Hello, thank you for replying.
Please understand that I'm not asking if this legacy GPU officially supports Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. I am already aware that this GPU is discontinued. I'm sorry for the misleading title. I just couldn't think of a succinct way of putting my question as a title.
My question is: How do I have a newer driver which is apparently compatible with Windows 8.1 despite Intel only having drivers for Windows 7? And should I try to use the driver from Intel instead of the one that came from Windows Update?

Thank you for reaching the Intel Communities.
I understand you would like to find a driver that works for your system, and I can certainly clarify that inquiry for you.
In this case, I regret to inform you there are no drivers released by Intel(R) that work with your system and Windows 8.1 or 10*.
One option you can opt to is looking for drivers at 3rd party websites, but please remember those drivers (if available) will not be official and Intel(R) does not recommend using them or takes responsibility of what they can do to your computer.
If further questions are present, feel free to contact us back.
