Same situation here, though with a different motherboard (Asus Sabertooth Z87), same processor.
Drivers seem to work, Bios settings are verified correct, yet the Intel HD Graphics Control Pannel Crashes instantly upon launch. You can see the window opening and instantly crashing (really quickly though).
No error is shown or any indication of what might be wrong.
I'm using a NVidia GTX660 gfx card, and Windows 8 Pro x64.
I've done all the checks I can come up with (been in IT for almost 20 years now) but I cannot find what could possibly be wrong.
thanks for the fast reply - as you mentioned window opening and instantly crashing.
Can you try uninstalling the current driver and installing the latest driver from the following link?
It's the driver I'm currently using.
same here - have the latest driver - and still application crashes.
At this point and since we have tried to replicate the issue with no success and provided the driver from our web site, I recommend you contacting the computer manufacturer in order to update the drivers, including the Management Engine and the Bios and also to get their custom graphics driver specifically design for your unit.
I'm not sure I agree with your conclusion, but I take it that you feel that you have investigated this issue thoroughly enough to be sure that it cannot be an issue on your end, right?
I'll see what Asus will come up with and report back when they bring out a new driver.
Ok, I went ahead and dug some more around the internet. Turns out that the solution is posted in another forum.
It has nothing to do with drivers, and everything with settings:
The third post in this forum is the way to solve this. It's a strange way of doing things, since we basically have to 'fake' a monitor connected to this output before the control panel works. A more elegant solution would be to make it work, but notify the user that no monitor is connected to it.
Hope this helps others with the same problem.
