Issue updating Intel HD Graphics

Hey. I'm just wondering why I keep getting the message "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer".

I tried numerous times to update, but this message keeps popping up.

Thanks

Sounds like you have a proprietary system, probably built by dell or hp.
They sometimes change stuff in the chipsets to save costs.
It's likely the update will not apply for you because only the one provided by the manufacturer of your system will.

Always go to the source for your drivers. You don't have anything filled out in system specs, so we can't go any farther without more information.

Dear @OP,
DeaconFrost is dead right about system specs. Kindly fill them this Way:http:// http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/180324-system-info-see-your-system-specs.html

Once you give us the model number,etc of your HP lappy,guys will be glad to point you in the right direction. Downloading drivers from third party sites has caused me grief many a times. The Intel Driver website is comprehensive and you should be able to locate the correct Graphics driver.

best wishes,
