    Blank screen after installing recent Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows?

    thevil

      Do you have the same problem? Let me and Intel know!

      After installing the following drivers my Windows Vista 64 displays blank (black) screen instead of login screen:

      • 15.17.4.64.2119 (8.15.10.2119)
      • 15.17.3.64.2104 (8.15.10.2104)
      • 15.17.1.64.2086 (8.15.10.2086)

      The latest driver that seems to work as far as I can tell now (after few hours of installing drivers back and forth) is the LAST available for download as of today i.e. 2010-06-01: 15.16.5.64.2021 (8.15.10.2021)

      If anybody at Intel is finally to look at this PROBLEM (I have seen and joined a similar post for 15.17.1.64.2086 = 8.15.10.2086 only) following is the display properties dump made with working driver (15.16.5.64.2021 = 8.15.10.2021):
