xfx r7800 ghost error 173

hello, a while ago my xfx r7800 ghost graphics card came up with a message saying

"Failed to create OpenGL context for format QSurfaceFormat(version 2.0, options QFlags(), depthBufferSize24, redBufferSize -1, greenBufferSize -1, blueBufferSize -1, alphaBufferSize 8, stencilBufferSize 8, samples -1, swapBehavior 2, swapInterval 1, profile 0) .

This is most likely caused by not having the necessary graphics drivers installed.

Install a driver providing OpenGL 2.0 or higher, or, if this is not possible, make sure the ANGLE Open GL ES 2.0 emulation libraries (libEGL.dll, libGLESv2.dll and d3dcompiler_*.dll) are available in the application executable's directory or in a location listed in PATH."

previous posts talked about uninstalling raptr and so forth and I've done that already, ran DDU and installed crimson 16.10.1, except when that gets going it comes up with error 173 - installer cannot continue since AMD graphics hardware was not found.


Where can I go from here?
