Hello, and thanks in advance.
So after a while of having this laptop, I started playing games on it. I know I'll never have it perfect for the game in mind but while tweaking things here and there, I did notice that my Intel graphics card seems to only be called Intel(R) HD Graphics, whereas if I Google drivers and such, it always has numbers or different text. Is this normal?
Now when I click on Properties from the Adapter Type area of the Generic PnP Monitor and Intel(R) HD Graphics Properties, I find the last driver date being 8/4/2015. Are there really no updates since then? I can't seem to find any info on it and the Intel(R) Driver Update Utility gives me an option to download an update but it gives me some message for the driver not being validated for my computer.
My current version is 10.18.15.4248. However, the Update Utility says my installed version is x.x.x.4539 and it wants to install x.x.x.4624 (126.96.36.19924, which now looking at it makes my driver feel horribly outdated), but gives me the message before about validation.
Another thing is that another download is in the Utility's list. Intel HD Graphics Production Driver for Windows 10 64-bit (N-Series). I tried that too, even though it wasn't checked originally and I got the same message.
Summarized: I feel like I don't have the best driver I'm meant to for my graphics card and the Utility seems more confused than I am. I'm looking for a possible way to upgrade my driver if it can be, at most. And at the very least, I'm looking for a reassurance that this is the most I can pull off on this laptop.
Thanks for your time.

Funny enough, the driver meant for this computer won't download because I don't meet the requirements. The second one simply didn't work. Ah well. I'm content with knowing that I have the best possible driver I can. Long as I have all I can have.
