Ive been trying to fix a problem to do with driving a display correctly through the HDMI port on an Acer x3900 desktop machine, basically the display was shifted/mis aligned when connected by HDMI but worked fine on a standard VGA analog connection. After some checking, i used the Intel driver updater link below:
This utility, showed there was a newer driver (version 22.214.171.12423) which i was able to install and this has fixed all the HDMI mis alignment problems, i can also set lower screen resolutions and these work fine on the display.
I have another very similar machine (X3900) also intel core i5 with the same Intel HD graphics 2000, but when i try to use the updater on this it says that the driver might be customised by the manufacturer (acer) and to look on their site for the latest driver, but here they only show a much earlier driver (126.96.36.1991) which this machine already has installed. This machine shows the mis alignment problem, so im wondering why it reports a different message to the first machine ?
Looking on the intel download page the latest Intel HD Graphics 2000 for Win7 64bit is version 188.8.131.5223.
Do you think if i try installing this its likely to work? the intel site advises against installing their version if the mfg may have customised it, no idea how to know this i guess ?
Is there any relevance in the last 4 digits of the driver version (3223) as its the same on the machine that is now working correctly?
