I'm looking for the correct Windows 8 64-bit video driver for a Lenovo T400 (model # 6473-E1U) laptop.

The current default Windows 8 driver isn't completely compatible since sometimes certain portions of the screen become blurry.

I have tried loading some of the Lenovo Windows 7 64-bit video drivers but these haven't worked either.

Furthermore I have gone to the driver identifier website, http://www.driveridentifier.com/scan/download.php?item_id=97540108&scanid=69077F3874784564BA57FBC1F13D397E&hardware_id=PCI%5CVEN_8086%26DEV_2A42%26SUBSYS_20E417AA but all of the drivers that it lists are 32-bit drivers which are unable to install on my 64-bit Windows 8 Lenovo T400 OS.

Here are the Hardware Ids that Windows 8 lists for this video adapter (also see the screenshot):

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2A42&SUBSYS_20E417AA&REV_07
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2A42&SUBSYS_20E417AA
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2A42&CC_030000
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2A42&CC_0300

I need to download and install the correct video driver for my Lenovo T400 laptop (model # 6473-E1U) which is running Windows 8 Professional.

Please post the exact URL addresses of where I can download the right driver from.

We are always glad to help, but I have noticed that you have authored a few Windows 8 questions recently and included them within the Windows 7 Topic Area.  Perhaps it would be more appropriate to exclude the Windows 7 zone and use either the topic area titled Microsoft Operating Systems or the one named Microsoft Windows Operating Systems, instead.

I have asked the moderators to move this question into the correct zones.
