Can anyone help me update my laptops drivers I tried to get help from some tech support guy but i would have to pay $99 for him to help so i was wondering if someone would be able to help me update my laptops drivers. I have tried downloading multiple drivers but each time it says they are incompatible. I went on the intel website to see if it could help update it but as it finished scanning my laptop it said " A customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer. The Intel Driver Update Utility is not able to update the driver. Installing a generic Intel driver instead of the customized computer manufacturer driver may cause technical issues. Contact your computer manufacturer for the latest driver for your computer." The type of driver im trying to download is one good for video games

Have you checked at the computer manufacturer's website? If you need help doing that then

post the make and model of the computer.

Have you made any hardware changes to the computer especially the graphics card?

As BC Advisor stated, check the manufacturer of the card and look up their website. Donot rely on the 'update drivers' button in the proporties window as it gives you a poor indication if your driver is actually up to date

That's not a gaming machine. No where near. Good for watching HD videos and some casual gaming.

No driver update/ upgrade would make it one.

Why do you want to update your graphics card drivers?
