What is exactly the graphics driver version?
Have you tested Windows* 8 drivers?
They are available as beta but they work on win7 and win8http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Graphics&ProductLine=Laptop+graphics+drivers&ProductProduct=3rd+Generation+Intel%C2%AE+Core%E2%84%A2+Processors+with+Intel%C2%AE+HD+Graphics+4000%2f2500
What is exactly the impact? How many computers with same issue? Is there any type of software we can download to replicate the issue?
I am having this same issue. I have the Intel HD Graphics 4000, and I just downloaded the latest drivers (18.104.22.16875) as you suggested, but it is still happening.
It happens only when PFD_DOUBLEBUFFER is not specified in the pixel format, as Andrew suggested.
I have tried this on other graphics cards, such as NVidia or AMD; the problem does not seem to exist on those, which makes me think that it's a driver issue.
I can point you to some software I have developed that you can use to test this, but I would need to get it to you privately, since it is not publicly available. Please let me know how I can do so, as I would really like to get a fix for this.
Allan, I have downloaded the latest drivers (22.214.171.12432) and the issue still exists. I would really appreciate it if you could help me get some resolution on this issue.
Have you tried the 15.31 2885 beta drivers?, I find these are the best for the HD 4000 at the moment, especially for OpenGL applications :-
Hello, thanks. No, I haven't tried those beta drivers. Why aren't they available from the Intel web site?
Because they are leaked Haswell betas, they are the first of the 15.31 series and come with a newer control panel also (as well as fixing a stack load of bugs!)
Try them, can't hurt , I wouldn't use any other driver on my HD 4000 system to be honest, all of the 15.28 series have been pretty poor so far IMHO, especially for gaming performance/compatibility.
