Radeon 7870 can not run Windows 10 1903

Hey There

I have an old GPU - HIS Radeon IceQX HD 7870 Ghz Edition

I have tried few AMD software but no luck. Long ago this GPU was working fine using the Crimson but then I stopped working when I tried to lock or something.

Currently the only working driver for my GPU is Microsoft Basic Display Adapter (very stable) but I can't play game.

My specs:
Motherboard: Steel Legend 450m
Processor: Ryzen 5 2600
RAM: TForce 16 GB
OS: Windows 10 Pro version 1903
GPU: HIS Radeon IceQX HD 7870 Ghz Edition

I did clean installation (every install is done after doing both DDU and AMD removal) of the following version:

19.12.3 (working like 15 mins then going black screen)
19.12.1 (working like 30 mins then going black screen)
19.12.2 (brown screen during installation)

I have updated my windows to the latest Windows 10 1903 and paused updates during install

These are what I was told to do when I contacted AMD support, then they didn't answer me anymore...

Please advise what I should to do to make AMD Adrenaline software work with my GPU?

Appreciate if anyone can advise what I should do next?


 The HD 7870 is compatible with Windows 10 fine. Use the drivers that windows updates installs which are more likely to work properly.
