Adrenalin 2020 Edition 19.12.2 Black Screen After Log In

Upon installing Adrenalin 2020 Edition 19.12.2 and logging in I receive a black screen with cursor. Ctrl+alt+delete does nothing and following the removal of the update in safe-mode using the cleanup utility the screen is still black.

Installing the update following running the AMD cleanup utility allowed me to finally get in. AMD drivers are a joke and for anyone for anyone who's not tech savvy they could be catastrophic. I would not recommend them to friends or family. Pay more for NVIDIA, it's not worth the driver hassle.

I also had this on Radeon VII when I had my second monitor plugged in...

Clean Installed with no problem here (but us long term users know to clean install annual updates).

Guess AMD should be more specific on this in release notes (in the first sentence of release notes so noobs can't whinge about their lack of pc knowledge).

The all knowing goodplay knows to make complete system backups in case his graphics driver bricks his entire PC. I guess not everyone has the superior foresight and possibly expects a major company to test their drivers before releasing them. Our bad.

Never had a graphics driver 'brick' a pc.

But I do quarterly backups only because of Win.... stuff ups(and have iso of last/latest build).

You supply no INFORMATION REQUIRED WHEN POSTING A QUESTION, so who knows what/where it went wrong.

So be forward with some relevant info that points to amd problem and maybe someone will offer other suggestions.

Your turn...…….

How about instead of insulting people you supply useful information to "noobs" so that they can try and solve their issues without needless condescending comments that do not add too discussion.

And your earlier post explains what/how/if you solved it...you could share for other users.
