Hi G2Gmanager, welcome to the Forum.

Have a look in Device Manager & see if there are any Yellow warnings on Display Adapters. If so Right Click on it & see if there is a driver update needed.

Correct driver is installed per intel site. The driver shows to be correct and has no explanation mark next to it. Looks like the path is missing as per the screenshot.
