    How may I update my graphics drivers? AMD R280 Toxic

    xavier1

      Hi I have an AMD R280 Toxic and I don't update the drivers since 2014 I guess.

      The thing is I am a bit confused about the process.

      Should I uninstall my current drivers or not?

      I don't know if I should uninstall my current drivers, or I just simply have to install the newest ones. In this case, if I don't have to uninstall... what would happen to the old drivers? would they just be replaced or how?

      I want to install the latest graphics drivers but also the Catalyst Control Center.

      Also, I wouldn't like to lose my current settings... that is other factor that scare me to reinstall the drivers.

      How may I maintain my current settings?

      Any advices about this?

      What file should I download to install the latest graphics and also, the Catalyst Control Center.

      Cheers

              Before attempting to install new AMD graphics drivers on Win 8.1 or Win7, your computer must be fully updated. Go to Windows Update and install all the critical updates, plus the relevant 'Optional' and 'Recommended' updates...that will include the .netframeworks and C++ upgrades.

               

              1. Using steps 1-5 , manually select your graphics drivers HERE and download/save to your desktop. Do not use automatic find and install.

              2. Remove old drivers using 'uninstall a program' in the computer control panel****

              FOR COMPUTERS WITH INTEL PROCESSORS***

               

              Select AMD Catalyst Install manager and uninstall the entire package. Reboot. Install the new driver suite. Reboot.

               

               

              FOR COMPUTERS WITH AMD PROCESSORS***

               

              Select AMD Catalyst install manager and uninstall the graphics driver only. Reboot. Install the new driver suite. Reboot.

               

               

               

              Disable all anti-virus/anti-malware/anti-anything before trying to install AMD drivers.

               

               

               

                If you do not wish to have raptr on your computer, uncheck the box next to 'Gaming Evolved'.

               

               

              This is a proven installation method that will work 99% of the time for everybody. However, there is the 1% who will need to use the 'Clean' install method. Use this if you run into issues
