Still no luck for me.
I have the newest BIOS and the newest drivers for both the intel and my NVidia cards.
Last time I installed it I didn't completely uninstall the intel ones until I got only windows basic driver. I did that and then had a lot of trouble getting it to recognize it as a intell again. Funny thing it looks like the NVidia driver is linked somehow to the intel driver, because it would not let update my NVidia driver again when the windows basic instead of intel driver was installed as it came up with error "Intel driver must be installed first"
Any way 2 days ago I got all the drivers reinstalled and up to date again. Yesterday I played a game ( Skyrim ) for about 3 hours no problems, but that wasn'tthe game that was crashing. I loaded the problem game, Fallout New Vegas, and it ran for about 1 1/2 hours, I was feeling condifdent and was about to post success when my system crashed again with another BSOD and the all too failure "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (igdkmd64.sys)".
I'm suffering from same problem too
HP ENVY 17-j029nr Quad Edition Notebook PC
Intel® CoreTM i7-4702MQ 4702MQ with Intel HD Graphics 4600
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M - with latest driver 331.65 WHQL
Always get this BSOD :
when i'm playing Crysis 3 game
I try to install old version of Definition (HD) Graphics Driver on HP site and it working fine till now , no BSOD
Please try it and tell me if you still facing BSOD
Same BSOD while playing Crysis 2 and Guild Wars 2 using last driver (10.18.10.3308) for Windows 8.1 with my laptop Asus N76VZ (GT650m).
Seemed resolved by using driver Version V18.104.22.16828 for Windows 8 from Asus website (http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=N76VZ&os=30).
You should really think of withdraw last driver or warn users!!!
Those who still have the igdkmd64.sys BSOD, could you please check in the Device Manager of your system and see if there are any conflicts there under video adapters?
Were you seeing any conflict after updating to win8.1?
Was your operating system updated or you performed a fresh win8.1 install?
This old driver solve my problem , try it
Hi, I'm having the same issue as the rest. In Device manager, under display adapter it states that both my AMD and Intel HD 4000 cards are working properly, with no conflict. My OS was updated to Win8.1 through the Windows store.
Whenever I play a game a memory shortage notice would always appear within a few minutes (and whenever I check Task Manager my memory is always nowhere near depleted). Then it would be sooner or later before the DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (igdkmd64.sys) BSOD appears.
I have downloaded and installed the latest AMD driver/software and BIOS for my system from my OEM as well as the HD 4000 driver from https://communities.intel.com/thread/45727 but games would still crash my system. The funny thing is, I once tried rolling back to the previous HD 4000 driver through Device Manager to v9 point something and the memory notices and BSODs seemed to stop. However, pesky Windows Update went and installed the same driver from https://communities.intel.com/thread/45727. My computer now goes back to crashing.
So now I think I'll return to using the previous driver for the HD 4000, like a few people here seem to be doing, and see if the memory shortages and crashes still appear. Until Intel releases another update that people feedback it stops the memory notices and BSODs. Cheers.
UPDATE: Version 22.214.171.12417 of the Intel HD 4000 driver indeed stops the memory notices and BSODs. SO now I'll have to take note of Windows Update and not let it update the driver.
I actually installed it from a disc I found that came with my computer, which had software (like Quickset; mine is a Dell) and drivers (like video drivers for HD 4000 and discrete card). I couldn't install from Device Manager too cus the 3316 driver was installed two times on my computer, once by Windows Update and once by me from the forum link in my previous post, since I didn't realise it was the exact same driver I had on my computer then. I only discovered it was when I tried rolling back the driver again to find the driver was rolled back to the exact same version. Maybe you could find a similar disc?
Seems to be reverting back to older driver is the way to go. I have tried installing older driver from the HP site link above but keep getting error message "this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software" anyone know way around it?
I have: i7, 2G Geforce GT 630m, 6GB ram...etc
Save yourselves the grief this is a prime example of an "Agile process" gone bad. I've installed, reinstalled, downgraded and upgraded. My issue is specific to running SimCity giving me a "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal" what this comes down to is two different companies suffering from bad internal processes.
EA for using an "AGILE process" to deploy its game and not meet the requirements needed to run it's game(s) What it comes down to is they need to present the issues to a product manager who then takes it to developers who put it in what they (WE) call backlogging from there they create a story and determine priority, from there it goes to a sprint and is worked on from 2 -4 weeks by it's developers and in the end it becomes a viable update and is pushed to the users. My issue needs to be taken up with EA. and bumped up in priority, but that will never happen.
As for Intel....if they have a hardware that's not compatible with windows 8.1 then it has to go through the same process as mentioned above that said these types are processes typically sit overseas in india, which now becomes a problem of accountability since in India no one takes ownership of the issue since no one wants to take the blame this will flounder for about 6 months before the issue is transferred back to a U.S. employee or UK employee or some country that if an employee takes a risk they wont be let go and have to live in absolute squabble. In the end this is a fine example of outsourcing gone awry even on a gaming level.
Good luck and don't bother uninstalling and reinstalling....its just a waiting game. Waiting for the risk taking employee to grab the issue and resolve it
