      My Radeon 290x card has lately (actually quite a long time) has had issues and lately it (or driver) has crashed and this msg Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered. has been appeared on event log.

                You could try a previous driver, but you say this has been going on for a long time. Have you tried the card in a different computer?

                To rule out drivers, clean install these drivers using DDU...if they don't work none will (IMO) > Detail

                Delete the contents of the C:/AMD folder..all of them.

                Take the steps necessary to prevent/delay Microsoft from automatically installing graphics drivers ..one of these methods > Windows 10 Forums

                    Seems that its driver incompability issue between game (, win 10) and card since after upgrading to 18.4.1 Adrenalin Edition tracks became partially/mostly grey fog while cars had only some greyness in them but in 18.2.1 Adr Ed game behaves same as it did with 17.x (as shown in those attachments).


                    can't test card with win 7 in other computer cause card doesn't fit to to chassis and no spare harddisk to to test it in current chassis.
