I have Lenovo G580 running 8.1 with intel HD4000 and Nvidia Geforce 610 & Intel CoreI5 3210 2.5GHZ 3rd generation the problem occurs after few days from updating the Intel video card which is simply i can't change the screen brightness whether using the [function+uparrow ] or control panel, it works well when i roll back the driver so am I stuck with the old driver which i can't update or what?
My netbook(Samsung NC110 with 1024*600 Screen Resolution and Intel GMA 3150) is running Windows 8.1 x64 now. I want to use all features of Windows 8, so i want to set Custom resoltion like 1366*768. I was trying to change some keys in the regedit, but the picture was very bad, cause my screen is 16:9, and 1024*768 or 1152*864 resolutions is 4:3. I want to get some utility to set Custom Resolutions, that bigger that real resolution of my display.
Sometime ago my old Nvidia GTX560 Ti died. I don't have the ability to replace the card at the moment so I've been using my onboard Intel HD 4600. I must say I'm pretty impressed by what that little GPU on die can do.
Currently I'm on driver 10.18.10.3621 Let's call it the New driver. What happens basically is that many games (specifically OpenGL and possibly?? older DX games) have rather severe graphics corruption. Basically textures flicker wildly, sometimes polygons draw at wild angles. It makes me think of some sort of memory corruption.
Also, the FPS can vary wildy, games stutter, etc. Newer games (Dx9+) do not seem to have this issue.
Here is a demo video. Note that it is *far* worse IRL, the recording software is only picking up a small amount of the issues. Games are almost unplayable. [URL] .....
Here is the intel information center details.
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 Report Date: Monday, July 28, 2014 Report Time [hh:mm:ss]: 10:53:24 PM Driver Version: 10.18.10.3621 Default Language: English (Australia) Installed DirectX* Version: 11.0
I tried to downgrade to the previous version to see if it would work. Version 188.8.131.5296. Let's call it the Old driver. Surprisingly enough, all of those issues disappeared. Games ran perfectly smooth with no artifacting. However sometimes on occasion the graphics driver itself hard crashes. The screen flickers of rainbow colors very rapidly... I've never seen anything even remotely like it. It seems like through google that this "Rainbow screen of death" is an issue of a rather fatal Intel GPU crash. That would seem likely since it has only ever appeared on THIS driver version with THIS GPU.
So, recap. The new driver is completely stable, but many games, specifically and OpenGL PERHAPS DirectX games suffer from really strange artifacting of sorts. The old driver is completely fine and stable, but crashes the system.
So I'm forced to use the new driver and really limit what I can play. I'm not sure what direction to go next. I realise I have no left much info but I'm unsure as to what information is required. I do not believe there is any hardware issue otherwise I'd of seen other indications. It is certainly not a heat issue as I have rather effective cooling and I'm in the middle of a rather cold winter. Besides I've monitored the temps.
To my own stupidity I decided to update my computer from Windows 8 to 8.1, every thing would be fine if not for the fact that my screen is now stuck as a letterbox.
The native for my monitor is 1920-1080 and was what I was running at pre-update, after restarting, my screen is confined to a letterbox setting. Changing the resolution does nothing, when looking for a solution I came across a post from this thread:
8.1 upgrade - generic video driver problem
I've got the same graphics card as the OP and have found the same events. My question is what did he mean when he said
"I deleted the AMD leaf-item (Control Panel, Display adapters, AMD Radeon HD 7650D)and rebooted the system." in post 3.
Did he go ahead and un-install it? Clarification on what he exactly done would be great.
btw, if I did go ahead and un-install my graphics card like the OP originally suggested, would it reinstall on restart?
My computer is hp envy dv6 7280sf notebook with 2 GPUs intel graphics HD 4000 and Nvidia Gefoce 630 M running windows 8 64x.
After making an free upgrade online for windows 8.1 which run successfully, both gpus were ok...
But after receiving a windows update with new drivers for intel graphics 4000 gpu , after install and restart , the computer freezes on blank black screen at windows startup with no mouse or anything only backlight.
So safemode was succeful but i figured that the update for windos update was the cause and graphics drivers were installed so i removed the drivers for intel graphics and itried to reboot the computer so the restart was succeful but the intel graphics card was unistalled and no drivers were automatically installed so i tried to download and install the drivers from hp and intel website for windows 8.1 however the install fails.
Automatic install from device manager failed both online and from computer and even from manual driver selection.
So therefore the install failed in safe mode , and the high def audio device ( on screen audio possibly) failed and the device was not recongnized (no drivers installed) so i'm stuck without anydrivers for the integrated gpu and the games are no longer able to run normally even if the nvidia card is on.
I tried downloading an installing Windows 8 drives but it failed to install also , for instance any new install of drovers seems to fail for me even for external usb hard drive.
