Intel HD 630 vs DirectX 11

I have my drivers all updated and I check often for new ones. My Computer is maybe two months old its got:

Just to get all of that out of the way so people know exactly what I am running and the exact model of computer. (All stock nothing changed)

I have been testing graphics cards. More specifically Integrated graphics cards.

I have tested games like, League of Legends, Rust, Civilzation V, Empryrion Galactic Survival, Sims 4, and a lot more to see how the Intel HD 630 handles them.

To my surprise with a change to the amount of ram dedicated to the card it has been doing pretty well.

Now here is the question.

I recently booted up Space Engineers.

A game built on DirectX 11

I can load up the main menu. I can even get in game for about 10 seconds and after that black screen that never goes away until the program is closed.

What is interesting about it is only part of the interface goes away in game indicating a graphics glitch.

To rule out it being the game I jumped over to my Nvidia GTX 1050 on my other computer and it loaded up and roared just fine... to be expected obviously.

Both computers updated to the same version of Windows 10.

Both computers running the same exact version of the game downloaded on steam.

So far between my friends and I we have tested the game on 5 different computers and only I with Intel HD 630 have the black screen problem.

We have went everywhere from AMD to Nvidia and back.. we are kinda tech nerds.

So any idea's?

I have seen graphics glitches before but nothing like this. It is like it wants to render a little for a small amount of time and then it just picks what it doesnt want to render anymore and blacks it out.
