prevent graphic driver update by Windows update to prevent BSOD VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE

Copper Contributor

My system info:


Microsoft Windows update has updated my graphics driver for Intel® Arc™ A370M Graphics to:

  • Provider: Intel Corporation
  • Version:
  • Date: Mar/16/2023

and perhaps other drivers, the update link is


Each time I uninstall the driver(s) and re-install the Lenovo OEM graphic drivers (older), Microsoft eventually re-installs this newer driver.

While on this newer driver I am getting various BSODs, such as today's BSOD VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE


The latest mini dump file is


How can I stop Microsoft Windows update from re-installing this newer driver after I remove it and restore the Lenovo recommended drivers?


Do I need to tell Microsoft (besides this discussion), that the driver is not compactable with my Lenovo device?

Hi Melutovich,

Can you try this workaround?
- Install the Lenovo OEM graphic drivers (older)
- Let Windows update the driver
- Device Manager > Display adapters > Select the adapter > Properties > Driver tab > Roll Back Driver

I did not realize that the Roll Back option existed, thank you. As the Lenovo OEM graphic diver was already installed previous, I was able to just roll back to it.
