Solution 2: Changing Driver Version

Sometimes it might be possible that the latest Radeon Drivers might not be compatible with the GPU that you are using therefore in this step we will be selecting a specific driver and seeing as to which one works the best with your GPU for that

  1. Uninstall the Drivers as instructed in the first Solution
  2. After you have successfully uninstalled your drivers open the official AMD website and select your GPU to make and Windows version
  3.  This time instead of installing the one on top navigate to the oldest one and install that
  4. If that Driver works keep on upgrading one after the other until you reach the one that doesn’t work simply uninstall that and move to the last one that worked
  5. Now in order to disable windows from automatically updating the driver
  6. Press Windows + R,type “gpedit.msc” and press OK
    Typing gpedit.msc in RUN
  7. Under the Computer Configuration Panel double click on Administrative Templates
    Opening Administrative Templates
  8. Now navigate to System>Device Installation>Device Installation Restrictions
    Navigating to Device Installation Restrictions
  9. Now in the Right-Hand side of the Window double click on “Prevent installation of devices that match any of these device IDs”
    Opening the Restriction template
  10. A popup appears select enable and click on show
    Selecting enabled and opening the blocked hardware ids
  11. Type in the Hardware ID of your GPU and click on OK
    (you can find the ID of your GPU by navigating to Device Manager > [your device] > Properties > Details > Hardware IDs)

    Typing in the GPU’s hardware ID
  12. Click on Apply

This will make sure that windows do not automatically update your drivers to the ones that don’t work. Also, if this step does not solve your problem then install a fresh copy of windows and try to install your drivers on that.
