Hi I got this PC back in 2015. Never got it to work right. From day 1 there's been something subtley wrong with the gfx card which causes it to occasionally crash or not work when some programs use gfx. Doesn't have to be high end gfx, low tech gfx can cause the crash. Most of the time the crash is recoverable, but not always in which case it goes to bsod.

People say get most up to date drivers. but any raedon installer past v15 freezes \ crashes. v15 does install, but the problem persists.

Currently uninstalled raedon drivers, rdy to start fresh

 

Wonder if anyone here knows how to fix it. thx

The video card is at 1°C - that's probably what causes the installer to freeze...

There's some chance that the card has been faulty from new, and should have been returned for repair or replacement under warranty. It's probably unlikely that we're going to be able to happen on another cause here on the forums, but if I had the system on my test bench, my approach would be to test the card in another computer. If it still had problems, that would confirm the card itself was unhappy, and save a lot of time and effort eliminating every other possibility.

If the card works fine in a different computer, then you could say it would be worth beginning a process of elimination to work out why it has problems in the original system.
