I am trying to play a game called Arma 3 and every time i manage to play for about 5 -10 mins before it comes up with this error message "Application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware" I know its not me having an intel hd 4000 as my brother can play this game perfectly (with the same laptop) on windows 8.1

I am using : Intel hd 4000 graphics card

Arma 3 issues are still under investigation since driver version 4222. Any updates will be posted on the driver release notes.

I will give you my DxDiag report to see if anyone will be able to help me because this issue is starting to get on my nerves. The game worked fine on windows 8.1

You could download the driver release notes on the same page you find the latest video drivers: See an example picture below:

Again, this matter has been escalated and this is under investigation and no ETA is available yet.

I know your going to say "We have already discussed this" but do you think the next arma 3 update will fix a couple of problems ?

I do not have information about future fixes for new drivers updates. Issues fixed are published on the driver release notes.

I think i may have found a fix but basically i had to change something with the arma 3 settings so that it dosent have a high cpu and disk usage, because before it was %100 usage on the disk so i messed around with the settings and i think it works . for now anyways

The only way would be enabling Speed Step functionality, this will lower processor frequency to save power dynamically. You need to check BIOS settings.

As for disk usage, please consult with your SSD or hard drive maker.
