Intel UHD driver for N5105 processor crash Windows 10 Pro 21H2 system




I have tried to install fresh Windows 10 Pro (21H2) operating system on Celeron N5105 based platform. However as soon as video driver for Intel UHD graphics is installed the whole system stops responding in very few seconds. It suddenly redraws entire display screen with flickering colour changing garbage together with few small rectangular clusters scattered over the screen also changing their pixels colour. The only way out is to power off the system by holding power button. If booted up then in normal mode then it goes into the same state in few seconds while just showing login screen. To regain any stable state I had to boot it into safe mode and disable Intel(R) UHD Graphics Display adapter in Device Manager. I have first tried vendor supplied video driver version but the problem remains exactly the same if newer driver version is installed by Windows update or if I use the latest driver from Intel web site directly. I have also tried to install drivers before or after updating Windows with all patches but having the same outcome.


Please find system configuration details attached.


I would appreciate any help to resolve the issue.

Have you checked for a BIOS update for your motherboard?

Yes, I have checked that BIOS is the latest. However this is a bit difficult to be certain.

On Gigabyte web site here


it shows that first version 1.0 was released on 2021/05/05 described as "BRIX Jasper Lake series BIOS initial release" and then later on version F4 was released on 2021/07/29 described as "BIOS Fixed : Random Boot Failures issus"


System scan report shows in computer section that

BIOS Version/Date:"American Megatrends International, LLC. F4 , 06/05/2021 12:00 AM"


and Motherboard section shows

BIOS:"F4, GBT    - 1072009"


so version seems to be F4 matching the latest but time stamp looks a bit suspicious


Do you think BIOS can actually cause such strange behaviour? Until UHD driver is enabled all the rest looks pretty stable
