    I can't update my driver.


      Hello, everyone, I have a little laptop with a R5 M240 and encountered some problems trying to update my driver.

      I will add screenshots to display everything better. Don't worry the links are safe, they are taken with the Lightshot program.


      So, first of all I entered AMD Settings, chose the latest update and clicked Update now. The error I received was as follows:



      The AMD Settings did not open any longer after that. It took a restart to be able to start the program again. This time I chose the beta driver. I got the same error however.

      Eventually, I chose to find the driver myself on the AMD site. I used the installer and reached this conclusion.



      So here I am, asking AMD for assistance. If you could help me I would be verygrateful.


      GPU: Radeon M240

      Laptop model: Asus X452C

      OS: Windows 7 64bit

      Driver: Radeon Software Crimson Edition 15.30
      Mobo: no idea

      CPU: Intel Core i3-3217u 1.8 GHz

      RAM: 4 GB

          First update your computer. Windows Update..make sure SP1 and all critical updates installed. Also the relevant 'Optional' updates, which will include the required .netframeworks and C++ upgrades. This must be done before trying to install any AMD driver.



          Your laptop is equipped with switchable graphics. In order to update the AMD driver, the Intel graphics should be the current version. Go to this Intel link and use the Intel Driver Update Utility to find the latest graphics driver for your laptop. Download and save it to your desktop.



          Download the correct AMD drivers to your desktop >   Mobile




          Now delete the Intel drivers from your computer using 'uninstall a program' in the computer control panel.


          Uninstall the AMD drivers from your computer using the 'uninstall a program' in the computer control panel.




          ******Computers with Intel processors select 'express' uninstall all AMD software including the install manager.


          ******Computers with AMD processors custom uninstall the AMD graphics driver and Catalyst Control Panel only.

          Note: All anti-malware/anti-virus/anti-anything should be disabled during driver installation.


          Install the Intel drivers...reboot


          Install the AMD drivers...reboot
