    any attempt to use i5 native HD graphics fails consistently



      i5 processor i5-3470 @ 3.2 GHz, '2500' graphics


      Gigabyte motherboard: GA-B75M-D3H ver 1.1

      8 GB RAM

      All attempts at using the Intel HD graphics capability, including the very latest Intel drivers, dated January 2014, cause BSOD upon reboot.


      Must go back to safe mode, delete the driver in its entirety, and revert to VGA.


      I have tried a different motherboard, different RAM, many deep parity check scans, you name it. 


      This has been a consistent failure, and has been so, has never worked, for ANY of the HD drivers issued, since I assembled the computer about a year ago.

      Well, the computer runs perfectly otherwise!  But I cannot run programs such as Google Earth, or, any of my CAD software.  I do not use this computer for gaming.

      Is there any hope that a driver will someday come out that will enable the on chip graphics, or, should I just give up and buy some other computer?
