AMD Radeon 530 Constant driver Timeout

Hello mens, i have this Dell Inspiron 5570 Laptop with:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz 1.99GHz:

RAM: 16 GB

Its a 64-Bit OS..

I had no problemos for the past 3 years, but i guess it started after some driver update that i downloaded from the official site..

At first i thought the timeout is caused by the overheat while gaming (Temp goes to around 90°), so i changed the thermal paste.. my all time temps had a drop and the fan speed slowed down as the old thermal paste was dry, but this timeout issue didn't.

After like a few minutes of GTA V on normal graphic settings, i get this "We detected a driver timeout has occurred on your system", 

I can't play other games aswell, i even crash while trying Roblox ;-;
Every game that uses my graphic card crashes/freezes n crashes after a few mins, i have to disable the graphic card an use the normal intel graphics to play 😕
I've tried the clean and reinstall driver method using the DDU method, i even used the selecting STANDARD graphics settings..

DDU'ed and currently use the older version of the driver .. v20.8.1

The Amd graphics settings are set to the very normal ones, i still get this annoying timeout.

After changing the thermal paste, i get 80-86 Degrees temperature.. i don't think thats really the issue, but if it is.. tell me it.



Posting here with a hope that i get rid of this timeout issue in the end 😄

Google how to change TdrDelay and TdrLevel, see if it helps.

Didn't work, driver still crashes after a few mins of gameplay.

Have you tried lowering the GPU frequency in the driver settings?

Yep, lowered it already, doesn't help either

Try using "AMD Cleanup Utility" instead of DDU and go back to the old version again

Friend, I have good news for you. The last decent driver they made was 20.8.3, tries to make use of the DDU, and does a clean install. You will no longer have problems with a black screen, with a crash, or with errors. The company does not know or recommend drivers for its customers.
