I am new to the forums that I want to address an issue regarding the Intel Q965/Q963 Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1) on my Lenovo ThinkCentre M55p. The problem with the driver I tried to reinstall was it causes many random reboots and there is no BSOD reporting it on Event Viewer. However, I checked it is Event 41 and has no problems for months. It's not the power supply or something, it's this.
The PC originally ran Windows XP, Vista, and 7. And now I am running Windows 8 64-bit. Could anyone give a solution how to prevent the random restarts caused by a graphics driver?
Thanks for joining the Graphics community.

Drivers for Windows 7 32 bit:
tried the 64 bit version. my PC is not compatible .
tried the 32 bit version, same result, did not work.
tried using the ZIP version, same result.
will be happy to try something else.
In that case it would be a good idea having Lenovo involve on this matter since they may be a known isuse with their product that we do not know about. Also you can try with a fresh installation of windows without any windows updates and see how it behaves.
ok. please follow the steps.

I have the same computer ... with a Q6600 CPU, 8GB RAM and SSD for the S.O. (Windows 10), and it works very well, except that the graphics card does not support WebGl .. and that limits the possibilities of seeing some websites (cinema, series, etc.). Intel should provide a driver for this version of Windows.
Intel Q965/Q963 Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1) on my Lenovo ThinkCentre M55p
This chipset is not suppported on WIndows 10, nor is your processor. There is no driver for Windows 10, except for the Microsoft generic driver which lack performance and features.
Solution? Purchace a new laptop.
