    BSOD immediately after installing driver for Intel HD Graphics 3000

    jld

      Relevant system specs:

      • CPU/graphics: i5-2500k (HD Graphics 3000)
      • Mobo: ASRock H67M-ITX/HT
      • boot disk: Intel X25-M SSD
      • OS: Windows 7 64 bit

       

      Boots fine with default VGA driver.  After I install the graphics drivers and restart, I get a BSOD during boot up (error is irql_not_less_or_equal; don't have the other details at hand).  I am certain that the proximate cause of the BSOD is the installation of the graphics drivers because I have reproduced the problem half a dozen times.  (After boot fails, I have Windows 7 repair itself, which it does by restoring to a state before I installed the graphics drivers.)  I installed the version of the drivers that shipped with my motherboard, as well as the most recent version (dated 3/10, I think) from Intel's website.

       

      Any suggestions?
