      My issue is that I receive Error 1603 when attempting to install the latest driver from AMD's site (which indicates my card is still supported). I went to the linked page and attempted all of the suggested steps for troubleshooting, to no avail. This issue came to my attention when I updated Windows and suddenly I was unable to use my GPU in a game (Divinity Original Sin 2), as it couldn't detect it. I then attempted to update the drivers and got Error 1603. Device Manager cannot detect the Display Device as a result. I've already rolled back my version of Windows in an attempt to fix it that way, as it seemed to have broke only when I updated to the new version of Windows 10. I've attached a number of screenshots to illustrate the issue.


      Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I hope that you can help.
