The Intel GPU is actually part of a "System on a chip" together with the CPU.
If it was dead, your computer would not work at all.
To avoid automatic updates check out:
You didn't mention which Intel driver version you used.
First try drivers from N551VW Driver & Tools | Laptops | ASUS Global
Then try drivers from this list Downloads for Intel® HD Graphics 530
Select OS from right pull-down menu. Hit "show more".
To bypass message "best driver is already installed", "customized computer manufacturer driver" or "computer is not validated" install driver via have disk method as described at:

NB current drivers for Windows 10 require anniversary update or newer
Thank you for your answer, unfortunately I still have the same problem no matter which Intel drivers I install, and no matter how I do it.
I tried with the following :
From Asus website for my computer (N551VW : N551VW Driver & Tools | Laptops | ASUS Global )
And also a few from Intel's website (like 15.60 / 15.45 / etc...)
I also tried to update the driver using some software from Intel, but got the exact same result.
When the drivers install I get a black screen, which switch on and off a few time (exactly the same as when your computer is looking for the right monitor when you plug a new one to your laptop), at some point the black screen shows my cursor which I can move, but then switch again to black screen and finally end up on a blue screen with the error:
with the failed element : igdkmd64.sys
I also tried to install it in Safe Mode. The installation of the drivers gets to the end, says it's installed, but then when I reboot in normal mode I get the same black screen/blue screen situation.
Check the BIOS setting advanced / Graphics configuration as described at N551VW Manual | Laptops | ASUS Global
Wait for a BIOS update announced at ASUS Update of Intel Security Vulnerabilities Issue | Official Support | ASUS Global
Hopefully it contains also an Intel VBIOS/GOP update.

I understand that you are unable to adjust the screen brightness of your computer. I would like to assist you.
First, I would like to know if these issues occurred after a Windows* or driver update. By knowing this, we can attempt to troubleshoot this issue.
Also, please run the Intel® System Support Utility and attach the report to gather basic system configuration.
1.Download the Intel® System Support Utility and save the application to your system.
2.Open the application and click Scan to see system and device information. The Intel® System Support Utility defaults to the Summary View on the output screen following the scan. Click the menu where it says summary to change to Detailed View.
3.To save your scan, click Next and click Save. You can save the file to any accessible location on your computer.
After doing a clean install (Win 10 Pro) on a newly bought ssd and re-installing all ASUS drivers relevant to my machine, I encountered the exact same issue with the Intel GFX driver (tried both 22.214.171.12400 and 10.18.15.4279). The link provided in your previous messages is not working anymore. How would I be able to update my Intel Graphics driver?
My system is an ASUS ROG G551VW (processor - Intel Core i7 6700HQ 2.6 GHz).
