Whether you’re using the original PC manufacturer image or a clean install of Windows, chances are one or more of those drivers are out of date. Fortunately, Intel has now automated the process with a web-based scanner that inventories your current drivers and offers to install the most recent updates.
To start, open Internet Explorer and visit Intel Driver Update Utility page. Click the button labeled “Check your system for the latest updates.”
In IE, IDUU uses an ActiveX component called SysReqLab.cab (System Requirements Lab) from Husdawg, LLC. This’s a safe, well-known add-in. If this’s the first time you’ve used this tool, you’ll need to approve its installation, after which it scans your system and produces a display like this:
As you can see, this system needs an update to its chipset software and its wired network adapter. Click the plus sign to the left of the heading to see details for any of the components, including the version number of the currently installed driver and any available updates.
If your desktop PC has an Intel motherboard that uses an i3 or i5 CPU and you want audio delivered over the HDMI connection, you need to install Intel Management Engine Interface (MEI) driver. This driver is a separate download: Intel Management Engine Interface Driver for Intel 5 Series Chipset-Based Desktop Boards
The “5 series” to which this link refers is the first digit of the number in the chipset name, in this case DH55 or DH57.
