  1. If you have graphics or driver issues, one of the most common fixes is a clean uninstall and removal of your graphics drivers.

    To uninstall your drivers, first download and run Display Driver Uninstaller, and follow it's recommendations of booting into safe mode and ect.
    (This is a direct download link so you don't grab the wrong version)
    http://www.guru3d.com/files-get/display-driver-uninstaller-download,20.html

    You'll download a compressed file called "[Guru3D.com]-DDU.zip"
    Right click and choose extract.
    Go into the folder and run the DDU v##.##.exe
    This will extract more files to this folder.
    Run Display Driver Uninstaller.exe
    Choose Yes when it asks you to boot into SafeMode.
    After you've rebooted into safe mode.
    When DDU comes up, if it hasn't selected your GPU manufacturer (Nvidia/AMD/Intel) then choose it from the drop down list
    Press the Clean and Restart option
    If a window comes up asking to disable the Windows automatic installation of display drivers click yes.

    After (or before removing the old drivers, just put the new ones on the desktop or somewhere handy) rebooting back into Windows, manually download the latest drivers from Nvidia or AMD, don't use auto detect, choose you GPU model and OS from the drop down lists.

  2. If it keeps crashing games, the best solution is to uninstall the drive and use the last working driver that's available.

    i did that.but when i check for windows updates,it downloads the driver again.i don't know why this is happening!!
  6. In your advanced windows update options, do you have Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows checked on? turn it off.
  7. Yes, turn everything off so it won't update anything automatically unless you manually choose to.

    Hello!
    I have the same graphics card: MSI R9 270X, and now, im running the 16.3 Driver. I had similar issues: every game was crashing with different error messages. My solutuion seems weird, but it worked for me: go in to crimson settings, then go to: home-> settings: then click the reset all settings to factory settings (or something like that in english). Go game without crashes. :)
  9. I have tried a number of driver updates and rollbacks, but this appears to have solved the problem ... go figure! Asus R9 280
