Computer: Dell XPS 14 Z

OS: Win7 64-bit Enterprise

Chipset: HM67

CPU: i5 2450M

 

I had many BSODs that I tried to fix with a 3rd party application to update drivers. The application installed the wrong version of the graphics driver, causing more BSODs. The first BSOD fixed itself with an update. I uninstalled that driver and installed the latest version. Unfortunately, more problems were to come. The driver did not crash, but lagged severely on games, singularly, Minecraft. Normally, this game runs extremely well even with many background applications and multitasking. After the driver update, even the main menu had an FPS of no more than 3. In-game, the FPS reported by Minecraft was stable in the bracket of 1-3, making the game entirely unplayable. The path taken to reach this point makes driver rollback impossible.

Steps taken to troubleshoot:

1. Restart computer

2. Clear Java cache

3. Update Java to latest (7 u15 64-bit)

4. Made fresh install of Minecraft

5. Install Optifine (Minecraft Optimization mod) to make sure it wasn't a game error

6. Did a quick defrag

Needless to say, they didn't work.

The one thing I haven't done is install a new graphics driver, because I'm not sure which one to install. That's where I need your help.

There you are.

Also, I want to clarify.

I did find the right driver, although Intel's latest version makes Minecraft slow.

Also, all background applications work fine with Minecraft in background. Minecraft seems to be a little faster after a night of the computer being shut down, but the FPS is still below normal. The lag charts Minecraft supplies are off the charts. The main menu is still laggy and the same symptoms show. Also, debug shows that allocated resource usage is very low despite lag.

You can also use this program that often help identify your BSODs

Please download BlueScreenView (in zip file) to your Desktop

  • Extract (right-click > Extract all) the contents of bluescreenview.zip.
  • Double-click on the Extracted Folder
  • Double-click on the BlueScreenView.exe file, to run the program. (No installation is required.)
  • When scanning is done (usually complete by the time the interface appears), go ...
  • Edit > Select All
  • File > Save Selected Items, and save the report to your Desktop as BSOD.txt.
  • Close the BlueScreenView window... ... ...
  • Open BSOD.txt using Notepad and go ... .... ..
  • Edit > Select All
  • Edit > Copy, and then paste the entire contents of the text file into your next reply.

Ok, I'll get working on that.

In other news, I confirmed that the lag is in other games too.

When it lists => Motherboard - Dell Inc. 008DD8 (U3E1) it is always hard to decide if we should use Dell or other drivers.
But since you only asked for the Specific Intel Graphics drivers, I went along that direction.


You may still find something in the BSOD diagnostics, but a lot are caused by graphics drivers -


Let us know how you go with the version you have selected -


Thank You -

Using the version 15.28.8.64.2875, Minecraft started working much faster and is running nice. It's below normal, but it should work fine as no older drivers are on the Intel website. Thanks!

Unfortunately, all my copies of the game with mods are still laggy and are even more laggy as before in some cases.

I miss when I could play 100+ mods at once D:

Hi -

Please try the installed drivers for a day or 2, and you can always post back here for someone to try again -

Do you know how to find driver installation history? I want to find the first driver as that one worked best. I installed about two mods and the game lags to the point of disbelief.

I give up with all the newer drivers.

Give me a few minutes fo fire up the Windows7 computer, and I will check on that one - Currently on XP -

 

As a general answer, I would just say to uninstall the driver from Device Manager > Reboot and let it find the best version

You can try this, and you should be no worse off than you are now, or wait 5 minutes and I will see if mine has any "history" -

OK - From what I can find, this may include history of your drivers -

Go - Control Panel > Device Manager > Select your Device > Update Driver > Browse my computer for Driver Software > Let me pick from a list of Device Driverson my computer -

This lists a selection of drivers that may include your original one -

 

Worth a try .............

I did that and there were two choices: the Intel HD 3000 and the Standard VGA. Of course, I chose the Intel HD 3000. It started updating and I am left with a Minecraft that runs at an average of 3-15 FPS with two mods. It immediately becomes as fast as normal when I pause the game and main menu is still laggy. I notice that world loading is very slow as well, but starts speeding when I pause the game. This may or may not have been existant in other instances, since I never got the chance to venture as far as to get to the edge of the already-rendered part of the map.

At this point, my best venture is to find the original driver for my computer and to find a way to get it.
