Drivers crash on every reboot, have to reinstall every time.

I have tried many different driver versions. This only happened after I upgraded to the most recent (non beta) driver from 16.1. Now i have gone back and forth as far back as catalyst 15.x drivers and still have the same problem. If my pc freezes in a game (which never had any issues with 16.1) i have to reset my computer, or even if i power it down normally and boot it back up, i get greeted with a message stating, "No amd graphics driver installed or is not functioning properly. Please install the amd driver appropiate for your amd software"

What can I do to stop this from occuring every time I turn on my PC?

This is on 2x 280x in crossfire
windows 10.
i7 4790k,

16gb ddr13 1600mhz ram

a few SSD drives..

Re: Drivers crash on every reboot, have to reinstall every time.

Please try the steps below which i believe should resolve your issue.

1. Run the Windows self check tool to check scan and automatically repair any corrupt files found in Windows. There is a guide on how to do it here.  What you need to do is run an elevated command prompt (elevated means run it as administrator) and type SFC /SCANNOW. This will generate a statement indicating if errors were found the Operating system and if they were fixable.

2. Make sure you have installed Microsfot NetFramework and Visual C++ 2013. These should be installed already, but they can become damaged, need repairing or reinstalling.

3. Update Windows. Install all available critical, recommended and optional updates. Often Netframework and Visual C are included in the recommended or optional updates Windows provides. Windows should always be fully up to date before installing our drivers!

4. Use DDU to sweep the system of AMD drivers.

5. Install the latest Crimson 16.4.1 drivers once the above is completed.
