What is happening to my computer? I just updated my display drivers?!

Hi, I have a problem. I was trying to update my computer, current driver is 18.10.1. I tried to update it to the Adrenaline 2019 Edition drivers, each of them resulting in a BSoD. I can just uninstall the driver and go back to 18.10.1. Why does this happen? It only happens when I go to 2019 edition drivers, and yes all of them ends the same.

Detailed Specs

CPU: Ryzen 3 2200G

GPU: Integrated Vega 8

OS: Win10 64bit Professional


Baseline for Comparison: 18.10.1 (before the 2019 Adrenalin drivers) 

Vs All Adrenalin 2019 Drivers including 19.3.1

RAM: 8GB @ 2666

Motherboard: MSI B45 Pro M2

BIOS: MS-7B84v24

PSU: DeepCool DE500 v2

Issue: The 18.10.1 was my most stable driver when I downloaded from AMDs site for the 2019 drivers for the 2200G it went without problem. When I installed it it went also well. Except after the restart, it blue screened and showed error message DXGKernel_Fatal_Error this always ends the same to every driver past 18.10.1. 

I can't tell you about the experience it would be in games since it crashes before booting to Windows.


I forgot that my Display is a BenQ GL2070 via DVI-D. And I'm currently compressing files due to the size limit

Usually recommended to clean install to the Annual edition updates from older version.

That is manually download/save the new full driver pkg direct from AMD driver download page.

Then start install(extract) from the downloaded pkg > choose custom > clean install.

Install to main OS drive.

Your Vid is too painful to watch, so I ignored anything on it.
