Here is a picture of the issue. This is occurring in all games and applications. Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet


The card was working fine before the latest update, attempts to roll back the driver/uninstalling-reinstall have failed to correct the issue.

The AMD clean uninstall utility was used.


There are no "ghost" cards which are still installed, yet the drivers listed for the card are in duplicate (unsure if this is intended or not).

"Failed to create OpenGL context for format QSurfaceFormat(version2.0,

options QFlags(), depthBufferSize24, redBufferSize -1, greenBufferSize -1,

blueBufferSize -1, alphaBufferSize 8, stencilBufferSize 8, samples -1,

swapBehavior 2, swapInterval 1, profile 0).



This is most likely caused by not having the necessary graphics drivers installed.



Install a driver providing OpenGL 2.0 or higher, or, if this is not possible,

make sure the ANGLE Open GL ES 2.0 emulation libraries (libEGL.dll, libGLESv2.dll,

and d3dconpiler_*.dll) are available in the applications executable's directory or in

a location listed in PATH."


This notification just popped up, I'm unsure if it is related.
