In some conditions maybe you cannot install Intel graphics drivers even if your computer having Intel chips because your computer manufacturer wants you to install drivers from their website, not directly from Intel. But you can install drivers manually to solve this issue, here I have provided the solution.

First, you’ll need to download the graphics drivers from here Download the .zip version of the package instead of the .exe version from Intel’s website.

Extract the downloaded zip file to a folder on your system. You can do this just by right-clicking the zip file and selecting “Extract All”, or with any file extraction utility.

Now you have to turn on an option named file name extensions in windows explorer.

Now press windows key + r, type ‘devmgmt.msc’ in the search box.

In Device Manager expand the “Display adapters” section in the Device Manager, right-click the “Intel(R) HD Graphics” device, and select “Properties”.

Click the “Driver” tab in the properties window and click the “Update Driver” button.

Click “Browse my computer for driver software” here.

Click “Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer”.

Warning: Don’t click the “Browse” button near the top of the window.

Click the “Have Disk” button at the bottom right corner of the window.

Click the “Browse” button in the Install From Disk window.

Navigate to the folder where you extracted the driver and double-click the “Graphics” subfolder inside it. Now select ‘igcc_dch.inf’, select open.

Click “OK” and you’ll see the Intel driver you selected appear as the only option in the list of available drivers. Click the “Next” button to install it.

Windows will install the driver, once you get the successful message. I recommend restarting your PC to ensure the driver is completely installed.


Don’t worry you have to do this process only once for installing standard Intel Drivers, you can download new drivers from the Intel website and install them directly on top of your current drivers just by running the standard .exe installer.
