Intel® HD Graphics for first generation Intel® Core processors only receive Microsoft* inbox drivers in Windows* 8. You may want to make sure this is the driver you are using.
In regards of the Intel® Management Engine driver, the best recommendation is to get it from the system manufacturer’s website since the version we provide is intended to be used with Intel® Desktop Boards.
Thanks for the help, however, they only link to Intels windows 7 driver.
so any further help would be appreciated
You may want to run Windows* Update in order to obtain the correct drivers.
