    teopat

      so i'v got this problem almost a half year now my gpu usually starts with my pc and stuck in 300mhz memory clock (rx 560) but after couple restart bcs my pc for some reason will blue screen some times while opening and i know that the problem is the gpu every time their is a new driver available my pc will crash mid download and cancel the driver from downloading but when it actually install i will have a problem with the name 1603 and my driver will be half installed what ever i do now recently i buy DOOM that is laggy what ever setting i use VULCAN/OPENGL i have 20 fps and a lot of dips and i thought it was just the game then i release that my gpu was running at 300mhz or 625mhz  when i look at the walls my fps go 100+ and i hit the 1750 memory but when i look in the game again dip to 300 any fix plz? i really dont want to buy a new gpu right now ...

          The Radeon drivers dynamically adjust your clock speed based on load/demand. This is normal. If you are having stability issues I would try and disable "CHILL" and see if that makes a difference. From there if it does not it may be a typical power phasing issue which can be worked around by raising the POWER LIMIT SLIDER in Wattman to its maximum (all the way to the right). If none of this helps, and I am assuming you are on a desktop and not dealing with multiple graphics cards or built in graphics, run DDU  Official Display Driver Uninstaller DDU Download   from SAFE MODE. Then restart and install the latest drivers again with custom settings and choose clean install, don't choose express install.

           

          Let us know it this helped!

           

          Good Luck & Happy Gaming.

                      What are your full system specs? You have something more going on here. It sounds like your either your driver isn't installing right. Or your system isn't even trying to use your video card. Do you have onboard or switchable graphics, is this even a desktop computer?

                              I don't know of any AMD card that doesn't support 2 monitors. Why would you be running one with the onboard graphics? Typically when you add a dedicated card you then disable onboard graphics. The AMD drivers are very picky about playing nice with multiple graphics setups at times. I would do this. Try and get it working with just the one monitor (not permanent just to get it working) then once you have that working right add the second monitor back in on the AMD card. If you don't have the 2 ports you need, you just buy a cheap converter for display port to whatever you need.

                               

                              If all else fails, revert back to an old driver if that works. Again not a permanent or optimal solution, but if it works it works. I'm frustrated with the state of driver for nearly a year now too.

                                      they do make dvi and display port to 15 pin VGA. You really just need an adapter. Used to be cards came with them. But for the Triple the price of suggested retail they get today, I can sure see why they can't afford to include a one dollar adapter. Okay yes that was sarcasm.

                          An idea would be game on 1 monitor & if your intel integrated is still enabled use that with a monitor for your main & basic desktop aplications. AMD cards are picky but my stepson runs a R7 360 2G on a 32inch tv as his primary gaming monitor & integrated motherboard on his i3 4150 for all his desktop & other applications no issues on a crapper monitor. He does U tubing & Beta testing for Rockstar Ubisoft with video calling with out issues. AMD drivers are picky tho its how you enable & run your build to.

                                I am running on an old AOC 193FW+ monitor on Dvi cable & on 18.2.1 drivers with out fps dips playing The Witcher 3 on a i5 2400 8G ram on a RX560 without issues & its intensive as on card & my old pig of a build without frames dropping & I play a mix of instesive games no issues. Its not the drivers & I have thrown some mongrel power tests against it so does my stepson on his build. usually with GTA5 with many apps running on his i3. I psuh mine to its limits no issues I am thinking could be PSU related to not getting enouight power to drive the drivers to their potiential. I run a 600w & recommended to run 500w + for these cards. I do say on recommendation tho to replace PSU on a cycle of 2-3 years as the quality vs quanity is crap had 2 good Antecs cough within 18 months as why I suggest this. Had games not run properly as lack of juice from a PSU & these cards are picky on power supply & display cables you go cheap you get what you pay for lesson learnt, not always drivers at fault usually hardware more of the common issue.

                                    I am from NZ we dont get the avalibility of some of the new good stuff for a while or pay really big $ for crap. Microsofts 10 1709 update has been horrible driver wise for AMD compatability wise causing chaos. What I did to solve my problem was run my OS on SSD, Download AMD drivers to USB flash driver with DDU as well checked over all my cables, Running over excessive PSU 600w to allow for it crapiing itself had 2 Antecs die within 2 years wont go that way again. Took me ages to pick threw mine. I am running on a suspect PSU right now but its stable, AMD cards & builds are picky with cheap crap shell out on decent Brand known PSUs, SSDs, Hardware, Ram & Cables lesson learnt from my issues why I suggest it & have fixed a few by this method.
