Question Driver update fail

Hi ! i run win 8.1 on a laptop and windows update wants me to install the intel graphics driver but it fails everytime. Somehow, i suspect the latest bios update that i did.
Is it safe to reinstall the bios using the same file ? (downloaded previously).
Or do you why i have that problem ?
thx !

I don't think the BIOS update would be at fault.

Try downloading the drivers straight from Intel: Intel® Driver Update Utility

Windows update notification for mobile GFX has never had a satisfactory outcome for me... I pretty much stick with whatever the newest drivers on the laptop's support page are.

For GFX drivers.... Samsung support page for your laptop. All other drivers I go to the source.

I have a Samsung laptop and only grab drivers from Intel and NVIDIA directly (it features the Optimus tech). Never had any issues in 7, 8 and now 8.1.

Samsung's site hasn't had any updates since the laptop was released basically.
