Intel® HD 3000 supports only Microsoft® Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 operating systems. Your computer is installing a generic driver from Microsoft® Windows. Now, you have a dedicated graphics card from NVIDIA* 555M. Double check with Nvidia* if this card supports Microsoft® Windows 10 and look for compatible drivers.
Usually a dedicated graphics card disables the embedded graphics. If you have switchable graphics on your computer, it is necessary to install a third driver, it is provided by the system manufacturer.
@mikec_intel, I suppose I couldn't have expected an actually helpful response; I'm not really aggravated, because I half-expected it. But the other half of me expected someone might chime in with a potential solution based on the information provided.
However, to touch on a couple points;
- If it were a Microsoft Generic Driver, it wouldn't say Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000, correct?
- My NVIDIA GT555M is fully supported in Windows 10. GeForce GT 555M | GeForce
- I'm not going to touch on the Optimus technology, google or the previously linked page should provide that information for you. Even with that said, the screenshot I've provided above should prove to you that the NVIDIA card disabling the embedded graphics is not the case.
Again, even though I'm fully aware of the support matrix; this page suggests that a beta driver is available for Windows 10, note that the HD3000 is on this list.
I've chatted with folks in other forums, who have had success getting the driver installed. Since W10 Update isn't working for me in this sense, I was hoping that the driver might be made otherwise readily available.
As the thread above suggested, it is necessary to use a Microsoft® Windows generic graphics driver. Microsoft® Windows 10 is not supported by Intel ® HD 2000 and 3000.
@mikec_intel, stellar work sir, keep on keepin' on.
