Not quite sure how to start this off. I've been having a recurring problem unrelated to this issue since about November of 2011, and it's recently just surfaced again. I decided to go do some updates to see if I could fix it once and for all, but I've run into a little problem.
I have an integrated graphics card, so I went to Intel's website to check if it needed updates. Intel's website says I have the most current version of the graphics driver, (188.8.131.525) last updated October 13, 2011, however, when I proceeded to Lenovo's website, they had a different version they recommended. (184.108.40.206.1872) with the release date of October 21, 2009. I'm unsure which is more current because I would assume that they're numerically released, (with 15 coming after 8), but the dates of release don't correlate to the version numbers.
Intel recommends that I use the drivers provided by Lenovo, but it's over two years older than the current release for the generic drivers they provide. That's why I'm asking for help on which to choose, and a short explanation of why would be dandy as well.
