Hello,

I would like to get a clarification on the Graphics driver version numbering of Intel and Nvidia.

Intel uses the following schema to define the driver versions.

7. 14. 10. 1322
VISTA DirectX IntelBuild number

For example, this driver works with Windows Vista* operating system and supports Microsoft DirectX* 9. The last four numbers represent the Intel build number.

Intel Identifier OS Version
8 Windows 7*
7 Windows Vista*
6 Windows* 2000 and
Windows* XP
5 Windows 2000 only
4 Windows*95/98/98SE
/Me or Windows NT* 4.0
Intel Identifier DirectX* Version
15 10.x
14 9.x
13 8.x
12 7.x
11 6.x

7 Denotes VISTA Operating System
14 Denotes DirectX 9.x
1322 Denotes Intel Build Number

What is 10, it denotes for ?

NVIDIA Graphic Drivers

NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS
Driver : 7.15.11.6369

7 Denotes VISTA Operating System
15 Denotes DirectX 10.x
6369 Denotes Intel Build Number

Can anyone help me to find out the significance of digit 10 in Intel and 11 in Nvidia driver version?

just un-install all drivers from nVidia using clean sweep.
one the machine reboots just let windows installer decide and install the drivers for you, do not install drivers form disk.
windows installer will install the latest verified driver released..
that's really all you need to know..

I suggest you contact Intel & Nvidia as they are the ones privy to that sort of information.
