There was a windows defender update meanwhile so previous point is still bugged... I really don't know how restore points work (should I have more then one), but when I tried doing that windows only offered one that won't fix bug.
Windows is up to date.
I also tried earlier versions of driver, same problem.
This happens when i try to install it.
And then Driver installation module does this on and on.
I can reinstall windows, but my concern is if the problem is within graphics card?
The "graphics card" is actually a part of a "system on a chip (SOC)" together with the CPU.
If it was defect, your computer would not work at all.
Your screenshot names code 18, honestly i never have seen that before.
Here is the advice from Microsoft:
Reinstall the device driver manually
- From Start, search for device manager and select Device Manager from the results.
- Right-click the device in the list.
- Select Uninstall from the menu that appears.
- After the device is uninstalled, choose Action on the menu bar.
- Select Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver.
