Describe your system:

  • Gigabyte AORUS RX 580 4GB
  • Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 Motherboard, Desktop
  • Windows 10 Pro x64 1709
  • Currently 17.4.3
  • Display Devices
    • Active DP Adapter to HDMI BenQ GW2265 #1
    • HDMI to BenQ GW2265 #2
    • DP to DVI-D to Dell 1908FP
    • Active DP Adapter to HDMI Toshiba Regza 40'' TV
  • AMD FX 8370
  • EVGA Supernova 750B 80+Bronze
  • 16GB DDR3 1600Mhz

Describe your issue:

  • Installing any drivers past 17.4.3 resulted in any devices connected with Active Adapters to present a blue screen
  • The displays were receiving input, Windows detects the display and allows for it to be configured
  • Moved devices to different DisplayPorts and issue followed the Active Adapter
  • Rebooting into Safe Mode and Active Adapters function as intended.
  • Replacing with Passive Adapter works as expected.
  • Anything newer than 17.4.3 would not work, currently using 17.4.3 "Crimson" drivers and not the "Adrenalin" drivers
