Could you please clarify...
To install these Beta drivers "releases", does a Win 8.1 user need to deconfigure the driver signature verification?
Just updated to 15.9, having issues with all flash videos (in any browser, but i use mainly firefox). It starts playing fine for maybe 10 seconds and then just freezes and browser screen goes black. When i switch to other tabs they go black too. Only restarting browser helps. Tried playing with hw acceleration settings but it didn't help. I never skipped an update and never had an issue. I have 260X GPU.
I submitted a report but decided to write here just to make sure.
Firefox version 41.0 is having issues. Rolling back to the previous version solved it for me. I am not saying that the drivers are not at fault, although mine works fine on all browsers, but maybe it's the glitchy Firefox.
Got some strange driver crash on Windows 10 64 bit with 15.9 Beta driver on my R9 290 GPU. Check the driver pls, i think is some problem with this one.
I found the problem, my video memory go up to full 4096 MB and my card crash with this 15.9 Beta driver if watching a youtube video in Firefox for example, this is very bad, i hope you fix it, going back to 15.7.1 i got no problem. So this is a driver problem not Firefox.
Currently downloading 15.9 beta. I hope this fixes driver crashing issues on A8-7600 + R7 240 on dual graphics (Win10 Pro 64bit) when running anything with OpenGL. Will post it here again and use the AMD issue reporting form again if it still isn't fixed (problem started and already reported 2 months ago).
Edit: Done with downloading and installation. Once I rebooted my PC I knew there was a problem. I waited for more than 10 minutes but it was stuck on a black screen and a loading cursor. I restarted it again and I am unable to reach the log in screen. I restarted and disabled the APU, I logged in and saw that AMD Gaming Evolved video recording with Plays.tv got disabled.
Using only the R7 240 graphics card, I was able to run most of my other games excluding Dota2. As expected there is a drop in performance compared to when it was running dual graphics. Metro Redux is no longer stable 60FPS and Bioshock Infinite got locked to 30FPS. Only thing that had better performance was Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;birth 2 (OpenGL).
I tried running it on dual graphics again but it just doesn't work and gets stuck while loading a game (Computer won't even boot if it is enabled). My computer finally froze when I tried running Euro Truck Simulator 2. I will roll back my drivers AGAIN back to Omega 14.12. I will report the issue through AMD issue reporting form later. I wonder how many months I will count before they finally fix these issues.
Update: The freaking roll back failed. The driver for APU was still version 15 and afterwards CCC is no longer installed. What the hell happened here? I had rolled back and forth from these failures series of 5 CCC installer and this is the worse thing I have experienced. Rolling back was really simple when I did it earlier but now, windows update comes in and make things worse.
