So i've updated drivers from AMD website for windows 8.1. I would keep the old drivers but my After Effects Element 3D plug in needs the updated driver for it to work correctly. So my projects are at a hault.


The isues ive been having after updating is a blank screen when booting pc to desktop mode. I get a flickering mouse cursor and if its inactive it disappears.  My only fix (a lazy one at that) is cloning my old hard drive to the SSD that has the bad driver. Ive tried this 3 times!

 

There is no way in hell i'm udating the driver again without getting one that I know will work for sure. My current driver version is fairly old but hey it works> 8.982.6.0

If anyone knows if AMD or HP has new drivers that workplease let me know this is not cool and I have work that needs to get done!

Don't know if this will solve your issue but i recently struggled with crashing on my desktop graphics when installing catalyst. I found (after hours of searching online) that the virtu mvp is not compatible with 8.1 and causes the graphics driver to crash. Just uninstall virtu mvp and it might work.

What exactly is virtu mvp? Id like to try this but I'm afraid if I do update the drivers from the AMD website I'll get stuck at the black screen rendering my system completely useless again...

virtu mvp is a program that supposedly improves graphic performance. If you have it it will be listed in programs and features. Good luck.
