    Intel GMA 4500 M / MHD Extreme Plus 2 (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    Full Name : Intel (R) Graphics Media Accelerator Family

    Version : 20.21.7.6464 (2869 Mod)

    Rebranded : Intel (R) HD Graphics Family

    Q : What's New in this version ?
    A : Introduction of a new kernel code named 600 done by Intel yet was never used before in any of its drivers , the kernel is disabled by default and have to be activated through a batch file in Extra Tweaks folder . Also adding more stability for driver over DCH builds of Windows 10 .

    1 - Make sure you have System Restore enabled before installation for safety


    2 - Also it is recommended to have the latest mother board Bios installed

    3 - No there are no expected crashes or hassles but if any occur do note you may need to consult forums on fixing Windows corruption than rather thinking the driver is corrupted

    4 - Run the steps according to their exact numbers

    5 - Always use run as Administrator to Run a step

    6 - Starting step 1 the PC will restart so make sure you save all your work

    7 - Folder : Extra Tweaks hold additional performance tweaks that are useless

    8 - If you have already installed several other drivers and this one fail to install , a probable cause might be you need to remove previous drivers , if found to be hard try to update to Windows default driver (The WDDM) first

    9 - A red dialogue should pop up to inform you that you are about to install an unsigned driver where you have to click install to that , it's what we are doing here anyways

    10- Some Anti-Viruses have odd features called "Containment" or "Run Virtual" and sometimes these take control and setup the driver in a virtual machine like environment and not really install it (Example Comodo or Kaspersky) in all cases if you want to ease up your life just disable your Anti-Virus during setup , you can always scan the driver first just to make sure everything is clean and to note , this one shouldn't be hated by any Anti-Virus as it is constructed from all official files

    11- When all steps are done make sure to enable Intel Control Panel through Right Clicking Desktop > Graphics Property or alternative translation

    12- Enabling Tray Icon is accessible through : Right Clicking Desktop > Graphics Options or alternative translation

    13- If you can't find Graphics Properties / Options do re-install the driver

    14- It is better to make sure Intel Control Panel is set to the following :
    3D > Custom Settings > Checked
    3D > Texture Quality > Performance
    3D > Anisotropic Filtering > Application Settings
    3D > Vertex Processing > Default Settings
    3D > Vertical Sync > Off
    Power > Plugged In > Maximum Performance

    15- That's it , you are done , dismissed

    16- This driver was tested on Windows 10 1909 if a future release breaks it then do not nag for fix as you might hardly praise me if it works


    >>DOWNLOAD v2.0<< (02/02/2020) Stable Edition
    >>DOWNLOAD v2.1<< (03/03/2021) Supports : First Generation Graphics of Intel i Core Line of Processors (Beta)

    ****If you are into reading and history blahs read this :****

    This is a decent port of the Intel (R) Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 MHD Driver for Windows 10 64 bit, while backward compatible with most other platforms (Except for XP) I have not tested it but on Windows 10 .

    There are no plans to do follow ups nor fixes (nothing needs to be fixed really) as this is the final squeeze of the lemon to the driver that fixes all other glitches found in previous ports / accelerated version attempted for Windows 10 .

    I am not a wizard , if you do not have 8 GBs of RAM you will still suffer accelerated the driver is or not . It does run well on 4 GBs of RAM but then do not ask much from it other than running basic games and normal tasks .

    There is no 32 bit version as in this era staying with an OS that can only handle 3 GBs of RAM while the GPU itself require 1.759 GBs of shared memory meaning any attempt to use such platform is a joke .

    You might think but isn't using an integrated graphics chip in 2019 a joke?!
    Surprising this driver is capable of running most store games at 45 fps average , this isn't magic but apparently most of these games are optimized for tablet performance and tablets seem to not be very resourceful making their performance seeming equivalent to an integrated graphics chip .

    This release has been a collaboration of work and thoughts of several developers including me like the guys behind PHDGD moded driver & IncrediblE where I attempted to break down their approaches and fix the leaks .

