I'm not an expert on the chipset files, but going by the model information you are giving, I would try running this update: Download INF Update Utility - Primarily for Intel® 6, 5, 4, 3, 900 Series Chipsets. This is the one file on the long list that would give you the latest update. The thing is, the chipset INF files tell Windows the names of some of the devices and do not actually install or update any drivers. So I doubt that the INF file update will fix anything.
When you use the Intel Driver Update Utility, which driver does it say you need? What version of Windows are you running? I've occasionally seen the utility say a driver update has failed when in reality the driver update succeeded.
By the way, I completely agree with "Not prepared to pay a fair amount for just one driver." You don't need to pay for it.
Thanks for the quick reply.
Intel Utility describes it as 'Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Win 7(Zip). Not very enlightening.
The number I quoted in my original post was from the Antivirus software, which is trying to sell me something.
I seem to have got things working now. What I did was to google the driver number I had and it came up with a site where I could download the latest version, and that seems to have worked.
My concern, as always, is my knowing nothing about computers, am I going to make things worse? So far, so good (fingers crossed)
BTW, tried to download the official version again and it failed yet again, and the antivirus is still telling me this driver is out of date.
Call this one a score draw.
Thanks for your help
