Windows 7: Intel graphics kernel mode driver

Intel graphics kernel mode driver

System info is telling me this driver is causing my comp to start slowly and says to uninstall if no longer using it.

Should I uninstall - will it affect anything?

Hi,

It will affect your Intel Graphics card if you uninstall the driver.

I would suggest trying a clean boot which will use a minimal set of drivers and startup programs.
See if the computer then boots quicker?

Also check with the Intel Update Utility to see if there is a newer driver available for your Intel card.
or OEM: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8Z77V_LX/#support_Download_30

Thanks,

I already went to the Intel site you referenced and updated network driver, but couldn't find anything about the driver I mentioned.

I'll contact them tomorrow.

I've been there too.

Where do you see anything about the kernel driver?

Under Chipset and under VGA, update both.

Also I'm running a bit blind, can you upload your msinfo32 file please:

1. Start Menu -> Type msinfo32 into the Search programs and files box
2. When it opens, go to File, Save -> Save as msinfo32.nfo and save in a place you will remember
3. Let it finish the process of gathering and saving the system info
4. Right click the .nfo file, click send to compressed (zipped) folder -> Upload the .zip file here.

cheers

Update these two, Reboot, then check your msinfo32:

Your attached msinfo32 file is corrupt!
