    Default Unable to Update AMD GPU Driver.

    Can anyone tell me or want to speculate on why installing graphics card driver updates is so retardedly, stupidly hard to do. I swear I'm almost sure I've NEVER installed graphics card updates without having to research why it's not just installing for at least 2 to 3 hours or just finally giving up. I mean I've been using computers since the beginning you know the IBM compatibles. I had one of the first Pentium 60's remember the ones with the flaw in it. And I have a lot of skill with computers. Hardware, Software and Internet technologies and yet...

    We don't have DMA conflicts or IRQ conflicts anymore, any other piece of software or drivers you want to update you just say update or download the new drivers or version and it just installs. Just like that. And then there's GPU drivers and software... I'm not even going to get into it.

    And I'm not talking entry level hardware here either. I don't buy top of the line GPUs simply because they would be completely wasted on me since I don't play ANY games and I don't use them for anything but running lots of screens which really doesn't take a lot of processing power just lots of connectors. But I buy reasonably powerful GPUs just because it just wouldn't be right to put entry level GPUs in my LOADED machines.

    I am however interested in updating the drivers on my other machine since I discovered quite by accident since I almost never bother to update my GPU drivers since it's such a pain but did so and discovered much to my delight it allowed me to increase the resolution on all my 27" screens from 1920x1080 to 2560x1440. I'm tickled this is even possible I didn't think it was possible to increase the resolution past the "native resolution" of an LCD screen. Now I want to do it on my other machine but the AMD installer has been stuck at 2% for the last 3 hours. Like I said completely retarded. I've got the latest Windows updates installed and most of my other stuff is current as well just not the GPU drivers. Even this machine it has 3 GPUs in it (2 AMD GPUs & an NVIDIA GPU and neither of them fully installed their respective updates however they installed enough that the ability to increase the resolution on their connected screens was included in the updated components. Yay. lol

    Help Me.

    Thanks in advance.

    This is so unreal. I just can't believe a component as major at the GPU can be sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hard to install. It's just completely retarded. It's been 5 hours now of uninstalling and retrying, uninstalling and retrying, uninstalling and retrying I've tried a couple of different uninstallers now the AMD one and the DDU recommended by you Photonboy. But nothing lets the driver or even the Catalyst Control Center install. I just can't understand it. How can it possibly be this hard. I mean how can both these companies be THIS BAD at writing software and drivers for their products that they can't just install themselves. clear out whatever's blocking them and insert themselves where they need to be. They need to hire some hackers obviously none of their legitimate programmers have any idea how to write code. lol. I Just don't get it. And this isn't just me that's having issues. There are huge numbers of folks out there that are asking for help for this exact issue for MANY different cards. It's Unbelievable.

    Uninstall and remove any traces of the previous graphics drivers using Display Driver Uninstaller and then freshly install the latest drivers by downloading them from AMD's website.

    Here's another vote for DDU.
    It really does clean all of the crap that old drivers leave behind on your system.
    Using it has fixed GPU installation problems for me more than once.
