Y510p Intel Driver update

2014-06-16, 17:18 PM

Hi,

 

My Y510p came with Intel 4600 Driver version 10.18.10.3277 and I would like to update to version 15.33.22.64.3621 but every time I try to install the newer driver version it gives me an error saying "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropirate driver from the computer manufactuer. Setup will exit."

 

Please help as I would like the newer driver version considereing the old one is many versions behind.

 

Thank you

Solved! See the solution

I have seen that before via windows update, just download the driver manually and install it and it should work fine.

Hi Varroa

 

Have you installed that version? I have tried installing and it does not work on my system either.

 

I believe it has something to do with the specific manufacturer. The latest Intel drivers dont install on my system also. I have tried the manual way.

Nope, haven't tried that version yet but as I said I have seen that error on previous version when trying to download through windows update. Just go to Intel and download directly and it should work.

Nope sorry. I have tried it from Intel website specifically for 4600 Win 8.1 64 bit and it does not work.

 

I am sure its a Lenovo specific version which is on Lenovo website. The latest version on Intel is not compatible with Y510P. If someone observes a different thing, please let us know.

The latest driver from the Intel website works fine on my Y510P.  Intel uses different numbering conventions to discourage users from updating their drivers on their laptops.  You need to uninstall the previous Lenovo drivers and then you need to manually search, download and install the drivers from the Intel site.

Do not use the Intel Driver Update Utility.  Search for the HD 4600 drivers to get the correct download.

Maybe I can help. I have a y510p with SLI (it's giving me no end of trouble...) and I noticed that if the ultrabay gpu is in the slot, windows can't find the intel HD gpu (maybe the bios is designed to turn it off when the ultrabay one is active?). As a consequence the Intel drivers don't update because they can't find the Intel HD!
So, if you have SLI, you could try to remove the ultrabay card and then update the intel driver. I hope that makes sense. I know it worked for me!

 

Edit: I also found this old thread on the same subject.

Thank you, unclewebb.

 

Uninstalling the Intel Driver before installing the new one worked!

 

I did notice the driver # remained the same, however the date released changed from sometime in August 2013 to 5/17/2014!!

The Intel VGA driver available from the Lenovo download site for Windows 8.1 is version 10.18.10.3277.

 

The one from Intel is version 10.18.10.3621

 

The first 3 sets of digits are the same but the last 4 digits are completely different.  If the Device Manager shows 10.18.10.3621 and the date shows 05/17/2014 then you have installed the most recent Intel driver correctly.

Yeah, I guess I was just too lazy to look both numbers and compare them. I looked in Device Manager and it says 05/17/2014 as the date. Thanks for all your help :smileyhappy:
