    ok heres my problem, as stated in the title i am trying to update my laptops graphics drivers, and the only place i can find that has the latest drivers is the Intel website, however ive downloaded it and everytime after i try to install it i get an error message saying :
    The driver being installed is not valledated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate drviver from the computers manufacturer. Setup will now exit

    now as far as i can tell i am attempting to download the appropriate driver but it just gives me the same message. I am using a Dell Inspiron 6400 and the graphics driver is: Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express Chipset Family. my laptop runs on windows Vista Home basic 32bit and the download im using is speceficly for it.

    So anyone have any ideas? im completely stumped

    thanks allot

    Is that what you get from Dell's support site after you put your service code in?
