Why do you offer support when it is clearly obvious AMD doesn't care?

Why does AMD offer technical support when they clearly couldn't care less?  A month ago, I turned in a service ticket for help with my AMD R7-240 graphics card and the updated driver.  My computer would lock up during game play and would have to do a hard reboot to bring the system back up.  I've answered every inquiry to the best of my ability and still no help so I was forced to purchase another card and basically waste my money on a card not even 2 years old.

 

Does anyone else have this problem getting simple answers from this company?

 

 

    1. When did you first experience this issue on your system?

           After the driver download on or around the first week of August of this year.

   2. Have you made any hardware change?

No

   3.  Have you uninstalled the old driver and reinstall the new driver properly?

            Yes, but the AMD Evolved Gaming automatically reinstalled the  newer driver.

   4.  What’s the old driver version which your system works fine?

  •    5.  What O.S. (32 bit or 64 bit) and driver version you’re using?

 

          Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and the current driver is 15.200.1062.1004

AMD updated driver causing problems

Recently after my drivers were automatically updated on my Windows 7 system, my
screen began locking up during game play with a variety of online games. I have
attempted to roll back to the last available driver with no luck and have even
attempted to use the original driver disc that came with my R7 240 card. My
computer has over 430 gigs of hard drive space, 9 gig's of RAM, uses a Quad 4 I
7 Intel processor. I'm at my wits end, please help!
