Windows 10 Education 10.0.10586 Application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware.

2017-10-02, 4:21 AM

I have a T440 Thinkpad with Intel HD Graphics 4400 with the driver version 20.19.15.4531. I also have the Windows 10 Education version 10.0.10586. Everytime I try to play a game---ranging from Sid Meier's Pirates! (created in 2004) to Assassin's Creed Black Flag (2013)---the video within the game freezes then, after multiple Ctrl+Alt+Delete's and cancels back to the game, it crashes and I get the alert that "the application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware." I have tried to find fixes for this in many other places, but I have failed on multiple occasions. Most of the fixes are for Windows 7 or maybe 8. Are there any fixes for Windows 10 Education? I really need to know. it is driving me insane!

Type cmd in the search box from Start. Then right-click on Command Prompt to select Run as administrator.

Type sfc /scannow

hit enter

 when that finishes, type DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

hit enter

 when that finishes, type DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

hit enter

I have tried this. The command prompt returns saying those commands are not recognized and provides me a list of commands that are. Scanhealth and Restorehealth are not among those commands.
