    Intel HD Driver System Freeze/Crash




      I find using the Intel HD Graphics Driver (Windows 7 64-bit) is causing the system to freeze and become unresponsive. If I uninstall the HD graphics driver the system runs fine with the default VGA drivers.  I have tried both the versions and and both are causing a system freeze.


      System specs -

      Processor - i7 2600K

      MB - DH67BL

      RAM - 8 GB.


      I have read through other threads like this one http://communities.intel.com/thread/20439?start=0&tstart=0 and there are a new set of drivers at http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=19679 mentioned in the thread.


      Planning to try them out in the hope it will fix the situation.


      Not sure what else to try and would appreciate any input.

              Toujours le meme probleme apres changement de la ram !!! par contre pas de problemes avec une carte graphique.

              je soupçonne la montée en frequence de l'intel HD lorsque le turbo s'active.

              apres une dizaine de minutes environ ça crash, des sortes de flashs à l'ecran et reset impossible.

              C'est bien la partie Intel graphique qui pose probleme.

                Hello moserw,


                I see that you are experiencing random Blue Screen Of Death during normal operation of your computer and that you have tried all the latest drivers form the Intel(R) web site.


                Regarding the problem that you are experiencing, I see 2 possible scenarios.


                The first one is that you are using the Intel(R) generic drivers and your system does not fully support them as you require system specific drivers. These system specific drivers should be provided by your system manufacturer.


                The second scenario is that your BIOS is causing conflicts with the latest drivers, for this I recommend you to make sure that you are using the latest BIOS provided by your system manufacturer for your computer.
