7490 black screen with UHD graphics 620

Hello,

 

I have exactly this same problem as described https://community.intel.com/t5/Graphics/Dell-Latitude-7490-UHD-Graphics-620-midway-driver-installation/m-p/1453659/highlight/true

 

It does not seem to be an isolated problem, as searching on the DELL forums finds similar issues. 

 

I have done the same trouble shooting of fresh installs of windows from both microsoft as well as dell. The computer can run on the basic display adapter, but once intel kicks in and is installed, it crashes.

 

Are there any updates to this problem?

Hello Eric30


Thank you for posing on the Intel Communities. I am sorry that you are experiencing freezes when trying to update your graphics driver.


Based on the thread that you are sharing, if the issue is exactly the same and if you already tried to replace your SSD or hard driver and reinstalled the Operating System, our recommendation is to contact your system manufacturer directly for further troubleshooting or warranty replacements.


In case you want us to do troubleshooting with us, please share the following information:

It turned out to be the RAM. On an off chance, I tried ram from my known good laptop and it booted.

 

It was a surprise to me because:

 

1) the SDD was dead, I did have to replace it. When I put the SDD from the t420 into my known good laptop it wouldn't get past POST.

2) in safe mode, with a new SDD, the t420 had no black screen at all. Only once the it was rebooted with any intel UHD 620 driver installed.

3) the built into BIOS diagnostics gave the RAM a pass.
