    Irking Graphics Driver Issue for Toshiba Laptop


    Hello there! New to the forums....

    I have an intriguing graphics driver issue that has come up since I did a fresh install of Windows 8 Pro with Media Center on my Toshiba C655-5225... It seems that Toshiba does not have an "updated" graphics driver for Windows 8. The default Microsoft driver has a few issues. The screen likes to flicker a lot and sometimes text becomes "garbled" and such. I have gone though Intel's site looking for the driver, but the download only updates the "SATA controller," not the graphics driver. I have attached two images displaying what the graphics card is and the driver versions. I hope someone is able to help me find an updated Intel driver so that these icky bugs can go away. It's the only true thing that is avoiding me from loving Windows 8 on this laptop. I can provide more information if it's needed.

    Ran everything through compatability mode, the setup and installer says that my system was unsupported with the Toshiba driver I downloaded off their site (was from August). I went ahead and tried to install the driver manually through device manager by uninstalling the device in the manager and install the drivers I downloaded myself but Windows states that they are outdated and won't work on Windows 8 (it doesn't recognize it, with or without compatibility mode). I'll just assume that it's because the download had out of date drivers.

    Just because Toshiba doesn't distribute them, doesn't mean that there are no win 8 compatible drivers.. Have you tried the graphics card manufacturer's site?

    The driver from Intel's site will not install under Windows 8 and will not install or run in Windows 7 compatibility mode. Device Manager continues to say that the "latest" drivers are already installed and just won't take the ones from Intel's site.
