Hello everyone!

 

Thought I'd come to the forums as I can't seem to find any official guidance at all. I have a problem with my XFX Radeon R9 380 4GB. Mainly the drivers. I installed the newest drivers from AMD's website (18.7.1) and then tried to install the older version (18.5.1) but I get the same problem.

 

When I install the driver, halfway through the install my screen goes black, forcing me to control my computer using Chrome Remote Desktop. Once the driver has finished installing, I checked to see if I could change anything on the Display tab in Radeon Settings and it says that I have 'No AMD Products connected'.

 

Now I am stuck to using the stock Microsoft Basic Display Adapter drivers. Which is of course, completely bottlenecking my system and not allowing me to play games (e.g. osu!, CSGO, Overwatch).
