    Do you mind me asking which AMD/ATI card you have?

    Nice card :D!!

    This is fairly interesting as some users on mobility cards had some issues with reboots during install. I believe AMD is aware of this issue as it has been mentioned in their 14.9 release notes. (This bug goes back to this early AMD "rework" circa 14.4 beta 3 - newer than 14.4 WHQL)

    The only thing I can add to this post is to watch out using the AMD Uninstall Utility. A previous version of that tool damaged peoples Windows copies by removing too much. AMD pulled the tool so I am not sure if their new version is less aggressive or not. i.e. h xx p://www .overclock.net/t/1486368/important-dont-ever-use-the-amd-clean-uninstall-utility

    However I do recommend Wagnard's DDU utility. (Not sure if he has updated it for Windows 10 yet).

    It is generally good to have "Windows Standard VGA/ Drivers" prior to installing any new graphics drivers. :thumbsup:
