How To Fix/Ressolve Abnormal Display After Intel(R) HD Graphics installation..???

Without GMA driver, my PC displays smooth(ish), huge blurred fonts, & it's out of focus (since no GMA Driver installed), resolution is reduced, windows so BIG with little tiles in them, the whole thing hurts my eyes.

 

So after installation of a GMA driver, everything is smooth, vibrant, colorful, sharp, & suddenly these horizontal (Green, Yellow & Red - mostly Green) lines appear & disappear (flashing if I may) over & over. It's almost as though I am seeing the raw graphic data & how these graphics are made.

 

Like there are boxes on the login screen where time lies, weird diagonal lines on the GMA Properties window, & transparent images etc. have these dots on the dark/transparent/translucent areas etc., until I open apps like VLC Player, Movies & TV, Windows Media Player, & online players like YouTube, but only in full screen. It diesappears when in full screen even when I'm gaming, but sometimes it flashes here & there with the game graphics torn (or with black dots & other discoloring).

 

This could just be my hardware but it seizes to exist without driver so could be it, only there is no update anywhere for it. I don't know what is going on. Anyone with an idea?

 

My Device Specs:

ThinkPad Edge 15/E50

Genuine Intel

Windows 10 Pro 64bit

1809 Build 17763.379

Intel Core i5-560M @ 2.66 GHz

Intel HD Graphics 8.15.10.2990/2993 (26.Nov.2012/3)

SK Hynix 4096 MB (DDR3-1600) - SN:0F5799E6 PN:HMT351S6CFR8C-PB RAM

Your processor and graphics are not supported on Windows 10.

 

You need to upgrade to a new(er) laptop/desktop.

Al.Hill. thanks for the reply.

Maybe, could be.

Even on Windows 8/8.1, same arbnormal display. But on Windows 7, this all goes away when I disable Desktop composition/Windows Aero.

Besides, I had not such a problem before for about a year.

Your processor and graphics are from 2010, and long out of support.

For windows 10, this is simply no support.

 

Time to upgrade/replace what you have.
