     Hello, after I install my AMD Drivers to either C:/AMD or for 13.251 to C:/Program Files x86 then I go into the Control Panel/ Device Manager I attempt to update my drivers through the display adapter tab, the only Driver there is the standard one microsoft installs into most computers for a basic graphics setup. I right click on the tab and update my driver software, then in which I manually find the drive I need through by browsing and being shown a list of all possible software options. I then click on the Have Disk tab and browse to find either the AMD 13.251 or 14.4 drivers then I select my designated graphics card in the computer which is the AMD R9 M290X which is apparently a rebadged AMD HD 8970 Graphics. But when I proceed to install this update manually I get a pop up that says that the correct driver has been located but it is not compatible with my current version of windows. I have been looking for possible solutions on youtube/ google but have not been so successful. This problem with the driver first started out today when I got on my PC and it said that the graphic driver is either not functional or non existent but it was there in my Device Manager with my Intel 4600 Driver. I decided to uninstall both and start from scratch. Are there any possible solutions to the incompatible windows problem or that the PC cannot identify a Driver.

 

PC Specs:

Processor: Intel Core i7-47I0MQ

GPU: AMD Radeon R9 M290X with 4GB GDDR5
