Most of the time the settings application fails to install.
Sometimes Windows 10 seg faults and reboots in the middle of installing the drivers.
I found a 50% success rate if I uninstalled the drivers, deleted the old drivers install directory, ran the AMD clean-up utility, then manually go into the registry and remove any AMD references.
Up until December's driver I could just download and run the installer.
Up until October I could use the built in update button.
I didn't try the February drivers, as I didn't want to fight with my system to get things working again.
The first thing to do when diagnosing graphics driver problems is to use DDU, Display Driver Uninstaller (no-cost for DDU):https://www.wagnardsoft.com/
Make sure you follow its instructions to be in safe-mode when doing the initial uninstall. There is a tutorial in the given site, if this is your first time using DDU then make sure to read that before you use the program.
After that, install your AMD drivers as usual and now that the system is known-clean you shouldn't have issues. For every upgrade after that use the AMD "clean install" option for best chances of success.
DDU is a reputable program and is linked often off of the Guru3D forums for AMD drivers:https://forums.guru3d.com/forums/videocards-amd-radeon-catalyst-drivers-section.46/
If you still have problems after the above then I would suspect compatibility problems for your product and driver or product and other hardware in your system, or hardware failure problems of some sort.
If you have specific problems then posting on the Guru3D AMD driver sub-forum is the best way to get help. When it comes to AMD graphics drivers there aren't many places with the quality of help you'll get there.This comment was edited on Mar 6, 2018, 13:24.
