How To: Remove Your AMD GPU Drivers (New - 2016) - Page 6

post #51 of 452
Would you do this for every time you update drivers or only if you're having issues? I know driver sweeper is a POS for AMD drivers, but it would surprise me that the auto-install in new drivers wouldn't use the same registries at least.

Update: More reports coming in that this guide by myself is fixing mega driver issues for users. People off the thread have also contacted me to thank me over it. Give it a try and keep the reports coming in!

this very handy since AMD Catalyst 11.5 is already released

11.5 release notes http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst115ReleaseNotes.aspx

11.5 http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/downloads.aspx<-- choose your OS

11.5a hotfix http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst115ahotfix.aspx

tried the guide in installing the new drivers i must say it's really better than Driver Cleaner..
although it's more laborious but it's worth it imo

Encountered a problem with Driver Cleaner after uninstalling AMD Drivers it wont let me
install drivers via Installer i have to go to Device Manager to install drivers tried every
thing to resolve it in my frustration i reformatted my PC hehe.. this the first time since
i reformatted my PC to install driver update so far so good & never will i use softwares
again to uninstall drivers for me..

thankfully i bumped into this thread the day i discovered 11.5 Catalyst was released biggrin.gif
