I don't expect any solutions because apparently ... "There Isn't Any!" :smash:

 

I just needed to B!t¢h!

 

Yesterday a notice popped up stating that security updates could Not be installed unless the latest version of Windows 10 was installed!

Hoping against hope and against my knowing better (through the previous three 'updates'), I went ahead and allowed the update!

Even after months of research and the installing of software that was supposed to prevent the previous disasters (display, completely unusable because of smeared colors and unreadable text) ... Nothing Has Changed!!

The same messed up display even after trying various 'fixes' and Microsoft suggestions!

I have read that computers with AMD graphics are having various problems but as of now .. I can't find a solution?

The funny part?

When I do the update and the graphics are bad, I go to the device manager, uninstall the display adapter and restart the pc.

Microsoft automatically installs a display adapter that clears everything up!

The Not So Funny Part?

Within 30 seconds, Microsoft deletes whatever adapter they installed (the good one) and reverts back to the crappy one!!

Try as I might, I can't prevent them from doing this!

I also suspect that more than just the display adapter is the problem because I have tried a dozen different ones that are compatible with my computer and none of them work!
(All of them from either Lenovo or AMD)

So ... Rollback #4!

My pc is a Lenovo desktop.

Processor: AMD A10-7800 Radeon R7, 12 Compute Cores 4C+8G (Cores: 2)
Memory: 11 Gbytes (DDR3)

Video: AMD Radeon R7 Graphics (1 Gb)

Disk: ST2000DM001-1ER164 (2 Tb)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home (64-bit)

Are you installing latest version of graphic card driver from AMD Support site.

It's a chipset (on-board graphics) and not a video card.

I don't know if inserting a stand alone card would make any difference and I don't want to waste the time or money to find out.

The on-board graphics are fine for what I need.

And yes, I've even been in contact with AMD and Lenovo.

 

AMD has heard of the problem but has no answer for it.

Mod Edit:  Merged with existing topic on same issues - Hamluis.

 

Lenovo
Windows 10 Home (x64)
 
Hard Drive: ST2000DM001-1ER164 [Hard drive] (2000.40 GB)

Display Driver AMD Radeon™ R7 Graphics [Integrated Display adapter]
    Driver Version: 23.20.788.0 (512 MB)


Processor:
3.50 gigahertz AMD A10-7800 Radeon R7, 12 Compute Cores 4C+8G


Since I have been fighting this Windows Update (1709) for the last six months, I have found no answer to fixing the messed up/unusable display problem!

I can't update beyond the 1511 update version where the display is excellent as it was with all of the updates before it!

I have also never come across anyone else that has the same exact problem!

There are plenty of folks that have a problem with the update but not my exact problem.


My question: Would it be practical to list my display drivers and the specs of my machine and ask those who have a similar model ... What display drivers they are using?

I have used every tool and tried every suggestion by others to:

Stop the update from loading a new driver with the update.

(Stopped them but didn't help)

Stopping the update itself (only a delay is possible in Home units)

Installing drivers from AMD. (No help either)

.
I am at a total loss as to where to go now. 8(

After all of the Months that I have been fighting and rolling back this creators update, I was determined that today was going to be the Last time I would bother fighting for control of this computer!

Again ... today, the 'update' was forced on me
I was prepared to toss the machine and go and find a Mac!

Guess What?

Seven Months, endless tools, apps and suggestions for a fix ... the cursing and rollbacks have now come to an end!
YAAaaaaaaaaa!!!

For those who were wondering why I have been b!+ching for the last seven months about my display after the creators update, the following camera shot will give you an idea of WHY the machine became almost useless!

Zc4_DTMo222222222222222.jpg

That is how the desktop display looked and it didn't get any better when opening web pages or reading text!

None of the updates that were installed prior to the 1709 version allowed (on this machine) the adjustment to the bpc or color depth!

The adjustment comes with the Radeon Settings that control the onboard display chip.

It was pure luck that I decided to look at the settings on the updated driver after this update!

All I had to do after all of these months was to change my color depth settings from 10bpc to 8bpc!

That option didn't show until this update!
(See the picture below)

It's Over!
All of these Months of frustration ... ended with the single click of the mouse!
