Need help with a ProBook 6550b

Hey there. This is my first time posting and I've been looking for drivers for this laptop however I have one problem that's annoying me a bit.

 

My laptop is old, but I upgraded to windows 10 and I've been trying to update the graphics drivers  with no success. 

 

The specs are: (collected from DxDiag)

I saw on the drivers page they had a better version for year 2013, as I've multiple times applied it, it has not changed anything.  What can I do?  

 

Thanks!

Re: Need help with a ProBook 6550b

I'm having problems installing a newer video driver version. 

 

Everytime I install one it says "Intel turbo boost technology has been successfully installed." 

 

I don't know if I'm missing something but the date of the driver version stays the same, when HP has a 2013 driver yet it won't apply it.
