pedro11, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.

In order for us to provide the most accurate assistance on this scenario, we just wanted to confirm a few details about your system:

When did you purchase the Intel® processor? (For warranty purposes)

Did you build the PC?

Which video port are you using to connect the monitor/TV?

Are you using adapters or converters to connect the screen to the computer?

Did you ever see this error message on "Event Viewer" before installing the Intel® graphics driver?

Did you make any recent hardware/software changes besides updating the driver that might cause this problem?

You mention "some kind of lags in watching movies", are those movies stored in your local hard drive, or are they streaming movies?

If so, which application or website are you using to see those movies?

Which specific Windows* version are you working with?

Does the problem happen at home or in the work environment?

Please attach the SSU report so we can verify further details about the components in your platform, check all the options in the report including the one that says "3rd party software logs":

Any questions, please let me know.

well i have built this pc about 3 weeks ago.  and its a custom build by me. I'm using tv with hdmi port. i don't use any adapter or converter.

this error appeared when the windows installed the driver automatically and you can say its from the start of first run of windows. also this error happens if i remove the drivers either from device manage or using DDU. i didn't change any hardware. this lag is with media player classic with movies that are stored in ssd drive. I'm using windows 10 21h2(19044.1682).


Thank you. I have built this pc about 3 weeks ago.

I'm using tv as monitor with hdmi and without any adapter or converter.

this error appeared at the first run of windows when the windows automatically installed uhd drivers. And if i remove the drivers in the device manager or with DDU and reinstall any version of uhd driver i get the error.

i didn't make any hardware changes.

The lag appear in media player classic with videos that are stored in ssd drive.

OS: windows 10 pro 21H2 19044.1682

The problem happening in home.


pedro11, You are very welcome, thank you very much for providing that information and the SSU report.

According to the information shown in the SSU document, the graphics driver version currently installed on your computer is, provided by Intel®.

It is important to mention that the Intel® graphics drivers are generic, meaning they might or might not work as expected with your specific system. For that reason, we always recommend to install the graphics driver provided by the manufacturer of the computer, since that driver was customized by them to work with your specific platform.

I looked on ASUS's website and the latest graphics driver they have available is version tested and validated by ASUS for your board. Please try a clean installation of that driver following the instructions in the links below:

If the problem persists after that, even though the Intel® graphics drivers are generic, for testing purposes you can try a clean installation this time of Intel® graphics driver version, which was released yesterday:

Additionally, we recommend to get in contact directly with ASUS support to make sure the latest BIOS version is currently installed on your PC or, if necessary, to gather the instructions on how to update it:
