Driver Version 17.4.3
Display devices: Dell 1920x1200 connected with DVI
CPU: I5 3570k
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX

My problem:
It first happened when I updated to version 17.4.3.

I dont know how to replicate it, but first I want to say, I did re install, worked the same day, but the next day the problem came back.

All games are latest version Steam have auto updated them to.

The problem is that, games crash at startup but some come with error message and some dont:


7 days to die:

I get this error:

(Couldnt switch to requested monitor resolution)


Natural Selection 2:

(Fatal Error: Couldnt initalize the render device)



(A fatal error has occurred and the application cannot continue.

VideoDX9: The application requres hardware that supports shader model 2.0

VideoDevice: Failed to find a valid display mode)


Democracy 3:

(Failed to initalise 3d Engine:src+app_game.cpp258)


Mini Metro:

(The screen is just pink)


Space Engineers:


Endless legend:

(Same as mini metro, Pink screen)


Unity of Command:
