I recently downloaded and attempted to install amd-catalyst-15.7.1-win10-64bit.

 

My card is a Radeon R9 270. I've had it for almost a year.  It was working fine. No problems at all.

 

Until I downloaded this patch.

 

Since downloading the patch the card is not recognized.  I have been tearing my hair out for the last four days trying to find out what has gone wrong.

 

I've gotten some help on another thread, but it seems that the people who were responding do not have any workable solutions.

 

I feel as if this patch has killed my card and it WILL cost me money now.

 

I will have to go buy another expensive video card. This one cost me about $250 this time last year. Think I'll buy another Radeon card?  Hah, not a chance.

 

My question is, does AMD have any responsibility for foisting a patch on people that destroys their ability to use their video card?
