    Tried to update driver for Intel HD Graphics 4600 but it seems no updates for my processor Intel HD 4700HQ 2.40 GHz.

    Guys, what else can be done?

    Does it refer to Intel HD graphics or nVidia graphics?

    Thank you.

    I would assume that it means the preferred graphics card and if I'm not mistaken that would be your nVidia graphics card but you can check it by using this guide to get it sorted out:

    Once you know which is the selected you have to either download the Intel Driver Update Utility or then the GeForce Experience:
