MSI GX70 3cc laptop with AMD r9 m290X & A10 w APU keeps updating from legacy drivers to non-supported driver automatically, i've had to use the clean install utility about 10 times to reinstall the older driver now...

Is there a way to permanently disable the automatic update?

I already disabled it in catalyst control center and that does not help, it stays legacy for a few days and then it just automatically updates.


Another extra question:
which bios should i use to update my BIOS, really want to turn off the APU so i can use the updated drivers, but to do this(or at least have a chance that i might be able to turn off the APU) i have to update my BIOS and i cant find the correct version anywhere.

My current System info:
