      I recently updated to AMD 16.12.2, when I open image processing applications and games I get Blue Screen. So I did a clean installation, I used DDU application and AMD Clean Up Utility to uninstall my INTEL and AMD drivers. I manually searched and installed the latest INTEL graphics driver (version 153343.4425) and reboot. Then I manually searched my AMD graphics driver too (16.12.2) and reboot. After reboot, when I am in desktop, all of a sudden I get a BSOD and then restarts automatically then the whole screen displays the crashed graphic pixels, then it restarts again, this time it goes to recovery options where i can access to restore system or safe mode options. This was an annoying problem so I went to safe mode and used DDU application to clean uninstall the AMD driver only. Currently no BSOD. But I cannot play any game or run a high end graphics application.


      I did some research and did these too. Run these commands as admin in command prompt.

      dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

      sfc /scannow


      After executing above commands I did check for Windows updates for any framework or other optional updates, but I didn't find anything. So I assume everything is up to date.


      Can someone please tell me what I should do next and what more details I must provide to fix this?


      Thank You!
