Iris Xe - Event 4101 - Igfxn stopped responding



I've a Dell 5320 laptop (11th gen Intel i5, Iris Xe, 16GB RAM) which has the latest W10 updates (all checked today), also latest Dell drivers and BIOS and the latest Intel provided drivers (though the same issue happens on OEM display drivers).

My issue is that a cycling game I play "Zwift" ( will consistently experience a crash, which could be 5 minutes in to riding, or 1.5hrs. The result is always the same with Event 4101 being reported and the Intel driver crashing. At the time the crash happens my screen will go black and 5 seconds later I can again see the display - the issue is that this process puts Zwift in an unrecoverable state and therefore I "lose" the effort and ride information which is troubling.

I can run Zwift on my Surface Pro 6 (i5, Intel 620 HD) without any stability issues at all. Same drivers, same Zwift version, same version of Windows 10.

How do I report this and is the Iris Xe driver really in such a poor state of maturation that I should expect this? Happy to provide logs if it helps!

I'm not Jahoker, but I have this same issue since months and every day. Maybe since upgraded to windows 11. See attachments.


Second issue is damaged preview thumbnails from taskbar. See



I have run into the same trouble on a Lenovo Thinkpad 12th gen Intel chipset (i7-1255U).  I have an open case with Intel about this although it is unclear that is going to lead to a resolution. Not sure whether either of the other posters found a resolution for this trouble.
