From where did you get the driver? I would suggest either gigabyte's site or directly from Intel, but not provided Cd/DVD, as they could be too old.
Also, do you have SP1 installed? I got startup BSODs until I installed it (laptop with i3-2367M), but I never got to welcome screen.
I did a full update of win7, and downloaded the driver from the intel site, and the problem persist:
if i dont install the video driver, it works fine, on win 7, etc. but as soon as i install the driver, at random, can be 2 minutes, 5, when it starts, etc, i get artifacts, the pc freezes, i cant move the mouse and sometimes after a while in that condition it auto resets.
so i guess i need to do a rma for a defective part. in that case, what do u think i should return? the cpu? or the motherboard? (since the integrated video is in the cpu)
or there is any other thing i can do?
thank you again i hope u answer me

IF it doesn't show up as a problem in the device manager in windows 7 and it is fully functioning, you get the color bit depth and resolution with the win7 native driver, i'd leave it.
i don't know if intel or the vendor you purchased the CPU from would rma a some what functioning component. check with them.
Core i3 2120 + Asus P8H77-M LE in Win7 worked fine until I updated the graphics driver to Intel HD. It caused windows starting to black screen and no signal on the monitor.
I found that changing the cable from DVI to VGA made the difference.
Apparently something wrong with the output in digital (HDMI and DVI)
hello guys, just to get a closure after all this time i wanted to say that the problem was due to a strange thing involving the ram memmory and the integrated video card. so basically it was the ram which was not compatible, but with the video card, not the pc. memtest, all would give good results, but as soon as i installed the video driver of the integrated video, it starts to fail. after changing the ram, it works fine.
