15.12 Crimson driver causing Windows 10 to freeze at the loading screen.

Question asked by gsmiith55 on Mar 11, 2016

I have an R9 280 GPU running on an MSI 970 Gaming motherboard with 32 GB DDR3 PC1600 with an AMD FX-6300 CPU.

When I tried updating to the 15.12 Crimson driver, Windows began freezing at the loading screen (just the rotating circle of dots)

every single time.  I have tried Resetting Windows, I have tried using a Restore Point, I have tried Repair Windows.  I am unable to

boot to Safe Mode, cannot run the Command Prompt.  Nothing works other than doing a complete reinstall of Windows 10 from my

USB (Retail Windows 10 64-bit Home edition), and use the 15.11 Crimson driver.  With that, everything works perfectly, if i then try

updating to the 15.12, Windows once again refuses to load.  I have had the system checked by a local computer technician, and he \

found everything to be fine and working properly, except for the 15.12 Crimson driver.  He had the same experience I did with the

freezing.
