AMD Drivers causing crash on Windows 10 tried multiple solutions.

Sorry if this has been answered, but most cases seem to get fixed after the methods I have used below.

I am having an issue with a new pc build. We have windows 10 installed and updated, but when we install a graphics driver for the PC, the driver crashes every 10 seconds and eventually if not uninstalled, gives a BSOD. This is happening from the log in screen and crashes every 5 - 10 seconds. Without the driver however, the GPU runs fine. No crashing or artifacting.

I have tried TdrDelay in regedit, all that has done is make the BSOD less frequent. Moving RAM from slots 1 & 3 to 2 & 4. Tried reinstalling windows multiple times, latest time with the windows ISO rather than the Windows 10 OEM CD. Tried installing other OS drivers to see if they would fix it. Tried installing both current drivers and Beta.

The hardware shouldn't be overclocked because it is all brand new stuff and it is a fresh install.

We have got a
MSI 970 motherboard,
AMD FX 4350 Black Edition CPU
16gb DDR3 Ram,
Sapphire Tri - X R9 290
Windows 10
Corsair 750M PSU

Anyone able to help at all?
Thanks

  1. You have pretty much two options for the BSOD: one is the drivers, but if you say the problem persists with older drivers and on a different OS, then it is most likely a faulty GPU, you should RMA it.

    First, run AMD's uninstall utility that cleans up all AMD drivers from your system. Reboot Windows. Check for Windows updates and see if Windows is downloading any drivers from any AMD components in your system. If so, download the Windows Updates Show/Hide tool from Microsoft and hide all the AMD driver updates. Once that is done, reboot and check for updates again. It may so happen that Windows has already downloaded the drivers. In that case, go to windows/SoftwareDistribution and empty it (do it in safe mode).

    Finally, reboot normally and check using device manager that the only Display Adapter you have is a Microsoft Basic Display Adapter or not. If so, install the drivers that you will get at support.amd.com. Else, re-run AMD's uninstall utility again.

    With Windows 10, there's a lot of driver conflicts happening. I think that might be the case for you too.
