GfxUI crash


I just built my first HTPC and for the life of me I cannot figure out why this is happening. Windows works just fine, I can do anything, I can hook up my TV/Monitor via onboard DVI, VGA, or HDMI running in 1080p and everything appears to be fine. When I right click and view graphics properties the screen flashes black and tells me GfxUI has stopped working. Also I can watch video online from some sources (MegaVideo) but others it just brings my system to a halt and tells me GfxUI stopped working. I have the latest Intel drivers (, Intel Management Engine Interface (, and ING interface ( In addition, I've also tried numerous past drivers as well. I've also gone through and disabled/enabled .NET 3.5.1, updated .NET 4, got the Visual C++ Runtime, etc. I've done everything the other forums suggest to no avail. Any help would be appreciated!

Here is my setup:

Gigabyte H55M-UD2H Rev. 1.3
Intel Core i3 540 Clarkdale
Patriot Gamer 2 Series 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Crucial 60 GB SSD
Win7 Professional SP1 x64

Thank you for any suggestions.

  1. this is gonna sound stupid but i found others that it fixes the problem.
    run windows update. make sure you get .NET 3.0
  2. another guy fixed it by reinstalling windows.
  3. Thanks. Windows 7 has .NET 3.5 loaded with the OS, but I've also run windows update and gotten all the updates possible, as well as reinstalled windows. I also went back and installed every .NET framework I could (1.1, the rest it wouldn't let me do because it's integrated).
  4. Just re-read my last post and realized that it's ambiguous. I was trying to say that I've done all those things and it has NOT solved the problem. Any other thoughts?
