Video card is XFX Radeon R7 265. Windows 10. ASUS M5A99X PRO R2.0. 16 GB DDR3. Samsung 1T 850 PRO.
These crimson drivers are terrible — 16.*
I never had these problems before crimson was installed.
Crashes in low temps, low CPU load, low drive activity, in 2D, in any browser playing videos, in 3D in COH2.
I am stuck on 16.5.1. Selecting 16.3.2 to roll back does not work. I need to clean install. This is just so sad.
I think that I updated 16.3.2 to 16.4.1 and started getting crash-restore cycles. Next I updated to 16.5.1. Crash-restore cycles remained. Adding the TdrDelay variable set to 8 seconds in the registry was no help. I do not believe the crash-recovery period got any longer (about 2s). So I uninstalled 16.5.1 and in the process my USB drivers got corrupted. Try operating Windows 10 without a mouse. In the past accelerator keys made it easy to be a keyboard jockey. But now in the time of web pages trying to operate a pulldown combo control without a mouse is impossible. Reinstalling the USB drivers seemed to go ok but no devices could be recognized. An attempt to reinstall 16.3.2 did not work.
On Sunday I decided to use a restore point that I had manually created about two weeks before. The restore worked but reported an unspecified error. The video driver was back to 16.3.2 and the USB 2 ports worked. I had to plug a USB 3 drive into a USB 2 port first to be mounted. Then I could mount the drive through any of the four USB 3 ports. I ran the system file check. It finished with no errors.
Since then there has not been another crash-restore on this machine. And to be sure I created another restore point. This was the first time a video driver update boned me. I will be more carefull from now on. I noticed 16.4.1 is no longer available. Good.
