I3 3225 graphics not working


Jan 6, 2013
Howdy folks,

So I just built my first PC. i3 3225, ASRock z77 Extreme4-M. I know that my CPU operates a intel 4000hd graphics on board, but it doesn't appear to be running; I can't even run Solitaire and movies look grainy and rough. Does anybody have any tips for me? I'm not a gamer or anything, so I don't want to have to buy a dedicated device, but I need to do something different.

sometimes intel comes with defective graphic, it will work for display... but wont work on 3d/opengl... try running windows experience index...

it happened to my i3 several months ago

no option, claim warranty and return it
