I have the same problem my vga is hd 6870 and after instalation, I restart my computer and after this, looking at the radeon settings the old driver still installed, but "vulkan time libraries" clicking in this program open a black diagnostic screen saying
"WARNING: [loader] Code 0 : Registry lookup failed can't get layer manifest files

Please try the following, which should resolve your issue.
1. Run the Windows self check tool to check scan and automatically repair any corrupt files found in Windows. There is a guide on how to do it here. What you need to do is run an elevated command prompt (elevated means run it as administrator) and type SFC /SCANNOW. This will generate a statement indicating if errors were found the Operating system and if they were fixable.
3. Update Windows. Install all available critical, recommended and optional updates. Often Netframework and Visual C are included in the recommended or optional updates Windows provides. Windows should always be fully up to date before installing our drivers!
4. Use DDU to sweep the system of AMD drivers.
4. Download, run and install the latest Crimson 16.3.2 drivers once the above is completed.
Are the new driver updates like the 16.3.2 you mentioned above compatible with the HD 6950 card?
uninstalled the old AMD drivers and installed the new one. Everything working again. Thank you very much!
first open c drive and amd folder then, find which version you want to install, then open bin64 and onpen InstallManager.exe it will update your driver.
There is a another way that doesn't require downloading any additional applications.
I had the same problem before and i found the solution to it
this is how i fixed my issue: open file explorer >this PC >search bin64 >open bin64 file >scroll down and find installmanagerapp >open installmanagerapp and press install and follow what the installer says. After installing restart and open your amd radeon settings then try upgrading driver and your problem should be fixed. remember i don't expect this to work for you but i'm just telling you that i tried this and it worked.
