    Problem with Intel DG45FC Graphics

    Hey Guys,

    Not so carpc related, but i know some of you have the Mini-ITX board DG45FC from intel. I am having problems with the graphics output, whenever i disconnect or turn off my tv, or reboot the machine, it just comes up with a picture on the tv that looks like a refresh rate problem or something, and the drivers are really crappy, basically no settings other than resolution and refresh rate, but this seems to get reset or something after reboot. Only way i can get my display back is safe mode/remove drivers and boot again and install the drivers once again. but the second i reboot i get the same error....any suggestions ? i am using newest g45 drivers from intel.

    What do you mean TV?
    Are you not using a VGA/DVI device? Just a TV-out??

    I would suggest looking in your BIOS setup for which video device to boot from.

    With that said, I've always loathed anything with integrated Intel graphics...just
    ****ty graphics performance all together...

    by TV i mean my Sony W3000 42 inch Full HD LCD TV via HDMI, Intel had promoted this as being able to decode VC1/h264 in 1080P with the X4500HD, which does not work properly due to bad drivers from intel, but i am using it anyway, since i have a 3ghz core 2 duo cpu which will do that job instead. I don't need 3D acceleration, so i don't really care about gaming performance and such, all i care about is HDMI/DVI output and optical spdif sound, which that mini-itx board has.

    If it has HDMI and VGA output, in other words dual display, it might be when you unplug the TV, and plug it in, it's getting the dual display mixed up? Try plugging a monitor in as well as your TV and retest...

    It has HDMI and DVI, and no, nothing is on the DVI port either, once the hdmi goes berserk.

    I just found a new driver version for the G43 chipset which also works for G45, and this has solved the problem :-)

    I can't find the link right now, but its the latest intel driver for the G43 chipset, it works for G45 as well.

    Intel DG45FC ITX Motherboard question on Video

    Noticed folks discussing HDMI and DVI ports on the DG45FC motherboard from intel.. does anyone know if the HDMI and DVI can be used simulaniously in a dual montior configuration... I don't have the system so I can't test it outright.. if anyone has tried it.. I'd be interested in learning from your experience. Thanks in advance for your help..
