I got a RX 480, The only driver that will currently work is the WHQL-Win10-64Bit-Radeon-Software-Crimson-16.10.1-Oct13, that i had to manually install through windows device manager. Any other driver i install through amd after restart it reports code 43 in DM, and if i try to install any other driver through DM , after some time my screen will turn off then back on only not taking as long like the driver i can install successfully. and it reports windows has stopped this device. So i am not to sure what is going on,


I have used DDU and AMDs cleaner utility, Stopped windows from updating the driver, and have had let windows install the driver same results.

Also tried multiple clean install of windows 10, a friend suggested i increase my virtual memory to  min of 8GB but that also did nothing to help, my mother boards bios are also updated, and i updated my SMS BUS, so im not to sure what else i can do at this point.
