  2. Driver Error AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5000

    ok, it didn't work after all. windows update has seemingly installed another
    driver update for my amd mobility radeon hd 5000, this time breaking it again.

    i tried what you suggested step by step, but that didn't work either. I'll try it again with running a win 7 driver in compatibility between steps two and three and keep you posted on the results.

  3. Stop AMD Display Driver

    Please provide solution for completely stopping driver download for AMD Radeon. This hardware has gone bad and I can't remove it from mother board.

    I have a i7 laptop with SSD and it runs very fast except that now it has become useless because of windows auto install of drivers.

    So far:

    1. I went to safe mode, unistalled driver from Device Manager with delete files option. After this laptop is working fine.

    2. Registry - I have added following

    ExcludeWUDriversInQualityUpdate - set to 1 under

    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

    3. Control panel - Advance System Settings - Device Installation Settings - Set automatic download to No.

    Despite step 2 and step 3 , reboot brings back the AMD Driver under Display Drivers and I have just few seconds before I uninstall or computer hangs ( after which its the whole drill of safe mode, uninstall driver .. and in safe mode also it hangs if I lose
    the race against the pc after which screen hangs ).

    Side note - To play around, I also noticed that even I do hardware scan in Device Manager, AMD Radeon comes back immediately. But since I am there, I uninstall before PC hangs.

    So what I need ?

    Disable AMD Radeon display forever.

    Stop auto update of AMD driver.

    Ensure that windows updates comes through without downloading AMD.
