Installing Latest(based from intel drivers) driver for my aspire e1-470 with intel hd graphics 4000

Hi! I have an aspire E1-470 with 64bit windows 8. I was wondering if it's possible to install the latest generic graphics driver for my intel hd graphics 4000. Tried to do it before but i couldn't because it prompts me about something like the driver for my graphics card is customized by acer and that i should contact it to get the lastest driver. The driver posted on the intel website is newer than the one i can get from acer. 

 

Thanks a bunch!
