    How do I get rid of Test mode


    Hi everyone
    In my brothers rig has the GMA x4500 as video card integrated so he has win 8 and he installed a custom modded
    driver to access to control panel and to config openGl and other things
    now he was asked to enable test mode before installing that driver and disable driver signing
    after he finished every thing he disabled back test mode but the system is keeping using it and the watermark stays
    at the bottom I tried these
    bcdedit -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
    bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING OFF
    with no sign of being removed
    any help here
    Thanks brothers

    You have it backwards, you need to turn TESTSIGNING off. Look here: “Test Mode Windows 8.1 Build 9600" Watermark - Remove

    Did you reboot? No error when typing the commands?

    Hello Gamer11,

    Did your brother uninstall the custom unsigned driver?

    If not, then since it's the video driver, it loading at startup could cause Test Mode to be enabled and give you the watermark.

    No if he uninstalled it he will get microsoft basic display driver and nothing will recognize the card
    any ideas

    That's why he's getting the Test Mode watermark then since an unsigned video driver is being loaded at startup.

    It's not going to hurt anything to leave the watermark until he gets an official signed driver though.

    so there was another main problem he went to this custom driver because his windows update refuses to install his WDDM driver
