Disconnect from the internet when attempting to install AMD drivers.
Delete the contents of the C:/AMD folder of all previous driver versions.
Thank you. I will try all of this again and report back to you when I finish.
Sorry for the slight confusion, I wasn't installing both auto and manual.
It didn't work. I'll tell you everything I did in detail:
- Disabled automatic windows driver install with a reg key. This is the driver list, with only Intel HD Graphics installed: https://i.imgur.com/cRFwSv4.png Started doing a clean uninstall. Entered safe mode and ran the DDU driver uninstaller.
- Uninstalled the driver in safe mode, restarted.
- Ran Windows normally, deleted AMD folder, disabled Anti-malware and disabled the internet.
- Installed the driver that the website showed me after entering the specs, namely "radeon-software-adrenalin-edition-18.3.1-march5"
As shown here: https://i.imgur.com/GTy6icd.png
- System froze during installation as before (took pics with my phone):
Then, after forcing restart, windows would either freeze during the dots loading or enter a Startup repair loop (wouldn't let me continue to windows), which I fix by entering Startup repair, command line and doing the 'restore windows registry' command provided on this page: Windows 10 Automatic Repair Loop [Solved] - Driver Easy
After starting up windows normally again, the AMD driver is installed with errors and disabled, as shown here: https://i.imgur.com/fPEpm3Q.png
Back to square one.
Edit: Event viewer doesn't seem to show anything of the freeze.
First Sorry for my English :
We using same R7 family .. mine desktop HIS R7 250x 1Gb .
Win 10 , Quadcore - Phenom II X4 965 BE 3,4 Ghz
RAM : 6 GB
PSU : 550 W
Here my driver Experiment result :
17.12.1 , 17.12.2 : System Freezes ( Monitor auto shutdown - all pherip. not responding after ) , Good side : Low Core usage
18.1.1 , 18.1.2 : BSOD often in game ,when watching youtube , randomly .. , Good side : Low Core usage
after i done my research, using 17.11.4 was the best, i never got BSOD in a week. ( Feb 2018 - Mar 2018 )
just now , I've install and test playing fortnite using 18.3.1 , was hoping a fix , because i love how Low core usage -- its really increase my FPS in game. RESULT .............................................: i got BSOD at start..
I think latest driver only work for latest GPU with 2 Gb VRAM or more . I will rollback using 17.11.4 till i can afford buying new PC or VGA
My suggestion for you Mexer, try uninstall using DDU in safemode, and use 17.11.4 driver.
Wish this help .
The poster has a laptop/Mobility graphics...totally different issues.
Even though kingfish mentioned it's different, I will still try this if everything else fails.
Thank you for the suggestion.
