Minimum Requirements Error Message when Installing Intel® Graphics Drivers


Error Messages



What are you seeing?

The following error message appears when you try to install Intel® Graphic Drivers:

This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software.

Why are you seeing it?

The error message appears for multiple reasons:

  • You have an external video card in your system, some motherboards disable the integrated graphic chipset of the processor when an external video card is attached; check if the Intel® graphic chipset is visible in device manager.
  • You have the wrong driver.
  • The driver and the OS version don't match. Example: you can't install a 64-bit driver on a 32-bit Operation System.
  • You don't have Intel® Graphics.
  • The Intel® Driver & Support Assistant can't update the driver. Installing a generic Intel® Graphics Driver instead of the customized computer manufacturer driver can cause technical issues.
