Hey guys,


The driver refuses to install, when it reaches 2% it immediately goes to a 100% and says it has installed. (but it clearly has not)

When i go to my system, it says that Microsoft Basic Display Adapter is my current driver.


My specs:

Windows 10, 64 bit

AMD radeon r9 270x

(i think this is all you need to know)


What i have tried:

- Reinstalling the whole computer and installing drivers from cd (does not work).

- Trying different drivers, even manually installing the right one does not work.

- Disabling the internet and anti-virus while installing

- Using DDU and doing a clean install

- Updating windows

- Installing another driver (Nvidea) from a cd, it worked, but now i have a Nvidea driver that doesnt do me any good.


I think i didnt forget to mention anything, but i have tried everything! and it just wont work!


I would appreciate any help!!
