    Stable Video drivers, AMD and NVidia, have been my biggest hurdle so far. I had endless ccc has stopped working popups on most of the preview builds. It got so bad I just gave up trying to run 10 on my laptop. I have 10 on it now, upgraded yesterday. I haven't used it enough to say it won't happen again, crosses fingers that it won't. Not so many issues with NVidia, but the one or two times they failed I couldn't even boot into Windows. Just a black screen, not even a cursor. So far all is good on my desktop PC. I haven't fired up a game yet though.

    I haven't had the "CCC has stopped working" blurb in the last few builds, so I hope it's a thing of the past.

    I have amd-catalyst-15.7-win10-64bit.exe in my downloads folder, that I downloaded a day or two ago. Haven't installed them yet. My laptop is running with whatever windows 10 installed.

    This one was recommended, downloaded and installed by CCC.

    We have the first sunny day in over a week here today, so latter on I will be getting my laptop out on my deck for a bit. and see what happens. It doesn't happen for me until use it a bit. I think it was when a graphics switch was triggered. It has an AMD APU so it has a GPU in the CPU and a dedicated mobile GPU. Both AMD.

    Ok, just checking, my laptop has an AMD A10 APU and that's what comes up for me.

    Gamers, beware of 15.7.1 drivers, I have seen reports of them making mess of and slowing down games like GTA 5.
    I actually found those drivers to help quite a bit with the lagfest that is Batman Arkham Knight on windows 8.1, since updating to them today the game plays a lot smoother.

    Using 15.7.1 drivers and tried enabling virtual super resolution in cc and my desktop is 2560x1440 on a 1920x1080 monitor. Even tried in a few games the higher resolution slows the game down sometimes but I enjoy the increase in quality.

    Oh I fully understand that, but with so much extensive testing you'd have thought that drivers that are forced on you on release should at least not keep crashing your PC!I'm sure they'll get there soon, I just feel for the people who've upgraded their machines expecting greatness only to end up with constant BSODs with no chance of booting into Safe Mode to correct the issue.
    No crashing here...mine are working very well with Win10x64 and I have a huge software library of games & other applications. In fact, the latest drivers, the 15.7.1's, are the best I've seen from AMD in awhile--both the 15.7's & the 15.7.1's...

    As far as updates being forced on you with Win10...that has nothing to do with AMD...it's Microsoft forcing the updates...and unless you've been living under a rock for the last few days, you should have heard about the tool Microsoft released recently to allow you to hide the Win10 updates you don't want...

    Also, if you own a laptop, chances are good you cannot use the AMD Mobility drivers with that laptop, because those drivers work with only a handful of products...and probably will not support vendor-specific laptop gpu features like dual GPUs that use Intel gpus to conserve power but "switch" to an AMD GPU to provide enough performance to play games. Support for laptop-specific features like that come *only* from the manufacturer of your particular laptop, and nowhere else. If you bought such a laptop with 8.1 installed and you decide to upgrade to Win10 and your laptop manufacturer doesn't provide Win10 drivers for that particular model--chances are very good that you are screwed, unfortunately, and you might even have to revert to 8.1 until your laptop maker releases Win10 hardware drivers for your model--if he ever does. Unfortunately, most laptop vendors would prefer it if you bought a new laptop with Win10 drivers and OS pre-installed...

    People don't understand that buying a laptop is not at all like buying a desktop. Laptops are often custom-made and because of that require custom-made hardware drivers, whereas desktops are standardized around generic standards that everyone uses. When people buy the same GPUs for desktops off the shelf at Best Buy, for instance, everybody is buying the same card. The exact same card. The card will plug into the exact same PCIe bus slot in every machine, regardless of motherboard manufacturer--and the cards will all work like they should. That's the beauty and wonder of hardware standards--they've made life immeasurably simpler and easier for everyone--unless you buy a laptop. If you own a laptop it is literally potluck as to any expectation that generic AMD Mobility drivers will function as desired. Again, with laptops, best policy is always to get your hardware drivers from the manufacturer of your laptop.

    With AMD mobility drivers, the rule is: if the drivers work as expected in your laptop then you are good to go. If the drivers don't work and continuously cause problems for you on a repetitive basis, then you *must* get your GPU drivers from the manufacturer of your laptop model if you want to enjoy any kind of stability. The fact that the particular laptop model that you have elected to purchase uses custom designs is not a "problem" that AMD (or nVidia) can do anything about.
