Windows 7: Question about installing driver

Question about installing driver

Hi folks, my question is I am running Win 7 64 bit and my graphics performance is very low , lower than it normally is . I went to my computer manufactures website and downloaded the latest driver but the computer says it's older than the one i currently have .

Any ideas as to how to solve my poor graphics rating , the computer is all set to default values.


One more question, do you have to uninstall the driver that's currently in there before installing the new one or does that happen automatically.

As you have an Intel CPU, go to and let it scan your PC for devices. It will find the I5 and its graphics and if the driver is out of date it will list the latest driver and allow you to download and install it.

I have a desktop with an i5 and the graphics are not that great. I finally installed a separate video card. But, you don't have that luxury with a laptop.
