It takes a noticeably longer time to restart or shutdown with the new drivers. As soon as 19.5.1 is uninstalled, the problem goes away. I reverted back to 19.4.3.
Win 10 - 1809
Definitely seems something internal to the card, because Windows shutdowns down normally, then it takes inordinate amount of time at black screen. Can even see the monitor report signal lost.
Startup is normal.
If no one else has the problem, I might try reinstalling or using DDU to wipe amd drivers.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have confirmed that it's not PC specific issue. I did a clean reset of another PC (with different motherboard vendor/CPU) to 1903. Installed the latest AMD drivers, and the same issue on it. It was a fresh win 10 install and update to 1903.
So it's either an issue with my specific GPU or more likely, AMD messed up something with VIIs in the 19.5.x.
Use DDU and perform a clean install of the AMD drivers.
Also, try disabling 'Fast start'
Deciding whether to bother with Fast Startup actually takes longer than turning it on or off. First, open up your power options by hitting Windows+X or right-clicking your Start menu and selecting Power Options. In the Power Options window, click “Choose what the power buttons do.”
If this is the first time you’ve messed with these settings, you’ll need click “Change settings that are currently unavailable” to make the Fast Startup option available for configuration.
Scroll to the bottom of the window and you should see “Turn on fast startup (recommended),” along with other shutdown settings. Just use the check box to enable or disable Fast Startup. Save your changes and shut down your system to test it out.
If you don’t see the option at all, it means hibernation is not enabled on your machine. In this case, the only shutdown options you’ll see are Sleep and Lock. The quickest way to enable hibernation is to close the power settings window and then hit Windows+X and open Command Prompt (Admin). At the Command Prompt, type the command:
powercfg /hibernate on
After turning hibernate on, run through the steps again and you should see both the Hibernate and Fast Startup options.
Thanks. I have long had hibernate and sleep disabled and turned off. Fast boot and Fast Start also disabled.
For more detail, DDU did not change anything. No fast startup or fast boot options are enabled. The sequence of events is thus
1. All services stopped
2. Black screen
3. Monitor reports no signal
4. Black screen
5. BIOS startup screen
#3 and #4 take 15 to 20+ extra seconds to perform.
I have had verbose shutdown setting enabled for a long time in windows 10, and it's past the service unloading. This is new behavior with this driver.
Thanks. I looked into this, and it's contributing factor to this.
I have reverted back to 19.4.3, and provided driver feedback.
Wouldn't hurt to report it to Microsoft? How to report Windows 10 bugs to Microsoft?
