          As a first troubleshooting step, i would try a system clean up and a fresh install of the latest Crimson drivers.


          I'd like you to try a system clean up and a fresh installation of 16.8.1, to see if it resolves the issue.


          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 in safe mode.


          5. Install the latest Crimson 16.8.1 drivers once the above is completed and check to see if the issue is resolved.

              Im Left with the same issue,
              The suggestion from AMD was "Reinstall using the latest drivers - hopefully it will be ok".


              Cmon ...
              I tried also Linux installs and so on.
              What stands in the way of providing US the consumers an image that will contain the needed proper state for us to TEST the card.
              Is our time of no value to AMD?


              I did a lot of tests all to fail. Wasted a lot of time and this is not the way to treat a consumer of at least high grade hardware.
              I love the open source technology support but I would like to get some proper support as a customer also.



              Were you capable of resolving the issue or are you stuck in your own thread like me ... SQUARED.
