    Intel HD 530 Driver Crash in Windows 7 64-bit




      I am new to forum. I tried looking for the similar issue/solution. But I dint find any. So I am posting it myself.


      I think this is a graphics driver issue. Because once I uninstall the Intel Graphics Driver, the default Windows VGA driver is not causing any issue. Any help is appreciated. BTW, the system is custom-made for my requirements.


      I tried these things before posting this:

      Installed latest Intel Graphics Driver, latest beta driver, latest Graphics Driver from motherboard website. The error persists!
