If you’re using an AMD graphics card but randomly run into display issues, you may want to reinstall the AMD drivers to fix it. Have no idea how to do this? Don’t worry. In this post, we’ll walk you through the entire process to reinstall AMD drivers, easily and quickly.

2 steps to reinstall AMD drivers:

  1. Uninstall AMD drivers in Device Manager
  2. Install new AMD drivers
The screenshots below come from Windows 10, but the method also applies to Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Step 1 – Uninstall AMD drivers in Device Manager

You can directly go to Device Manager, a Windows built-in tool for viewing and controlling hardware, to uninstall the AMD drivers.

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to open the Run dialog. Then, type devmgmt.msc in the field and click OK.

2) Double-click Display adapters to expand the list.

3) Right-click your AMD graphics card (In my case, it’s AMD Radeon RX 570) and click Uninstall device.

4) Tick Delete the driver software for this device, and click Uninstall.

When it’s done, AMD graphics card will disappear from the list.

Step 2 – Install new AMD drivers

After finishing the steps above, simply restart your computer, and Windows will automatically detect the AMD graphics and install the appropriate drivers for you.

However, Windows doesn’t always provide the latest device drivers. In this case, you should try the other two ways to get the correct and up-to-date AMD drivers: manually or automatically.

Option 1 – Manually download and install drivers from AMD

AMD keeps updating its drivers to fix bugs or add features. To get them, you need to go to the AMD support website, find the drivers corresponding with your specific flavor of Windows version (for example, Windows 32 bit) and download the driver manually.

Once you’ve downloaded the correct drivers for your system, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.

Option 2 – Install the AMD drivers automatically

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to install the AMD driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. 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.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks:

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. 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
The Pro version of Driver Easy comes with full technical support.
