Is this driver ok to use?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok I did uninstall the drivers that came with Sony for my video card and installed the video driver that came from Intel and so far everything is working right. I don't get any error messages so that's good. But I see that my version of driver is still looks OEM but the last 4 numbers is more updated than the older one.


My old driver version was this. 8.15.10.2182


My newer one is this. 8.15.10.2291


It seems like the generic Intel drivers detected it as OEM and just made some updates to my current one. Since the original version of the 8.15.10.2291 is 15.21.10.64.2291.


I noticed that all Sony drivers have the 8.15.10 part and the last 4 numbers is the actualy version. But it seems like that even I installed 15.21.10.64.2291 it says the current version of drivers I have is this 8.15.10.2291.

yeah your fine. Intel's website says that 8.15.10.2291 is just a different name for the 15.21.10.64.2291 driver. I'm not sure why there are two names but they are definitely the same driver so as long as your gpu is running smoothly then you should be great. And the last four digits should be updated since it is a newer driver.

I can only think that Intel knows my Intel HD drivers is not generic and it's from OEM Sony but if Intel can detect that my computer is OEM then why does Intel say this.


"Intel provides generic versions of drivers for general purposes. Your computer manufacturer may have altered the features, incorporated customizations, or made other changes to your driver. Intel recommends you contact your computer manufacturer for the latest system specific updates and technical support information."

But I guess if you guys say it's fine to use 8.15.10.2291 then I can just keep it that way since I don't really see any problems using them so far even it's not from Sony.

I guess all this means is that Sony is just slow on updating there drivers on there esupport page. Since if they always update there drivers they would of already had this updated version but they didn't so I that means I have to keep looking for updates for the video driver in Intel's website. I wonder why Sony says they always update there drivers to the latest so they said to check back often to see if there is any updates.
