    [Intel HD Graphics] Windows XP randomly BSOD's due to igxprd32 driver


      A newly installed Windows XP SP3 with all updates installed quite randomly and quite often BSOD's (crashes) in the newest Intel driver (

      I'm not running any graphical (3d) applications. I have an Intel Core i5 530 CPU.


      For the last two hours I've already had three crashes. Three minidumps can be downloaded here.


      Update: the crashes most often occur when I'm working in Miscrosoft Visio 2003. The computer also crashes in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.12.

          I wonder who's answering e-mail requests:

          Intel provides generic versions of the Intel(R) graphics drivers for general purposes through the Intel Download Center.  However, your computer manufacturer may  have altered the features, incorporated customizations, or made other  changes to the graphics driver software or software packaging that they  provide for your computer.  To avoid any potential  installation incompatibilities on your computer, Intel recommends that  you first check with your computer manufacturer and use the driver  software provided by your computer manufacturer.


          To download the latest generic driver from the Intel Download Center, visit: http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/detect.htm


          If those “Blue Screens Of Death” happen only when Microsoft* Visio* 2003 is opened, you may need to check with Microsoft* for any patches or updates.

          You can also, remove and reinstall the application for testing purposes.


          I have never recieved such a "profound" off-the-shelf answer, please, do not send people such atrocities in the future. It might enrage them to death.


          1) User applications cannot by theory crash OS via its graphics drivers. If it happens then most likely graphicals drivers are to be blamed.




          2) This piece of hardware is intended to be run by genuine Intel drivers (as all Intel Core i3/i5 CPUs contain identical GPU).

            Here comes the first bump.

              So maybe if you provide some useful information, some one might be able to assist you?

              After all, this is a USERS forum. A lot of the moderators are Intel folks that know quite a bit, but a lot of the inputs come from users.


              Mini Dumps are nice as long as someone is willing to go to an unknown site and download unknown files and load them into their system so they can read the message that was likely displayed on your screen or is in your event log.


              If it was not for the fact that this is a virtualized crash and kill system, I would not touch your downloads.

              Who's hardware are you running? Have the drivers you are using been tested on that product?

              Vendors do edit the drivers for quirks in their hardware, Running a generic driver can cause the issues you are seeing.

              You either have 1) bad driver, 2) bad hardware 3) bad ram. or a bad program looping the video

                It's not really my problem, it's my friend who has this issue so I created this thread on his behalf.


                As for you investigation - thank you for pointing me out what I already know, I've already (win)dbg'ed these crash dumps and already found out this crash is due to an infinite loop in graphics drivers. Alas, you haven't showed that, but dbg clearly shows that the system stuck in Intel drivers.


                As for you suggesstion of using vendor supplied drivers: the laptop crashes with original Dell drivers.


                As for you suggestion that maybe some of my hardware is faulty: no, we've run memtest for a while, also I ran some CPU intensive applications (which test system stability) - non of them has showed any anomalies or problems, so it's very likely my hardware is not faulty.


                The system is otherwise rock solid and doesn't crash.

                  Crashes also occur in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.12:



                  "The display driver igxprd32 has stopped working             normally. Save your work and reboot the system to restore full display             functionality. The next time you reboot the machine a dialog will be displayed             giving you a chance to report this failure to Microsoft."
