LoadLibrary failed with error 87: The parameter is incorrect

Yesterday i installed win 8.1 on my laptop, and after installing all my drivers, i instaled autodetectutility to see if i can get an updated driver for my amd radeon hd  8500m. All good, because it instaled this new update from crimson. I love the new features etc.


But, the big problem is that, when i want to play some games, like cs 1.6 i get this error.  " LoadLibrary failed with error 87: The parameter is incorrect" .   Also, this happens in this game, only when i have the video set in opengl from the game. When i have it on software, it works. But i want to know, why i get this error. I also tried a game on steam, and again i got that error. It is a bug from the new update? I got back to my old driver wich i downloaded from my lenovo support site(driver from 2013) and with that driver i did not get any errors.


I have a Lenovo g500 with a I5 3230M CPU 2.60Ghz, integrated intel hd 4000, and dedicated amd radeon HD 8500m. This are the specs from my laptop.


If you can help me pls with some advice, not really a sollution. i want just to know if i can use this new driver yet, because i love the new features, but i also want to play those games. If it still needs some bug fixes, there is no worry. I hope that in the future i can use that driver and not to get errors like that in the games.


Have a nice day.

P.S    sorry for my bad english.
