Thank you for joining the Intel communities.
Intel's generic graphics drivers from the Intel Web site do not work on some computers that support Switchable Graphics. It depends on your computer's hardware configuration.
If you encounter problems using the generic driver, Intel recommends reinstalling the latest validated driver from your computer manufacturer for your system.
Thanks for the reply.
Actually I installed the driver update that was available through my Windows recommended updates. So if I'm not wrong, that should be a tailored update for my device and not a generic driver. Even more, that new version (10.18.14.4264) I installed is not even available on the Intel website. The latest driver I found on the website for my system is version (10.18.14.4251) which an older version. So that's another indicator that the version I installed through Windows updates is not a generic driver. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
BTW I even tried installing the version on the website as well but the same problem remained so I switched back to the version I got through the Windows updates.
