    Most Recent Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver won't work with Windows 10


      I have a computer with four monitors. Two are powered by an AMD Radeon HD 7700 card and the other two are powered by my on-board Intel HD Graphics 4000. When I updated to Windows 10, the two AMD monitors came on but the Intel ones were black.


      I eventually got the Intel monitors to work using the Win 7/8 driver provided by the manufacturer of the Motherboard (ASUS P8Z77-V LK). According to Windows Device Manager, the driver is version, which I believe is an older version of the Intel driver for Win 7/8.


      Since then, I've tried everything possible to update the driver but nothing works. Windows update doesn't work. It says there is an updated driver available but it can't install it. It shows the following error.


      " Intel Corporation driver update for Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 - Error 0x800f0203"


      I tried going to the downloaded update in the Windows folder (C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\Install) and right clicking on the .inf file to install it that way. I got BSODs.


      I tried uninstalling the driver (and it's software) using the device manager and then updating it using the same process. This results in BSODs.


      The intel driver update software doesn't work. It throws an error and says it is quiting setup.


      No matter what I do, I'm forced to revert back to version


      An Internet search reveals a few others reporting the same problem. Windows 10 Pro Graphics 4000 - Error 0x800f0203 - Microsoft Community


      Can anyone possibly help with this problem? Should I just wait for an updated driver or is there something else to try?

            Thanks so much for posting that link. I'll do my best to provide the information you need so you can investigate this issue. My answers are below and I've attached the files requested in the notes. I used the table in the link even though the text is centered (couldn't figure out how to change it and I tried a lot of things).





            Answers (N/A if not applicable)


            Provide a detailed description of the issue AND 'does it fail every single time, or only sometimes?' If you can offer a % rate please do.

            I cannot update the driver for my Intel HD Graphics 4000 iGPU. It is stuck on version, which is the driver provided by the manufacturer of the motherboard.


            The update fails 100% of the time. It has never successfully updated regardless of the many ways I've tried - e.g., Windows Update, Device Manager (the update driver option with the driver saved on my harddrive), right clicking the *.inf file in the Windows folder (C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\Install), downloading the Intel driver *.exe file from Intel's website (https://goo.gl/fCEpJ4), etc.

            The more gentle methods such as Windows update and using the driver *.exe file from Intel fail to update - e.g., Windows update says "Intel Corporation driver update for Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 - Error 0x800f0203." The less gentle methods such as updating the driver with Device Manager produce multiple BSODs until finally Windows lets me boot into Safe Mode where I can delete the driver.

            One thing to note is that Windows 10 has never recognized the HD Graphics 4000 iGPU on its own. For example, it should recognize it and install some basic driver but it has never done that. Instead, if I delete the driver, it just shows up as a generic video display device in Device Manager. The only way I can get it to work is to go into Device Manager and install the old driver ( That is the only way Windows will recognize it.

            One more thing to note is that I tried installing the Win 8.1 driver just to see what happens and it does the same thing - BSODs (I have to do this through Device Manager). For some reason, the Win 7/8 driver works but the Win 8.1/10 drivers don't.

            Hardware (HW)

            Brand and Model of the system.

            Custom. The motherboard is an ASUS P8Z77-V LK and the CPU is an Intel Core i5-3570K at 3.40GHz.

            Hybrid or switchable graphics system? ie Does it have AMD or NV graphics too?

            It also has an AMD Radeon HD 7700 video card. I have a four monitor setup. The Intel iGPU runs two of the monitors and the Radeon runs the other two.

            Make and model of any Displays that are used to see the issue (see note2 below).

            LFP = Local Flat Panel (Laptop panel)

            EFP = External Flat Panel (Monitor you plug in)

            All four monitors are EFP BenQ GW2750H monitors.

            How much memory [RAM] in the system (see note2 below).

            16 GB of ram

            Provide any other hardware needed to replicate the issue.

            ie: Cables&brand, cable type [vga, hdmi, DP, etc], dock, dongles/adapters, etc

            None that I know of

            Hardware Stepping (see note1 below).

            The screenshot requested in Note1 below is attached

            Software (SW)

            Operating System version (see note2 below).

            Windows 10 64-bit

            VBIOS (video BIOS) version. This can be found in “information page” of CUI (right click on Desktop and select “Graphics Properties”.

            Video BIOS is 2143.0

            Graphics Driver version; for both integrated Intel and 3rd party vendors (see note2 below).

            I think this is in the files I provided as part of Note 2, but I'll repeat it below.

            Intel HD Graphics 4000 iGPU:

            AMD Radeon HD 7700: 15.200.1062.1003

            SW/Apps version used to replicate the issue.

            No software needed to replicate the issue


            Single display, clone, or extended (see note2 below).

            Extended display with four monitors. I also provided the files requested in Note 2.

            Display resolution & refresh rate setting of each display (see note2 below).

            I think this is in the files I provided in response to Note 2.

            AC or DC mode, i.e. is power cable plugged in or not?

            AC. Each monitor has its own power cable.

            How to repro

            Please provide steps to replicate the issue.  Thesesteps are very crucial to finding the root cause and fix.

            A screenshot to illustrate the issue is a huge plus. Avideo of the failure is even better! Attach to the post or provide the YouTube link.








            Method 1. In Windows 10 go to Windows Update. It will say there is an update to the Intel driver. Try to install it and it will say there is an error.

            Method 2. Download *.zip file from Intel's driver webpage (https://goo.gl/fCEpJ4 file name: win64_153338.zip); unzip the file and make note of where it is located; open device manager and select the Intel HD Graphics 4000 display driver (this is assuming you already have the old driver installed; if you don't then select the unkown video display device); manually update the driver using the downloaded driver; while the driver is installing Win 10 will flash a BSOD and attempt to restart which will cause another BSOD; this will happen three or so times until Win 10 gives you some trouble shooting options; boot into safe mode and delete the driver.

              I have an ASUS P8Z77-M PRO motherboard with an i7-3770 processor. I have the EXACT same results when trying to install the various drivers. Differences in my system are only 2 monitors with no other graphics controller. I couldn't have described this issue better.

              • 4. Re: Most Recent Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver won't work with Windows 10

                I did a clean install of Windows 10 and it fixed the issue. I am now running the latest driver and everything appears to work well.

                  dblagent - what driver do you have now?  What level was provided in the clean install of win 10?  Have you tried to update in any way?  Thanks.

                  • 6. Re: Most Recent Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver won't work with Windows 10

                    My Intel HD Graphics 4000 is currently running driver, which is the most recent one according to Windows Update. I did a clean install of Windows from a USB drive (link to instructions: Windows 10 Forums). After the install, I installed all the Windows Updates and that was it.


                    I tried everything imaginable short of a clean install and nothing worked.
