Windows 10 Drivers for Intel G45/G43 Express Chipset

I'm wondering where I can find the most updated driver for the G45/G43 Express Chipset for machines running the Windows 10 operating system. It's a 64 bit computer and I can't find anything online. I had seen a link to a beta driver Intel released but the link was broken so I wasn't able to download from it. Anyone have a link to the beta driver that works or another way to get the updated drivers?

Before you say it, yes I know the drivers are allegedly available through the Windows Updater, but it hasn't been installed as far as I know, and all updates have been installed. The game that is mainly suffering from the lack of the driver is Minecraft since it needs a more recent driver version than what I have. It ran just fine on Windows 7 when a supported driver was installed, but I no longer have that luxury.

Thank you in advanced.

For this chipset G45/G43, it have reached the end of support life, for that reason there will be no windows 10 driver. You can try with the latest one in our website, please check.

I also have a problem with this graphics card. I have a 27" display (ViewSonic VX2739WM) but after upgrading to Windows 10, the card sends the display as though it's a 28" screen. Is there any way that this can be resolved?

Hi

Unfortunately there are no drivers available for Windows 10 using the G45/G43 chipsets.

You can see the supported operating systems here:

Intel will not provide future software updates to support new operating systems or improve compatibility with third-party devices and software products.

Responding to a 6-year old thread for something where the Microsoft generic driver is used.
