Windows 7: Intel Graphics Driver "Do Not Reach Minimum Requirements"

Intel Graphics Driver "Do Not Reach Minimum Requirements"

So I just re installed windows 7 on my system. I have done this several times before, and I had a package of drivers which I would always use in the same order. In the past I have had no issues with this, it all worked smoothly. This time however, I have been plagued with blue screens and errors.

Among these is an issue with the Intel Graphics drivers. When I attempt to run the Intel Graphics installers, both straight from Intel, and from my motherboard manufacturer, I get an error "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software". I am using the 64 bit version to go with my 64 bit OEM version of 7 professional, and I am using the HD4000 drivers for my ivybridge 3770k. The latest version I tried and failed with was Driver Revision: 15.31.3.64.3071, the latest on Intel's site. My other specs can be seen in my sig.

I have spent some time Googling for answers, but they generally involve solutions like "Uninstall your current version and re install the 64 bit version for your OS", but I haven't got a version already installed, and I am already trying to install the 64 bit version. Or "You aren't using the right version of the drivers", but I am virtually certain I am using the right version, unless I've forgotten which CPU I have.....which I haven't.

Has anyone else ever experienced and solved this issue, or does anyone know a possible solution?

Thanks,
Tom

Have you just tried running windows update to get the drivers ?

Why are you installing graphics drivers for the cpu, aren`t you using just the 7950 ?

I figured it was "proper" to install all the drivers for all the hardware in your system, though I'm happy to be proven wrong in this instance.

Aside from that though, windows is all up to date and to the best of my knowledge the HD4000 graphics aren't installed. Of course if this is completely superfluous, then great, a little less I need to bother with .

Did you check the options in BIOS to see if the HD4000 was disabled/enabled?

That could well be it...Ill have a look tomorrow. Though that could be irrelevant if there isn't any advantage in installing that driver..is there any advantage if im only using my 7950 and not virtue mvp or anything?

Plague of errors I'd check ram and power supply for faults and errors.

Well, MVP is useful. But yeah, don't lose your sleep over it if you cannot fix this easily.

I have the Intel 4500MHD in my other laptop, and the 3000 in this Sandy-Bridge i7 2670QM laptop.

I always use drivers from the card/chip maker, rather than those from the PC maker's (in this case
Acer,). I've found that the drivers that come with Windows Update are, to be charitable, pathetic
as a rule, with a lot of issues, mainly related to gaming.

Usually, in order to get the 'right' drivers to install, I must first un-install the ones supplied by MS or
installation will fail. As you say that you haven't installed any drivers, but it's asking you to remove
drivers, this could possibly be your issue. Not saying it is, but it could be worth a try.

In Device Manager, check to see if your GFX driver has been supplied by Intel or Microsoft. See the
screenshot (of my 3000 chip) below. If you see anything to do with WDDM (?) or Microsoft, then that
could be your problem.

Hope I've been able to be of some assistance.

Wenda.

Actually, Tomha, it is I who should be thanking you for asking
your question.

You see, while reading through my reply to your question, I
realised that my own driver was out of date. Silly me.

Fixed now, and thanks.

Wenda.

I have a 3770K also, and have never been able to install the Intel HD graphics driver. My assumption is I have a discrete GPU, as you do, and therefore the Intel graphics is not used. That may be different if you set up MVP/ LucidLogix in the bios, which does use the Intel Graphics.
