Why does Windows Update downgrades the display driver for Intel HD 5500?

I have a Lenovo Yoga 500-15IBD notebook with an Intel Core i3-5020 CPU and an integrated Intel HD Graphics 5500. I commonly use the Intel Driver and Support Assistant to update my drivers and it updated the graphics driver a few weeks agto to version 15.40 (20.19.15.5063).

Today Windows Update shows that it want's to install the following driver:

Intel Corporation - Display - 3/8/2017 12:00:00 AM - 20.19.15.4624

I´m wondering why Windows wants to install an OLDER driver version. Is something wrong with the version 20.19.15.5063???

I have installed Windows 10 Pro 1903 Build 18362.418.

Thank you and best regards,

Christof

You must ask Microsoft AND/OR Lenovo these questions.

  1. The latest released by Lenovo version of VGA driver for your laptop is 20.19.15.4835
  2. You may download it from the Lenovo Download Page: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-500-15ibd/download...
  3. You may also use Automatci Driver Update future, on the same download page. Intel DSA is intended for use on Intel products.

I had this issue several times with my HD 5500 powered Acer laptop over the years, i think it is a bug in Windows update.

Anyway, there is a newer driver...
