Did Windows 8.1 fix the graphic driver problems some people were having?
I am running Windows 8.1 and I am wondering if they fixed the problem some people(including me) were having with video card drivers. Also, do I need to get new drivers?
That question is so vague as to be meaningless.
Windows 8.1 replacement required me to reinstall the same Intel drivers. The OS put out a notice of that. Non-Intel drivers were carried over or upgraded automatically.
When using an external monitor, the driver blanks the screen up to 3 times after each reboot. I have no idea if that's the kind of thing you have in mind. It's using the Microsoft Generic PnP monitor driver from 2006 and the Intel HD Graphics driver which has updated over Windows Update since I made the win8.1 conversion.
I was having brightness issues with Windows 8 using the Ivy Bridge reference ultrabook. For what its worth its been working flawlessly under 8.1.
The issue persists in a kind if you upgrade from windows 8 to 8.1 . But a clean install helps.
Does your post mean you experienced the issue and resolved it? If so, how exactly did your resolve the issue?
I don't have a solution for the problem but managed to circumvent in twice. On a fresh install of Win 8.1 we go with stock drivers of grahics with usual procedure. But before upgrading, I uninstalled the drivers. That seemed working on my machine.
Are you talking about one of the Intel reference UBs, a retail UB or a PC?
I had a retail UB and problem was succesfully tackled on two occasions.
I upgraded my 8 to 8.1 before and I haven't seen any graphics problems. The only thing I have noticed is that some applications are missing so I downgrade.
Which applications were missing?
