    Have you tested any of them? Which one?

    I have the same issue as you, though I got a green screen, a start button and nothing else. But I was able to revert to latest driver(1168) by launching explorer->device manager by pressing "windows key+R" to bring up the "Run dialog". So now I am still stuck with the wakeup graphics crash issue.

    I am wondering how the issue can escape from multiple levels of QAs: INTEL, MS, and OEMs. It has been so long and not having any fix being such a widespread issue. It looks like every ATOM tablet has this issue.

    Edit: it turns out I was not using the correct driver. I installed the graphics driver(1099) from ME400C_DriverPackage_1.00_Customer.rar which my model(wifi only). I should have use the graphics driver(1117) from ME400CL_DriverPackage_V200_Customer.rar which is for LTE model. After installing graphics driver from this package the blank screen is gone and wake up crash is also gone!

    I followed all the steps in the instructions. I deleted the Graphics media accelerator and selected to delete the driver files. I also disabled the auto driver update but for some reason Windows still keeps updating the 1117 driver back to 1168. Is anyone else having this problem? Are there any other settings I need to change or files I need to delete to stop the driver from updating itself automatically? After the driver updated itself I did the "rollback driver" thing but after a day it went back to 1168 again. I then redid everything from scratch and it still updated itself again today.

    After a while 1160 turns out as problematic as 1168. 1158 and 1156 don't install. So it's back to 1130, which runs fine.

    Hi guys!
    Thanks to you I finally don't have glitches and problems with unlocking my tab but new problem appeared - tablet seems not to always recognize external monitor. It's connected with microHDMI like always but now it works only from time to time and for only minutes. When I want to force extended view with Intel Graphic Control Panel I always get "intel invoke panel has stopped working" and notification after the app is shut off :/ Maybe you have any idea what could be wrong?

    I found I had to change automatic updates to the let me select updates option. This let me disable the driver update I think setting Windows Update to automatic has then ignored the update.

    I have had the same issue as Sancho. I followed all the instructions, reverted to 1117, but Windows updates back to 1168 with all its problems. Help, please!
