    Trying to update video driver and current video driver incorrectly reported as newer.

    Aulis

      Hi,

       

      • Brand and Model: Lenovo ThinkCentre M91P
      • CPU Model #: Intel Core i5 2400
      • Operating System: Windows 7 SP1
      • Current graphics driver version: 8.15.10.2622 w/ driver date of 10/01/2012.

       

      Video game (Spore), launched for the first time, reported that I was running an older video driver and recommended that I update.

       

      Downloaded what I think is latest video driver for my system from Intel (version 15.28.24.4229 with a release date of 6/5/2015). Ran installer and received the following Question / Warning:

      This computer currently contains driver versions newer than the versions you are about to install. Are you sure you want to overwrite the following drivers with the older versions?

        • Intel Display Audio (6.16.0.3154)
        • Intel HD Graphics (8.15.10.2622)

       

      This strikes me as odd as the current driver appears to be an older version.

       

      I went to Lenovo's website and downloaded what seems like the latest video driver for my system (version 8.15.10.2752 with a release date of 2012-06-11). I tried to install this driver -- which also appears to be newer than the one currently installed -- and received the same Question / Warning as above.

       

      Two questions come to my mind:

      1. Why is it that the my system would report that the current drivers are newer than the drivers I'm looking to install?
      2. Is it safe to install the drivers from either Intel or Lenovo and, if so, are there any special steps that I should take in doing so?

       

      Thanks for your help.
