Because my HP Paviolion dv6 was damaged externally, my friend switched the hard drive into his old HP Pavilion dv6 because they are virtually the same laptop with different appearances. Everything works fine except the graphics card driver--the laptop downloaded all the drivers to assist with the transfer automatically, but when I tried to run Minecraft, for example, it tells me I need to update my drivers. I have done so to no avail. I'm not sure what to do next--both HP and Windows update checks got me nowhere, and the prescribed driver from the HP website isn't working. I don't know why. Here is the information:

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4500 @ 2.30GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10
Processor Count: 2
RAM: 3002 Mb
Graphics Card: Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family, 6 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 283972 MB, Free - 145250 MB; D: Total - 20967 MB, Free - 3050 MB; E: Total - 99 MB, Free - 89 MB;
Motherboard: Hewlett-Packard, 1484
Antivirus: Microsoft Security Essentials, Updated and Enabled

The laptop is:
»HP G62-219WM Notebook PC

The video chipset may not support Minecraft. It's entirely possible the drivers are up to date. The error is generic and simply means the current drivers don't support the game properly. It doesn't necessarily mean that there are new drivers available. The game doesn't check or know.
