Perhaps it is a good idea to check how long the issue started to happen, what has changed since then, and if it happens across different driver versions.
Does the issue happen when any other graphics intensive application is running?
the computer is brand new, Im so aggreviated that i bought another PC ill never do it again. Everytime i use a PC for anything except going online its a complete nightmare. This was the best laptap best buy had and i have a supposedly awesome graphic card that is unusable. It happens when nothing is running
The best suggestion for a system with hybrid graphics is to use the drivers provided by the system manufacturer since they are most likely customized for your system and designed them both to work together.
Please download the latest drivers from the system manufacturer's website, uninstall both graphics drivers, install Intel drivers first, restart your system, and install Nvidia* drivers last. If this does not work, you can try with the latest generic drivers available from Intel and Nvidia* and installed them in the same order indicated before.
Kindly share the DxDiag report in case more assistance is needed. (Press Windows* key + R key, type “dxdiag”, press OK and then click “Save All Information”).
Intel's generic graphics drivers from the Intel Web site do not work on some computers that support Switchable Graphics. It depends on your computer's hardware configuration.
If you encounter problems using the generic driver, Intel recommends reinstalling the latest validated driver from your computer manufacturer for your system
Hello All, Im facing same issue described above. This age old driver crash issue for Intel HD Graphics 4400 in my new Dell Inspiron 5537 laptop.
When I open Photoshop CC 2014 (latest build) - GPUSniffer try to calculate the CLBandwidth of Intel HD 4400 graphics card and the program hangs. Intel HD driver crashes and system message pops up with "Display driver stopped responding and recovered" (disabling Open GL and Graphics Processor in Photoshop). Interesting point is, if I restart my laptop - it all runs well; but after a shut down same situation reappears.
Most Importantly I'm using latest driver from Intel (Version 10.18.14.4080 aka 22.214.171.12480 - dated 05-01-2015).
Is there anyway to get rid of this??
Please check this thread too: Intel HD Graphics 4400 crashing even with the latest driver 126.96.36.19980 when opening Photoshop
Thanks in advance,
Please let me know if you get any solution to your issue by now.
What I fund from my end - restart can fix this temporarily and clearly it's an issue with Intel HD Graphics 4400.
