      Intel 4th gen hd 4600 will not work with new drivers 4501+ on Windows 10 when Hypervisor is enabled.

      Effect: Causes false phantom monitors to show up in device manager and settings.

      External monitor isn't detected.

      Intel Graphics Control Panel will not open.

      General performance issues like lag and frame rate drops.

      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. Update Intel driver to new version 4501 or higher.  Dell recommended driver is 4531.  Have tried them all.
      2. Enable hypervisor auto by installing Hyper V or editing BCD
      3. External monitor will not work
      4. 4 Ghost non PNP monitors appear in device manager

      I have 3 dxdiag files here:

      1. DxDiag4624NoHV - Intel driver 4624 working with Hyper V disabled
      2. DxDiag4624wHV_bug - Intel driver 4624 NOT working Hyper V enabled
      3. DxDiag4463wHVWorks - Intel driver 4463 works with Hyper V enabled but older driver where scaling issues still exist
