I have been able to download it before. Now it claims that my system is not set up for it. This is a Lenova Ideapad and all the drivers are workly perfectly.
According to the Installon Wizard, I should "Delete the Intel® DSA temporary files". The default location is "C:/ProgramData/Intel/DSA".Is this advsiable ? It is called "Latern Rock" when I I open DSA. Thank you
I am not sure what iDSA has to do with a graphics driver. Are you saying you are having a problem with iDSA?
As for the error message you might get from a graphics driver installation package, if the manufacturer has installed a driver customized in any way, this will prevent the generic drivers from the Intel site from being installed. If you have a laptop, this is typically the case. There are ways to get around this, but understand that, if this is a laptop, doing so could stop certain features (brightness control, switching between graphics solutions, etc.) from working properly.
If you want to proceed, here is the process you need to follow:
Hope this helps,
Thank You so much for your timely answer. It has Intel UHD Graphics 620, version 188.8.131.5262. I am very hesitate to uninstall as the Installation Wizard called for removing the DSA (Lantern Rock) in the context menu. Prior to all this, I simply installed the new version on top of the old. Do I risk losing the original UHD Graphics 620 with no recourse ?
Every time you install an updated driver, you lose the previous. No worries. You can always reset to the version on your vendor's site.
LOL! No, this is Microsoft making a more-minimal version of Windows available for the OEM (new PC) market. They want to make less available in the version of Windows that comes with the PC so that they can get folks upgrading through their App Store - and hopefully purchasing other apps that cost real money. Their app store has not been the revenue stream that they want it to be. BTW, if you have a new PC and it came with Windows S, I believe that, as least right now, you can upgrade to the non-S version (i.e. standard Windows Home) for free.
So let's go back to the beginning (where be probably should have started). What kind of PC do you have? Specifically, is it a laptop or an All-in-One or is it a just normal, desktop PC? What is the model number and who is the manufacturer? Does it have two graphics engines? That is, does it also have NVIDIA or AMD graphics?
Ok, next question is whether Lenovo modified the Intel HD Graphics driver to support any special features of this laptop. Only they can answer this question; you should call them directly; it takes too long to get any kind of answer from their support folks when using their forums.
If their answer is no, you can uninstall the existing driver and then install the latest available driver from the Intel site. Actually, if their answer is yes, then you could still do this, but you would lose the special features that the original drivers provided.
