Journeyman III

AMD Ryzen 7 5700G + AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT compatibility


I have a setup that I made a while ago with following components:

CPU: Ryzen 7 5700G

Motherboard: ASUS TUF Gaming B550M

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 3600 MHz CL18 - 8GB x 2

Storage: Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 SSD - 500GB

Power Supply: Gold Rated 650W Cooler Master

This system worked fine until I got a new GPU:

XFX Speedster AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT

My system runs well and gives expected performance at 1080p. But After every few hours of gameplay, or a few minutes of idle (without any games running), my pc hangs, and upon restart, shows that my GPU driver is not installed.


I have updated every driver, BIOS and it still reproduces the issue.

(I do have a non activated Windows 11, but it happened with non activated Windows 10 as well)


What might be the issue? I would appreciate any help with this.

What do you mean by NON ACTIVATED Windows 11?

Forgive me for showing my age, but in earlier versions of Windows, you only had 3 days to activate it.  I am certain that if you are still able to run Windows 10 or 11, you will not be able to install any updates.   I was always under the impression that if you did not activate any version of Windows it would not boot.  If its not activated you may be missing a Windows update that will solve your problem.
