Performed clean install of the previous Chipset driver while 22.3.1 was still installed and driver timeouts still occurred.

Performed clean installs of both Previous GPU/Chipset Drivers and completely stable, no timeouts occurred. 

When viewing Reliability History and viewing the Driver Timeout event this is what is listed

Any ideas on what could be causing the driver timeouts?


Thanks for the post. Do the driver timeouts occur without a web browser running on any of your displays while you play games?

Yes, Driver timeouts are occurring even if Google Chrome isn't active on any monitor.

Although noticed on the latest 22.3.2 Driver, timeouts were not occurring at all but, text and possibly coloring looked off while using Google Chrome and AMD Instant Replays were having audio sync issues while on 22.3.2. It does seem though the Driver Timeouts are fixed on 22.3.2 but, it brings along it's own issues. 


Have you tried to use DDU then reinstall 22.3.1?

Boot Windows into safe mode without network driver, use the DDU software with clean EVERYTHING option for AMD GPU including audio, reboot normally, then try reinstall Adrenaline.

I don't know how extensive you setup your game profile and whatnot but if anything went wrong during GPU driver install, DDU is highly recommended to get Windows to clean slate.
