Automatic update of Win11 installs old version of AMD driver causing issues with AMD graphics card driver.



Recently, I assembled a computer and installed the Win1 system on it to use it as a server at home. However, I found that the computer automatically shuts down several times. After checking, I found that it was caused by the incompatibility of the AMD graphics driver. After searching, I found a solution.


This is because Windows 11 automatically updates and installs an older version of the AMD graphics driver, which is incompatible with the current AMD software. AMD has confirmed this issue on its official website and provided corresponding solutions.


  • For users who want to use AMD software, you can prevent Windows from updating and installing the AMD Radeon graphics driver through the system properties. The specific steps are as follows: press the Windows + S keys to open the search box, enter "Device installation settings," click "Change Device installation," then select the "No (your device might not work as expected)" option, and click Save Changes.

    This method is not recommended as it may prevent you from obtaining the latest component drivers.

  • Alternatively, users can reinstall the AMD software using the latest version provided on AMD.com.

  • For users who want to use UWP drivers, you can uninstall AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition through Windows Settings | Apps & Features and continue using the OEM-customized driver software.

    Additionally, if users want to prevent Windows 11 from automatically updating and replacing the AMD graphics driver, they can follow the methods below:

  • If you are using Windows 11 Pro or Enterprise, you can use the Group Policy Editor and follow these steps: open the Group Policy Editor, go to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update > Manage the updates provided by Windows Update, double-click "Do not include drivers with Windows Updates" in the group policy, enable the policy, click OK, and restart the computer.

  • If you are using Windows 11 Home, you may not have access to the Group Policy Editor. In this case, you can use the Registry Editor and follow these steps: open the Registry Editor, go to the following path:


    In the Registry Editor, double-click the SearchOrderConfig DWORD key, change the value from 1 to 0, click OK, and restart the computer.
