On a clean install, with latest driver, my screen goes black momentarily while using Google Chrome.
Event viewer gives the following info:
Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
Event ID 4101
New drivers seem to be crashing a lot (almost daily in my case) did not have this issue with older drivers.
I've done some more testing and still experience the same result even after reinstalling the browser.
The screen goes black momentarily only when using the browser, and if i check event viewer that's when i also see the error code i reported.
This issue happened after doing a clean install anyway, so it was present right from the start.
I've been unable to replicate the issue in Edge, although, I don't use it very much so not sure how fair of a test it is.
The error seems to happen randomly while browsing, so it's not something I can easily replicate. But it does happen at least once a day.
Another thing I have noticed, is that when i disable "contrast enhancement" in the "image enhancement" options, this gets re-enabled automatically when I restart the machine. I then have to disable it again.
OS corruption doesn't really make sense in my case as this happened to me after doing a clean install (not upgrade).
I tried reinstalling the drivers again using the method you previously mentioned, but now i can't open the control panel.
I get the following error (i only have 1 monitor connected to my computer)
"Unable to launch the application. None of the connected displays are using the Intel Graphics Driver."
There seems to be a lot of users complaining they can't open the app either on the download page (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/intel-graphics-control-panel/9ndlclmmtmrc?activetab=pivot%3Aovervi...)
Is there any way to fix this issue?
I did download the app from the Microsoft store but still experienced the same error when i tried to launch it.
Not sure why it's happening now, but there are lots of comments on the app store for the control panel app with users reporting similar issues. So you might want to take a look at that.
What I have done for now is to uninstall the drivers and app, and let Windows install the Intel driver automatically.
I haven't had any issues with the driver crashing, or opening the control panel. So the issue does seem to be driver related somehow. I'm also not having the issue of any settings resetting after reboot.
I'm happy for now as all is working properly. Thanks for looking into this.
