Can a system restore minimize that risk, Steve?

Yes, if you do a system image before doing it. It should restore the OS just like it was when the image was taken. A system restore, is pretty iffy, if you know what I mean.

Hello Essenbe,
Thanks for coming in on this. I have run the Intel Driver update again. It finds one Driver to update as follows
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows 7 64 (zip)
Installed is vers 8.15.10.1930
It offers me the newer version 15.12.-75.4.64.1930 dated 10/2/2009
Again downloaded and attempted install, with same result---failed. No reason given.Black screen much worse this time around.
I have checked EVERY item in Device Manager and run the Update Driver option on all, with the same result--the best driver is installed. I can't find anything in Device Manager that Driver Intel is showing as out of date/old.
I guess I am going to leave things as they are, until something goes wrong and take it from there.
It's running well now and no further BSOD's or anything. Should something happen--I'll be back.
Thanks again---Robbie

I wish it would work for you but have no idea why it won't. Let us know if you have further problems. Mayber we will be able to come up with a better solution.

Probably here is the reason that resists the driver to be installed ......

Attachment 339114
A graphics card may be a solution in that case.

Nice find Arc. That probably is why.

But surely if Intel Driver update tells me the later Driver is available --it should install.
If it is not compatible to the machine/ hardware installed --it would not be offered.
The Driver Utility checks the installed hardware so as to know which Driver is the correct one, surely?

I guess the update is available for the chip, but that is not compatible with the OS.
