    Upgraded to W 8.1, can't find a compatible graphics driver

    Hi, thanks for reading!

    I have a Dell Studio 1555. It has a Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1). I've checked Dell's, Intels, and Microsoft sites for compatible drivers, to no avail. When I spoke to an Intel representative, they suggested I simply stuck with Windows 7. Is that my only option? I much prefer Windows 8. Thanks!

    ... I simply want to play Minecraft.

    GearsofPinata welcome to the Eight Forums.

    Unfortunately you won't find a driver from Dell (or anywhere for that matter) if Intel didn't make one.

    No idea if the last Windows 7 driver will install or not,

    Use this: - 64-bit and for 32-bit Remove any drivers that you have previously installed ant install this. Hope this works for you!
