Looking for some help in updating my graphics drivers... The computer is about 1 year 4 months old. It is a Dell kit with Intel Core I5. You can fancy a look at all those specs in my dxdiag which will be below. For the last month or so my computer has been hanging while playing "League of Legends", I thought initially it was my latency as my ping has been as high as 400ms... (average 75-100) but the whole screen is actually freezing; not just characters and enemies. I can't move the camera or click any of the buttons on the screen. Anyways, read on their technical forums 99% of the time this is due to out of date graphics drivers. I checked my dxdiag and noticed mine were still original... not updated since October 09. For whatever reason when I try to update these through the Intel download center is is not allowing me.
I believe this is the link I should be downloading for my computer but I could be mistaken.
When I try to install this file it says it is not compatible with my computer. I've tried the 32-bit version as well... When I try to auto-update on the Intel website it tells me I have some incompatible custom driver (this can't be the case) and that I would need to contact the manufacturer to obtain the proper driver.

SOLVED (I hope)
Ok, try this, go to HP and download their latest custom driver... then go back to intel and download this :http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20676&ProdId=3231&lang=eng&OSVersion=Windows%207%20(64-bit)*&DownloadType=Drivers
I'm using a Toshiba R835 and this worked for me. I'm now running .2559.
Here's the toshiba custom driver i downloaded first before the intel one.
Let me know if that solved it.
