It shouldn't show that unless you have another graphics card installed that isn't using anything other than the standard VGA drivers.

I would recommend going to device manager, showing hidden devices, and removing any extra/greyed out display adapters. You may need to add the devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 environment variable.

If this doesn't work, you probably have remnants of some previous driver installed.

This is not correct.

Standard VGA Graphics Adapter is a legacy driver for hardware that hasn't had drivers installed yet, or is too old/obscure to have drivers of it's own.

Once you install the proper driver for such a device, it should show as the correct device, and not as Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.

If it's enabled, and you have not installed the Intel graphics drivers, that is almost certainly what it is.
