Same problem here using a saphire fury Trix and 3 AOC i2369VM screens.
@gratefc: Thank you for your reply hopefully this will enable the guys/girls on the Radeon Software team to recognise that this may be a problem for many users.
After disabling the Custom (1080P@75Hz) resolution, this problem still exists when running in 60Hz, so now in order to work around this problem I have to permanently use the 1080P@75Hz custom resolution .
To be honest, I'm not sure if this was a problem before creating the custom resolution as I wasn't really looking for it before, as I say, I only recognised the problem the next morning.
Did you experience this problem without any custom resolution settings?.
I don't want to have to replace my monitor to fix this as the AOC i2x69vm series has been brilliant up until now.
I have not tried custom resolutions. i bit the bullet and removed the drivers and went back to 15.11.1 beta.
Thanks for the response.
I hope all goes well for you with the next update
I have a Toshiba laptop (Satellite P50-B-10v) with radeon R9 M265X video card, after the installation of Crimson driver, the brightness hotkeys stoped working and the display brightness was 100% (i coulndn't find any way to change the brightness). I unnistalled crimnson driver and got back to omega driver and all was OK. I tried installing/ reinstalling crimson driver may times but every time i confronted the brightness problem.
I hope the next update will fix this issue.
OS : windows 10 Home x64
I believe I have the same issue with my AOC 2269Vwm and MSI r9 270x on Win10 pro x64
The monitor supports up to 60Hz, but the AMD drivers say the maximum reported refresh rate is 75Hz. So the only way to fix the brightness is to set a custom resolution at 75Hz. Which I'm afraid to do as the monitor does not officialy support it (and I don't plan on changing it anytime soon). I can approximate the old look by lowering the contrast and raising the gamma, but that's not ideal (and after restart the settings are not applied until I open the "additional settings").
Does any1 know how to change the refreshrate in the new crimson dirvers? mine is stuck at 60 atm.
If you want to set a custom resolution go into the new Radeon settings console and select the 'Displays' tab at the bottom, then over in the top right corner you will see 'additional settings', click that and eventually you will see another window (which looks like the old Catalyst Control Center) pop up then in the left under the tab 'My digital flat panels' you will see a 'Custom resolutions' button, that will take you to the correct screen.
I just left it at my monitors resolution but changed the 'Hz' to 75, and everything worked fine.
When verifying the custom resolution avoid pressing any buttons whilst the screen is black, just to be on the safe side and avoid accidentally saving a resolution which your monitor doesn't "like"...
Bug still exists in 'Radeon Software Crimson Edition 15.12'
Parts of the explorer scrollbar in Windows 10 are "invisible"/washed out, when running @60Hz on a monitor capable of 75Hz (when using a custom resolution to enable it).
The fact that AMD haven't quickly fixed this suggests to me that they don't think it will bother most Radeon customers affected by it...
I'm still having this issue with 16.1.
I've tried some registry editing, removed the ability to display certain modes, but it hasn't solved anything. Is this ever gonna be taken a look at?
I have found a solution for this issue....working 100% for my on 16.1 hotfix drivers.
What you need to do is create a custom resolution profile within the crimson software....set it to 75hz and save it..*
This will give you the correct colours as you know...here is the fix
Create another profile but set it to 60hz (progressive) verify and save it.
Then go into windows display manager and set your monitor to 60hz and this should solve the issue, it has for me on all three of my panels.
*you may be able to skip this step
I can confirm this with AOC i2369vm, but it is still a bit brighter then the one that I connect with HDMI.
I just created the profile with 60hz progressiv without creating the 75hz before.
I have my colour temp set at sRBG via the monitors control panel.
The colour looks spot on to me now.
hope this helps
Desktop is still fine for me using custom resolutions, however when i run games full screen 60hz, the nasty colour returns
The problem still persists in 16.3.1....
Thanks for the update. I haven't tried the new drivers yet, but I can confirm that it has been getting really annoying having to fix this bug every time there is an update to Windows 10 x64 (as someone getting fast lane updates).
Same problem here also use a I2369VM AOC since the first version of AMD Crimson that there is this problem, the problem continues even in the most current (16.3). Already filled out two forms on the AMD website reporting the problem and so far nothing.
For HDMI is normal, the problem is only using Displayport. The previous driver to crimson works normal.
still exist in 16.4.1 (Try custom resolutions worked for me ^^ Few posts up ^^ )
Same problem in 16.4.2, custom resolution fix still works, but nasty colours in games still remain....Only solution for me is running games at 75hz @ 75fps or running in a desktop window, which is doable on most games.
Please look into this AMD, the fact there is a walk around should mean there is an easy fix...surely its a matter of using the custom resolution profile as the driver default profile for these AOC screens.
Tweeted and raised a ticket with amd about this, still not fixed in 16.5.2
Problem persists in 16.6.1, again sent a report on the driver download page talking about the problem, also tweeted to @amdradeon to make the problem more visible.
I tried to use the solution of custom resolution but did not work.
The way I found was to manually configure the additional settings:
- Brightness 25
- Contrast 70
Other people with different monitor brands have similar problems, I believe the problem is for everyone who uses displayport.
The simple fact of using a pre-Crimson driver operate normally, exclude the possibility of problems in cables, monitor etc ... Clearly the problem is the driver.
Problem persists in 16.7.3, custom resolution (60hz) fix still works but only when GPU scale is turned off on Radeon Crimson monitor options.
Using an Asus R9 280X-DC2T-3GD5 (R9 200 series), in a Windows 10 Home 64 bit system, with a monitor with 144 hz refresh rate, after upgrading to the radeon crimson software I'm experiencing severe problems:
- at start the brightness seems normal, but in a fraction of seconds, it became too much bright, hurting the eyes. Tried to change the refresh rate, but nothing have changed;
- at Radeon settings, sliding the «custom brightness» to the left, did not produce any result. Even sliding to the right, nothing changed;
- the same behavior was found in «Radeon additional settings»;
- when scrolling up&down a text, a see below a with shadow that is quite annoying.
Does anyone have a clue to overcome this problem?
Uninstalling Radeon software the image become just fine. This is quite strange...

Apparently the problem has been solved in version 16.9.1
There was no need to create a custom resolution using normal contrast Displayport.
Windows 10 X64 PRO
HD7850 2GB Sapphire
AOC I2369VM 23 "1920X1080 DP
Radeon Crimson 16.9.1
PS: Utilize the DDU v220.127.116.11 (or newer) before installing to make a clean install.
i have the same problem
but if i go back to 16.7.3 the problem solved!!
and if i upgrade to 16.9.2 the problem show on my monitor
i tried to overclock monitor before
so what i gonna do?
i used DDU but problem still exsist!!
First of all, tests with an HDMI or DVI cable.
If it works normally, switch to the DisplayPort cable.
Open Radeon Crimson / Monitor
Deactivate VSR and GPU Scale
If the problem persists:
Attempts to create a custom resolution (previous messages explain how to create).
In my case, it was resolved in 16.9.1 or later.
After changed the Catalyst for Crimson all previous to 16.9.1 presented the problem.
plz can you explain again about creat custom resulotion
because i did not understand
my last refresh rate in my monitor is 74hz
but if i use custom resolution it comes a black screen and go back to 60 hz why ?
