I try to install newest Intel HD Graphics 4600 drivers on Windows 10, but get the BSOD: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (igdkmd64.sys). I tried drivers from:

  • Intel site
  • Asus (Motherboard manufacturer) site
  • Windows Update

This error come every time when trying to update the drivers. The Device Manager shows Microsoft generic VGA graphics adapter drivers and Intel drivers cannot be installed. The BSOD comes either while installing or after reboot.

The system has only Intel's onboard graphics.

How could I get Intel drivers installed without BSOD?

I found the solution and want to share it. My system is now working with newest Intel drivers installed via Windows Update. No BSOD so far.

I uninstalled the Lucidlogix Virtu MVP GPU Virtualization software and after that the GPU driver of Intel installed successfully.

The helpful post was found from http://www.eightforums.com/bsod-crashes-debugging/37892-bsod-boot-system_service_exception-error.html:

Although the crash dump blames igdkmd64.sys (Intel HD Graphics Driver) as the reason behind the crashes, it is no the real culprit here. It seems that the Lucidlogix Virtu MVP GPU Virtualization software which is playing the villein role here.

I have seen similar issues created by this software before (even two days before). Please uninstall all the components of this crapware from the system and your issue will be solved.
