Radeon HD 5450 Driver Update Leads to Boot Loop

So I am running the Radeon HD 5450 GPU and the current driver version is 8.872.0.0 dated 07/07/2011


Since the driver is too old, I thought of updating the driver version and downloaded the latest Catalyst Suite from AMD. However, every time I try to upgrade the driver, my PC goes into a boot loop and after a few times of boot loop, it gets me to the login screen.

My config:
FX 6100

Corsair 8 GB RAM

Crucial 256 GB SSD (primary)

Any idea why this keeps happening?

You have a choice of these drivers. No more drivers will be available...Legacy graphics card.

Thanks for your response. My windows was completely updated before I even updated the driver and still got the boot loop.

Please advise
