AMDRyzenMasterDriver failed to start

Hello, my laptop has been BSoDing for a while now, and when I went to check the windows event viewer, it gives an error and says "The AMDRyzenMasterDriver service failed to start due to the following error: A certificate was explicitly revoked by its issuer". Please help!


Processor: AMD Ryzen 9 4900H with Radeon Graphics 

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2060

I can provide more if needed.

Ryzen Master is not compatible on Laptops since that program can be used to Over or Under clock the processor.

Normally Ryzen Master will give you an error saying that the CPU is incompatible.

At Gitlabs there is a Ryzen Master type program for laptops you can use called Ryzen Controller:

Here is the home page for Ryzen controller:

NOTE: if you are just using it to monitor the laptop then that is a good way to use it but if you going to use it to change the parameters of the CPU (Overclocking or Underclocking) then that is not a good idea since laptops are engineered to work within a strict Thermal and Power range. Over or Under clocking the CPU might cause the laptop to exceed it Thermal or power range and end up damaging the laptop.
