[Request] Intel HD Graphics Driver Update for Yoga 720-15lkb

2019-08-05, 0:08 AM

Hi,

I use a Yoga 720-15lkb with Nvidia GPU and a 4K display.

Due to Nvidia Optimus making Intel HD graphics the sole controller of the display, Windows UI animations lag by an incredible amount at the 3840 x 2160 resolution.

There is talk about the Intel Graphics - Windows 10 DCH drivers solving a lot of problems but while trying to install it, it says it has not been validated for my computer. I checked the Lenovo website for drivers and there where no new updates.

 

Can we get an update from Lenovo for the Intel HD graphics 630?

The Windows UI lag is ruining the experience of the 3 day old laptop.

Solved! See the solution

You can install the latest Intel Graphics drivers provided by Intel, but you must first switch to the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter first to avoid the "not been validated" message you received earlier. 

 

Before starting, download the latest Intel DCH driver for your graphics adapter if needed, and disconnect any external monitors for the time being.

 

  • Right-click on Start and select Device Manager

  • Click on "Display Adapters" to expand, and then double-click on your Intel HD 620 Graphics adapter

  • Select the Driver tab -> "Update Driver" -> "Browse my computer for driver software" -> "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer"

  • Select “Microsoft Basic Display Adapter”

  • Click “Next” (note that you screen resolution will likely change) when it switches to the basic driver.

  • Close Device Manager

You should now be able to install the latest Intel DCH driver you downloaded earlier successfully.

 

 

Cheers,

Thanks!

 

This worked out for my Yoga 710-14IKB 80V4 as well. Only way to update Intel HD Graphics 620 from 23.x.x.x to 26.20.100.7584.
