X230T - Major Windows 8 Graphics Problems

2012-08-17, 23:21 PM

Hi all,

 

I own a X230 Tablet with the Intel HD4000 running Windows 8 Release Preview. I know it's still a beta but I was just wondering if anyone else has run into major graphics problems on Windows 8 Release Preview. I'm currently using the most up to date W8 64 bit Drivers from intel.

 

There is a huge amount of clipping, flickering and white backgrounds being shown as black. The apps I've noticed this in are OneNote MX (whenever pen input done), Windows Reader (All PDF white backgrounds are shown as black) and Internet Explorer 10 Metro (Tab previews have black bacgrounds). This is strange to me, though I've found at least one other X230T owner with identical problems.

 

Pictures, videos and descriptions can be found here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-winapps/intel-hd4000-onenote-mx-w8-reader-ie10-games/90ac18bd-8d26-4974-98a2-3f9c3d97cae0

 

Just wondering if Lenovo engineers are aware of this issue and if a fix exists/ is being worked upon. It's somehwat fustrating as it makes many core Windows 8 experiences unsuable (which was the point of buying a touch screen laptop).

 

Thanks

 

Solved! See the solution

Thanks for the advice but I get an "One or more drivers could not be installed" error every time I try. I even tried manually installing it from the Device Menu but it just says "Your driver is already up to date" (This is trying to install over the default Windows 8 preset driver).

 

Any other advice?

have you tried the lenovo win7 drivers? other than that, keep an eye on the win8 beta driver page for a newer driver between now and the win8 general availabilty.

 

sorry i can't offer more.

cheers.

I've tried to install the win7 drivers but am always just hit with "Your Computer does not meet the requirements" and fails and quits.

 

In fact, the only graphics drivers that install are some Intel ones for w8 on the Intel website buts its a few versions behind the one Lenovo provides.

The ones linked above fixed the issue. For those wondering, its the 2828 version drivers, which can also be downloaded externally (but not from intels site). Disable driver signature enforcement to install.
