    Intel HD3000 won't remember manually set refresh rate (default display)

    pirdop

      Dear all,

      I have the following problem on a Windows 7 Home Premium, Intel i5-2520, 4GB RAM, system.

      For some reason windows and/or intel’s driver for the HD3000 card doesn't remember the manually set refresh rate. Every time the laptop is tuned off (including, hibernation, restart and standby states) the refresh rate is set to 40Hz. I tried several times to set it to 60Hz and it works perfect until next power event. This is very annoying as every time it has to be set manually otherwise one can see the screen’s flickering on a grey/black background.

      I’m referring above to the notebook’s internal “built-in Display”. I have never experienced a similar behavior with any PC system.

       

      Is there a registry key or something else to force the driver to use 60Hz?

       

      One more question: is it normal to wait several seconds until intels driver is called from the taskbar icon. It doesn’t respond immediately.

       

      The computer was bought in November, Sony  Vaio SA series.

       

      The above described problem occurs with both, the default driver which the system came with and the latest Intel driver (downloaded 4 days ago).

      In the system properties the Display uses the default MS driver.

       

      Thanks you all in advance!

          Hi DaFelix,

           

          What is the full model name of the system you're using?  Have you tried using the driver that just went live yesterday (2932)?  Can you provide a copy of your dxdiag so I can take a look at your specs as well?  Start -> Run -> Dxdiag -> Save All Information.  Just copy and paste the info here.

           

          Thanks,

          -Nic

            Hi Nic,

            No I haven't updated to the latest driver. I will try that next weekend.

             

            Here is the DxDiag information. Please note that again I manually fixed hte refresh rate to 60Hz.

             

            The system is a Sony Vaio SA series notebook.

              Thanks for that info DaFelix.  I just checked the support site for your machine, and it looks as if it has a discreet graphics card for an AMD Radeon*, is that correct?  There were no drivers listed on the site for Intel® graphics products either.  It sounds like this system isn't designed to use the GPU capabilities of our CPU.  Let me know if our latest drivers fix your issue though.

               

              Thanks,

              -Nic

                Hello Nic,

                yes you are right, well half right. It has a discreet graphics card AMD Radeon 6630, but the system is supposed to be relying mainly on the integrated intel hd 300o one. and when specific graphics power is needed to switch to the discrete one (this is done via a hardware switch ot what Sony calls a speed mode. the default is a Stamina mode and then the laptop sole graphic power comes from the HD3000). I use the discrete graphics extremely rare, as heat and battery life become issues when on it and my work requires very little graphics power. Therefore for me is essential to fix this issue, as it's annoying andd extremely tiring to see the flickering on dark backgrounds.

                 

                thanks

                 

                As I said before I will try the latest driver this weekend, but this is definitely a software i.e. driver issue. Is there a registry key or something else that I can force the driver to outputs always at 59Hz or 60Hz?

                 

                thanks again
