A few days ago, I noticed my Radeon Settings would not open. Per other questions and responses, it was recommended that I do a clean install of my drivers. After completing the clean install, I noticed that my display adapters were not functioning properly. I looked in my device manager and saw that they were disabled due to running into a problem. I checked looked for other people reporting similar issues and after uninstalling, reinstalling, attempting rollbacks and restores, I've found myself constantly looping back to the same issue. When I try to play my games now, they are running at about .2 frames a second. When I attempt to open Radeon Settings now it gives me the error "Radeon Settings are currently not available. Please try again after connecting AMD graphics." Any help on this matter is appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
For laptops with AMD processors/APU's:
You do not update the discrete graphics card...you update the APU. This updated driver serves both the integrated and discrete graphics. It is the only driver you install. It is important to know the integrated graphics on some APU's...
Did you install the correct driver? Never install the 'minimal setup'.
That would be:
1. Download and save the correct AMD driver. Do not use "automatically detect and install". Download Drivers
2. Download and save DDU https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
3. Disable All anti-virus/anti-malware/anti-anything
4. Delete the contents of the C:/AMD folder of all previous drivers
5. Win10 users..take the necessary steps to prevent/delay Microsoft automatically changing/installing graphics drivers using one of these methods > Windows 10 Forums
