    DX9 dark overlay issue on Iris Pro 6200



      Provide a detailed description of the issue


      All of the DX9 games have black overlays with MSI Afterburner, no matter what I do. DX11 overlays are fine. AMD & NVIDIA cards have working (colored) overlay on any DX version.

      Tested games:

      Counter-Strike Global Offensive

      Rocket League

      Call of Duty 4

      Mirror's Edge

      Always (100%): X

      Often (51-99%):

      Sporadic (20-50%):

      Very Sporadic (<20%):

      Hardware (HW)

      Brand and Model of the system.

      Intel 5675C Iris Pro 6200

      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).
      = Local Flat Panel (Laptop panel)
      EFP = External Flat Panel (Monitor you plug in)


      Dell U2312HM

      How much memory [RAM] in the system (see note2 below).


      Provide any other hardware needed to replicate the issue.
      ie: Cables&brand, cable type [vga, hdmi, DP, etc], dock, dongles/adapters, etc


      Hardware Stepping (see note1 below).


      Software (SW)

      Operating System version (see note2 below).

      Windows 10 Pro 10.0.10586

      VBIOS (video BIOS) version. This can be found in “information page” of CUI (right click on Desktop and select “Graphics Properties”.


      Graphics Driver version; for both integrated Intel and 3rd party vendors (see note2 below).

      SW or Apps version used to replicate the issue.



      Single display, clone, or extended (see note2 below).

      1 display

      Display resolution & refresh rate setting of each display (see note2 below).

      1080p 60Hz

      AC or DC mode, i.e. is power cable plugged in or not?


      How to repro

      Please provide steps to replicate the issue.  These steps are very crucial to finding the root cause and fix.
      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. Install MSI Afterburner and Rivatuner statics server
      2. Turn on the overlay in Rivatuner Statics server (and pick a color for it)
      3. Open the DX9 games mentioned above
      4. You'll see that the overlay is dark black and very hard to see instead the color you set
