Sorry if this area is not foe this but really stuck!
Looking to get a Sim, I now have a Laptop due to lack of space. The Laptop was middle range apx 2 years ago. Chip is intel I7 ,16 GB mem BUT inbuilt graphics.
Looking at the sims most say to download latest drivers, I went to the device manager, found graphics card and did update driver. It said I have the latest driver, dated 01,09,2015! on intels site it shows a driver for the intel 5500 grapics 11,08 2019.
This is a Lenovo Laptop does that mean it will not be using dedicated drivers,the one being used now is a intel driver.
I was going to download the latest driver and try to install that way BUT did not want to mess the laptop up.
Any info would be great please.

Put a Restore point in first then download the driver, that gives you the option of going back if the driver doesnt work ....

when it comes to drivers i always leave it well enough alone if everything is working. if you install something and it not working, then its time to update. No point in rocking the boat unless you have to

I would think you'd be OK. My 10 year old desk top runs the Phoenix simulator with no problems at all. It does have a dedicated graphic card but only 4gb of memory (though the graphics card had a gbyte though I've just swapped it for one with 2gbytes for reasons other than running a flight sim).
