I need help with my Drivers, When i tried installing AMD's newest drivers, my APU is unable to function properly and i cant play any games, what do i do?

Jump to solution

My Asus X550IU uses the APU R7 graphics (integrated) and the added RX 460m AMD Graphics card.

Just recently i installed the latest drivers but then after i restarted my screen looked flashy, and it was extremely weird, i didnt know what else to do but boot it up safely.

Alas it worked screen was back to normal but graphics card werent. so i decided to uninstall the drivers and reinstalled them nothing has changed.

With laptop APU's you don't update the driver..you update the APU. That driver serves the integrated and the discrete graphics chips.

What is important here is the APU version you have...which you don't mention. You say you have the Asus X55oiu laptop...which is a series and has may configurations. Please supply the exact model of your laptop...or what APU it has.

Roll back to the previous drivers that worked for you. Go to Device Manager > display adapters > AMD > properties (rt click) > driver > roll back to previous version.

Or go to the laptop manufacturer's website/support and install the graphics drivers from them.
