Because my notebook is some years old now I faced the problem that I could not launch Blender in Windows 8.1 with the integrated Intel Express 4 chipset. The integrated card has no real power in 3D but to start some learning in Blender I wished it would work …
Today I could search a bit and found this thread: http://www.eightforums.com/graphic-cards/37811-windows-8-1-mobile-intel-series-4-graphics-drivers-x64.html
What helped was this comment:
Newer driver https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18402 and for 32-bit https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18400. These drivers are the last ones that may be installed on Windows 8/8.1 without having to disable driver signature enforcement or installing custom certificates. Just run the Setup.exe and you are good to go!
Attached is a picture 🙂
