35.5. RADEON Driver Fixing Guide | Kevin Tinnin – AMD Community Admin
00:36:19
If you cannot get your RADEON Drivers to work, try these steps: 1)Make sure your motherboard Bios is up-to-date, and of course make sure no component is overclocked/undervolted. 2)Download DDU and Uninstall All AMD Drivers (Radeon, chipset, audio). This full nuking of drivers is important. https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html 3)Install 19.10.2. Reboot at least one extra time after it is fully installed. https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-rad-win-19-10-2 4)Then refresh Windows 10 updates to have windows handle any missing drivers. See if you are stable, comment below if you are. To be clear - I am not interested in hearing about people trying other drivers.
