Intel HD 3000 Graphics Drivers for Windows 10 (32-bit and 64-bit)

Does Intel HD 3000 Support Windows 10?

Although Intel stated it is not compatible with Windows 10, Microsoft actually provide an In-Box drivers for this graphic card and normally after Windows 10 installation you will have Intel HD 3000 installed on device manager.

I already looked up on Intel website for Intel HD 3000 graphics drivers and nowhere they listed drivers for Windows 10. Only Windows Xp, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 drivers are available. So I did a little bit of research on other resources to find out is there any drivers released by Microsoft or Computer Manufacturer such as HP, MSI, Dell and so on.

Get the Drivers from Microsoft.


Microsoft do provide drivers for Intel HD 3000 via Windows Updates. In case Windows Update failed to detect and provide updates for your graphic, you can manually download it from Microsoft Update Catalog. 


You will see a lot of drivers listed, look at Windows 10 and you will find the first one shows 0 kb, meaning actually no driver to download. Ignore that and look at the second and the third one. Even the file name look the same, but the 2nd is for 32-bit and the third is for 64-bit.

Installation:

1. Download the drivers by pressing the download button.
2. Select the location to save the file.
3. The file is in the .cab format, and you need to extract it first using Winrar or 7zip.
4. Open device manager, right click on Standard VGA / or Intel HD graphic and select update driver.
5. Select 2nd option on the next windows.
6. Click browse and point to the extracted driver folder.
7. Click next and continue with on screen instruction until installation finish.
