I have a dell Inspiron N5110 with Intel mobile 3000 series dispaly card on Windows 8 . Even after installing http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=21180 Intel beta driver the dispay is not up. I have to disable display card to view display in my laptop.
Is there any solution for the problem?
I have the same graphics card/driver as OP, and I'm experiencing an issue with playing Minecraft. I'll bump this cause I'm sure other people are looking for help with this too. Did everything humanly possible and my issue still hasn't been resolved. Talked to Microsoft, Toshiba, and Intel tech support and nothing works.
Hi Sir Robert! Are there really no plans on releasing new drivers for Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipsets for Windows 8? Since I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 my graphics performance is very poor! I just need a control panel for my GPU to perform at its max capacity, because I really need to set the power from Balanced (which is default) to Maximum Performance to prevent my screen hanging for 3-5 seconds during "sudden high" of graphics, if you know what I mean, or could you just provide us an Intel Graphics Control panel for this problem to be solved? Thanks!
Hey Ryan! Have you tried installing the previously released driver for Windows 7 32/64-bit? It works for me!
Just download the zip file, extract it to a folder, then go to device manager, right click your display adapter and then click update driver, then choose from a list,etc., then click have disk, and browse for the Graphics folder in the files that you have extracted, then click ok, wait for the driver to be installed, and done! I hope it solves you problem for playing Minecraft.
Yes, you can get things like OpenGL 2.1 support for Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family (Mobile Intel GM45 Express Chipset) working on Windows 8 simply by downgrading to the previous Windows 7 drivers!
The in-box drivers for Windows 8 Driver for Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1) are version 220.127.116.1102, which only supports OpenGL 1.1 (checking with tools such as GLView). This means you can't play games like Minecraft or Angry Birds, even though you could play them under Windows 7.
The solution is to roll back to the latest Windows 7 drivers, version 18.104.22.1685.
To do this you need to modify the installation INF file to allow installation on Windows 8 and then use advanced reboot to allow Windows 8 to install the unsigned driver. See instructions at TachisAlopex: Windows 8 and Intel graphics driver to patch the INF file, but I just used General - Advanced startup in the Windows 8 settings to load the unsigned driver.
Seeing as the Windows 7 drivers version 2555 work fine in Windows 8 with Open GL 2.1 support, I can't understand why the official version 2702 Windows 8 drivers removed it.
