Possible bugs in video drivers HD 630/NVIDIA 1050 with an external monitor - VS2017 window is black on the secondary monitor in Windows 10

On the driver page we have this:

Intel HD Graphics 530 Driver View details
File Name: Intel-HD-Graphics-530-Driver_28VH9_WIN_21.20.16.4727_A03.EXE

If the GPU is HD Graphics 630. Why is the driver 530???

Also in "View details" we have: 

Enhancements:
- Update Intel 15.46 graphic driver branch for RedStone2 OS

Intel 15.46 supports OpenGL 4.5 and this driver doesn't: Intel-HD-Graphics-530-Driver_28VH9_WIN_21.20.16.4727_A03.EXE 

Then we have the following problem when I connect and external monitor to the HDMI port:

The window of Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 when dragged and snapped to the corner of the external monitor turns black but only sometimes. This rendering problem appears to be a driver problem according to Microsoft.

This needs to be addressed by Dell/Intel or NVIDIA as there appear to be many complaints.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I am talking about Windows 10. And this is what I see:

Zingam,

What is your computer model that you are trying to update the video card drivers into?

Inspiron 7567.

Also people with other Dell laptops (like Precision laptops) are reporting this problem on the Microsoft's support web site.

I haven't tried the drivers from Intel/NVIDIA websites yet. Should I?

Zingam, 

Yes, you can try the drivers from Intel/Nvidia to see if it resolves the issue. Please post back after updating.

I installed GeForce experience and it offered me to update the driver. I did it.

Then I downloaded and installed the latest driver from Intel:  The problem persist still.

There is another issue with the latest Intel driver. The laptop fails to wake up from sleep. The laptop display is black and mouse pointer is a big garbled square. The image on the external display is OK. This is fixed only by restarting Windows.

When will Dell release the drivers with OpenGL 4.5?
