Windows 10: How to Fix AMD Drivers

AMD drivers are mostly used in almost half of gaming computer systems. The high processing feature provides a broader range of graphics to create a life-like environment in games. AMD drivers, however, are sometimes faced with crashes and problems along the way. Below are a few fixes for these drivers:

Update the Latest Version of AMD Drivers

Most crashes of AMD drivers are caused by using outdated versions. As Windows 10 gets important updates, some releases of AMD become obsolete. Updating them may be just a simple fix. Alternatively, instead of updating the current version, uninstall it and install a fresh new version of AMD drivers. Some tools, such as DDU, will help you with the trick.

Uninstall or Disable Browser Extensions

Some users reported crashes while watching videos in the browser. Not all browsers experienced this problem. However, a common issue was browser installed extensions. To solve this problem, you must identify the misbehaving extensions and remove it. To do that, open your browser, click on tools then extensions. Disable or uninstall the driver identified.

Alter the TdrDelay Value in the Registry

TdrDelay value is responsible for checking the time taken for a driver to respond. If a response is not provided after the specified time, it will trigger a restart to the AMD drivers. Restarts might cause errors, therefore, crashing the driver. To prevent the issue, you are encouraged to increase the delay time, that is, the TdrValue.

Temporarily Uninstall your Browser

In some instances, browsers such as Chrome or Firefox cause AMD drivers to crash. Browsers usually commit much of the graphics power when loading high-quality pictures or videos. Therefore, it is recommended that you temporarily uninstall these browsers before fixing your AMD drivers. Afterward, you can reinstall them without any problems.

Update Your Motherboard Drivers

New versions of AMD need to run only on updated versions of the software. Features in old motherboard systems might not be able to support the high power requirements for AMD drivers. Updating your motherboard is therefore required. To do so, visit your manufacturer’s website or stores and let them update the features for you. After that check, if the problem persists.

Down Clock your Device 

Down clocking or otherwise known as underclocking, is the process of modifying your device’s circuits to a lower clock rate. However, these procedures are only used by experts and advanced users. Amateurs might permanently damage their devices. Do this at your own risk. Nevertheless, the process improves the stability of your AMD drivers.

Update Windows

Every six months, a new version or feature updates are released. For your machine to run smoothly, install these new updates as soon as they are released. Not only do they have new features but also bug fixes. AMD drivers might be affected by bugs on your windows, causing it to crash. Frequently updating might prove to be vital.
