A bug in an AMD driver can lead to a complete reinstall of Windows

A bug in the Adrenalin 23.2.1 WHQL driver for the Radeon RX 7900 and older graphics cards may lead to the blue screen of death and the demolition of Windows, which will require reinstalling the operating system. AMD has already acknowledged the problem and is working on a solution.

The Adrenalin 23.2.1 WHQL driver was released in mid-February, and some users began to complain that the system might crash when installing a new driver. AMD has figured out that this happens when updates and the new Adrenalin driver are installed on the computer at the same time with the “factory reset” feature enabled. Now the company advises not to use the “factory reset” function during the installation of the driver on the computer. It is also recommended that you create a Windows restore point before installing the driver.
