If I try to install any driver other than the very old driver that came on the motherboard CD, the graphics driver BSODs at the end of the install. I then have to boot into safe mode and rollback or install the old version.


I also have the P8H61-I mini-ITX version of this motherboad but that mobo doesn't have this issue.


I am curious, if you own this motherboard, what version of the Intel graphics driver are you running (32-bit or 64-bit, version #, date). That'll help me isolate if this is a problem specific to my system or if others are experiencing this as well. Google, tech forums and the ASUS website haven't shed much light on the issue.


Thanks.

Looking through other motherboard reviews, it seems there's some issue with the latest Intel drivers and HDMI? Is this true?

Yeah this is a huge issue that is well known.

Here.


Assuming you are using 64 bit use this driver . Solves most problems.

I only have 2GB so I am using Windows 7 32-bit. The BSOD indicates the error is in igdkmd32. Luckily, the version that came on the motherboard CD works ok.

Look like I have the .2291 version. That's what came on the motherboard. I did a complete reinstall last night (this was not the only wonkiness), updated to SP1 and got all the other drivers up-to-date. I might just leave it for now. It seems to be fine even if it's 6 months old.


If it ain't broken don't tinker with it I guess.


OT: I've been using the Kingston V100 SSDs in some of my machine. Last night's reinstall I used a MicroCenter G2 SSD. The Kingston V100s would get a 5.9 in WEI which isn't any better than a 7200RPM SATA II (albeit noticeably faster despite the nu,ber) but the MicroCenter got a 7.6. The difference is VERY noticeable. Wow. Not bad for $89.99.
