Windows 10 64-bit
Anyway, my driver is currently at version 359.00, works fine (almost). On the 1st of December, 359.06 came out. When updating it (express or clean), halfway through the installation, the laptop's screen suddenly goes blank, and then I'm at the bios screen. Windows loads up, although the colours looked a little washed out. Guessing that means the driver isn't acting right. And what do you know, within 30 seconds (of doing anything), the laptop suddenly dies without warning. Turning the laptop back on loads windows, but again in 30 seconds, dead. Eventually, after turning the laptop back on after the 5th time, instead, windows restore loads up. Thank fuck I did a windows restore before updating. After the restore, Windows loads perfectly fine again, no issues. The driver is back at 359.00 though, obviously.
On the 21st of December, version 361.43 came out, but the exact same thing happens again when trying to update to this. So, I'm on 359.00 again.
To be honest, 359.00 is almost fine. COD:BO3 works fine, Generations is fine, almost everything is fine. There's just 2 problems. Sonic Lost Worlds likes to freeze on the drill part on Silent Forest Act 4 and then crash, so now I can't carry on with my Sonic Lost World playthroughs. Also, when using Sony Vegas Pro 13, not often, but sometimes it will just suddenly crash without warning. When creating a video, or rendering. That's annoying because if a render is going to take 2 hours, and it freezes halfway, then that's just time wasted.
Anyway, a new driver has come out! 361.75 on the 27th January. I created a restore point first. So I've tried installing this. Doing an express installation does the same thing as the other version, but a clean installation actually works! And installs. Now restart your computer to finish the installation. Okay....
Now Windows won't load at all. It just loads the bios over and over again. Eventually, after trying this for about 5 minutes (which I have no control over by the way) it brings up the recovery program in DOS mode (or whatever it's called these days). Luckily, system restore is an option, so I do that, and again, back to 359.00.
Just tried Sonic Lost World and it still freezes (as expected). So, by the looks of it, I can't update my driver. Is this for all 980m users? Or am I being unlucky? Is there anything else I can try? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
