A8 R5 7410 Windows 10, problem with drivers.

Hi!, My laptop:

HP 15-af002ax

AMD A8-7410, with R5 graphics, 8gb RAM, new hdd. etc.

Years ago, when I bought this, it was runnning perfect.... But, when I updated it to Win 10 I never found a correct driver, because AMD lets always the old stuff in the basket.

I searched for specific APU driver, R5, A8, for desktop, for laptop, (the result is always the same mdf driver, it doesnt mather if you have an R7 580, or a 270, or an A4... ) AMD has One driver for 58 graphic cards.

The problem is that, the laptop is running awesome without AMD driver, but no videogames or has delay opening heavy things, like videos, youtube, etc etc... So, I need the graphic driver.... but when I try a driver, (I tryed like, 6 differents drivers, from 2015 to 2020, from AMD web site and from HP specific driver for THIS laptop), the screen is freeze for a second, then, 4 free seconds of fluid run, but then again, 1sec freeze, 3 Ok.

As this notebook has 2 graphics, I had to disable the 2nd one. the dedicated graphics, because when I do that, the computer still running like without drivers and alt least with that I can still searching another drivers to test, again, and again......

¿Any answer to that problem with this driver in windows 10?

 Thanks.

AMD has 2 drivers

1. is the normal driver for ALL supported Architectures (GCN and RDNA)
2. Legacy driver for all old Architectures (Terascale etc)

PC: R7 2700X @PBO + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS

try Snappy Driver Installer download | SourceForge.net 

i use it when i run into problems identifying a driver or type of driver needed.

Update all except the gpu drivers write down the type of gpu driver and version and try to download that type from amd support site.

IF that fails you can always try the recommanded driver by snappy.

NEVER EVER USE SUCH A DRIVER INSTALL SOFTWARE!

simply read what hardware you have - go to the companies driver page and download the right driver for your OS!
