how to disable wattman

Jump to solution

Can we disable wattman? It is of no use to gamers per your own community postings.   Ever since your adrenlain software camew ouit we have crash after crash because of wattman. Can we just download the basic drivers with-out it?

You can choose to not enable wattman, or to revert it from radeon settings > preferences > restore factory defaults.

And/or you can download driver only using the custom install option and uncheck radeon settings, etc...

Ryzen 5 5600x, B550 aorus pro ac, Hyper 212 black, 2 x 16gb F4-3600c16dgtzn kit, Aorus gen4 7000s 2tb, Nitro+RX6900XT, RM850, Win.10 Pro..

I will NEVER BUY ANOTHER ATI CARD AGAIN nor tell my family and friends to buy one!!!! Adrenalin is the crappiest software ever written! I do not enable wattman on my RX580 card yet it keeps crashing or stopping my windows 10 system from booting. I keep getting the wattman error after rebooting and no after uninstalling adrenalin and running the clean up utility I have no issues until it reinstall shitty Adrenalin!! Bring back the basic video drivers!!!!! I had no issues with the last driver from Dec 2018.

This is the first AMD card I've ever owned, I've always went for Nvidia but due to lack of funds I got an RX 5700 instead...it's given me problems thusfar for sure but not any problems ice never had with Nvidia cards. In fact I don't have to worry about updating my graphics driver every month or so...

I still have problems with this, suddenly my computer crashes randomly and I have to restart it, I have tried them all, some say that you have to uninstall programs like msiafterburn, my question is the amd program automatically manages the fans for you?

I did a google seach and found an old driver from early 2019 that seems to work. My system goes to sleep but won't wake up.

Had that problem quite a few drivers back too, my PC would freeze after waking up from sleeping state, however after updating that doesn't happen but then again the crashing started which is far worse...

 

just a minute in firefox like 5 min ago freeze with AMD driver restarting and worse is just after restarting my PC while typing this post AMD drivers froze again FFS...

 

Wattman is pointless, when I had it installed it said wattman crashed quite a few times, now I just installed minimum drivers without it but the drivers keep crashing the same way so wattman is not even the problem here and I never had it active anyway...

 

PS: AMD simply broke my RX580 after like 3 or 4 updates ago while before was good, the only fix is go back and loose all the latest stuff