I've noticed that whenever I unplug my charger my brightness dims down to a point where I know its on, but I can't use it. Usually I have to put my computer to sleep and turn it back on to get it to fix. Also, the brightness wont adjust in anyway when its on. I've tried the function keys and the setting in the side bar. I have a toshiba laptop running windows 8.1 . I also have recently completely wiped it thinking it was a virus of some sorta with no change.
I have a Lenovo Flex 14 - win 8.1 (64 bit).I have restored my pc and after the recovery the option to adjust the display brightness has "disappeared". The option is no longer in place in the charms bar or in Power Option and the adjustment keys (F11 and F12) are not working either.
I have an Acer Aspire 8930G with Windows 8.1 x64 and Windows 7 x86 as a dual-boot. I use 8.1 as my everyday OS and only boot into 7 to play older games that only work with a 32-bit OS.
Ever since I installed Windows 8, I have not been able to adjust the brightness of my screen. Note that this problem started since I installed 8, not 8.1, and before I put on the copy of 7 as a dual-boot. When I use Fn+left/right (the brightness keys on my PC), the brightness slider appears on-screen and goes up and down, but the brightness of the panel doesn't actually change. Using the Charm doesn't work either, nor does adjusting it through the Control Panel.
I have tried fiddling with my Power Options in the Control Panel and disabling adaptive brightness. I have tried several different driver versions for my GPU, a GeForce 9600M GT. None of this has worked.
In Windows 7, however, the brightness controls work fine. If I want to adjust my brightness for 8.1, I have to boot into 7, change the brightness there, and then boot back into 8.1, where it will keep whatever brightness setting I was using in 7.
Is there some messed-up thing in the Registry? Is my GPU's firmware maybe just not compatible with Windows 8? I took a look at TechPowerUp's repository of GPU BIOSes, but it appears I already have the most recent one.
When I installed the Video card, I either disabled, or uninstalled, the Intel HD 3000 Video adapter. I am now having issues with the card and wanted to try using the Intel graphics, before replacing the card, but they are no where to be found. "Scan for hardware changes" produces nothing.
They do not show up under display adapters in Device Manager, so I can't enable/install them. I d/l the last 2 versions of drivers form Intel, neither will install -

2- hoe can i know that my geraphic support open GL and 3d?
I see that many Cedar Trail devices (Intel Atom N2600 with Intel GMA 3600/Power SGX545) run Windows 8 quite well due to its dual core architecture. However, when using the Intel's currently supplied GMA 3600 driver (dated 1/2012), all Windows 8 Metro apps crash when attempting to run them. I cold use Microsoft's default display driver, but with that one, I'm limited to 1024 x 768 and sleep won't work.
So far, there is no word from Intel on whether new GMA 3600 drivers for Windows 8 will emerge. Asus thinks that new drivers will never be possible. However, it appears that some Atom Z2760 devices like Acer's W510 may be powered by GMA 3600 / SGX545 after all. Of note, Samsung's Z2760-powered Series 5 tablet has some Intel GMA drivers available for Windows 8 via this link.
I figured I'd try them on a Fujitsu Q552, which has GMA 3600. The error message I get with Windows 8 Pro RTM is "this driver does not support this version of Windows" which seems weird given that I'm running Windows 8 Pro.
I'm not sure if the INF can be modified to support Cedar Trail devices, particularly since the GPU appears to be the same, albeit at a different clock speed (just like GMA500 vs. GMA600). I remember seeing this about some modded drivers that XDleader555 made for GMA500/600 -- interestingly, some versions of EMGD drivers (like 1.10) seem to work well with GMA500 devices like Fujitsu's UH900 with Windows 8, in my experience.

I just wanted to know if it was possible to use Intel Mobile 4 Series Express Chipset drivers with Windows 8. I've read that you could use the drivers for Windows 7 in Windows 8, but I haven't really proven that to be true.
I keep getting this error:
but I really don't get why I'm getting that message - it's giving me this message like I'm trying to run the software on a computer from the '90s. It really doesn't make sense to me since just about all other software can run on newer operating systems.
All I want to know is if it's possible to install these drivers on my computer, and if not, if there's a patch or a substitute.
Recently I turned on my computer (Acer Aspire V5 122-P) and went to change the brightness. And using the FN keys and changing the brightness returns the same value rather than changing it. The other FN keys such as Volume +/- and turning adapters on and off still work. It is just the brightness keys. I would like a fix as I need long battery life and this is causing excessive battery drain. (I have tried turning it off and on again to no avail)...
My laptop (Acer Aspire E1-571) refuses to install the Intel VGA driver. I've tried via the Acer Live Updater and manually through the Acer and Intel website. I am assuming this is the cause of the fake dead pixels on my screen, the terrible quality of videos and the reason the screen freezes when playing any video game.
