My computer is having an issue where system will run at 100%, and the display will not wake back up. I wrote a script to run xperf when this happens (can't remote desktop in) and the resulting etl file indicates that all the time is going in igdkm64.sys. So ensuring I have the latest graphics driver installed seems like a good first step in trying to resolve the issue.
I have an Intel driver installed, 188.8.131.5244. The Driver support Assistant claims I have a 'customized computer manufacturer driver'. If I download the latest, 184.108.40.20619, it claims it's 'not validated for this computer'. Do Intel not support drivers for their NUC's ?
Starting with build 6444, the intel HD graphics drivers are in DCH form. In order to install a DCH driver, you need to use the following manual process:
- Download the driver installer to your NUC's System Drive. Do not attempt to install.
- Disconnect the NUC from the Internet. Unplug Ethernet cable and/or disable Wireless.
- Uninstall the current Intel HD Graphics driver from the Apps and Features Settings scene.
- Install the DCH driver using the installer downloaded previously.
- Reconnect to the Internet.
Hope this helps,
