The above log is from the 17.11.1 - Nov 10 driver , but the crash logs are same on all drivers on and above this version.
Uningine Valley, Uningine Heaven benchmarks and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
Siege doesn't start, simply crashes. Benchmarks run fine on OpenGL mode or DX 9 mode, only crashes on DX 11 mode immediately on start.
Clean install, used AMD clean install, display driver uninstaller and also ( Just as a sanity check ), a clean windows install.
17.7.2 - to be the last working version. Every driver above that if i remember correctly has this issue,including the Adrenaline Release.
I have already contacted the AMD tech support regarding this, and after around 7 e-mail exchanges with me mentioning repeatedly that I would love to be able to use newer drivers, I was finally requested to use the driver that my manufacturer releases. Unfortunately that driver has horrible performance and is a 17.1.1 driver. Way too old. I am putting the post here after a lot of trials from my side in the hope that someone could maybe help me debug this, it could still be an issue on my side, and help me use newer drivers on my laptop or ( in the unlikely case ) if it is an AMD driver issue, someone from the team could fix it on their end. I know I am using a crappy laptop and a very low end GPU, but any help at all would be very very appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
i got that thing same as you bro.
i use adrenaline 17.12.1 want to play some DMC 4 SE and saints row the third
and i got that 'aticfx32'
i don't know what to do.
Hey, is yours the exact same configuration as mine ?
Because I've already tried the Adrenaline 17.12.1 on my laptop and the error persists. What is your configuration?
Yes I have the same Laptop with A8 6410 -R5 M230 , radeon 8500M
Windows 10 1709 (fall creators update)
This is very interesting. So it might be an issue on my side or could be cause of a different laptop make. Mine is a Lenovo G50-45. If you don't mind, can you attach a dxdiag log please. I would like to see if I can find something from it. And yes, I am on build 1709 too.
Is your laptop a Lenovo make ? Mines a Lenovo G50-45.
Can you try installing Heaven benchmark by unigine and run a DX11 API benchmark? If it crashes on start, then we might have a common problem as you mentioned.
If you want a temporary workaround to our problem, roll back to a 17.7.2 July 27 driver. You can find it on old AMD driver releases page.
mine is ASUS.
The thing problem i believe is aticfx32.dll
I've been testing with and without AMD Switcahble Graphics. You know what the result? its worked without my 2nd GPU (Dual/Switchable Graphics) but sadly a lags for sure. when i switch it to my 2nd GPU on run its crash at startup. I've been test saints row the third cuz there's an option running with DX9 and 10/11
DX9 seems running but lags shuttering (i believe with recent news that adrenaline driver cause this). And then using DX10/11 with switchable graphics no result.
Simple DX11 on my driver doesnt work correctly and keep crash with aticfx32.dll
I stick with the new driver throw.
So now we need to get this to the notice of an AMD representative since it might be a driver fault. Does anyone know how to get this mentioned to some community moderator or AMD representative? Maybe they can help us more with this.
