    16.1 Driver totally unstable

    deadinside

      I am upset that I went to this driver. I had originally upgraded because the previous drivers would crash in the middle of fallout 4. It was random and usually happened after an hour or so of game play. Now I am lucky if I can spend 5 minutes without the game crashing out and windows giving me an error about the drivers. Some of the times it's a total system freeze that requires a complete reboot. ATI 7850 based GFX card. What is the better way to revert back to an older driver without the system ignoring the upgrade? Windows 10 is not giving me the option to rollback the driver.

            Try uninstalling the driver, then installing the one you want to use.  Things could always be worse, you know--you could have bought *shudder* nVidia...;)

              Your going to have to prevent Microsoft from automatically "updating" to the latest version....otherwise you are just wasting your time.

                Same problem here, especially with Start Wars Battlefront and CS:GO, they crash to desktop.