My laptop has Mobile Intel R 4 Series Express Chipset Family, and now I am using Windows 8. Problem is I can't install Intel graphics media accelerator driver that was been used when I was using Windows 7. Problem says "this computer does not need the minimum requirement of installing software."
I have asus n550ja laptop with 8gb memory, the shared system memory is 1760mb, I usually don't play any games, there is no reason I can use that much graphic card memory. But because of the high shared memory, I cannot use all possible memory for virtual machine or ramdisk, when I use those, they can only maximum use about 6.5gb memory and cannot go higher. So I wonder is there a way I can reduce the intel graphic card shared system memory?
I have been getting these errors in Event Viewer intermittently, every 1-2 weeks since upgrading to Windows 8.1 . I have an HP m6-1158 (specifications linked).
I had to get rid of my last computer because of constant BSODs because I changed out the graphics drivers so often. That's why I'm reluctant to do it again. A friend advised me to do it only if there's a problem, otherwise leave them alone. If I do update them, he said, it's best to go through the computer manufacturer. Last time when my computer failed, I installed drivers from AMD, so I have been avoiding theirs and Intel's websites.
With this system, that I've had since May of last year, I haven't been able to update the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 with this Windows 8 driver or this Windows 8.1 driver. Each time I tried, I got an error that my computer does not meet the necessary specifications. Therefore I left it alone and the only driver installs recorded in Device Manager for it are from when I bought the system in May 2013 and the 8.1 update in October.
The Radeon driver is from 2012 and came with my computer. According to Device Manager, it reconfigured or reinstalled for 8.1 but the driver version has not changed. I have not had any major issues with gaming performance. I tested Far Cry 3, which runs great.
I recently installed the game Papers. After constant crashes on startup, I contacted support, who advised me to change the AMD switchable graphics options for the game to High Performance. After that, it runs fine. That leads me to think that there is an issue with the Intel driver.
Today I tried to install the new BETA driver for my Intel HD 4600 Integrated Graphics unit, however, regardless of installation through through my driver with the extracted driver-ware, or through an .exe nothing seems to work.
I either get the "system does not reach minimum requirements.", or "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer"
I Know that Windows 8 doesn't support this program. Before i have Windows 8 but i had to format. Now i dont' find how to install it. How can i install Graphics Media Accelerator of Mobile Intel R Series Express Chipset Family?
I just purchased a acer V7-482PG-6662 ( Acer | Aspire V7 | V7-482PG-6662 | Overview ) and it comes with a 1080p display but the issue is that it wont go above 1366 x 768. This is right out of the box, i cant change to a higher resolution and all the drivers have been updated.
The Nvidia card works fine as it kicks in during gaming but even in games I cannot select a higher resoloution than 1366 x 768.
I even did a fresh install of windows 8 and windows 7 same issue. Device manager indicates "generic pnp display" under the monitor heading.
Others who have bought the laptop have not experienced this issue and their display is at 1080p.
EDIT: Tried a linux live usb and same issue, the resolution is only 1366 x 768, is this a hardware defect?
I am on my work computer, a DELL desktop with Windows 8.1, and I've been using a dual monitor setup for months, both with Windows 8 and 8.1. One monitor is connected via the VGA input, and the other is through a VGA to HDMI adapter. Again, they've been working flawlessly for months. It was a plug 'n play setup that took a minute and never had an issue.
I came in today and the second screen was blank. In the screen setup menu it recognized it and allowed me to adjust between extending, mirroring, etc. But after I unplugged it and plugged it back in, it no longer recognizes it. It simply cannot find a second monitor plugged in. Both screens work when plugged directly into the VGA port separately but not when plugged in the way they've worked for months.
I just purchased a new windows 8 PC. I was attempting to hook the computer up to my tv through hdmi (the pc has no VGA input) and when I went through the normal paces to put the display on my tv (display desktop only on 2), the signal did not transfer and there is no display on either my tv or pc! how to revert the display back to my pc monitor without being able to see anything? Acer support was less than useful. It's an acer aspire z3-605 all-in-one pc.
I have a gateway NE56R41u. With that aside, today i played the sims 3 when it has a warning about my graphics card or whatever, so i went to my screen resolution to see if i can fix the problem. Unfortunately, the place where i can choose what my resolution is greyed out, so i cannot change a thing. Heres a picture .....
I installed windows 8 on my pc and it doesn't use the whole screen. There's a margin all the way around the screen. I have a 23" 1080p display and AMD Radeon 7450 graphics card.Also, OpenGL is not working at all, for anything.
I have an HP media center M7360N desktop with a Pentium D dual core, 4gb ram and a Ge Force 6200 SE card running 184.108.40.2064 drivers. I get this screen mess sometimes when on the web and on the desktop.
