Hello, oromine. Thank you very much for sharing your issue with the Intel Communities Team.
For me to assist you better, I would like to know, what is the version of the Intel® Driver & Support Assistant you are using? Additionally, can you please provide me with the log files of the software? Please find the files on C:\ProgramData\Intel\DSA. To attach a file, you must click the “Attach” option on the bottom right-hand corner of the response box.
Intel Driver and Support Assistant Installer 18.104.22.168
I don't currently have the Intel Driver & Support Assistant installed, after implementing a Macrium image restore, Thus, no log files, and I'd prefer not to reinstall it since it's appears to be useless for my purposes.
I like to manually "download" my drivers locally and install them at my convenience, without having to install additional software, keeping my system as clean and uncluttered as possible.
Why is there no portable version of Intel Driver & Support Assistant?
The problem with Firefox has been well documented and unsolved, as far as I can see, for years,
But that's not a major concern for me, since apparently the Intel Driver & Support Assistant works as designed in Internet Explorer. Bottom line, IMO, it just doesn't do a very good job.
Maybe, instead of us focusing on the flaws of the Intel Driver & Support Assistant, you can advise me where I can get a confirmation of the proper driver version for my system, where to find it, and a method I can easily count on to do it in the future.
Thank you very much for your reply, oromine.
In this case, for you to verify the latest drivers for your system, please go to the Intel® Download Center. On the search bar type the model of your processor and then filter the search depending on your OS version. In order to install the update, you can either run the .exe file or the .zip file. Besides the Intel® Driver & Support Assitant, we do not have any other software for you to receive this type of notifications.
Thank you for your response, oromine.
Allow me to share with you that the Intel® Download Center does not recognize which graphics version you are currently having on your system. You can double check this information by running the DxDiag* command or on Device manager. Furthermore, the reason of why the Intel® Driver & Support Assistant was not installing the latest drivers could be a bug or an error on the software, that was why I requested previously the log files of the software.
