Hi there,
I am facing a problem here. I want to update my graphics card driver but I cannot find the driver for my graphics card. I have an intel core 2 duo processor and an intel(r) q35 express chipest family graphics card and 8gb RAM. I would be very grateful if someone can help me with this.
Regards,
Alyan

Are you using Windows 10?  If so, there is no intel driver available.

Point of fact, there is no graphics engine in the Core 2 Duo/Quad processors. It is actually built into the chipset (into the Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH)) included on the motherboard. Regardless, Al is correct; Intel does not support the use of these older graphics engines with Windows 10. Microsoft provides a basic compatibility driver that can be used with these legacy processors and chipsets. Its capabilities are ancient and its performance miserable - but it works - and it's all there is.

Sorry,
