To summarize for all future PC purchasers looking at PCs with the Intel Graphics Subsystems in them - [ e.g.Graphics Card Vendor: Intel Graphics Card: Intel® HD Graphics 2000 or 2500 or 3000 or 4000 series ]...

These Intel Graphics subsystems are designed specifically to support:

1) 2D Business Graphics
2) Media Streaming [e.g. Your Blue Ray DVD's movie will look great]

Gaming is an afterthought! GPU processing on these Intel subsystems is limited by design to optimize 2D applications like the above. You are very unlikely to get SL running properly on these systems.

Serious gamers & 3D Virtual World enthusiasts need a Graphics Subsystem that focuses on 3D rendering and high GPU processing tasks. This is why you see the large cooling systems on higher-end Graphic Cards, to cool the GPU when it is busy calculating the 3D imagery & shading rendering for display multiple times per second [known as the FPS - Frames Per Second speed].

So, you may try to install and run SL on this PC but be ready to run it in the lowest possible video mode and be ready for crashes and/or unusual graphic artifacts on screen. Make sure you have the latest driver from Intel installed as well.

Graphical errors in the Second Life Viewer

If you are running Second Life on a PC with an Intel HD 4000 graphics processor with outdated drivers, you may experience some or all of the following symptoms:

 

  • Color corruption on buttons and floaters
  • Flickering user interface (UI) components such as buttons and menus
  • All inworld textures appear black when S3TC is enabled in the Hardware Settings section of the Graphics Preferences window
  • Seemingly random or intermittent crashing while not performing a specific activity

 

These issues may be resolved by downloading and installing the latest Intel HD 4000 driver from Intel's download center.

 

Second Life crashes when logging out on a secondary monitor

Second Life may crash when you try to log out while the Second Life Viewer is displayed on a secondary monitor.  This issue only occurs when the viewer window is maximized; you can avoid this crash by either moving the viewer window to your primary monitor or unmaximizing the window before logging out.

This issue may be resolved in a future update to the Intel HD 4000 graphics driver.
