    Trouble Updating Windows 8.1 Graphics Drivers




      Operating System: Windows 8.1


      Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000


      Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M  CPU  @ 2.60GHz



      Samsung ATIV Book 4 NP470R5E-K01UB 15.6'' Laptop




      I originally went to the Intel website and used the Utility tool to check for any available drivers. Originally, the Utility recommended Driver version I tried installing it but it told me


      "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer


      Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer’s manufacturer. Setup will exit. "


      I then went online with research and stumbled onto this forum

      Windows 8.1 HD4000 cannot update driver



      I followed what the Correct Answer  suggested  and I uninstalled the Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000, then restarted my computer.


      I tried running the Intel executable I downloaded before but it still did not work (The same error appeared). My laptop automatically downloaded the default driver (Driver Version: I even tried installing it manually by


      right clicking Intel(R) Graphics 4000 under the Display adapters in Device Manager and placing the correct directory

      C:\Intel Drivers\Graphics


      But that still did not work and my laptop reinstalled the same driver ( ). I don't why why its doing this. What should I do?

      Tried going to the Samsung site to download any drivers there but could not find any. All of their available updates are old (2013) and are Windows 7 updates.


      Any help would be appreciated.
