AMD Adrenalin Edition fixes driver problem and Windows BSOD bug
AMD has now released a new version after it became aware of significant Windows problems caused by the Adrenalin driver. AMD previously warned about the issue that can cause the operating system to crash. The new version number is 22.40.37.01 for Windows 10 and Windows 11. The update is already available.
The problem was triggered by a previous update: According to reports, the errors primarily appeared as soon as a new Windows update was to be installed or when the “Factory Reset” option was active.
Fixed BSOD and timeouts
As soon as a user tried to load and install the driver and general Windows update at the same time, unforeseen problems occurred, which led to the so-called blue screen of death (BSOD) for some users. As we have already reported on the reported errors, in some cases only using the Windows automatic recovery tools to solve the problem helped. Other users could only escape the bug by reinstalling Windows. All AMD users are now strongly recommended to update, also because there are security-related changes.
Also, as a precautionary measure, AMD has temporarily disabled factory reset with this update. Further information on the update is available from AMD in the support area .
