Please try with this method, installing the latest driver manually.
How to manually install an Intel® Graphics Driver
Intel® Beta Graphics Driver for Windows® 10
Please let me know if it helps you.
thank you very much for your time dealing with our problems.
Unfortunately, I have been unsuccessful in installing the recommended driver. As far as I understand, it requires Windows 10 as prerequisite.
Consequently, it has not been recognized by the "update driver" method accessible according to the how-to-sheet you provided.
Manually executing the setup of the 15.40 driver yields "system minimum requirements not met for this software" (translated by me from German message...)
We are operating on 8.1 pro on a board with haswell architecture (4th Gen) i7-4712 MQ
For that architecture, it seems that 15.36 is the latest usable branch and we already installed that.
If you have any further idea on what we could try to solve this, please advise.
If no other options are left, I am willing, for a test, to upgrade to Win10, just to see if that fixes the problems, but would then have to return the laptops to the supplier and exchange them for other models, since we can't upgrade company systems to Win-10 now.
Thanks in advance,
It is important to mention that we sell our Intel chipsets and processors to third party manufacturers and they design their own computers with their own features, settings and capabilities. For that reason they design their own drivers, to meet the exact specifications on their computers.
I recommend you install the latest customized driver released by your manufacture. Also I would suggest you to make sure that your Laptop has the latest BIOS version, and chipset driver.
thanks for asking, but unfortunately no progress here.
I re-installed the device using the OE M's "drivers and utilities DVD", checked for further updates and there were none.
Contacting the OEM (Terra) probably is not worth a try, why should they deal with retail customers.
I contacted the reseller, but did not receive any answer so far.
My resources for wasting time on that options are limited; in the end we will probably have to sue them for exchanging the device for a better configurated device.
We can't use that device as is. Imagine you go into presentation with potential customers and your screens scrabble like that... you won't make a single contract.
We have some 200 devices and I found out that this is indeed the one-and-only with this Intel HD Graphics, and also the first and most likely last we ever bought from that OEM.
If there is any solution or final resolution, I will post again here.
I found this, please take a look on that and let me know if it helps.
