Windows Update is probably serving up the latest Intel Video drivers that are messing up your HDMI settings. I had the same issue and had to manually download the ones directly from Intel to get my HDMI setup working. I've chosen to ignore any future updates since everything is working fine and I lack the patience to troubleshoot in case the updates reset my HDMI settings again.
