Newest AMD Driver Update Causes Battery to Not Charge (Windows 10, 64 Bit)

Hello, all. So, I recently updated my Dell Inspiron M5040's AMD Drivers and now, my battery is not charging. I checked the BiOS and there's a new setting called "PowerNow" or something similar to it. I was wondering if there was a way to roll back my drivers as I believe this is the issue (as I've never had any previous issues with my laptop battery before.)

 

I would appreciate any help or advice. However, I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the battery using Device Manager and all of that and nothing's working. It's either the new AMD update or my battery's toast (which I hope it isn't!)
