    Win 10 negates custom installation of driver


      I cannot install the AMD hdmi driver as it wont produce sound when I connect to the living room tv for gaming, I have always used the onboard sound driver as it works on both my monitor and tv.  I usually select custom installation and uncheck the hdmi driver but Windows 10 just ignores this and performs a background install of the driver anyway, is there any way to prevent this using your installation package as Windows 10 really doesn't care what I want to do and does its own thing, I have tried uninstall and delete driver in device manager but thats a load of rubbish as it reinstalls the 'deleted' driver.


      I'm asking here because asking Microsoft will be pointless.

          Hey demonvesper,


          Although Microsoft has created quite a few issues by forced driver updates, there are ways to circumvent them. Follow the steps below to properly install what you do or do not wish on your computer.


          • Step 1: Open Windows search as seen below.

          • Step 8: Restart your computer for the changes to fully take effect.


          • Step 9: Now you can properly install drivers manually as it was previously.


          NOTE: Remember any and all changes made here in the case you wish to revert back to the previous automated state in the future.
