I want to update my GPU to the latest version. When I check for updates through the Device Manager or Intel Support Assistant, it says I am up to date. However, there are way newer versions on the intel website itself. I tried to update it manually using the igfx_win10_100.8190.exe file given on the website, but after I click on that downloaded file to further the install process, I receive an error message that says:
"The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer."
This is my current laptop information:
HP Pavilion Notebook; version F.09
Operating System - Microsoft Windows 10 Home (64-bit)
Processor- IntelCore i3-6100U CPU @ 2.30GHz, 2304 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s) (version: 10.0.18362.693)
Graphics- Intel HD Graphics 520 (version: 184.108.40.20636, date: 10/17/2017)
After researching myself online, a user fixed this issue by uninstalling their out-of-date GPU and driver. They restarted their computer and the restart allowed them to run the new drivers, bypassing incompatibility issues.
HOWEVER, I only have the one out-of-date GPU driver installed on my laptop, and am afraid of uninstalling it and the system going haywire for not having a second GPU to take over. When I try to manually update and download the newest GPU driver, it doesn't let me download it at all because of the error message provided above.
HOWEVER HOWEVER, I do not know a lot about how computers work, so maybe the above case wouldn't happen at all and I should just go ahead and try uninstalling. That is why I am here seeking guidance on this issue!
How on earth do I properly and successfully update to the newest GPU driver without running into an error message?
