Microsoft and Intel discovered that on some computers with Intel display drivers users might have issues adjusting their display's brightness because of a driver compatibility issue after applying the Windows 10 May 2019 Update. "After updating to Window 10, version 1903, brightness settings may sometime appear as if changes applied took effect, yet the actual display brightness doesn't change," says Microsoft. To make sure that user experience is not affected, Microsoft has added a compatibility hold on devices with certain incompatible Intel display drivers from being offered the latest Windows 10 release until the issue is resolved. Until a resolution for the driver compatibility issue will be offered with an upcoming Windows 10 release, Microsoft advises all users to "not attempt to manually update using the Update now button or the Media Creation Tool until this issue has been resolved." In addition, a range of Intel Display Audio device drivers has also been found to cause problems leading to higher than normal battery drain. Microsoft also says that, in order to prevent any issues stemming from incompatible Intel Display Audio device drivers, a compatibility hold has been put in place to block the Windows 10 May 2019 Update from being offered until users have installed updated device drivers. Affected Windows users are advised to not apply the Windows 10 May 2019 Update manually before updating their system's Intel Display Audio device drivers and the update is being automatically provided via the Windows Update system.
