After the most recent Windows 10 update, my 8970M has effectively become useless, causing my OS to hang within a few seconds of logging into my Windows 10 account. I've tried to do a clean install of its drivers, but Windows 10 always hangs about half way through the installation, preventing the drivers from being installed correctly, which has forced me to disable the 8970M in device manager. Has anyone else experienced similar problems? If so I'd greatly appreciate some possible solutions.
I use an Alienware 18 it has X2 R9 M290X's....its a rebraded 8970M.... Good luck with this issue! Every time I update my drivers it crashes to a black screen. I have literally tried everything! Im stuck with drivers from 2015.

Hi sky36, what drivers are you currently using? If I could use old drivers that actually worked I'd be happy with that
Did you check for a update from Intel? If there is a update it must be installed first..before the AMD drivers. Use the link here > Laptop graphics update...How to
Also, you must be disconnected from the internet during the whole process. Do not reconnect until you have uninstalled, installed, and rebooted the laptop.
Hello jeffr ! It's great that you posted here, I found a temporary fix using older drivers. I've tried downloading every driver from April-present.Nothing has worked.
18.3.4 from March 2018 has been the latest driver working on my legacy cards.
On a trial basis I did install drivers from December 2017 before installing 18.3.4
Let me know how it goes
I've downloaded drivers 18.3.4
