    Intel HD Graphics 515 - can it playback Bluray-3D content?

    BetterToday

      Hi,

       

      I'm owning a HP Elite x2 1012 G1, equipped with an Intel HD Graphics 515 graphics chip.

       

      The chip's driver dialog claims that the chip supports 3D playpack, but when I have PowerDVD 16/17 try to playback a Bluray-3D's movie content (having a 3D DLP Link enabled beamer connected to my notebook), the following error message appears:

       

      Screenshot 3D playback error.png

       

      The error message I get is in German. Here is the translation of it:

      Playback stopped because your graphics card driver is incompatible. Make sure it meets the minimum requirements. You can find additional information on the CyberLink FAQ web site (code-0012).

       

      Run the BD/HD Advisor tool for more information.

      What's wrong? Why can't I playback a 3D movie's content in Full-HD with the Intel HD Graphics 515 although its driver dialog claims to be able to do so?

              Hello BetterToday,

              Thank you for your response,

              I was reviewing the information in the DxDiag file provided and first I was able to see that your processor has a newer Graphics Driver. Please refer to the following link to download and install the Driver:

              https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27484/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-65-?product=88199

              Also, please make sure to confirm with HP* and see if the built-in monitor/display supports 3D playback. This is to make sure that you will be able to watch it properly. If not, please attempt to connect an external monitor that supports 3D with either High Speed HDMI cable or Display Port 1.2.

                Hello intel_corp,

                 

                today I tried to install the driver you suggested.

                 

                Unfortunately I cannot install this driver. It aborts with a message telling me that this driver isn't validated by the machine's manufacturer. I am supposed to contact HP.

                 

                 

                Error Message.png

                Translation:

                The driver being installed could not be validated on this computer.

                Get the corresponding driver from the manufacturer of your computer

                 

                Setup is being aborted.

                 

                Do you need further information?

                Click "Yes" to get redirected to the Intel support website.

                 

                 

                Can you please escalate and make HP aware of this issue so they can provide this latest driver on their download site as soon as possible?

                 

                Thanks,

                Axel

                  Hello BetterToday,

                  Thank you for your response,

                  I was double-checking the information and researching a little more about this problem and I see that we do not know yet if the display you have supports 3D or not. 

                  Also, the driver I have provided you is a generic Intel ® driver. This driver should work just fine with your graphics controller, make sure to first download the ".zip? file. In order to install it properly please refer to the following steps:

                  1 - Unzip the file to a designated location or folder. 
                  2 - Right-click Windows Start icon and open Device Manager.
                  3 - Click Yes when prompted for permission from User Account Control. 
                  4 - Expand the Display adapters section. 
                  5 - Right-click the Intel® graphics entry and select Update Driver Software. 
                  6 - Click "Browse my computer for driver software".
                  7 - Click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
                  8 - Click "Have Disk". 
                  9 - Click "Browse". 
                  10 - Access the designated location or folder, and access a folder called "Graphics". 
                  11 - Select the file called "igdlh64" or "igdlh". 
                  12 - Click Open, then click OK, and finally click Next. Drivers are now being installed. 
                  13 - Reboot your computer

                    I didn't know the information about the display would be relevant for this case. So I compiled the first DxDiag file without having the 3D beamer connected.

                     

                    Attached please now find an updated DxDiag information file, compiled while the 3D beamer was attached to the notebook.

                        I was checking the information and I can see that you tried to open the ".exe" instead of the manual update. Please follow the next steps in order to do the manual driver update:

                        1 - Unzip the file to a designated location or folder. 
                        2 - Right-click Windows Start icon and open Device Manager.

                        7 - Click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
                        8 - Click "Have Disk". 
                        9 - Click "Browse".

                          Hi, intel_corp David,

                           

                          today I tried your suggestion.

