Please, let us know how it is possible to provide beta driver for games, when base functionality of graphic adapter is not working?
People who want to extend or duplicate monitors to DVI or HDMI are having a major flaws.
Does Intel have a test center? Is it possible to test your new driver with windows 7 on haswell boards with processors equipped Intel HD 4600?
I can not imagine company like that, and shameful situation like this.
So there are issues installing this beta driver on Surface Pros. When using the setup in the folder it states that this driver is not validated.
To avoid this I attempted to install through device manager and after guiding it to the folder, it attempts to install for a brief moment. Then it says that "windows has determined that driver is already up to date" so the beta driver has not installed using either of these methods.
Is there another way to install this driver?
@hass,,I just verified installation on a Surface Pro 2 with Windows 8.1. Here are the steps I used:
1. Login with administrator privileges
2. Open Control Panel
3. Open Device Manager
4. Click on "Display adapters"
5. Double click "Intel HD Graphics"
6. Click on the "Driver" tab
7. Click on "Update Driver" button
8. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software"
9. Click on "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
10. Click on "Have Disk" button
11. Click "Browse"
12. Navigate to the folder that you unzipped the Beta Intel HD Graphics driver to
13.Navigate to the Graphics sub-folder
14. Double click the igdlh64.inf or igdlh.inf file <-- depends on if you have 32 or 64 bit OS
16. Click "Next"
Driver should now be installing.
17. If successful, click "Close"
Last night i installed the beta driver -126.96.36.19964- on my HP Probook 6470b (comes with a Intel HD 4000 gfx) with Windows 8 Pro x64. After installing the beta driver, it suffered a black screen. I had to boot in safe mode and uninstall the driver.
I installed the beta driver manually through compmgmt. After uninstall, reboot and installing the latest stable 188.8.131.52.3412, it was all fine again.
Note also in Thief, with the latest stable driver 184.108.40.206.3412, the graphics on my HD 4000 suffer blurry textures (even when close to something, like a wall or a painting in the game) and also sometimes even black textures on surfaces. So i hope the new driver can solve these issues.
I've read on several fora that the blurry textures issue can be related to texture streaming of the Thief UT engine. Although, in Bioshock Infinite, i don't suffer from these issues (The 3d engine behind Bioshock Infinite & Thief is basically the same). I already tried different in-game settings like low textures or high textures settings, but it all doesn't make any difference. I can run Bioshock with med to high texture settings, so i suppose it should be possible with the new Thief.
i think i found the cause of the black screen maybe ...... this time after installing driver and getting black screen i went to safe mode and checked system 32 folder and found that every file copied by this new driver had a suffix of "v2_0" like "custommodeappv2_0" and even every dll file had that ...... Is it intentional for every file to have a version 2_0 suffix on their file names??
