    Cant update to latest graphics driver




      I am trying to update my graphics driver to the latest version. I keep using the Automatic Intel Update Utility software and it tells me that this is the driver that i need to update to: Intel® HD Graphics 4000 ( and it tells me my current version is, however whenever I try to update to the newer version it gives me I believe 3 different error messages (randomly chosen) such as: "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer. Setup will exit."  or "The operating system is not supported".


      I have tried hp's site as well and they dont have an updated driver version for my computer.


      Here are my computer specs:
