(this is a laptop)
I completely screwed over my computer by rolling back my intel hd graphics card drivers by accident. if i use windows' reset options to completely wipe my computer, will it reinstall drivers properly during the reinstallation?
In this picture these are the two display adapters that I have.
Originally, the bottom one used to say "Intel HD Graphics", but i went into its properties and clicked Roll back. Upon restarting it changed to "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" as seen above.
NOTE: The intel driver is already gone since i rolled it back to Microsoft Basic Display Adapter. I'm trying to get it back.
The intel website says you need to identify your graphics controller first. Before i rolled it back, mine was intel hd graphics, but now I removed it and so it wouldn't even work. I have an i7-640m cpu. I could only find graphics media acclerators for legacy cpus, and when i installed it an error popped up saying i did not meet requirements. the legacy CPU page did not list anything compatible with windows 10. I just want to get my old driver back, called Intel HD Graphics without a version number at the end.
edit: I ran windows update and it says my computer is up to date.
I cannot run games with the basic adapter.
I tried updating stuff and uninstalled some updates then reinstalled them and restarted the computer a bunch of times and sometimes the updates took too long so i held down the power button. The computer is now agonizingly slow, with no more smooth movements. Everything is laggy.
Edit: Everything is fixed. I didn't look closely enough and all I had to do was go to the HP page for my specific laptop.
