Amd HD5670 driver crashes after update

Question asked by spanner on Jul 23, 2015

HI I've recently been testing Ark Survival Evolved and following the latest catalyst update 15.7 I've begun to suffer frequent display driver crashes on loading.

I had had the same problem on occasion with the previous driver although slightly altering the timeout detection in the registry did help to remove the issue completely. I did try the same trick with the driver contained in 15.7 but driver crashes still occur while loading.  I know its certainly not the best card for the task, but I'm not after epic quality or frame rates, just a driver that lets me load without issues.

I see that many new games have been optimised, could something be done for Ark Survival Evolved.?

Any chance that this problem could be resolved or a fix suggested?

In order to get back in and feed my dinosaurs I've rolled back to the previous driver, which with the aforementioned registry tweak loads fine.
