    HD 3000 driver forced subpixel antialising after update to 9.x version

    puppy

      I have Lenovo X220 notebook (Core i5, HD 3000), Windows 7 x64 SP1. I can't stand any kind of antialiasing so I use Windows Classic theme and have ClearType disabled in Performance Options.

       

      After video driver update from version 8.15.10.2769 to 9.17.10.2843 (Lenovo specific versions) I noticed the black text on grey background is blurry and some kind of antialiasing (different than the Windows one) was applied after the update. I couldn't find any way to disable it, no such option in Intel Graphics panel. The only way to get rid of it was rollback to old 8 version. Notice I'm talking about Windows desktop, not a 3D games.

       

      Is there any solution for it (at least edit a value in registry) ? I don't want to use older (possibly buggy and vulnerable) version but this kind of forced antialiasing is blocking issue for me. Attached screenshot (poor image quality) shows the difference, it needs a fullscreen view. Notice the forced red "ghosting" on the right edge of black pixels.

      More observations. It affects all output on the notebook display, not a text rendering only. For example BMP or PNG image with screenshot of Start menu without antialiased text also looks blurry now. On the other hand digital output to external monitor is not affected (not blurry). It seems as the new driver set some kind of hardware antialiasing (or less sharpness) in the notebook display controller, is it possible ? I've tried all advanced Intel Graphics panel settings and nothing helped.

       

      The change (non-blurry to blurry text) happens in the middle of a new driver installation, even before restart.

       

      Thanks.

          The device drivers are customized drivers provided by your computer manufacturer, in such case you should check with Lenovo directly to check on them.

           

          Alternatively, you may test using the generic drivers that we have posted on our site at:

            Suppose that Lenovo will not solve it and the generic driver does not work (on screen display and other features), what else to check ? Is there any detailed list of changes made to the driver between these two versions ? The issue goes beyond Windows software antialiasing (ClearType) that can be easily detected and explained by making a screenshot (PrintScreen) and zoom it (paste and zoom in MS Paint). It is rather close to a hardware based sharpness control used in some desktop monitors.

             

            In other words, is there any antialiasing technology added to the Intel kernel driver 9.x version that might cause such behavior (no 3D applications) and it is independent of Windows ClearType ?

             

            Can I enable any diagnostic debug log to help resolve it ?

              Could you please confirm what happens when you test our generic driver?

               

              We may not establish what would be different from the drivers provided by your OEM and the generic drivers we provide. What we may provide is the release notes of the drivers we provide and that is available in our download center.

                I've tested latest generic Intel graphics driver 15.28.15.64.3062 (9.17.10.3062) and the issue is exactly the same. The interesting part is that it seems to be more like a hardware setting of the internal display controller since it affects displaying text on PNG images (screenshots) as well but does not affect digital output to external monitor. It reminds me sharpness hardware setting available on some LCD monitors that allows to make whole display look blurry. Someone calls that "enhanced readability" but for me such feature is killing Again, please do not confuse it with ClearType, it makes blurry font rendering only but this issue affects everyting that is displayed. Aero is disabled.

                 

                Note that using the Intel generic driver causes Lenovo brightness control and on screen display to fail but this is as expected, that's why there is the Lenovo OEM specific driver.

                 

                I also exported content of registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Intel\Display for both 8.x and 9.x driver versions to compare them. The only interesting difference I found is:

                 

                [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Intel\Display\igfxcui\Media]

                "EnableFMD"=dword:00000001

                 

                The value is '00000000' for the 8.x one (that one without the issue) and 00000001 for 9.x one (the one having the issue).

                 

                I have installed all Windows updates except KB2670838 that is known to have stability issues.

                  Are you seeing this same behavior if you test connecting an external video monitor or display to the system?

                   

                  Could you please provide the dxdiag report in your system? (Go to start, type dxdiag, press enter and click on Save all information)

                    No, external monitor (connected via DisplayPort) does not have the issue.

                      Could you please provide more screenshots, one showing what you are referring to with anti-aliased pictures and also one of the text aliasing issue, but with not zoom so just with a normal size/view?

                        The driver-caused aliasing issue is not limited to Windows text rendering only but affects everything that is displayed on the notebook display. I'll describe the test steps again:

                         

                        1. The Lenovo 8.15.0010.2769 driver is installed.

                        2. Store following screenshot image (taken from Start menu) BlurryDisplayTestImage.png to a folder

                        BlurryDisplayTestImage.png

                        3. Open the BlurryDisplayTestImage.png in MS Paint or any other graphic viewer without resizing it. It contains non-anti-aliased black text on grey background.

