Solved

Having Driver issues, w/ pics please help diagnose.

Since installing my new RX470 and using the latest drivers. I've been greeted with several real issues.

Several random black screens, forcing me to restart my PC. Once my PC black screened and restarted on it's own. In the event viewer to a (AODDriver4.2 failed to start, system cannot find the path). Today while playing Wow, i received the same black screen, game crash and had to restart my system.

Here is the pic of my device manager under Display adapters.

Here is a pic of my device manager under Monitors.

It shouldn't be showing Microsoft should it? shouldn't' it be AMD?

I have uninstalled these same drivers 2 times now. Once, through control panel and again by DDU. Both times hoping it would solve my problems.

I thought DDU would get rid of any old registry drivers that may cause conflicts.

any thoughts ideas? or suggestions.

  1. What shows under monitor is irrelevant so long as you can pick the monitor's native resolution.
    Full specs please, including PSU. This sounds like a RAM or (most likely) PSU issue.

    PSU is a one week old CORSAIR RMx Series RM650X 650W 80 PLUS GOLD
    GPU is a less than 1 week old Sapphire RX470 Nitro+ 4GB
    OS is Windows 10 (8.1 upgraded) up to date.
    CPU is AMD 8350
    MB is GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AMD 990FX


    I have run a Microsoft RAM test a week ago and nothing was detected.

    For me this seems like a Driver issue/conflict. I've run DDU and it had no issues with uninstalling (in safe mode).

    Well, considering your other thread aswel, a fresh install is very much merited.
    Btw, Win updates are nto really the way to go. Power users will always do fresh installs when a new win version comes out. Saves you a headache alter.
