    Windows 10 and R9 290 driver problem

    marceljan4

      hey guys,,

       

      Since i installed Windows 10, im having GPU crashes after e few minutes of playing any game. The screen turns black (sleep mode), and my GPU starts cooling like an idiot.

       

      I already tried other drivers, Windows 8.1 version and beta versions, and noting seems to work.

       

      Any suggestions?

          1. Using steps 1-5 , manually select your graphics drivers HERE and download/save to your desktop. Do not use automatic find and install.

           

          2. Remove old drivers using 'uninstall a program' in the computer control panel****   

           

           

              FOR COMPUTERS WITH INTEL PROCESSORS***

           

          Select AMD Catalyst Install manager and EXPRESS uninstall all AMD software including the install manager. Reboot. Install the new driver suite. Reboot.

           

           

           

              FOR COMPUTERS WITH AMD PROCESSORS***

           

          Select AMD Catalyst Install manager and selectively uninstall the graphics drivers and CCC only. Reboot. Install the new driver suite. Reboot.

           

           

          Note: Disable all anti-virus/ anti-malware/ anti-anything while performing the installation. Very important.

           

           

           

           

          Please note that if you choose "Custom Install" the new drivers, it will automatically install the 'Gaming Evolved' (raptr) app in addition to the drivers. If you do not wish to have raptr on your computer, choose 'Custom' install the new drivers and uncheck the box next to 'Gaming Evolved'.

           

           

           

          This is a proven installation method that will work 99% of the time for everybody. However, there is the 1% who will need to use the 'Clean' install method. Use this if you run into issues.
