ThinkPad T430 - Can't get Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver to install WIN 7 Pro 64bit

2016-12-29, 9:41 AM



I've recently purchased a ThinkPad T430, and while trying to play a few of my games, I've noticed that under display drivers instead of listing "Intel HD Graphics 4000" it just lists "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter". Now, I know all about the simpler fixes with the Standard VGA problem. I've tried all of the "solutions" I could find. I've downloaded the Intel HD driver from the lenovo website under my specific laptop model(T430). I installed it, and everything seemed to work fine. I restarted my laptop, and went back to see that nothing had changed. It still listed only the Standard VGA adapter. I manually installed the Intel HD 4000 driver from the list in the Device Manager update window, and it showed that everything installed correctly. I restart the laptop, and boom. Nothing. Still lists the Standard VGA Adapter. I'm completely clueless as to what the problem may be. I've even restored my system, and uninstalled the VGA Adapter driver in hopes that it would install the correct driver after a nice restart. I've updated windows and everything. Nothing seems to work. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.



**A few notes: I'm running Windows 7 Professional - 64bit with a 256GB SanDisk SSD and 6GB of Ram. i5-3320M

Hi Danny,


Welcome to Lenovo Community!


As I understand that you are facing issue while installing Intel HD Graphics 4000

So try to update the drivers using Lenovo System update

It will update all the required drivers which need to be installed.

First completely uninstall the Intel Display driver completely and then run a System Update


I hope the above information helps.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Hi, I've tried to install the driver myself, but received "this computer does not meet minimum requirements for installing the software". Tried using LSB, but didn't detect anything. Please advice. Tq.
