Intel supplies generic versions of its graphics drivers for general purposes, but the computer manufacturer can change the features, incorporate customizations, or make other changes to the graphics driver software or software packaging.To avoid any potential installation incompatibilities, Intel recommends that you first check with your computer manufacturer and use the driver software it provides.Once you have Driver Downloader, you can use the FREE SCAN facility to search for missing, corrupt or outdated Drivers.

You might need to update drivers in Windows when a new piece of hardware you've installed doesn't work automatically or maybe after upgrading to a new version of Windows.

Updating drivers is also a great troubleshooting step when the device is having some kind of problem or is generating an error, like a Device Manager error code.
