I updated to Windows 8, but I can't find the drivers for my graphics card, as some programs are saying that I don't have accelerated OpenGL and the fix for this is updating my graphics card.

Graphics Card: NVIDIA ION (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM v1.2) (ASUStek Computer Inc) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8 Pro 64-bit Computer: ASUSTeK Computer INC. 1215N

Much appreciated if you left a link in your answer to the download page for the driver.

Hey Magicandre1981, I downloaded the package installer, but when I ran the installer, it did a system check for compatible hardware and eventually came up with this error: NVIDIA Installer cannot continue - This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware. – Anton8000 Jan 22 '13 at 18:27
use the device manager to install the driver:… – magicandre1981 Jan 23 '13 at 4:48
It claims that the driver is up to date, but still no accelerated OpenGL. Maybe this might help? I have a Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.0) I also have OpenGL 1.0 which isn't the latest version. – Anton8000 Jan 24 '13 at 22:06
this is an Intel GPU. Does your device support Nvidia Optimus? Also install the latest Intel drivers. – magicandre1981 Jan 25 '13 at 4:54
I have tried installing the latest drivers from Intel, but it comes up with the same error, where it doesn't detect the hardware. Is there a link to the correct Intel Driver? Also, I believe that my device does support Nvidia Optimus. – Anton8000 Jan 29 '13 at 17:56
