    Brand new build - Intel HD 4600 driver keeps crashing and recovering! aargh!


      As I see others are experiencing, I am suffering from constant crashing and recovering of intel HD 4600 integrated graphics on a new build and it is driving me insane. Any help towards a fix would be greatly appreciated!


      Tried the usual stuff, uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, rolling back drivers, updating drivers, updating BIOS, downloading MSI live update client to apply display drivers for me, installing from the CD that came with the mobo... I'm running out of ideas. Doesnt appear to be anything funny happening with RAM or CPU locking up. Anything video related seems to trigger it ie. youtube, playing a video in VLC etc. tried enabling and disabling hardware acceleration in flash to no avail. All windows updates are applied and current.
