Hello lmlim,


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.


The Intel® Arc™ Graphics Windows* DCH Driver is for Intel® Arc™ A-Series Graphics. In your case, you need to download the Intel® Graphics – Windows* DCH Drivers (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/19344/intel-graphics-windows-dch-drivers.html


Keep in mind that installing this Intel generic graphics driver will overwrite your computer manufacturer (OEM) customized driver. OEM drivers are handpicked and include customized features and solutions to platform-specific issues, so we always recommend installing the latest driver provided by the OEM.


Let me know if you have any concerns.
