Re: AMD Radeon driver update breaks opengl every damn time

I guess I don't know what to do besides use a restore point and hope it doesn't screw up again, or use a restore point and never update the drivers again.

Or get a Dell and never turn back.

Re: AMD Radeon driver update breaks opengl every damn time

Two months and still no other suggestions, so I'm gonna assume the answer is "AMD products are unfixable garbage" like I originally thought, and never purchase anything that has the words AMD or Radeon on it ever again. How these guys are still in business is beyond me.

Re: AMD Radeon driver update breaks opengl every damn time

Sorry to hear you are still having problems.

Try this basic method of installing the AMD driver and see if it makes any difference:

install AMD driver :

1) Download the correct AMD Full Set of drivers from AMD Support. Make sure your Windows is fully updated via Windows Update. Windows MUST be fully updated because the latest AMD Drivers requires all  the latest "Optional" and "Recommended" Updates to be installed.

2) Use Windows Uninstall to uninstall current AMD driver and software. Then use DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) V17.0.9.0 Released. - Wagnardsoft Forum in safe mode to eliminate all traces of the current AMD driver and software from your computer.

Delete C:\AMD folder from the Root Directory. Reboot.

3) Go to Device Manager and click on "Display Adapter" and make sure you are on the MS Basic Display Adapter. If not, uninstall the AMD driver using Properties.

4) Try reinstalling the AMD FULL SET OF DRIVERS that you manually downloaded. Make sure to disable the Internet to prevent Windows Update from installing a newer version. Also configure Windows to prevent it from updating Drivers via Windows Update. Also it has been mentioned to disable any Anti-virus programs before installation of AMD Drivers.

5) If the new AMD drivers installs and works correctly, delete again the C:\AMD folder from the Root directory. To save space on the HDD.

6)Enable both the internet and Anti-Virus program (if applicable).

7) Go back to Device Manager and check to be sure your GPU card driver is working and identified correctly.

This is the latest Mobile APU Driver for your laptop: APU

What is strange that Asus Support doesn't have any Asus Graphic drivers at their site unless it is part of the AMD CHIPSET.  X555DG Driver & Tools | Laptops | ASUS Global .

Found this website where you can download the VGA + CHIPSET for your laptop from Asus. VGA : Information & Support: VGA Driver ASUS X555D (X555DA / X555DG) | AMD Radeo Graphics Card Softw...  .

Does seem like the CHIPSET at Asus Support includes the VGA Driver. Anyways, you can download it from the above link. Try installing that first and see if your video is recognized without any errors. Than try and install the latest driver from AMD Support from the above link that I posted. IF still having problems than uninstall the AMD driver and reinstall the Asus VGA driver so that your laptop will be working normally again. It is possible that your laptop is not compatible with the latest AMD Drivers unless you are doing something wrong.

Generally it is best to use the Laptop manufacturer's customized Graphic drivers first.
