Updating Intel graphics driver on Yoga 920

Intel updates their graphics driver recently which some nice fixes and some additional performance for some games/applications. When I tried to update the driver, the Intel tool gave a warning about installing the driver as the current driver in the laptop is configured by Lenovo. I am wondering if Lenovo will issue a new driver with their tuned-in parameters.. The current driver is based on old one and it is bad that we are missing those new enhancements. Thanks!

Re: Updating Intel graphics driver on Yoga 920

It is possible to install the Intel provided driver using Device Manager:

 

- Download the driver (choose the .zip file, not .exe file) from Intel Driver Download page for your GPU and extract to a folder (e.g. C:\Temp\VideoDriver)

- Open Device Manager, right click your Display Adapter and select Update Driver

- Click "Browse my computer for driver software"

- Click "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer"

- Click "Have Disk"

- Browse to the "Graphics" folder contained within the .zip file you extracted (e.g. C:\Temp\VideoDriver\Graphics) and select the .inf file

- Click Next and the updated driver will install.

Thanks a lot! Do you think that would it have any incompatibility issue with the Lenovo add-ons?

It's always possible you could experience issues, but I've been running manually installed drivers on my 910 without issue since I bought it (plus every other laptop I've owned for the last 10+ years, because laptop manufactures are always slow getting driver updates out, if they bother to release them at all).

I had the same problem with the driver installation complaining that it was not approved by Lenovo.

So I used the method you suggested,

I dowloaded and installed today the latest Intel UHD Graphics 620 for my Yoga920-13IKB as it was indicated by the Intel Drivers & Support Assistant.

Instead of using the win64_24.20.100.6025 .exe I used the zip file  win64_24.20.100.6025.zip downloaded from Intel support and unzipped it. 

Then I pointed the update from device manager to the folder Graphics\igdlh64.inf and the divers update completed succesfully,

The  driver is 24.20.100.6025 dated 04/25/2018.

After the installation I also see the Intel UHD Graphics Control Panel in the task bar.

Everything seems to work fine and the Intel Drivers & Support Assistant shows that all my Intel drivers are up to date.

I'm running the latest Windows 10 x64 Version 1803 Build 17134.1.

Thanks.
