    Intel Driver stops working during video playback...

    petasis

      Hi all,

       

      I have recently upgraded my HTPC from an AMD 905e to an i3-4360, and it is not usable any more as an HTPC: when I am watching any video, the driver crashes, windows 8.1 restarts the driver, and the player just freezes or crashes. This happens in any video, with any player. I have tried windows media player, media player classic HD & XBMC.

       

      The main board is an H97M-G43 from MSI. I have contacted MSI, but anything they asked me to do didn't resolve the issue.

      I have reinstalled windows, I have updated the BIOS, I have used drivers from intel site & their site (even the beta one), I have reseted the bios by shorting the board pins and run the system with BIOS defaults, nothing helped. The entries in the event log are:

       

      "Το πρόγραμμα οδήγησης οθόνης igfx σταμάτησε να ανταποκρίνεται και ανακτήθηκε με επιτυχία."

      (Rough translation: The display driver igfx stopped responding and was successfully recovered.)

       

      Is there a solution to this?

      I am using driver 10.18.10.3621, on windows 8.1 pro 64 bit.
