I have uninstalled the hd driver and i get display with poor resolution. It then updates automatically to 4229 driver update. The display works fine until you reboot. This knocks out the display again and you have to hook up to a hdmi device and start the uninstall process again. I have found that setting close lid action to hibernate to be the only way of keeping the display active. So I am unable to restart my laptop if not near a hdmi device. Windows assessed my computer and said it was compatible to upgrade, this would suggest it isn't?
UPDATE: All resolved, having found a friend with an acer on hd3000 graphics working happily, I revisited the steps i had taken and realised the only thing i had not done was check for a bios update. I found this to be causing the problem. Bios updated and all is well
Thank you for your feedback. I am glad the system is working properly.
