    Most Stable Drivers for Windows 10


      hey Guys ever since upgrading my Sapphire 6950 2gb, to a R9 280x i have been having nothing but trouble with AMD products.


      I dont know if its a Windows 10 issue. But i recently upgraded my card to a asus r9 390x and having several issues with that card.

      My issues i had with the r9 280x was like everyone else 2d flickering, 3d artifacts etc.


      Now with my new card i am getting crashes and hard reboots when running Furmark. if i run furmark for about 20 minutes the PC restarts its self without warning. Unigen Valley after 20 minutes or so crashes. i am just wondering what is the most stable drivers available for the r9 390x. However when i run games like BF4 or Hardline on Max settings i have no issues.


      My Specs;

      i5 4690k

      Gigabyte z87x-OC

      8gb Ram

      Corsair HX750w Power supply.

      ASUS R9 390x DC3

          I would not use Furmark as a way to measure stability, use games instead. Furmark places unnecessary load on the GPU and will cause temperatures to rise quickly.


          Please try the steps below to see if it resolves the issue you mentioned.


          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.


          2. Make sure you have installed Microsfot NetFramework and Visual C++ 2013. These should be installed already, but they can become damaged, need repairing or reinstalling.


          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.


          5. Install the latest Crimson 16.5.3 drivers once the above is completed.
