Introduction: (you may skip this and go straight to content)
There are no drivers yet released by Intel and most feedback said the In-box drivers does not give the optimum performance such as problems for minecraft games. There are people who manage to install it with different method which I will describe here.

This post is for tutorial purpose, do it at your own risk and it is your responsibility to deal with any T&C and license of the respective owners.

Intel Released Drivers for Windows 8 and 8.1 for :
2nd Generation Intel® HD Graphics 3000/2000: Download Link


A. Driver Version

C. Install Using MOD the Driver

A. Driver Version.

Fist of all, we will use previous driver version (windows 7 drivers) to Install. Here is the driver version list base on successful installation reported by users.

You can Google for the download link, I only provide download link for certain manufacture. you can use the driver from other manufacture but this will against TOS/License of the respective owners.

32-bit Version
1. Version Dell | Foxconn | Acer |

64-bit Version
1.  Version Zotac | Intel
2. Version Foxconn |

You can also test with your original windows 7 graphic driver or download the version available on the Intel download center.

Latest windows 7 driver from Intel.
Download Link -Intel Mobile 4 series
Download Link - Intel HD Graphics

In-Box Drivers : Refer to driver provided along windows 8 installation. Windows will determine the best driver for your graphic and install them.  If you call tech center and they say you just need to use in-box drivers mean they are referring to "just use the driver which already installed and no need to install other driver".

Install Using Compatibility Mode

1. Uninstall Current driver on the device manager by right click and select unistall. To open device manager press windows key + R and type devmgmt.msc and then press enter.

2. Then extract the drivers files and look for setup.exe file.

Which Driver should I use?
 My recommendation base on priority:

a. Latest windows 7 driver from Intel.
Download Link -Intel Mobile 4 series
Download Link - Intel HD Graphics

b. Your original windows 7 drivers. (Download your laptop from manufacture site.)

c. Test with driver version i listed on driver version.

d. Try to use different version you can get.

3. Right click and select properties - compatibility - run this program in compatibility mode for "windows 7" , the tick run this program as administrator. Apply then OK.

4. After that run the setup to install and do not reboot yet, first change windows updates setting to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them". Reboot after Installation.

If failed, you may try with diffent version or move on by installing the mod driver below.

Install Using MOD Driver

1. Install Certificate Installer Mirror(DropBox)
