    Display driver stopped responding and has recovered Error with Iris 5100


      Is there anything i can do other than wait for an new driver to be released? Is there a beta driver that I can try to see if it fixes the problem?

      I just found a slightly newer driver

      64bit - win64_15407.4279.exe

      but the problem remains exactly the same as before 3 restarts of the driver and then the driver is locked out


      The take from other support websites puts the blame squarely on the Iris driver so I asked once more are Beta version that fix this problem available to test yet?

      I am happy to test and I have a separate hard drive with a bog standard clean install of windows 10 64 that I can use for tests. This is an Apple MacMini 7,1 Computer To the highest spec currently offered by Apple

            The problem was caused by microsoft and the way it uploaded and updated the win 8.1 installed and working to Windows 10-64 .

            they replaced the iris graphics driver provided by the bootcamp installation thumb ( that you create to get it all working) which was

            3345 with one in the 4000 series... And any attempt to fix the problem in Windows points you to the intell web site wher that driver

            gets updated to the current driver (in this case iris 4279) the fix such as it is requires that a fresh copy of 3345 be obtained by making

            a new thumb drive and running the setup in the second of the the two intell marked folders in it to cause the needed reversion.

            this is still not a prefect solution but it does allow many programs to run that were puting up the errors delineated in the first post in this

            tthread.... It is clear that apple needs to update the files in the thumb drive that they have the user create with bootcamp assistant to reflect

            wwhat is needed by Windows 10. I expect when they get today's release of OS X 11.11.x sorted and rinning smoothly that they will return

            their attention to the needed changes to Bootcamp for Windows 10

            I hope this thread will help any others looking for a way around this problem
