I have a laptop. I updated to Intel Graphics Driver 15.46.05.4771 yesterday. After the updated, I noticed that after opening the laptop after putting it on sleep, the screen would flicker with black and grey and nothing would be displayed. Nothing works and the screen is stuck in this loop. Eventually, I had to shut down the laptop using laptop power button. Reinstalled the drivers, didn't work. This has never happened before. I rolled back to previous installed version ie 18.104.22.16878. and the issue disappeared.
So probably there are some issues in these drivers. Please fix it.
My laptop specs
Intel i7 6th gen 6500U @ 2.5ghz
8GB ram , 2GB Nvidia 940m
Windows 10 Home Single Language 64 Bit (Latest updates)
I understand you installed latest graphics driver we have on our website and since then screen flickers after waking up from sleep mode.
Let me apologize for any inconvenience this issue may be causing to you.
Since your computer comes with two video cards then there is a special graphics driver that needs to be installed. This graphics driver is provided by the laptop manufacturer only. The computer manufacturer customizes our graphics drivers in order to make both video cards work fine with each other. We cannot guarantee our generic graphics drivers will be able to work fine on every OEM system.
What I can recommend is to keep using the graphics driver 22.214.171.12478 since it is the one that works fine in your computer.

Let me know if you have or not any other inquiry.
Well since I have nvidia graphics so this isn't big deal for me. I have habit of keeping everything updated that's why I do so. HP stopped providing updates way back for the intel driver that's why I download driver from intel website and they worked fine well except for this version. But people who don't have dedicated graphics may get fed up with this. I just wanted to let you know about this issue. Other than, that everything else works fine in that update.
Thanks for the feedback you are providing to us. I am glad to hear the computer is working fine with graphics driver 126.96.36.19978.
I am having the exact same issue, except I can not get into a visible screen that will allow me to roll back the driver to the previous version. My Windows 10 system is set to fast boot and even when I power down by holding the power button, it still boots to a gray backlit screen. Any suggestions on how I can roll back the driver?
Thank you for joining the thread.

I was actually able to get my system to properly hard reboot and boot on my 2nd graphics card allowing me to roll back my driver to the previous version. So I am all set
actually, this is my case, i only have integrated graphics and i suffer this issue, even with 4678 version driver... i found a little workaround for this issue, when wake up the laptop, wait until the screen goes off and then press any key, the screen goes back...
i hope this issue will be resolve in a future release of driver updates
