R9 380 crashes on 17.1X.X drivers.

Question asked by ambulas on Dec 23, 2017

R9 380 crashes on 17.XX.X drivers.



GPU - AMD Radeon R9 380 4GB

OS - Windows 10 64 bit

Driver version installed - 17.12.2

Display devices - Samsung monitor S24D300

Motherboard - ASUS H170M-PLUS

CPU - i5-6500 3.20GHz

PSU - Corsair CX650M 80 Plus Bronze ATX, 650W.

RAM - Kingston 8GB DDR4 2133 MHz


I was getting BSOD error atikmdag.sys on drivers that I forgot version of, I decided to update drivers to 17.12.2, when I do DDU and install 17.12.2 on normal mode it works fine but if I restart or shutdown pc it will boot up and after 5-15 seconds everything will freeze and pc will restart. No other way to make it work on 17.12.2 or any adrenalin drivers except performing DDU and installing a driver and not restarting/shutdown pc.

Some people say 17.7.1 is a stable driver but if I use it I get poor performance in games.


Drivers I've tried that either has poor performance or crashes pc:




17.10.3 (on this one games says compatible drivers were not found).




Every driver I installed without ReLive.


What to do? How to prevent pc from crashing?