    This release fix the following :

    1 - OpenGL errors / games will not start because of OpenGL (from PHDGD)

    2 - Windows crashing on resuming from Hibernation or Sleep (from IncrediblE)

    3 - Absence of Intel Control Panel User Interface (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    4 - Crashing SearchUI.exe when Cortana is Enabled (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    5 - Upgrading to latest Control Panel v.2993 (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    6 - Inclusion of Intel Turbo Booster & Display Audio (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    7 - Mild Over-Clocking (from IncrediblE)

    8 - Input Lag (by nIGHmAYOR)

    9 - Registry Optimization for Gaming (from PHDGD)

    10- Absence of Power Options support (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    11- Not functioning change resolution / orientation in Intel Control Panel (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    Known Issues :

    1 - This driver will not run any game that requires graphics memory above 1.75 GBs (example Asphalt 9)

    2 - Surprisingly this driver can operate games optimized for Nvidia and AMD better than the ones optimized for Intel as now intel is using moded version 9 of OpenGL and this driver version of OpenGL is 4 but still they will run normally

    3 - Do not expect the unexpected , I can't make this piece of crap beat an Nvidia or an I9 , I am just giving you a smooth entry to Windows 10

    4 - Glu games released past August 2018 may show Input Lag (of keyboard that can not be fixed because it is somehow deliberate despite their games running at 45 fps using this driver)

    5 - As per Windows design on creating a new user you might need to re-install the driver to have accessibility to context menu and tray icon again (because somehow windows manage to do a silent re-installation of the driver without signature flag removed for no valid reason)

    6 - Re-installing the driver further on can be a breath through device manager saved copy in drivers store , just click same driver installed and it will re-install

    7 - There is something important I can't seem to remember that should be here

    8 - And probably here

    Special thanks to the guys behind PHDGD and IncrediblE , if it wasn't for your crappy drivers I wouldn't have to write my own and P.S Royal BNA driver has a trojan so I haven't used any of their blahs , the *******s ...

    P.S

    a. This is a driver I made for a toddler whose parents didn't want to buy him a real PC but persisted that I should help him with it , so yea there are a couple of drivers out there that can help it port to windows 10 but the problems they add are greater than the ones they solve . so anyways since I realized that , I decided to share the driver I made him with the rest of you in case someone come to need it .

    b. Consider this driver a beta until someone reports back it gave him no problems

    c. And no personal demands , I didn't like the project one bit .

    F.A.Q :

    Q - Does this driver work for Intel GMA 4500 M / Intel GMA X4500 / Intel GMA X4500 HD?
    A - Yes , the X well before was how the GPU was named upon release then Intel changed it later to M , the 4500 M GPU has a speed of 400 MHz while the 4500 MHD GPU have a speed of 533 MHz but the rest of the chip functions all about the same , Intel even have the same driver listed for both .

    Q - I have installed version 2.0 of your driver last year , what is new in driver 2.1 and should I install it ?
    A - Nothing is new in driver 2.1 , just added more Hardware IDs for it to install for First Generation Graphics
    of Intel i Core Line of Processors (Ex : I3-### , i3-###M , i5-### , i5-###M , i7-### , i7-###M)
    * This was "Per Demand" of a forum user who stated it worked for him with no guarantees it might for you
    nor me planning to answer questions like "I have a bicycle will it work for me ?" as I don't know .

    Q - Would Mild Over-Clocking mentioned ruin my CPU over time ? I wouldn't use a decade old PC if i could buy another !
    A - This GPU in particular is locked for overclocking , however I found that the guys behind IncrediblE were able through a trick increase its voltage by 0.1 volt (mild over-clocking) , this in particular introduce a performance gain = to 2~3% and temperature increase = to 0.5~1C , while this is quite negligible I still managed to include it as every squeeze for performance gain count in such severe case of a relic GPU . For those skeptical I managed to include a registry file in a folder named "Extra Tweaks" to disable it so i suggest you do since you are so much worried .

    Q - I Have 4 GBs of RAM and when I play a certain game I get booted out somewhere in the middle is there a fix ?
    A - If by now you haven't noticed my quote here :
    Then please notice it now , this is not 2008 any more , Windows 10 can be memory hungry and even the GPU require shared memory of 1.759 GBs how do you expect all that add up when you are playing a serious game ? Luckily early generation DDR3 and also DDR2 Rams depending on your board support are now being sold for a fraction of its price back in the days , and is guaranteed to give you good performance on Windows 10 as the majority of the users who has it stated .

    Q - I bought a game that would not run or crash because i am using this driver , can you fix it ?
    A - Most likely the game you are running is dedicated for a different OpenGL version or DirectX one , this GPU hardware supports only OpenGL 2.1 and DirectX 9.0c
    games / apps and you can't ask from a hardware more than it can give (Well you can but usually the hardware eventually breaks or slow down but this is beyond the scope or the intention of this driver) , if however you are absolutely sure the game matches the driver's OpenGL level your next bus stop should be developers' customer support / forum as sometimes they black list certain GPUs by Device ID on Windows 10 due to removal of OpenGL support on the officially released W.D.D.M driver that installs by default by Windows making it impossible for their games to run so they just ban it from working on such hardware and call it today sadly so not to answer to zillion support requests as to why it is not running for victims of the W.D.D.M drivers .

