I recently reset my PC, and have noticed that since I have done so, Minecraft has been acting strangely. Whenever I play, the entire game window [GUI and all] flashes white for an instant. Or, the GUI will act up. It can be seen in this video. My specs are as follows.

Windows 8.1 Update 1

Intel i5-4200u processor

Embedded Intel HD Graphics 4400

8GB DDR3 RAM, ~7.88 usable

Java version 7 Update 67 [32- and 64-bit are both installed]

Also, Minecraft is currently set to use no more than 4GB of RAM.

Has anyone else had this problem, or have a solution? I really want to play but I fear something might irreversibly mess up or something.

  • People are going to ask for your Java version information as well.

    My guess is there is something wrong with the drivers. Which ones are you using, the ones from Intel or from Acer?

  • I think they're Acer, but I'm not quite clear on it. Sep 16, 2014 at 22:10

    @crayzeedude are the drivers not the standard ones you got with the pc?

  • I don't believe they're not standard. I haven't done anything with my installed graphics drivers since the reset. Sep 16, 2014 at 23:58

1 Answer 1


So, after a long hiatus, I finally decided to update my graphics drivers. This worked, and I can now play Minecraft like normal again.
