When I scan my system, the Driver & Support Assistant shows that I have no updates to install. However, it also shows my current graphics drivers as being nearly a year out of date (Latest version: x.x.x.6577, released February 25th, 2019; Installed Version: x.x.x.6025, released April 25th, 2018).
I am having trouble with some video editing software that I'm told a driver update will most likely fix. If there is some important reason why the D&S Assistant is choosing not to update the drivers, then let me know. But if installing the newer drivers manually would likely spell only improvements and success for my computer and my life, then I'm all for it.
What is the make and model of your device? What is your processor model number?
If your device is a laptop, you should use ONLY the driver provided by the laptop manufacturer. There are reasons for this, as the manufacturer may have modified or customized the driver for their hardware.
Now, all of that said, 6577 is the latest and is the "DCH" driver. Take a backup of your system (or at least your data), and review this thread:
All standard disclaimers apply.
Sorry, I meant for you to review this thread:
I was afraid you'd say that about the laptop. Yeah, I have an "HP ENVY x360 Convertible 15m-bp1xx". It's a refurb that seems a little Frankensteined together. As an example and to answer your question, the sticker on it boasts an Intel Core i7, but the processor is actually an Intel Core i5-8250U.
I haven't decided to install the drivers just yet. I've saved the link above in case I do, but if it's really that integral for my laptop, I'm not certain I want to update them. I suppose it comes to what the worst that could happen is. I mean, if things go wrong and it just means I'll have to reboot in Safe Mode and uninstall the drivers, that's one thing. But if something could actually be damaged, that's another.
For the time being, I found a (wildly inconvenient) workaround for the problem with the video editor. I would definitely like to actually fix the problem, but not at the potential cost of my hardware. It's certainly a dilemma.
