    Hi,
    Just updating the team that after using the new beta driver from Intel for the 520 display adapter I can happily report that the driver crash issues seem to finally be gone!
    I was skeptical but I did install the driver (extracted the zip file, device mananger->Manually update the driver ).

    It's been 3 days without a single display driver crash (and I used to have them happen 2-3 times a day). Really hoping MS will adopt and release an update with these drivers soon.

    Well that's what I am reporting. I had the same issue and after upgrading to the new drivers it stopped crashing.
    Give it a try.

    I have to report success as well. I installed the drive 2 days ago and have only had one crash since the install. The funny thing is prior to me getting my SB I had bought a HP 360 which had the same drivers installed as Intel is calling Beta for us. the new control panel was the exact same as the one I now have on my SB.

    Thanks! I was just about to update my post saying the same thing lol... I ended up downloading the zip instead and manually updating via device manager, and browse for the .inf file.

    OK now updated. Let's see how this goes.

    Yeah - that's the way to do it. Download the zip, extract and do "update driver" from the Intel display adapter under your device manager.
    Surprisingly this beta version is A LOT more stable than the non-beta version of the driver (at least on my machine).
