    Try the 3304 drivers. I've been using them for quite awhile with no problem. Found them on HP site, hopefully they are cross platform generic ones: Intel High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver | HP® Support

    PS: Make sure you have function button software installed if you manufacturer provides one.

    If you are letting Windows Update change your Intel graphics drivers, that could be the problem.

    Did you try 3304 drivers? Just saying they have been working for me for months. We have similar system specs. It is all I can offer at this point.
