I have just updated some drivers as prompted by Windows Update and my graphics icon (in the system tray) now says "Can't find requested string".
If I right-click on the icon, all the options says the same message as above and choosing any of the top three gives the error message "Windows cannot find "Can't find requested string.". Make sure you type the name correctly ..."
Any idea how to fix this?

See link below:
You will notice in the notes that the only 'English' language supported is 'United States'!!!
The current suggestion from Intel support is to change regional settings to the US and then re-install the driver!
I am currently testing this now....

Changing all my settings to 'United States' rebooting, and then running the install again.
Once you are satisfied the driver is installed you can change the settings back to 'United Kingdom' and it will keep the text in the menus.

Changing the language settings to US works. What a relief ... I was beginning to curse Microsoft's windows update for giving me a dodgy update but now it looks like it is Intel's fault.

It is caused by the presence of a UK English resource file (igfxreng.lrc) in the system32 folder. This file is placed there by older versions of the Intel graphics driver (including the one still required to support the 845G). This file is incompatible with the newer drivers which no longer include UK English and so generates the "Can't find requested string" errors.
The solution is to simply delete this file before installing any of the new US English only drivers.
I would expect any UK English users who update their drivers from the old ones to the new ones will experience this error.

Thanks for investigating and finding the cause - it's much appreciated.
So can you jsut clarify for meâ ¦
I now have everything working as it should, by changing the locale, regional, language and keyboard settings to US, re-booting, re-installing, re-booting, changing everything back to UK and re-booting.
So can I just go ahead and delete the offending file (igfxreng.lrc) or do I need to re-install again?
Many thanks, John.
