    graphics problem after windows intel display driver update

    dohduhdah

      Hello.

       

      Recently a driver update was installed on my windows 10 system:

      "Intel Corporation - Display - 2/28/2018 12:00:00 AM - 23.20.16.4973"

       

      Since then I've noticed a problem with windows that repeatedly temporarily turn black when I hover the mouse

      over them and then they return to normal. I've noticed this in multiple unrelated programs, so I suspect it's an issue

      with the recently installed display driver update.

       

      Is there an easy way to resolve this issue or should I just try uninstalling the display driver?

       

      I've included a few screenshots here to illustrate what it looks like when the problem occurs:

       

      I might have multiple instances of the geogebra app open on sceen:

      Then I hover my mouse over the bottom-left window and it goes black for a while (a few seconds or depending

      on whether the mouse is hovering over the window):

      Greetings and thanks in advance for any suggestions on how to resolve this, Niek

            Hello.

            Thanks for your help. I've attached the txt file generated by the intel system support utility.

            Yesterday when I wanted to create a screenshot of the problem it was occurring when I opened the

            first few instances of the app but then when I had four of them tiled on the screen it wouldn't occur

            anymore, so I've created a mock-up in paint to show what it looks like when it does occur.

            If it occurs again (perhaps after a reboot or in another app/program) I'll try the Ctrl-Alt-F8 combination

            (restoring graphics default settings) to see if that makes a difference.

             

            greetings, Niek

              Thank you very much for your reply and the information provided, dohduhdah.

              If the troubleshooting steps above did not work for you, please install the latest graphics drivers provided by Intel®. Click here to download the 4944 version of the Intel® HD Graphics 630 drivers and to complete the installation, please follow these steps:
               

              1. Start Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Device Manager.
              2. Expand "Display Adapter", right-click the Intel Graphics entry, and click Uninstall.
              3. On Confirm Device Removal dialog box, click Delete the driver software for this device option to delete the Intel HD Graphics driver then click OK to start the uninstall process.
              4. When the uninstall process is complete, disconnect your computer from the internet and make sure it will not auto connect when reboot. Restart your system.
              5. Unzip the file to a designated location or folder.
              6. Open Device Manager
              7. Expand the Display adapters section.
              8. Right-click the Intel® graphics entry and select Update Driver Software. (Note: The graphics entry may be "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" if not, please repeat the first 4 steps until you see that on the Display adapters entry.)
              9. Click Browse my computer for driver software.
              10. Click Browse and select the directory where the driver files are found.
              11. Click Next. Drivers are now being installed.

                  Hello,

                  Sorry for the delayed response. So far the problem hasn't occurred again and I didn't try reverting the driver version back from version 4973 to 4944 yet. It seems the problem doesn't affect most software,

                  so it can be hard to test solutions when the problem isn't easily replicated.
                  Eventually I think the chances are likely that the problem will crop up again at some point,

                  so I will be able to experiment some more and see if changing the driver completely resolves it.

                  I will get back to this thread then to report the results, but it might take a while.

                  greetings, Niek
