Please try with the latest graphics version Download Intel® Graphics Driver for Windows® 10 [15.40][4th Gen], you can install the driver using the following method Desktop graphics drivers — How to Manually Install a Driver in Microsoft Windows 8* or Windows 8.1*.
Let me know your findings,
Thanks for this, however it hasn't made any difference, the black text still looks fuzzy and my pictures all look a bit too bright and the colours un-natural.
When I looked at the Driver Details in Device Manager it said the driver was version - 22.214.171.12400 not 126.96.36.199.4300 which is what I downloaded?
Any other suggestions most welcome
Please fill out the following form Default level information for reporting Graphics issues and post it here, make sure to follow closely all the instructions on the post so we can replicate the issue.
Now, when it comes to the driver version, these are often referred to by either build number or driver version; in your case there is no difference between the two. The last four digits of the downloaded driver will indicate if it is the same driver posted it in our site which is .4300, the rest of numbers are just for internal reference.
For more driver build information, please visit Graphics Drivers — Understanding The Intel® Graphics Driver Version Number.
form completed as you suggested.
I have inserted 6 screen shots of info required.
I have some other data files but cannot see how to attached them to the post.
I will have another look.
Answers (N/A if not applicable)
Provide a detailed description of the issue
I just bought a new PC i5 4460 using the Intel 4600 graphics and Windows 10, Quite frankly the picture on the monitor is crap! The text is fuzzy and photos are nowhere near sharp enough, certainly not HD.
I have read many many many web pages with people having this issue, but none of the solutions (mostly around changing settings) works for me. My previous PC used a Radeon graphics card (brilliant quality and no issues), am I expecting too much of the Intel 4600 to produce the same quality?
Does it fail every single time, or only sometimes?
If you can offer a % rate please do.
All the time
Brand and Model of the system.
Zoostorm (UK brand) – i5 4460
Hybrid or switchable graphics system?
ie Does it have AMD or NV graphics too?
Only has the Intel 4600 graphics unit
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)
I am using a Digimate (DGM) TV screen as my monitor
Model – ETV-2493WHC
How much memory [RAM] in the system (see note2 below).
Provide any other hardware needed to replicate the issue.
ie: Cables&brand, cable type [vga, hdmi, DP, etc], dock, dongles/adapters, etc
HDMI (TV end) to DVI (PC end)
Hardware Stepping (see note1 below).
Operating System version (see note2 below).
VBIOS (video BIOS) version. This can be found in “information page” of CUI (right click on Desktop and select “Graphics Properties”.
Graphics Driver version; for both integrated Intel and 3rd party vendors (see note2 below).
See screen shots
SW or Apps version used to replicate the issue.
Single display, clone, or extended (see note2 below).
Single display monitor
Display resolution & refresh rate setting of each display (see note2 below).
AC or DC mode, i.e. is power cable plugged in or not?
Plugged in AC
How to repro
Please provide steps to replicate the issue. These steps are very crucial to finding the root cause and fix.
A screenshot to illustrate the issue is a huge plus. A video of the failure is even better! Attach to the post or provide the YouTube link.
I noticed from the screen shots you attached that you're missing the driver for your monitor;
Have you tried installing it from the monitor manufacturer?
Have you tried with a different monitor?
Have you tried with a different cable?
Do you have the Clear Type feature on? If you need more information about this you can visit Turn off or on Clear Type Text in Windows 10.

Let me know if that helps.
My monitor is a TV and there is no specific driver, I have checked the manufacturer's website, hence it using the generic driver. This worked fine on my old PC.
I am hopefully trying a different (PC not TV) monitor today with a different cable.
I have tried CLEARTYPE, it doesn't make any difference.
Will let you know how I get on with a different monitor.
I tried a different monitor yesterday, a specific PC monitor not a TV (like the one I am currently using).
The clarity was certainly better, although not perfect, and the monitor was much more versatile than the TV in being able to change light, contrast, colour settings.
After the test we concluded that there are probably two things going on ...
1. the NVIDIA graphics card in my previous PC is a higher quality than the Intel 4600 and more "flexible" in how it works with the TV
2. To get the best out of the Intel card I will need a PC monitor not a generic TV
Any thoughts you have on this or if you have found anything else would be most welcome.

-Black levels will need to be adjusted. TV levels are 16-235, PC levels are 0-255. They will look the same if both are set the same. If you set your computer to TV levels on a display that is PC, you get washed out blacks. If you set PC levels on a display set for TV you get crushed blacks. One of the advanced options will let you specify whether to output TV or PC levels to the display.
-TV is probably set for chroma 4:2:2. You need chroma 4:4:4 for best text clarity and colour. Research how to do this, you likely need to rename the HDMI input on your tv to PC to make it change the chroma to 4:4:4. Using 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 will always be fuzzier text. You do this renaming on the TV not the computer.
-Text fuzziness could also be a rendering issue. Windows 10 uses greyscale subpixel antialiasing. This is different from Windows 7 with IE8 (changed with IE9 and up) which used RGB subpixel antialiasing.
Thanks for the advice, but my TV doesn't have the facility (as far as I am aware) to make the very "low level" changes that you have suggested.
I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that I am expecting too much of the Intel graphics card when compared to the NVIDIA one that is in my old PC (Windows 7), however reading other's comments on the net I don't think that Windows 10 helps. On my old PC I just plugged in the TV and it was picture perfect without any adjustment required.
I have lost count of the hours (wasted) trying to get a good quality picture with the new PC, Intel graphics and Windows 10.
