Driver causing my Dual Monitor to stop working.

I purchased a NEW Yogo 7i and ThinkPad USBC dock station recently and have had problems getting my Dual Monitor setup to remain functioning!  With the help of my Lenovo Premium+ service I was finally able to keep it running for about a Month.  A few days ago Windows pushed an UPDATE and Dual Monitor STOPPED.  I performed a "Recovery" from just before the update and my Dual Monitor = Working!  Short lived however...   Long story short my Intel Iris Xe Graphics driver keeps reverting to a driver that doesn't work.  How do I permanently remove this driver from my system.  Uninstall doesn't work, within 24hrs it replaces the driver that works for the one that doesn't.  So far my Lenovo Premium+ team hasn't been able to solve this.

Driver that works = 31.0.101.4575

Driver that FAILS = 31.0.101.4502

Hi Isaac, 

I appreciate your response, but do I need to do this when the non-working driver "xx.4502" is being used or can I do it when the WORKING driver "xx.4575" is running? 

BTW, what I don't understand is that Today the driver never changed, and my dual monitor has been working!  Why the past (3) days it kept reverting back to xx.4502 and today it STOPPED; at least for now????

Hello @glpuck

 

Thank you for your reply.


It's advisable to consider utilizing the most up-to-date driver, particularly the latest one provided by Intel in this context. Additionally, have you encountered a recurrence of the issue, or did the driver revert to the previous version? If so, can we conclude that the problem has been effectively addressed?

Hi Isaac,

I wanted to give it a few days before saying it is "addressed".  Why I'm concerned is that I didn't do anything new that would've changed the situation that I was in for the previous 3 to 4 days.  It all of a sudden STOPED reverting back to "xx.4502", and as long as it remains "xx.4575" then we know it works.  So, my problem is resolved but is it FIXED...

However, I really appreciate you taking the time in responding to my cry for help!

Thanks again,

Gary
