Screen looks blurry/hazy after drivers installed

Specs:

  • RX 480
  • Windows 10 64bit
  • Crimson Relive 16.2.2
  • E-Motion 1080p 60hz LED TV
  • MSI Z97 PC Mate 1150 Motherboard
  • Intel Core I7 4790
  • Antec HCG 850M PSU
  • 16GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM

Issue:

  • After upgrading my Radeon 7990 to an RX 480, the monitor has become very blurry. I am using HDMI to connect the RX 480 to the TV, which I am using a monitor.
  • When using the Microsoft Basic Display driver, there is no issue. The screen looks fine. I have tried several drivers were released between September and now. None of them fix the issue.
  • I've tried messing around with overscan/scaling settings. None seem to fix it. This cannot be a hardware issue, since the monitor works fine when there are no drivers installed.

Any Ideas?

Re: Screen looks blurry/hazy after drivers installed

I've tried the steps in that thread:

  • Morphological filtering is already turned off.
  • The DPI Fix tool did not fix the problem.
  • Cleartype does not fix the problem.
  • Changing the DPI settings just makes the text look bigger.

Re: Screen looks blurry/hazy after drivers installed

Did the following:

  • Used the AMD Clean uninstall tool, and reinstalled the drivers.
  • Checked that the monitor was set to native resolution
  • Reset any settings in the monitor itself
  • Installed the earliest drivers with RX 480 support
  • Installed the latest stable driver, as well as the latest beta driver.

Still no success...

Re: Screen looks blurry/hazy after drivers installed

My first guess would have been overscan. What refresh rate did you set under monitor?

It's set to 60Hz in the Windows settings. I did notice that on the "Panel Information" in the Radeon Additional Settings set the Maximum Refresh rate to 75Hz. I posted both screenshots here:

Re: Screen looks blurry/hazy after drivers installed

Hold on , how did you manage to get that screen and how did you manage to open the Radeon Additional setting ? My screen have been blurry as hell like many others since the recent updates but most of our problems come from the fact that we cannot open the CCC , you on the other hand have access to the setting i need to fix my screen. Did you just click on Radeon Additional Setting and it work for you ? If so are you using 16.12.2 or 16.12.1 ? If you are using any version prior to these 2 , where did you find it ? That would help me a lot.

What is the exact model of your tv? Trying to find a manual for it.
