Lenovo e420 Intel HD graphics driver needs update!

Lenovo needs to update the intel HD graphics 3000 driver to fix the brightness level bug

brightness level 0-1 are in the wrong place, 0-1 are equal to 10-11.     2-15 are normal.

People say its the lenovo custom intel graphics driver problem but the offical intel driver fixes the problem.

Hi Serge1410


The current version i have is Today i went onto the lenovo website to check for the latest drivers and i saw the latest intel hd graphics driver version then i went to  lenovo system update  to check for new drivers, it does not see the new graphics card version so i was confused. 


The reason i told you that i saw a new version on the intel site was because i checked it a few weeks ago, it was but the lenovo website only had a few weeks ago. so yeah, sorry for using old information.


So anyway,  since system update does not see the new version, i just downloaded the new driver off the lenovo website. installed it and now the brightness problem is fixed. very happy now


Thanks for the support!
