When checking for the name of the graphics adapter your computer uses, the Adapter String field is blank or empty on the Windows* Adapter tab.
The Adapter String field can be viewed using these steps:
- Right-click on the Windows desktop
- Click Properties (not Graphics Properties)
- Click Settings tab
- Click Advanced button
- Click Adapter tab
The Adapter String field is displayed in the Adapter Information section (see Figure 1).
This issue is resolved with the latest graphics driver.
To check whether a newer graphics driver is available for your graphics controller, use the Intel® Driver Update Utility. If the online utility displays a message that a customized graphics driver is detected, go to the Customized computer manufacturer graphics driver is detected page.
