          Please provide more information so we can help.



          In the meantime, try the steps below to see if it improves your performance. 


          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 Crimson 16.5.1 drivers once the above is completed.

              I found that it was! When i launch any game, process "java update sheduler" was loaded my GPU by 99% and virtual memory on 10000 mb, when i killed that process everything was fine. Seems like i got virus or something else at same time with installing newest crimson drivers. Jzz, I looked for two days a solution of this problem, i tried everything: anitvirus scan (Dr.Web, Kaspersky Avf), updated BIOS, install and set Msi afterburned (that will be awesome if someone can advice me how i can a little bit overdrive my GPU ), roll back drivers at 16.5.1 drivers and early versions, reinstall Netframework and Visual C++ but only at least guess watch in process and saw that Java gone mad.
