Fix 1: Update the faulty AMD driver (nearly always fixes the problem)

Perhaps the most common cause of the AMD driver crash error is an outdated/corrupted/faulty device driver.

Fortunately, this is also one of the easiest problems to fix.

There are two ways to update your video driver: manually and automatically.

Update the AMD driver manually – You can update your drivers manually by going to AMD’s official websites, and searching for the latest drivers for all your video card. But if you take this approach, be sure to choose the drivers that are compatible with the exact model number of your hardware, and your version of Windows system.


Update the AMD driver automatically – If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your drivers manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing. Driver Easy handles it all.

  1. Download and install Driver Easy.
  2. Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers. 

  3. Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

    You can also click Update to do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.

  4. Restart your computer and keep track of your computer to see if the problem is solved.

Fix 2: Roll back the faulty AMD driver

If you never have this AMD driver crashing issue until recently when you updated the most recent driver, chances are it’s this new driver that’s causing the problem. So we should try rolling it back to the previous version.

Here’s how:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key  and R at the same time, then type devmgmt.msc into the box and press Enter.

  2. Locate on the faulty AMD driver and double-click on it.
  3. Click the Driver tab and then click Roll Back Driver.

  4. Click Yes to confirm. Then the driver will be restored to a previous version.

  5. Restart you computer and check if the problem is resolved.
