I am getting a crash when playing video, particularly full screen video, on my i3 540 HTPC. Usually there is no .dmp file, but I have gotten 3 of them from the daily crashes in LiveKernelReports. The problem is semi-intermittent, but nearly exclusively happens when playing video. Out of the 50 or so crashes, 1 of them happened at desktop.
When playing the video, the system will freeze. The display will present with ~14 columns, alternating between clean display and garbled. The garbled columns appear like stacked = signs, about 20px high each, with alternating garbage and clean display (iirc.). Anyway, it always presents the same way, leading me to believe it is a video issue. Also, on reboot the machine needs to get through post with video off, then rebooted again to get video out to work. This issue is the same using dvi=>hdmi or hdmi, but hdmi is even touchier.
All drivers are up to date already, by manual inspection and according to the intel software update scanning tool. The latest video is 2104, which I have. Chipset & video bios are all current. Bios is flashed to latest. All the basic bases have been covered.
I doubt it is a heat issue, since I can:
- Run 4 threads of distrubited.net (max 100% on both cores, as well as the 2 fake HT cores)
- Run FurMark at the same time, stressing the GPU directly
- Do this for 24 hours, in the same enviroment
- Voltages all look fine, no spikes or drops according to HW monitor and several other monitoring tools.

The 3 minidumps all point to igdkmd64.sys. I have them to attach, but can not in this forum software. They look sorta like this, but this is from the previous (2086 build) if I am not mistaken. I have not had a crash produce a .dmp file since then, it usually goes down too fast.
Probably caused by : igdkmd64.sys ( igdkmd64+1cc60 )
