Hello everyone, long time no see!

 

I have a Windows Xp Professional question concerning onboard graphics through intel, their Intel Mobile Graphics {945GMA series in fact} Are there any new updates for this through Windows XP Pro, or will a drivers update search yield me nothing ?

 

I am going to be adding another gigabyte of ram to this laptop in the coming days and I want to try to update some other items as well if I am able.

 

Thanks in advance

Drivers...need "updating" only when the update provides additional functionality (which doesn't happen often these days).

 

Drivers...need replacing (uninstall, then reinstall) when they become damaged and cause functionality problems.

 

The general opinion is...you should never use Windows Updates...to get drivers.  The manufacturer of the system (if an OEM) is responsible for providing drivers and the drivers provided by Windows Update have tended to unnecessarily not be the correcct drivers for those trying to use Windows Update for drivers.

So go through Intel directly for the model number and see if they have the device drivers ? Or should I just uninstall then reinstall my current drivers ?

The laptop's support site when checking for updates, if needed.
