Did you try installing it in compatibility mode?

I tried so many different things to figure out how to fix this, I lost track of what worked. Sorry about that.

This, from the Dell website, will work.

The real pain about the Intel graphics drivers is the newer versions of the driver have a specification in the INF to NOT install on Windows 8. You can modify the INF but win 8 will spit the driver back because of an invalid hash. Only way around it is to modify the INF, disable driver signature enforcement for one boot, install the driver, and reboot.

Hi all,

Have had many issues with this on my i7 2670QM Dell L1702X on 64bit. I tried all the drivers posted in this thread to no avail to see if one fixed my issues for good (Screen flickering, randomly not switching to HDMI out and metro apps going black/flickering -> login screen).

Have you tried the new Intel HD 2nd/3rd gen beta driver for Windows 8?

So far so good, no Metro issues at least.

Since my recent reinstallation of Windows 8 I have not installed any video card drivers for my Intel GPU. Tonight I shall try the one you provided, thanks for that. :)
