Where can I download old drivers for a T440s (HD4400 graphics)

#1 Post by bblake » Thu Sep 13, 2018 6:14 pm

My Thinkpad T440s, about 4.5 years old, recently updated the graphics driver automatically to 20.19.15.4963.
(Processor: Intel i5-4200U, with integrated Intel Graphics HD4400).
I'm running Windows 10 64 bit having upgraded from the original Windows 7.

I have an old copy of Paint Shop Pro, which then stopped working. I've had this problem on a different machine (not Lenovo) and the solution was just to roll back the graphics driver to the previous working version.
But the option to roll back the driver is greyed out in Device Manager.

How can I find a copy (to download) of the previous graphics driver for my Thinkpad? I've searched the Lenovo Service site, tried Google etc - nothing shows. Alternatively I can find old versions of drivers for HD4400 graphics on the Intel website, but as always, Intel warns to use the manufacturer supplied driver if possible. I've looked at the supplied drivers on the machine, and can find no trace of any older graphics driver on the machine. Nor do I have a record of what the previous driver level was.

Can anyone help me locate the previous HD4400 Thinkpad driver?
Regards,

Brendan Blake.

Thanks. I downloaded an old driver from the Intel site suggested, but I was not allowed to install it.
I eventually worked out that since the old driver had once been on the machine and working, it was possible to locate it and re-install it, using Device Manager.

Using Device Manager:
- Select Intel HD Graphics xxx under Display Adapters within Device manager.
- Select the driver TAB.
- Click Disable Device, but don't yet reboot.
- Click Update Driver
- When asked How do you want to search for drivers select Browse my computer for driver software.
- On the next screen, select Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer.
- You can now see both the most recent driver, and the older driver which I need to roll back to. Click the older driver and install it.
This worked for me, and after a reboot, I am now back to the old driver with everything working fine. FIXED.

My only worry is that the driver might get updated automatically a second time. I've been trying to tweak windows update settings to avoid this!

Brendan Blake.

Depending which O/S you un (win7, win10) You can set the "updates to "Never install updates" and do it manually.

You could also set it to "notify me but do not install", which will allow you to untick the graphics driver, highlight it, right click on it, then click "hide update". After that, it will NOT install, unless you instruct it to install, after first "restoring" it (by using "restore hidden updates).

If you are using win 10, there is a way to stop auto-download, auto-install of updates.
