    The latest BSOD debugging displayed a recurrent driver.

    An alternative should be tried.

    Turn off Windows updates of non-Microsoft drivers:

    Enable or Disable Driver Updates in Windows Update in Windows 10

    Look for a driver that is different from:


    Uninstall everything AMD using Display driver uninstaller and install new drivers from the AMD website.

    On the AMD web site be sure the "clean install" box is checked and only install the graphics driver.

    Display Driver Uninstaller Download version (or newer version if available)

    If there are BSOD despite multiple drivers this typically indicates malfunctioning hardware.

    See if you can find a friend, relative, neighbor, or local computer store to swap the GPU.
    The swap can be AMD or Nvidia.

    Thanks zbook. Did the full DDU, in safe mode, twice. Then a clean install of the driver. Got another BSOD, this on related to DX.

    Latest V2 here - Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

    So, as it stands it seems like something is wrong with the GPU. I guess I'll have to look in to my warranty. Have a feeling that's going to have expired.

    This was a third misbehaving GPU driver so see what you can do to find a swap for testing purposes.


    Make two tests:
    1) Test a new GPU card in the problematic computer
    2) Test the GPU card from the problematic computer in another computer

    Also check to see if there is another port in the motherboard.

    Thanks zbook, don't really have any gaming friends so may have to pay to take it to the place where I bought the card and see what they can diagnose.

    Will try and reseat the card in a different slot in the meantime.
