    exacly the same here.

    My driver: 7.14.10.1244

    seemst to be the latest from the auto update.

    Anyone really managed to install the new Intel driver?

    just go to that Think Advantage auto update thing to see if your graphics card needs an update instead of manually doing it through my computer

    nope.
    Lenove hasn't yet released the new one. Until they do and validate the driver, you somehow need to bypass the Vista driver validation which should be possible on the 32-bit Version.

    Download the zip version, not the exe. Then you can unzip all the files and install the driver manually as per doctorcilantro's explanation.

    Zip or Exe doesn't make a difference. Exe just is a self-extractor. Manual installation only tells me "driver is up to date". Weird how you guys really did it. Any findings in performance increase afterwards? Has the color assignment improved?

    I did the unzip, then selected the search for drivers option/have disk. This worked fine.

    Same games don't work at all with 15.6 so you may want to hold off on installation. (i.e. Lord of the Rings Online does not work)

    I had the same problem and the steps below worked for me:

    On the update driver first diaglog, choose "Browse my computer for driver software". On the next one, pick "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer". Then, on the next dialog, click on the "Have Disk ..." and then browse to the inf file in the folder and choose the inf file. You should be good from there. I remember the inf file is in the graphics folder.

    Thanks consolas for the hint, this finally did it for me. You really have to select "have disk" and point to the .inf file in the graphics folder.
