Intel 4000 HD Graphics driver

I'm using Acer Aspire v3-571. How can I upgrade my Intel graphics HD 4000 driver to the newest?

Re: Intel 4000 HD Graphics driver

That link includes drivers for 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® HD Graphics 3000/2000, I was looking for drivers for Intel Graphics 4000 though. When I try to download latest drivers from Intel's pages I get this message: A customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer. The Intel Driver Update Utility is not able to update the driver. Installing a generic Intel driver instead of the customized computer manufacturer driver may cause technical issues. Contact yourcomputer manufacturer for the latest driver for your computer. I'd really like to get the latest driver which is said to improve performance by 10% etc.

The instalation worked you just have to choose carefuly the wright windows and bit,and then dowload the second or third driver, the first one is only for developers. if you could tell me your windows i could send you the exact url

I don't know about your V5 but on my V3 I cannot install any graphics drivers except the ones on Acers download site or by their updater utility that came on the laptop.  This has to do with modifications that they have in the autoswitching between the Intel integrated graphics and the NVIDIA graphics chip in my machine.  I will have to wait until Acer posts the update on their site.  You may have to wait also.

Mine is also a v3 and I managed to install the last drivers for nvidia and for intel. with nvidia was a bit harder i had to rewrite a file from the driver so it would stop telling me that i should only install drivers from the manufacturer site.but the intel driver did not give me any problem i installed 5 minutes ago
