Thank you for your fast reply.
Unfortunately neither the latest Intel, nor OEM driver (http://download1.msi.com/files/downloads/dvr_exe/intel_vga_7_mb_81.zip) resolves this issue.
I'll provide you with a list of all the drivers I've used to test this:
Up until 2932 does not show this issue, every driver since 3071 does...
Can you please post your dxdiag report here?
Checking the dxdiag report it seems that you have the driver version 2932 installed. Please try updating the graphics driver that can be downloaded at the following link:
I appreciate your help, but I've already tried 3345.
Please re-read my OP: every driver after 2932 crashes the game, that's why I have to stick with 2932.
I've provided you with a complete list of the drivers I tested (including 3345) in my second post.
The drivers I'd gladly test are those between 2932 and 3071, or those newer than 3355, if you could provide me any of them...
Beelzebassie Hi, Beelzebassie I am having the same issue with Arma 3, I had windows 8 when I bought my laptop and Arma 3 worked fine for months and hours, but after I updated to windows 8.1 two weeks ago I stated to get the same message, I've been trying to find a solution and I haven't had any luck, I have the hd 4000 installed as well , I already tried different drivers as well and update to the 3345 but still crashes.
My question is, is Arma 3 still running fine with the driver 2932 if so, could you post a link to download it, I can find the driver 2932 either to download.
Thank you !!!
EDIT: Tried 3368 and 3379, both failed...
Yes Jimmy, 2932 still works like a charm; no crashes at all since I downgraded to it...
(There appears to be a new recent version (3368), but I haven't tested it yet.)
Google is your friend:
Tried 3431... Still nothing, very disappointing.
Can you try our latest driver version 3412? You can get it here:
Let me know the results. In case it is not working, update your system (BIOS & graphics) and post your latest dxdiag report report and graphics report here.
Tried 3412 and 3464ß, both have the game freeze within 5 minutes...
For my DxDiag log I'd like to refer to my post from December 10th; the system remained the same.
How do I make a 'graphics report'?
EDIT: 3540 failed...
Tried 3621 today, which failed also...
What I did notice -- and didn't notice before -- is that all the drivers after 2932 suffer from the following bug, and 2932 doesn't: Re: Virtual memory is @ 100% if i run a game at a different resolution than the desktop resolution!
Microsoft has published and provided information about this issue. It is important to say that the Virtual Memory problem is not related to our graphics driver. Check the post here:
have the same problem as you and Jimmy (and a lot of others apparently). I have tried to install the old driver (the 2932 as you recommend). However, the computer won't let me. It prompts something like "the computer isn't validated". I have tried to uninstall the lastest intel driver and go back to the windows driver. But with the same problem. I use windows 8.1. Does the old 2932 driver only work with windows 8?
Hope you or intel can find a solution to the problem so that we can play Arma 3 without the constant fear of crashing.
PS I have a Sony Vaio with intel core i7 and intel HD4000 grafics card.
