Upgraded GPU to the RX 580 and have been trying to install the latest stable Adrenalin Edition 18.5.1 driver. When I attempt this, my screen just goes black. I have to hard shut down, boot from on-board graphics and roll back the RX 580 driver to the one Windows 10 automatically install. i5 7600k & 8GB RAM
Update Windows 10 throught Windows Update
2) Close Internet Connection
2) Go into Safe boot
3) Run DDU
4) Delete Intel Driver (press Clean and DO NOT restart)
5) Delete AMD driver (press Clean and Restart)
For Steps 4 and 5 , Maybe you can delete them both at the same time - else follow the steps (4 and 5)
6) Install Intel driver - reboot
7) Install AMD driver - reboot
8) Open Internet Connection
I have an RX 580 and have used every driver released in the past year plus. I did not have the best of luck with the 18.5.1 driver. I personally do think the current Adrenalin Edition 18.8.2 Optional is a better driver for me. I would suggest you install it, choose custom install and choose the clean install option. After installing and restarting your computer, go to Radeon Settings / Gaming / Global Settings / Global Wattman /: then down bellow the fan settings is the "Power Limit" slider, default is centered, slide it to it's maximum all the way to the right. Typically this is 50 on RX 580s but may be different, whatever it is just go to the maximum. This should solve the black screen issues and give your game much needed stability. It is not over volting it is still normal operating range. It just raises the power ceiling giving more headroom only when needed. The default settings on many cards are not enough as they are for reference speeds and almost all cards currently sold are over clocked to some degree. So raising the power limit makes them stable.
Good Luck and report back if this does not help. There are other settings we can change but may not be needed if this does the trick.
Is 4) Delete Intel Driver (press Clean and DO NOT restart) really needed now?
You can only delete AMD driver but if you want to update the intel drivers too its good to apply this step too
Ok, understood. Thanks.
Already tried that one mate and it's just the same story. I'll be honest and say that it's the ReLive I'm wanting? Otherwise, I'd just keep the driver that automatically installs so I had a look on guru3d at the selection of old Adrenalin drivers and I have it stable and well at 18.4.1 just now so I don't know if I keep trying each one released after that at a time? Or wait until they release a new driver and try that one but as for now, it seems fine and I have the ReLive I wanted.
I'll give this a try and report back.
