According to the Intel download website, the latest graphics driver for the GPU in an Intel Core i5-2400 is version, released on 6/5/2015.

However, I'd like to run an application which requires a newer version of the Intel driver and crashes on this version. The computer is running Windows 7 64-bit.

Is there a way to use a newer driver version with the i5-2400?

So far, any attempt resulted in the error message "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software". Does this mean that Intel does not support this chip anymore?

    There isn't a newer version of the Intel driver that supports your iGPU. You will have to upgrade your hardware (CPU/motherboard) to run the application in question or install a dGPU on your system – Ramhound Aug 22 '17 at 11:49

No, there's no way to get a new driver.

Intel dropped support for all GPU chipsets below the HD 4000 series with the release of Windows 10. The HD 4000 got a limited release at the time, everything else was abandoned.
You chipset is the Intel® HD Graphics 2000.

  • Are you suggesting that the HD 2000 is not even supported by Windows 10? Wow. – Venemo Aug 22 '17 at 12:01
  • Correct. Nothing below the HD 4000 has Win10 drivers. Some can limp along on the old drivers, until they hit the speed-bump you've just discovered. I work support for an online game & we had to make a special build for old Intel cards. – Tetsujin Aug 22 '17 at 12:03
  • I just think this is weird because their Linux driver has support for many more legacy devices, so it's surprising that they don't maintain it anymore for Windows. – Venemo Aug 22 '17 at 12:34
  • Weird or not - I'm afraid that's how it is. – Tetsujin Aug 22 '17 at 12:40
