    yeah, as i suspected. there may not be a driver that works for my situation, depending on the nature of the bug. it is entirely possible that i will simply need to wait for another update and hope that the new one works. I have tried multiple drivers, but none have worked. driver development for integrated intel HD graphics is not very high priority (I imagine), so the number of available options is rather lacking.

    If I had a spare video card i would just use that instead, but i do not. For now I am stuck waiting for an update or some other user solution.

    I had the same proplem.
    My solution was to change a wrong registry entry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\AutoAminLogon=1

    I changed the entry to AutoAminLogon=0, then the Login Screen Looks ok.

    The way that fixed it for me was to right click on the desktop and click configure switchable graphics. Under the recent applications, there was a program called logonui.exe. I changed the graphic setting to power saving and it started working instantly. Click image for larger version

So I disabled the lock screen as it's just another unnecessary click to login, but what I want to be able to do is customise the background image of the login/ctrl+alt+del screen. I know you can change the "accent" colour but I don't want to use a solid colour. How do I go about this?
