Non-functional HDMI video output on Intel Sandy Bridge Platform like ASUS P8H67-I DELUXE

I recently set up a media center running Windows 7 x64 on an ASUS P8H67-I Deluxe mini-ATX board. After installing the latest (and 2-3 previous releases) Intel reference video driver, I found that I either got a BSOD or non-functional HDMI graphics output to my TV.


Intel only keeps the last 2-3 releases of their driver on their site, and I found all of them non-functional when the system was hooked up to my TV. I found people complaining online, and comments that revision 2279 fixes the problem… but Intel didn’t have 2279 still active on their download servers.

Lenovo’s driver for the M91p system (with a similar graphics platform) worked great for me.