                           

                          While the new driver has successfully been installed and the error message doesn't appear anymore with the new driver, the result is rather quirky now (click the following hyperlink to see the video):

                           

                          HD Graphics 515 Driver Error

                           

                          (My camera had difficulties to focus on the flickering image. I screened a trailer onto my window blinds, so the result is rather bad, yet sufficient to see the effect.)

                           

                          Attached please also find a new DxDiag file, representing the situation with the new driver.

                           

                           

                          PS:

                          I had a similar issue with my Surface Pro 3, having a Intel HD Graphics 5000 chipset installed. Using your suggestion on that machine today with a corresponding driver remedied the problem there successfully. Yet, I had to undergo the same cumbersome driver installation procedure on that machine. May I suppose to have your new drivers signed by the corresponding manufacturers (HP and Microsoft) and get them forwarded to Windows Update?

                            Hello BetterToday

                            Thank you for your response,

                            Up to this point we have tried the different options to fix the problem you are currently experiencing, what I could recommend you to do and just to check and see if it is a driver problem is to rollback the driver to a previous version.

                            Please download and install the following:

                            https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26941/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-46-?product=88354

                            Following the same steps:

                            1 - Unzip the file to a designated location or folder. 
                            2 - Right-click Windows Start icon and open Device Manager.
                            3 - Click Yes when prompted for permission from User Account Control. 
                            4 - Expand the Display adapters section. 
                            5 - Right-click the Intel® graphics entry and select Update Driver Software. 
                            6 - Click "Browse my computer for driver software".
                            7 - Click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
                            8 - Click "Have Disk". 
                            9 - Click "Browse". 
                            10 - Access the designated location or folder, and access a folder called "Graphics". 
                            11 - Select the file called "igdlh64" or "igdlh". 
                            12 - Click Open, then click OK, and finally click Next. Drivers are now being installed. 
                            13 - Reboot your computer

                            If this does not help then please contact HP and see if they have a fix or can check what could be happening with the system as this would tell us that the driver is not the issue.

                              Thank you for your continued support, intel_corp, David,

                               

                              I will try the older driver tonight.

                               

                              I didn't mention yet that a peculiarity of the HP Elite x2 1012 G1 is that it can only be connected to HDMI when it runs on battery. This is due to the fact that it only comes with a single (USB-C type) connector. So, if you plug an HDMI cable into that plug you cannot connect the power adapter into this plug at the same time.

                               

                              Would you mind forwarding to your testing team to see whether the drivers fully support 3D playback on low power profile (i.e. when running on battery)?

                               

                              I don't assume this to be a hardware issue as the Intel HD Graphics 5000 chip, built into the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, is even smaller than the Intel HD Graphics 515 chip, built into the HP Elite x2 1012 G1.

                               

                              Best regards,

                              Axel

                                That's not a "peculiarity"; that's the standard model for most modern tablets and laptops. If you want to remain externally powered yet still connect an external monitor via this USB-C connector, you need to use an adapter something like this: Amazon.com: USB-C to 4K HDMI + USB 3.0 + USB-C Charging Port (note: not endorsing this particular adapter; just using it as an example). It allows the power cable to be connected while still allowing the connection of a HDMI monitor (and getting an additional USB 3.0 port to boot).

                                 

                                Also, what are these chips you keep referring to? The Intel HD Graphics engine is built into the processor; there is no separate graphics chip.

                                 

                                Just saying,

                                ...S

                                    That's your thesis, but not a proven reality. Let's better stick with "that's a common model for many modern tablets and laptops."

                                     

                                    you need to use an adapter something like this:

                                    No, that won't work. HP is using USB device identification to only allow their proprietary power adapter to be able to feed their devices.

                                     

                                    The Intel HD Graphics engine is built into the processor; there is no separate graphics chip.

                                    No, it's a GPU. Refer to the documentation.

                                     

                                     

                                    Let's stick to the original question and concentrate on providing help. Let's not get into nitpicking. I won't reply to distracting off-topic messages. This will be my only reply on this off-topic matter.
