yes, yes and yes... witch is why I've run out of ideas. I'm using windows 7 and I have a intel hd graphics 4000.
Did you get the drivers directly from Intel's page or did you use the ones from your laptop's manufacturer, if we are talking about a laptop?
Yep, it's a laptop.. My intel driver update utility said "A customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer. The Intel® Driver Update Utility is not able to update the driver. Installing a generic Intel driver instead of the customized computer manufacturer driver may cause technical issues. Contact your computer manufacturer for the latest driver for your computer."
