Windows update keeps overwriting my installed AMD driver

 

The current graphic driver is 30.0.14011.3017

but

Windows 10,11 keeps trying past updates.

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. - Display - 27.20.11020.10001

 

Because of this, the blue screen comes up.

 

It's making me crazy.

 

Window update settings were turned off in the Local Group Policy Editor, but updates are still being attempted.

 

 

How can I solve this problem?

 

AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS with Radeon Graphics

The problem occurred in Windows 10 and 11.

In Windows 11, the computer is frozen.

Re: The graphic driver drives me crazy.

I found this on an older Windows forum post, maybe it will help?   open control panel - system - advanced system settings - hardware - device installation settings - click never install driver software from windows update. make sure to save changes

How to stop updates for drivers with Windows Update

Lots of people don't like the idea of 'stopping/delaying' Windows updates. I won't get in to that. Here is a way to prevent Windows Update installing any drivers. This does not effect the security, quality,  patch, or any other type update...they are presented as normal.

In short...you don't have to worry about WU installing (changing) AMD graphics drivers.

This is done through group policy:

Type gpedit in the search bar...follow > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update

On the right side scroll to Do not include drivers with Windows Update policy and double click it. Select the ENABLED option.

Click 'Apply' then OK.

Reboot your computer.

Re: The graphic driver drives me crazy.

Same here with another completely different machine. Would be awesome if the people from AMD just send the new drivers to MicroBUGS... sorry, I meant Microsoft, or at least give us some tool to stop windows from update SPECIFICALLY AMD drivers, even if it is a batch file or a registry modification. 

Here you see how much they care about the people who put money in their pockets

Btw: my next computer will be Intel with Nvidia. **bleep** you amd

Re: The graphic driver drives me crazy.

@Nath  This problem was because of Microsoft. AMD provided correct driver.

In this case Windows trying to install new driver from WU because it released at later date then that installed before.

It released at later date because that driver is special meant for that update and not tested with your hardware, because Microsoft will use you as beta testing coworker but without salary.

I suffered from this one when used Insider builds. I strongly recommend you to not install preview updates and Insider builds too.

Re: The graphic driver drives me crazy.

You cannot use drivers from AMD for Insiders builds....they are for public release builds.you must use whatever Insider provides.
