Re: [WIN7] Do I need these updates?
Intel drivers seem generally safe, but I'd avoid giving a blanket recommendation that says the vendor drivers are always better.
Hardware companies, particularly in the wow-gosh end of the video card market, are fond of rushing out not-well-debugged drivers. You could be better off being a little behind the curve. In such a case, Windows Update is sometimes the wiser choice.
Lenovo Download and Drivers page
I just went to the Lenovo drivers page and the only thing I can find is the Intel Onboard Graphics driver (which is under Video). I can't find the other things MS is showing in the categories on the Lenovo page. Also, a while ago I clicked on "more info" from the Windows Update page, and I didn't get any information except that it was for developers and it wanted me to join something, I think.
Would you know if I can install the Direct Writer API download referenced above?
