I have gigabyte r9 280x 2nd edition, i5 3570k. I had some big problems about catalyst at first with my pc. For some reason I couldnt install it, then installed old drivers somehow, then deleted them, and for some reason system wouldnt want to install new catalyst if I remember right, lost most of the day with reinstalling windows few times and everything...so when I finally managed to get it working, I havent updated it for around a year now, since I didnt wanna go through all that trouble again.
I have my system backed up, by that windows back up, although its really taking a lot of space on my drive, and I dont even know what is backed up there only OS or everything from my SSD on which windows, games and programs are, I did get it back once months ago, when something crashed on my pc. I dont even know is windows backing those files periodically or should I do it?
So in order to get those new drivers, and hopefully avoiding trouble of reinstalling most of my system, what is the proper way to do it? Do I need to manually remove catalyst and old drivers and then install new ones, or? I think I did that first time, and resolution went crazy and I had trouble with pc detecting my GPU after that for some reason.
Try first to just install them over the existing drivers. Don't delete anything. Report back if that didn't work and we will do it a different way.
