    BSOD on Intel HD 4000 Graphics driver


      Hi all, looking for a little assistance if anyone is willing and able.


      Have had my HTPC up and running for years, decided to upgrade the CPU & RAM.

      mobo: GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 Rev1.0 (link to drivers)

      bios: F10

      OS: Win 7 64bit

      new CPU: i7 3770k

      new RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) (2x8GB)

      onboard graphics HDMI connection to AVR to TV


      Old CPU was an i3-2100.


      I ended up getting a BSOD on startup after updating the Intel graphics driver. (Intel VGA Driver (for Ivy Bridge CPU) version


      I then started from scratch and did a wipe of the SSD & reinstalled Windows.

      I installed every update from Windows Update EXCEPT for the Intel Graphics Adapter update and made sure all drivers are updated EXCEPT for the VGA driver listed above.

      I then made my restore point, and the restart after applying either driver or Windows Update results in BSOD again.


      From BlueScreenView, I get the following:

      igdkmd64.sys igdkmd64.sys+1906c4 fffff880`048cc000 fffff880`04ce8000 0x0041c000 0x526eddae 10/28/2013 4:57:02 PM    

      I do see that there is a BIOS update available after F10, a UEFI BIOS. I've seen that it is problematic to upgrade to, so I'm waiting on trying that as a last resort.

      GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 (rev. 1.0)

      I'm not sure what else to look at...CPU is listed as supported by the mobo with BIOS F10. Everything seems fine until I try to update the Intel video drivers, so it really doesn't seem like a bad CPU.


      Any other thoughts?


      Thanks all!
