Hello guys,

 

I have a question regarding AMD graphic drivers.

Got this older laptop, but still decent. Installed Windows 10, but the it's not great. When I boot the PC, after the Windows logo, I'm getting black screen for few minutes, then lock screen shows up. I managed to relate this with AMD graphic driver issues, since I've uninstalled them and the it worked normally. Also, occasional crash while browsing the web or using applications that require high performance such as Photoshop, Experience Design, any other that includes graphic hardware. Gaming, it's just a pain. Using it for work is my primary thing but with unstable drivers or else related with this matter I cannot fix myself. So I will attach some of my specs, card info and driver versions.

Graphic

AMD Graphic

Graphics Chipset: AMD Radeon HD 7400M Series

So approx. 4GB of VRAM on both cards with Switchable Graphic Panel.

 

All updates/installation of Catalyst I've got from Windows update, didn't do from the website.
