I am having a problem with SGX mainboard not letting me watch UHD HD content on my 4K monitor. Everything in my computer is HDCP ready. In order for me to watch UHD HD content I have to connect the monitor to my mainboard with the HDMI 2.0 cable in order to utilize the UHD 630 Graphics driver. According to the Cyberlink UHD HD Advisor the only thing left is the SGK Mainbord/CPU shows up RED. I downloaded and installed the Intel SGX SDK for windows Ver. 18.104.22.168299 and latest version of Intel Management Engine Driver ver. 22.214.171.12477 They both show up in device manager. In my BIOS I have SGX Enabled with 128mb of Memory allocated to start-up. I have 16gb of system memory with an ASROCK Z370 mainboard and an Intel i3-8350k cpu. I was going over the details of the Management engine driver and my chipset and cpu are not on the support list. From what I could find on the intel web site about the Management Engine is that it only supports up to Kaby lake processors. I have a Coffee Lake processor. Both my cpu and mainboard are series 300.
Thank you for joining the community.
I see that you are having problems with your system resolution, allow me to help with your inquiries.
I would like to verify with you the behavior that you are having, on your system configuration once the HDMI® cable is connected to the HDMI® port on the motherboard you are able to get the 4K resolution but once the same HDMI® cable is connected to the discrete graphics you are not able to get the 4K resolution. Am I correct?
If it is possible please provide me with the Intel® graphics report following these steps:
Thank you for your response.
The monitor is an LG24UD58 display. It has 2 x HDMI and 1 x Display Port Outputs. I use the HDMI connected to my mainboard to watch UHD HD 4K movies which do not play. I currently use the disply port cable connected to my GTX1050 Ti graphics card. The resolution is 3840 x 2160 @60 Hz. This is the native resulution and it is always set to this. I have no 4K content I can share with you unless I mail you a 4K disc. This is the only 4K content I own. I do not stream 4K content. According to the Cyberlink UHD HD advisor everything checks out fine for HDCP except for the Mainboard/CPU. Maybe I will try this. I am thinking about re-installing windows 10 64bit and format the boot drive this way I will start with a fresh install. Then the very first thing I will do is install the Intel UHD Graphics 630 driver then the latest Nvidia graphics driver then the Intel Management Engine Driver or the Intel SGX SDK driver and I will enable SGX in BIOS and allocate 128mb of ram. Do suggest a different order?
Thank you for your response.
I would appreciate the clean installation of the operating system (OS); I would also recommend removing the NVIDIA® graphics card, and then complete the installation of the OS and the necessary drivers on the system of possible the latest Intel® graphics driver for your system (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27894/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-10?product=126790 https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27894/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-10?product=126790) and test the 4K video, once this is complete please provide me with the output.
Sorry, I have not had a chance yet. I have not forgotten. By the way, do you suggest which order I should install the drivers after I format the boot drive? I will remove the graphics card as you suggested. Thanks
Thank you for your response.
I would recommend installing the Intel® management engine driver, then the Intel® SGX driver and then graphics driver (refer to the motherboard drivers to install them); you could also test the generic Intel graphics driver version for your Intel® UHD Graphics 630 graphics controller (https://downloadmirror.intel.com/27894/a08/win64_126.96.36.19929.zip https://downloadmirror.intel.com/27894/a08/win64_188.8.131.5229.zip), to install this driver follow manual installation of the driver (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005629/graphics-drivers.html https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005629/graphics-drivers.html).
Hello, last evening I did a complete fresh install of Windows 10 64bit. I removed the graphics card as you suggested. Connected the 4K monitor to the mainboard with the HDMI cable. I left the bios settings unchanged with SGX enabled and 128MB of ram allocated to start-up. I changed the boot sequence to read from the DVD. I formatted the boot drive and installed the OS onto this drive. Next I installed the SGX SDK driver then the Intel Management Engine driver then the Intel UHD 630 Graphics driver for my OS. Next I installed the LAN driver and turned on my internet then installed the Cyberlink UHD Blu-Ray Advisor. When I ran the advisor everything came up green. (To my surprise) I was able to watch a 4K movie (Game of Thrones) on my 4K monitor for the very first time. WOW. I guess something wasn't working right because now everything is working fine.
In recent versions of Windows 10 the Intel SGX driver is normally installed through Windows Update to where you generally will run into issues trying to install the Intel SGX Driver stating an error similar to "the AESM service is already installed".
When you did a complete fresh install of Windows 10, what did you use to perform the installation? From it post it looks like the Windows installer DVD? Would you be able to check which release of Windows 10 that disk installs? Common ones are listed here:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/windows-10/release-information Windows 10 release information
but include 1803, 1709, 1703, etc.
Apologies for the inquiry but there are a good number of consumers out there having the same issues that you were experiencing and we're just trying to narrow down the exact formula for getting this to work; more specifically what is causing it to break. Thanks for the assist.
Thanks @Timewarpone. In Device Manager under Software Components, when you right click the Intel Software Guard Extensions device and click on Properties, which Driver Version is it showing?
If it is showing 2.0X+, are you still able to play UHD Blu-rays?
You are on Windows 10 release 1803, but after your fresh install of Windows after testing PowerDVD did you wind up running Windows Updates that might have upgraded you to 1803? I'm just trying to see if you tested PowerDVD on a release of Windows 10 earlier than 1803 before updates were applied(common scenario we're running into).
Thanks again for the help.
The driver ver. shown is 2.0x + and I am still able to play a 4K movie with Power DVD 17. I believe windows updates are automatic in Win 10. In previous versions of windows like 7 i had updates turned off until I was done installing all my drivers and programs then I turned on updates. I didn't see that option after installing Win 10. I have no idea what version I started with or if it was updated automatically.
Awesome, that's exactly the information I needed. Thanks again for the info, this should greatly help in troubleshooting issues with trying this same process on an EVGA Z370 Classified K board.
