HD 520 aero problem after update

Hi

 

i've recently updated the graphics driver thru Dell's SupportAssist program, currently using 21.20.16.4821 on Windows 7.

 

After the update the aero effects became unavailable, no way to turn on.

 

Any advice how to solve this, do i need to revert back to older driver?

 

Thanks

Hello Wanner

 

your proposed method is not available. Troubleshooting gives result saying that video card is not supporting WDDM, so Aero is not available.

 

If i would uninstall the current driver, then which one should is install again? Reason i'm asking as with the previous one (not sure which version was it), Aero was working fine, while with the newest i have problem as described.

 

Thanks

Hello GSzab2, Thank you for your response. It is recommended to always install the latest one provided by your system manufacturer. This is because we supply generic versions of graphics drivers for general purposes. Computer manufacturers can change the features, incorporate customization, or make other changes to the graphics driver software or software packaging. If you still want to try with our latest driver then please refer to the link below, you can find the latest graphics driver for your controller with Windows* 7: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27360/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-45-?product=883...

Hello GSzab2, If you are still having the issue reported, please review this information: A. Verify that your edition of Windows Vista supports Windows Aero. The following editions of Windows Vista support Windows Aero: Windows 7 (All versions) Windows Vista Ultimate Windows Vista Home Premium Windows Vista Enterprise Windows Vista Business To check your Windows Vista edition, click Start and Welcome Center. The edition is listed at the top of the window. B. Your current power plan may be set so that Windows turns off transparency automatically. Change it to the Balanced power plan. Click Start. Click Control Panel. Click Power Options (or click Classic View and then Power Options). Select Balanced. C. Roll back the driver: Open Device Manager. In Device Manager, locate the display adapter. Right-click on the device's name and choose Properties. Click the Driver tab Click the Roll Back Driver button. Wanner G. Intel Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation

Hello Wanner

 

after uninstalling everything i've tried with Intel's latest driver, it was not helping. Then uninstalled again, removed all drivers which were listed and then installed Dell's latest which finally solved the case.
