Detailed Description

04/29/20 Update 

Reports of OEM errors are still occurring during installation. The majority, if not all of these, are due to the current driver on the system is non-DCH. This update will only install over OEM DCH drivers. If this occurs, follow these instructions:

WARNING: This will remove any OEM customizations. If the OEM does not have a DCH driver available, it’s likely no customizations will be reinstalled by Windows Update after you upgrade to 100.8141. If you experience any issues such as flickering, BSOD, TDR, etc, please reinstall the latest OEM driver.

  1. Verify you're on a supported Processor generation and OS version
  2. Disconnect the internet connection so Windows Update won't automatically reinstall a previous OEM driver.
  3. Open Device Manager > Display Adapters > right-click [Intel Graphics] > Uninstall Device

    1. Important: Check-mark "delete the driver software for this device"

  4. Right-click anywhere in device manager > select Scan for Hardware Changes

    1. Note: Many older versions can be stored on the system to roll back to

  5. If another Intel Graphics is reinstalled, repeat 3 & 4 until Basic Display Adapter is shown, not the Intel driver.
  6. Reboot
  7. Install 100.8141
  8. Reboot and reconnect internet
  9. Verify 100.8141 is installed in Device Manager
  10. Run Windows Update in case there are OEM customizations to reinstall

WARNING: Installing this Intel generic graphics driver will overwrite your Computer Manufacturer (OEM) customized driver. OEM drivers are handpicked and include customized features and solutions to platform-specific issues. The generic Intel driver provides users the latest and greatest feature enhancements and bug fixes that OEMs may not have customized yet to address platform-specific needs. Users can check for matching OEM versions at OEM websites.

Any graphics issues found using Intel generic graphics drivers should be reported directly to Intel. Corporate customers should always use OEM drivers and report all issues through the vendor they purchased the platforms and support through.


Gears Tactics* and XCOM: Chimera Squad* verified playable on Intel® Iris® Plus graphics or better.