    Q - Should I really upgrade this old tech or save the money for new one ?
    A - This is an economical question only you can answer , depending weather if there is another family member who can benefit from this PC if you upgrade or in case saving for new process might take a while or you may need a backup PC for in the future to test or whatever .

    Q - Are there any other tips recommended to boost this PC performance even more ?
    A - There are only two I can think of , first is to update your IDE/ATAPI Controller driver in device manager to something other than the generic one Windows provide which may maximize data bandwidth rate and may boost Windows performance in general , also there is an ancient tool named SetFSB which can boost the bus speed by a margin leading to an over all marginal better performance , also pausing / disabling windows restore while playing a game may improve play dramatically but techs do not like to advice it because who knows what may happen .

    hello, first of all sorry for the bad english (Google Translator).

    I have a request, if possible

    I use Geforce now but my laptop does not support dx11 which I think is necessary for the application to run fully at the moment I have the error 0xc0f1103f

    make geforce now work on Intel GMA 4500MHD DX10.1

    According to this tutorial on how to fix the claimed error : How to FIX GeForce NOW Error Code 0xC0F1103F (SYSTEM DOESN&#39;T MEET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR STREAMING) - YouTube , it is said that this error relates to you trying to use streaming component of Geforce while not present in hardware . The tutorial above try to fix this on dual graphics laptops by trying to direct "Geforce Now" to use the proper graphics chip (that is Nvidia) instead of Intel . Now I have doubts you know what you are doing basically because if you are probably using an 11 years old laptop (Judging that it has Intel 4500 MHD) that has dual graphics it wouldn't support streaming in first place . So no DirectX update / modification can fix this (And on a side notice it is not even possible) .

    Hi again! I'm glad I found this thread.
    Quoting a message:
    I went to work and upgrade one laptop for sale.
    It has an first gen Intel Core i3-330M CPU with integrated graphics - Intel HD Graphics Arrandale.
    I installed all the drivers, but there was a big question.
    Which driver for HD Arrandale is really the latest? 2993 or 3268?
    It can be found on the Driveridentifier where the ID of my GPU device - matches.
    Thanks

    You can look here: Intel(R) HD Graphics driver free download for windows - Hewlett-Packard - HP ProBook 4320sAttachment 348605Attachment 348606

    2993 created by Intel was born broken , HP managed to negotiate a working one with Intel for support of laptops that were not EOL yet due to business agreements , their released driver is slow , so please try the one posted on this thread first and report back .

    I really could not install driver version 2993 as well as 3268. Not .zip etc. operations either. Because the Turbo Boost installation climbed out.
    I currently only have a 2900 version. I'm not sure to install a modified driver, the laptop is still for sale. But thanks a lot i'll appreicate it

    First of all massive thanks. The driver installed correctly on windows 11 with no issue whatsoever. I'm glad that there are people like you on this planet. Again thanks for helping other people despite not being paid to do so. I literally just made the accout to thank you.

    If I can, can you please tell me how do I know if the driver is being used? The reason why I'm asking this is because after installing the driver I rebooted once more and installed the chipset driver to try and fix a power management issue (spoiler alert it was not fixed, the workaround is to go to regedit and disable intel power management altogether). Now I do suspect that the chipset driver might have tried to replace your custom 2.1 driver with something else. How do I know if that's the case?

    I attach a picture of my device manager:

    Thanks again for all your efforts.

    Massive Thanks.

    I disabled auto driver install, disconnected, uninstalled and removed the display driver, everything went black so i rebooted with keyboard shortcuts, the display was working ok with the basic display adapter (fun fact on my x200 is actually more responsive than the microsoft wddm driver).

    Step1, Reboot, Step2, Reboot, Step3, Reboot, check on the device manager and... Intel(R) HD Graphics Family driver 20.21.7.6464 with the date 03/03/2021. BOOOOM massive thanks.

    Now Extra Tweaks: Mild OC ON, Quality enhancements OFF, Beta Kernel ON (was tempted to go with hybrid but lets try and see), Forge Open GL OFF.

    Performance Benchmark
    WebGL aquarium on Edge with 500fish: Before 30-33ish fps, now 35-37ish
    KillingFloor lowest settings 800x600: before 40-50ish fps, now 42-55ish.


    Now lets put my pc aside for a moment and appreciate the fact that nIGHTmAYOR by releasing this driver is actually doing something much more important than save money. This person is actively making sure that as much as possible we don't kill the planet by trashing perfectly working PCs which is both a waste of resources, energy, and CO2.

    Tell us if there is a way we can offer you a beer or a coffee in any way.
