As in the case of many computer errors, we first recommend that you scan your computer using a reliable antimalware tool. Malware infections, as you may know, are the number one cause of application errors such as the ones listed above. In case scan results show that your computer is clean, move on to the next step, i.e., uninstall your current Intel video driver and reinstall the latest Intel video drivers from the Intel website.

Although you may be able to locate the latest Intel video drivers on other websites, we strongly recommend that you don’t download drivers from any place other than the Intel official website. This is because many websites are known to push malicious programs by disguising them or bundling them with genuine files or programs.
