  • Impossible to install the graphics driver from Intel on Satellite R630

    Hi, I downloaded the latest graphics driver from intel, but it won't install it? is there any solution for this?

    You must use the driver from Toshiba's European driver page.
    If you want to install the driver from the Intel page then you can do it at your own risk.
    This driver can be installed in Device Manager. There, you have to point to the files in the driver downloaded from Intel page by using the Advanced installation procedure and have to force the operating system select this driver.

    I know that this topic is explained before by NickyNoogle and Juan28, however I need more help.
    I can't install the latest driver for the graphics controller Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME (Toshiba A40 Satellite Pro). I downloaded the driver from the Intel Web site, but it has not installed and there is an error message "unable to install on this computer, please contact with the producer. I need to update the driver of version of lates version ( I know that I have to use the Toshiba drivers only. Could you be so kind and stick it to the post any link of this driver to download? I can't seem to find it on the Toshiba site anywhere.


    You can not install it because of the material. AFAIK designed Toshiba drivers are slightly modified to be limited and protect the graphics card. Driver Intel can get the map on the maximum limit and destroy it. This is the reason why you can not install it.

    Sorry but there is nothing to do. Try to check if a new Toshiba unit has the same graphics card and latest driver on Toshiba download page. Date of arrival:
    Sat Pro L10
    Satellite L10
    Satellite A50 and A80 (

    Good bye

    I have 64-bit Windows 8 and all these problems started when I tried to install the 8.1 update.  Whenever I try to go to the store to update to 8.1 I get the error message saying "we were unable to connect to the store. This could have happened due to a server problem or network connection has expired.  Please wait a few minutes and try again. "So I looked at this topic and you have tried all the tips of help from Microsoft, convenience stores, store transparent cache, etc. etc. etc. etc.. I can not connect to the store at all. Now I can't change users to a Microsoft account because it tells me that when I try that "we could not connect to the Microsoft services right now.  If this problem persists, look for 'referee' on the start screen. "I also performed this task without success.  Then I have a Windows update KB2862973 that fails to install and gives the error code 80073712.  I looked for solutions to this problem, and those who have tried unsuccessfully.  I really need someone to tell me how to fix all these issues, because I believe they should be linked.  It is a desktop pc Dell that is connected to the internet without any problem and is only about 1 year. I am tech savy, but need HELP!

    Thanks for the detailed response. This problem may be caused because corrupted Windows Update components.

    I suggest you to reset the Windows Update components and check if it helps.

    How to reset the Windows Update components?


    Important: Follow the steps in this section carefully. Serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Before you modify it, Save the registry restore problems.

    If the problem persists, then I suggest also that you can run the DISM commands using the following link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821