                        4. Notice the text on notebook display is sharp and non-anti-aliased. Take a macro picture of the display by camera.

                        5. Install Lenovo 9.17.0010.2843 driver or latest generic Intel Graphics driver and restart.

                        6. Repeat step 3.

                        7. Notice the text on notebook display is not sharp and anti-aliased. Take a macro picture of the display by camera and compare it with picture taken in step 4. You will notice a (hardware based ?, kernel driver based ?) subpixel anti-aliasing applied to the image, as shown on my picture in first post.

                         

                        I use the test screeshot image in step 2 to prevent any potential issues with Windows ClearType (that I have disabled) but the issue is same for text rendered by Windows (it becomes anti-aliased even with ClearType disabled). So it looks like a more low-level issue because external display output is not affected, its output is exactly the same in steps 4 and 7.

                          Is there anything else I can provide ? I think the steps and sample picture should be enough to understand the issue.

                           

                          Additional question, when exactly the new driver version actually becomes effective (loaded) ? Is it right after the installation of new version has finished (before restart) or after restart ? Because the issue with antialiasing happens in the middle of installation of the new driver, even before restart. So it could be just a wrong setting that applies to the old version as well (in case the new version is applied after restart).

                            The driver installation completes until the system is fully restarted

                             

                            Concerning the additional information that was requested, we explicitly need more screenshots, one showing what you are referring to with anti-aliased pictures and also one of the text aliasing issue, all of them with not zoom so just in normal size and not just a png file that has been cut.

                              That's interesting because the issue happens in the middle of new driver installation. That would support the idea it is just a global driver setting made by the new version driver installation that also affects the old one (until reboot). In other words it is not caused by the new driver code in DLL or SYS files itself but its setting (in the registry) made by new version installation. The scenario can be as follows:

                               

                              1. old driver 8.x is installed with its default settings -> no issue

                              2. driver 9.x setup is started -> no issue

                              3. driver 9.x setup completes, some settings (in the registry ?) has been modified by the 9.x setup but the old 8.x driver is still used -> the anti-aliasing issue is present since that, even with current 8.x driver (assuming the 9.x version becomes effective later, after restart)

                              4. restart

                              5. driver 9.x instalattion completes -> anti-aliasing issue is present with 9.x driver

                               

                              I would like to find the registry setting that causes it.

                               

                              As for screenshots. There is no difference between "text" and "graphics", consider Windows desktop as a bitmap that have pixels with colors. Another example: I can open MS Paint fullscreen, fill background with gray color, draw single vertical black line and take a screenshot (and post it here). The line will look anti-aliased on the internal notebook display with 9.x driver version and non-anti-aliased with 8.x driver version. Again, the png file screenshot will be pixel-by-pixel exactly the same for 8.x and 9.x driver version. The anti-aliasing is not made on that level.

                               

                              It is exactly same as "l" letter in the "Calculator" word in my small screenshot. It is just black line on gray background that shows the added anti-aliasing by red subpixel on the right edge. The screenshot is attached, contains both pictures and text.Desktop.png

                                Could you please try the latest BIOS for your computer? This is posted at:

                                Furthermore, please confirm, if the issue happens once the system has already restarted after the driver installation

                                  Updating BIOS to latest 1.38 version (and installing the driver after that) did not help. But I found that my assumption that the new driver is used after restart was wrong. It is loaded during the installation so when the installer finish (before restart), the new driver is already loaded and used. And yes, the issue persists after restart as well.

                                   

                                  I saved content of [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Intel] and [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet] registry and IntelGFX.log file for both driver versions. There are differences in some HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000 values.

                                   

                                  Since the issue is clear now, can you tell what feature of new 9.x driver can cause that ? Could it be something with Color Management, ICC profiles, software brightness/contrast color distortion algorithm (note that external monitor is not affected) ? I have latest Lenovo monitor INF file version 4.38 installed. It would support following comparison of the screenshot area. Notice that the solid background color looks different for 9.x and 8.x driver version:

                                  Thanks.

                                   

                                  There is another customer experiencing similar issue on Lenovo T420 notebook. He has another experience that might help to resolve the issue: "The only this that has helped so far was running on low battery when all the sudden and by itself the font display became all good for until I plugged the power source back in." ... "We couldn't find any difference between the settings on my laptop compared to a colleague's exact same alike that displays all just perfect."
