    Set IGP to Enabled. On the flashing matter, I was referring back to your earlier post where you said it wouldn't boot after set to PEG and Enabled, a common occurrence. Apparently I misinterpreted the post if in fact you were able to boot.

    Yea I tried this and still no fix, iv tried every combination and still no fix. When it boots using the IGD it works as it should... This has to be a driver issue.

    Clsoing my lid and opening it again causes my screen to return to max brightness as well, but only sometimes. Since I have discovered this, I am sometimes opening and closing my laptop 2 or 3 times before I begin my session :S

    I feel your pain, so far this is the only fix I have found to work. I fear we must wait for a new driver of even a new vbios to flash.

    Do you have MSI AB set to run on start up and have the OC run on start up?

    Your games are probably freezing because your OC is too high. Try lowering your clocks. Also, what game are you playing that you need to run 950/1400 to play?
