Hi there.


I have some trouble with the amd's drivers. I have a RX 460 Radeon, since I got it, I never could play Guild Wars 2 without a crash. (It was either a "white screen" and the game quit, or a blue screen and my computer has to restart).

I have the latest version of the drivers :

I ran WhoCrashed after a blue screen, and the software told me this :

This was probably caused by the following module: atikmpag.sys (atikmpag+0xF7F8)

Bug check description: This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: atikmpag.sys (AMD multi-vendor Miniport Driver, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.).

Do anyone has an idea of what's going on my computer ?


Many thanks.
