intel vga driver , Y700 Touch 15isk

2016-03-27, 16:27 PM

I just bought a Y700 Touch-15isk.

I downloaded and installed the intel driver update utiilty.

When scanning for driver updates , it states that the laptop has a custom vga driver and to visit the manufacturers site for a driver.The lenovo support page shows the same driver that shipped with this laptop.A 5 month old driver.

 Is there anything speacial about the oem driver?  Whats different about it compared to an unmoddified driver from intel?

 

  I like to keep my drivers up to date and would like to know if it's safe to instal a intel driver.

Thanks.

Solved! See the solution

Has anyone who has installed a non levono intel vga driver noticed any issues?

Guess what I am wondering about is , what controlls which GPU to use while gaming or everyday comp usage?

To update driver: Go to Device Manager. Right click and properties for the Intel 530, click on Update Driver button (driver tab). Follow the Wizard to let Windows download and update the new driver version automatically.

I've done that already. It say's I have the most up to date driver.Which is the original supplied driver from Lenovo dated Oct 2015. And the only one that lenovo lists.

 

Thats why I am asking what's different between Lenovo,s driver(which is old , and not even listed on intels driver support page)?

 

 

 

 

Thanks for the comment btw!

I have the same model and Windows updated the driver following the procedure described. (Not downloading the driver installer from Intel site)

 

Currently I have version 20.19.15.4390 reported by Windows as the most up to date.

 

Preloaded version gave me screen flickering opening Edge Browser.

So, just uninstall all your video drivers.  Then install the Intel 530 or HD 530, not sure which one.  Then, reboot if necessary.  Then install Nvidia's 960M driver. Reboot.  Then go to Device Manager, right click Intel display or whatever it says...something about video or display.  click 'check for driver update' or check for new driver.  That'll do it for you.  I wouldn't use any of Lenovo's drivers.  They are flakey and outdated at best.
