    Black Screen after upgrading to G45/G43 Chipset driver 8.15.10.2182

      Hi,

       

      I searched for this problem but only came up w/ an issue against the 8.15.10.2086 driver that has supposedly been resolved in 2182.  I am having the same symptoms described in the 2086 thread but with the 2182 version.

       

      My current driver version is 8.15.10.1749.  I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on a Dell Studio desktop.  Microsoft update pushed the latest display adapter driver to my PC and from that point on, I would get a black screen when the logon screen displays.  I logged into safe mode to roll back the driver.  I then went to Intel's driver detector site and downloaded 2182 directly.  The screen snapped to a huge resolution then to black.  I rebooted and got the same black screen problem.

       

      I am trying to upgrade the driver b/c I am attempting to play Diablo II Lord of Destruction (admittedly an old game) and it starts fine and plays for a while, then crashes out.  Oftentimes, the graphics get corrupted and window posts an error saying the driver stopped working but recovered.

       

      Here is my information from the Graphics and Media Control Panel:
