Hello everyone,


So for the past few months my R9 270 drivers crash whenever i try updating them. I use the detection tool downloaded from the AMD site.

When the new drivers are installed, my screen goes to a blue-ish color with darker vertical stripes going down the screen. I have tried

just about every solution I could find on alot of different forums, but still it won't work. Only when I install the driver from my installation CD

I got when i bought my PC will it work properly. For some reason the CD driver says: "R9 270 series" and the driver I install with the detection

tool says: "R9 200 series". i dont know if that is the problem, and if so how to fix it.


I'd be extremely happy if anyone has a solution as this problem has already cost me hours and hours to solve without success.


Thanks for helping out,
