Thinkpad T431s and Graphics Drivers


I'm currently using a Thinkpad T431s, which uses the Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics card. As it would appear, Lenovo comes up with their own drivers for this graphics card, but the last one they released was in March 2013. Meanwhile, Intel actually has one from May 2015. When I go to install the driver, there's a warning saying that it might not be compatible.

I've been trying to get Overwatch to work, which many people have said the Intel HD Graphics 4000 card is good enough for, as long as you have the latest drivers. However, using the Lenovo drivers from 2013, I'm just constantly crashing. My computer more than exceeds the minimum requirements otherwise. Does anyone know if it's safe to just go ahead with the latest drivers, or would it be better to just stick with the outdated Lenovo drivers?

Thanks in advance

You can install the latest drivers from After that check if everything works, most importantly changing brightness of the display.
