At the above link inside the big blue box at the top of that page click "Run Intel Driver Update Utility."

You may prompted to allow. Do so.
It wil give you the newest driver. If you have the latest already it will tell you that also.

Might be good to bookmark/add to favorites for future use.

It is probably in the link that Prof posted but I'll save you looking,

Graphics — Older Intel® graphics controllers and Microsoft Windows 7* operating system

Are you looking for graphics drivers for Windows 7*?

The Microsoft Windows 7* operating system (OS) supports two different graphics driver models: the Windows* Display Driver Model (WDDM 1.0 & 1.1) and the older Windows* XP Driver Model (XPDM). WDDM drivers provide the 3D graphical user interface experience to users. XPDM drivers provide an interface that visually resembles the Windows XP user interface and do not support Windows 7 OS premium features such as the Microsoft Aero* user interface.
Only XPDM drivers** are available for the following older Intel® graphics controllers:
  • Mobile Intel® 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express Chipset Family
  • Intel® 82915G/82910GL Express Chipset Family
  • Intel® 82865G Graphics Controller
  • Intel® 82852/82855 Graphics Controller
  • Intel® 82845G Graphics Controller
  • Intel® 82830M Graphics Controller
  • Intel® 82815 Graphics Controller
  • Intel® 82810 Graphics Controller
and for the XP driver that it is referring too,
