Could be due to licensing restrictions between Intel and Sony in that the reference Intel drivers won't install on a Sony computer. ATI and Nvidia have the same sort of thing in regards to most their mobility video cards/chipsets, that's why a modded INF has to be used in most cases to get the drivers to install.

If that is what is happening with the Intel Update utility, I wouldn't even want to begin to try and modify the INF's for all the bits and pieces that would need it.

As far as increasing the amount of memory the video card can use this probably sums it up best,

Changing the Amount of System Memory Used for On-Board Video - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

  • Dynamic Memory
    This method reserves a pool of memory to share between programs and the graphics display. When the graphics display requires more memory the system provides it. When the graphics display requires less memory, that memory is released for use by programs. Dynamic Memory may be used in combination with Fixed Memory.
I realize that is for Intel graphics, but I have a feeling that is what is happening with that 8400M.

It seems it is for him, which is why it's strange, as it installs for me with no issues, but if he's getting an error message telling him he doesn't have an intel chipset, then I have no idea why that would be?

But still doesn't explain why you're unable to install the chipset drivers.
