Could you please provide us with the following:
- Driver version installed. Go to Device Manger> Display adapters> Intel(R) HD Graphics right click on Properties and then go to Driver, you will be able to see the version installed.
- Do you know what is the task/activity that triggers the issue?
- Operating system.
- Have you contacted your computer manufacturer in regard to this matter? It's possible that your computer requires a customized driver that it might provide a fix for issue like this one.
Sorry, I was away for a few days.
It is a brand new laptop with Windows 10, the driver information is:
Intel (R) HD Graphics 520
It does not seem to be triggered by anything, I can be typing and all of a sudden it happens.
Thank you Amy,
I tried and while installing I got this message and the installation aborted:
"The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer."
Any other suggestions?
PS: It just crashed again as I was typing
I bought this new laptop and at least once, usually more times a day the graphic driver crashes and recovers again. It can be quite interrupting and should not happen in a new laptop.
Who is the Manufacturer of the Motherboard? Better yet, download from Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit, for software, hardware and security configuration information on your computer.… Version 8.5c and install and run it.
Similar to what I just did.
Also you can download from : Intel® Driver Update Utility After you download it, right-click and click Run as administrator. This utility will give you the exact upgrades you need.
Note: You need 8 GBs of Ram or more to run Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit without crashing.
Make sure that Automatically restart is not checked, under System Failure. This will allow you to take a Digital Picture of the Screen with a Digital Camera and attach the image as a Jpeg file.
The computer that I am on with Intel On-board Graphics on the motherboard does not crash. I always need to uninstall the Graphics, every time I receive a new Microsoft Board, in order to remove Windows.old from the File System. I use Display Graphics Uninstaller from WagnardMobile. I was told about this tool by Asus Technical Support.
Here is an example of a Blue Screen, from a computer with Nvidia Graphics.
If you have an HD Camera, as I do, the file size may be too large. In this case, view it on your computer, and take a PrtScrn Snapshot and save it in Paint as a Jpeg File. That is what I needed to do.
This will help Intel to pinpoint the problem.
Sunny2000, that message indicates that your computer manufacturer does not allow the installation of generic Intel video drives. You are required to install drivers from your computer manufacturer, however, you may try forcing the installation of Intel generic drivers by performing manual procedure, see here for instructions: How to Manually Install a Driver in Microsoft Windows 8* or Windows.... these instructions should work ok on Windows® 10.
Amy, that link get's me to a page that says for Windows 8, I have Windows 10?
The reason that you can't install the Intel's Graphics Driver for Windows 10, is that you upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 with the drivers from Windows 8.1 still installed. Those drivers need to be removed, using the Tool I previously mentioned from WagnardMobile. Then install the Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10. Download the Graphic Driver for Windows 10, prior to removing the current drivers using Windows Safe Mode.
Use msconfig to go into Safe Mode, in order to run Display Driver Uninstaller. Don't make the boot settings permanent.
Create a sub-folder of the Folder that you download Display Driver Uninstaller in. Call it DDU, Then simply Unzip the program into the folder. This will help it organized and help you find it in Safe Mode.
After you are in Safe Mode and before you run Display Driver Uninstaller, made sure that Safe boot, isn't still checked. If it is uncheck it. Click Apply then OK. Exit without restarting the computer, at this time. Display Driver Uninstaller restarts the computer automatically, otherwise, you will get a Black Screen.
After restarting the computer, install the Windows 10 Intel Graphics Drivers. Intel's Windows 10 Graphic Drivers do not remove Windows 8.1 Graphic Drivers.
But I did not upgrade to from Windows 8 to Windows 10, I bought the laptop with Windows 10 installed. It was a brand new laptop. Now I am confused.
It does not hurt to use the Display Driver Uninstaller and reinstall the Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10 from this operating system. Especially if you use a program like Acronis True Image.If it works great, if it doesn't, just restore the Image. You might have purchased the Laptop with Windows 10 installed, but the Manufacturer, may have installed the wrong version of the Intel Graphics.
Ok, I've done it all. It is still crashing :-(
