I have run Windows 7 on this computer for a few years now, but the problem is that I have never been able to upgrade the Intel HD Graphics 3000 drivers to a newer version than the one that was included when I first bought the computer.
Yesterday, I upgraded the computer to Windows 10 and here's an annoying thing, since Windows 10 automatically updates ALL drivers. In Windows 7 I never upgraded the Intel HD Graphics 3000 drivers, since it made the computer crash. During the switch to Windows 10, the same thing happened.
The computer rebooted with the following error:
Since I'm not that much of a newbie, I finally managed, through safe mode with network capability, to delete the updated Intel HD Graphics 3000 drivers and replace them with the older version.
It's worth mentioning that I of course have downloaded the absolutely latest drivers for my processor from Intels website and tried to update the computer, but then I get the error message (kmode) above and the computer goes into a reboot loop.
Currently, I don't have any drivers for Inte HD Graphics 3000 installed. The version I believe I could install, that came with the computer, is:
Driver Revision: 18.104.22.1682.
April 20, 2011
I just don't believe I should still go with drivers from 2011... It's just, not right...
Now, I have two questions:
1. What could be the problem and how do I fix it?
2. Is there a known version that is NEWER than the one I have (from April 2011) that I can download and that should work?
I'd be happy to supply more information that could be needed to solve this.
