A505-S6005 Display Driver Update

The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD driver on the A505 S6005 is from October of last year (10/30/2009 to be exact - Driver Version: 8.15.10.1986). Unfourtanetly you cannot use driver updates from Intel because if you try it throws the error, "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer."

 

Is there anywhere else where we can get these driver updates from? I have a couple issues with my mouse cursor freezing that may or may not be linked to the display card. For example when using the Windows 7 taskbar thumbnail preview, or right clicking on a pinned Windows Explorer and mousing over the Frequent folders.

 

Thanks in advance.

To use the Intel supplied drivers you need to download the drivers in .ZIP form and install them manually.

When you say manually do you mean by unzipping the folder and running the Setup.exe found in there? I did that and it was giving the same error. Or do you mean manually by going into device manager and clicking on Update Driver Software and browsing to the folder...or something entirely different?

Nope.  You need to go into Device Manager and undate the driver that way.  See the following for more information on doing this.

It is June and still no 64 bit drivers from Toshiba. They have 32 bit drivers for this model. Ugh.
