Hi,

 

I'm a longtime ATI/AMD product user across multiple computers.

 

On one of my computers, a Ryzen 3 2200g, using the integrated graphics, I ran into a small problem trying to update to the latest driver version.

As the title says, my entire screen blinks the moment I install this driver.  It was working fine on 18.5.1 (attempting reinstall of this version now), it works fine with default Windows 10 drivers, but I just can't install x.7.1.  The problem starts as soon as I reboot the computer, into the login screen, or sometimes just as soon as the driver is installed.  Likely, it stops when the driver finishes uninstalling.

 

I tried all of this: Troubleshooting Common AMD Graphics Driver Installation Problems

but nothing works.

 

I went to the bios, tried to change the settings for the APU, increasing the dedicated memory, but I always have the same problem.

 

My system:
Gygabyte GA-AB350n-Gaming

Bios revision F23d (latest available so far)

Ryzen 3 2200g  (either "auto" or 2gb or 4gb dedicated memory in the bios)

Windows 10 64bit build 1803 (all updates so far)

Driver (problematic) 18.7.1

G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 (running at 2133mhz)

Silverstone - Strider Gold 450W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply

Samsung - 960 EVO 250GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive
