Radeon Rx 580 Graphics card driver keeps failing? Or uninstalling?

So recently I have been having an issue regarding the drivers in my GPU. I have been using the Radeon RX 580 for around 1 year, and have had no issues with it until now. At one moment everything is fine. My games run well, and at great framerates. Nothing is overclocked, and all works well. However, as soon as I shut down my pc for the night, and power it on, I get a few signs that something is wrong. The first being that the sleep function on my PC is gone. I don't mean greyed out, and unclickable, I mean straight up gone. likes its not there. The next sign is in regards to opening games. Ill get message prompts that say, "DX11 feature level 10.0 is required to run the engine"  For games like Minecraft, Ill get a different message "glfw error 65542 wgl" On Many occasions I have uninstalled and reinstalled my drivers with the latest versions. Then everything seems to work normally. I reinstall my Radeon Software, and set up the background recording. Then the next day, I repeat the same process. Its been happening for about 2 weeks now. I've even disabled windows automatic driver updates, but that still doesn't seem to fix the issue. I don't want to spend money on a new graphics card right now, because 1. I cant. and 2. they are expensive, or none are in stock.

Can anyone help me with my dilemma. Ill take anything at this rate.

Hi I'm afraid I can't help you, but I have the same issue. Did you find a solution?


I believe so... I'm not entirely sure what it was that fixed the issue, but what I ended up doing was this.

I started by using DDU to uninstall my current graphics drivers.  And after that, I basically rummaged through my PC, and deleted all files that were directly related to my AMD GPU software. So I reinstalled the entire program, and I have been clean for nearly a month now. 

Kind of a lengthy process but All turned out well in the end
