I'm posting this again due to no one being able to help me with this problem:



Hi guys!


I've been having this problem with Blizzard's new game, Overwatch. A Crashmailer report keeps popping up as soon as I startup the game. I consulted with the Tech Specialists at Blizzard and they told me the problems seems to come from the game not recognizing my AMD R9 200 series Graphics Card. They have told me to Update the driver, Uninstall it and Reinstall it, but yet none of their solutions worked (I went through 9 tech supports and 1 Tech specialist.).
They have exhausted all their solutions and offered me this link to your Tech Support.


If you guys need any info about my Specs, I'm glad to provide them for you.


Thanks in Advance.
