I see no system specs for you to allow me to help.

Please post your full computer specs.

Without even knowing which graphics card you have, we cannot give good advice as to where to get a driver that doesn't crash your computer.

Have a look here and select your computer from the model list. I would think you need the Intel VGA driver.

Best to right-click setup then choose Run as Administrator. It should then install without a problem other than you may need to restart your computer.

hi seavixen32,

I just installed by double click yesterday and all the installation is done. Will that be ok and fine for now?

Anyway what is wrong with the driver actually? I have been using the same computer for more than a year and nothing happened last time.

Yes, everything should be OK now.

As to why you were informed you needed a driver update, you can probably thank the Windows 7 driver database for that. It is constantly being updated with new drivers, which in many cases can be pushed to you via Windows Updates.

There's nothing to worry about. Just look at it as Windows 7 looking after your system.
