    Intel HD Graphics 5600, Apps made with Qt not responding




      I have a problem with my laptop (Intel Core i7-5700HQ with Intel HD Graphics 5600) in which if I use application that use Qt, the application's GUI will stop working after several seconds.

      1. VirtualBox
        • I use VirtualBox 5.0.20
        • As you can see in the attachment, after I move my cursor over the menu several seconds the menu will be not displayed sometimes and the blue mark also not there if I hover my cursor over specific menu.
        • If I close VirtualBox and restart again it will not work as the previous process is still not responding in task manager.
        • I've asked support from VirtualBox community and they said that it was Qt issues because VirtualBox use Qt for the GUI and they also said there is a problem with my current graphics driver to communicate with apps that use Qt
        • I've tried to replicate issue in another application that use Qt in which I use Wireshark in this case
      2. Wireshark
        • I use Wireshark 2.0.3 that use Qt 5.3.2
        • As you can see in the attachment, this one is even worse than VirtualBox. After several seconds hovering my cursor accross menu the application is not responding at all and I need to force close via Task Manager


      I've tried to replicate issue with my other laptop which has intel HD Graphics 5500 both applications work fine, so my conclusion is something wrong with Intel HD Graphics 5600 itself.

      I've tried all driver versions Intel HD Graphics 5600 but it doesn't help at all. Now I use latest beta driver (4444) and the problems still there.


      So basically I can't use both applications above at all because it will stop responding after several seconds and it's bothering me because I need both applications for my work.


      If you need more data let me know.

      1. Open VB
      2. Try to click one of the menu and move to other menu with menu window open
      3. Try to move from one to another until problem occurs
