Greetings!

 

About a half a year ago when I bought this laptop AMD Radeon Settings app would work fine, at least it opened up once clicked.

And then It stopped doing so. Now all I get is an hourglass for a few seconds and then nothing.  I decided to update drivers using AMD autodetect, but when installation is completed you hit the 'restart now' button and it crashes 'not responding' every single time. I have tried all of the dedicated drivers available manually for both GPU's yet with no success. I went through the 'Common error resolving' instruction post with no results as well. All I can do is get to the starting point by updating my R7 via Windows Device Manager, but it is still impossible to open driver settings, as well as to switch between the GPU's for gaming.  Will appreciate any piece of advice on that problem.
