Solution 2: Uninstall the AMD driver in safe mode

    Only way to get rid of that for me (asus F555D, amd A10 + R6 M340DX) was to reinstall win 10 point blank using a cd and starting the installation from the running OS, selecting the option not to keep personal data, and having it download updates before starting. After that device driver was installed regularly, i made a bunch of recovery points while doing the process but until now everything seems fine.
