have the graphic settings maxed out on the game. My system can handle the load, so I am not sure why the driver is crashing. I have seen this issue posted on other forums, but there were no solutions. Is this just an issue tied to the RC, or is it a conflict between W7 and the driver? If there is a solution I would love it...I am sick of my system crashing.

Most likely heat related. Run with a room fan blowing inside the open case to test. If no crashes, you have your answer.

I downloaded the lastest Driver from Nvidia site because the one on the Toshiba Driver download page is very old, released in 2009. I went to the Nvidia site to get the lastest but it told me you need to get specific driver from you manufacturer although the Nvidia's latest driver support 9700M GTS.

Further research revealed I need modded INF for the Nvidia Driver installer to work because if I don't do it I get the error "Hardware not detected" After using the modded INF from laptopvideo2go.com, I get the following bluescreen of death.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this? Where can I get the latest manufacturer's video card? How do I directly contact Toshiba?

> After using the modded INF from laptopvideo2go.com, I get the following bluescreen of death.
Looks like the BSOD appears because the inf file isn?t compatible.

> Can anyone tell me how to fix this?
Well, simply don?t use it? or use the Toshiba driver even if its old, it works.

> Where can I get the latest manufacturer's video card?
I presume this is already the newest version which is available.
I checked also the [Toshiba US driver page|http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=2140530& rpn=PQF55U&modelFilter=F55-Q5041&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=804517 ] and it seems that this is the same driver like the one on the Toshiba EU driver page.

> How do I directly contact Toshiba?
Maybe hotline? Otherwise in cases your hardware starts to malfunction, you can contact the Toshiba service in your country but I assume the guys will not be able to provide any newer drivers for this unit since all drivers are available on driver pages.

Hello, I'd like to report that my ThinkPad Yoga 260 systematically has a bug since I updated it to Win 10 15063.447.I have a Lenovo Thinkvision external monitor hooked to a Lenovo OneLink+ docking station.I also have the PC screen turned on, as an extended monitor. Each time that the monitor turns off when I lock the PC, the monitor will not display anything, despite the monitor led turning green. The workaround is that I unplug the docking station from the PC, and plug it back it right after, and then the monitor displays the image correctly. I think it is a graphic driver issue. Thank you. Best regards,

Whenever I try to watch any video, play game or use google talk, then I get this message saying "The igxprd32 display driver has stopped working normally. Save your work and reboot the system to restore full display functionality. The next time you reboot the machine a dialog will be displayed giving you a chance to upload data about this failure to Microsoft."

After this the screen goes to 640 × 480 in resolution and the colors are also in 4bit (lowest). I am using Intel Graphic Media Accelerator.

If I remember correct it was version 2.11.15.0

If there's any update or anything that I can do to cure this problem. Please help me.

Thanks.
