      Answers (N/A if not applicable)


      Provide a detailed description of the issue AND 'does it fail every single time, or only sometimes?' If you can offer a % rate please do.

      When "Conservative Morphological Anti-Alising" is set to "Override Application Settings", display driver would crash when you run one of the Passmark’s PerformanceTest 8.0 3D DirectX 9 tests (either one of the two)

      Brand and Model of the system.

      Sony VAIO Tap 11

      Hybrid or switchable graphics system? ie Does it have AMD or NV graphics too?

      Make and model of any Displays that are used to see the issue (see note2 below).

      A screenshot to illustrate the issue is a huge plus. A video of the failure is even better! Attach to the post or provide the YouTube link.









      1. In 'Intel HD Graphics Control Panel', go to '3D' settings then set 'Conservative Morphological Anti-Aliasing' to 'Override Application Settings'
      2. Fire up PerformanceTest
      3. Select ‘Tests’ -> 3D Graphics -> DirectX 9 – Simple
      4. After a few seconds the system says ‘display driver stopped working and has recovered’
