Black screen after instaling intel hd graphics

Hey Intel team.
I have a problem with my desktop computer and I haven't found a solution for two months, which is: when activating the intel hd graphiqus driver. The screen goes black. Note that I do not have an external graphics card. And I re-installed the driver several times from the Intel website.
I also re-installed Windows several times and the same problem.
I also lost the sound in the computer also and I tried all the solutions on the internet to no avail.
My computer: i3 2120 windows 10 pro 22h2
and motherboard: Asrock h61
thanks in advance intel team
please reply.

Your processor (and its graphics) is not supported by Windows 10:


There is no driver for your graphics for Windows 10, so you cannot be installing a driver for your graphics from the Intel site.

Al is correct. Intel does not support Windows 10 on processors this old. The only graphics driver that supports your processor is the compatibility driver provided by Microsoft. It should be automatically installed when Windows is installed. Any other driver that you attempt to use is going to cause problems (as you have seen). At the end of the day, the Microsoft-provided driver is going to cause you issues as well. If has many known issues and shortcomings. 

Sorry, but this is reality.
