Hey Everyone,

Can someone please help me out. When I tried updating my graphics driver because I couldnt play a game. After I started updating my driver it

gave me this error:

The driver being installed on this computer is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the

appropriate driver for your computer`s manufacturer.

Sep-up was cancelled.

I checked twice and the file I downloaded was ment for my graohics card, I even used the utility to check again. Can someone please help

me as soon as posible.

Hi Alkesh,

This is the link where you can get the driver:

http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/CS-025753.htm http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/CS-025753.htm

Please bear in mind that if you are using an OEM laptop with Intel Chipset, the drivers are not the same.

Then you will need to get the drivers from the Manufacturer's Website like (HP, Dell etc)

Other than this, I dont have any suggestion.

Kind Regards,

Aryan

Huh. The only OEM I've seen that doesn't use the Intel GMA Driver is Dell. In the last couple years I've used laptops from HP, Apple, Toshiba, and Lenovo, all of which use the Intel drivers.

Hi

It is possible to update your driver with a generic Intel(R) driver however, you will loose any OEM customizations made to the OEM driver installed with your system. If you understand that and wish to update the driver to the latest available for your graphics controller see this "how to" document.

You can get the latest driver for your system that can be used for this here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProductID=2991&DwnldID=17398&strOSs=156&OSFullName=Windows%20Vista*%20Ultimate,%2032-bit%20version&lang=eng Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows Vista* 32(zip)
