I’m getting an update error when playing games on my PC. The error is:
Please update your AMD Radeon driver
Detected AMD Radeon driver version 11.1. The recommended driver version is 11.7 or later. Please update your drivers at http://www.amd.com/en before playing the game.
I already downloaded the update but the installer doesn’t install. It keeps saying system error. I want to know now how to force upgrade my driver? Is it possible? Any ideas will be appreciated.
How to force upgrade AMD Radeon Driver?
I’m sorry but I think there is no such thing as force upgrade on any device. There is no way you can install the driver for that device if the driver is not designed for the device. Actually, the error happened to you is even better because here you know what version you should be upgrading to unlike other issues where you have no idea what the problem is.
If you already tried downloading and installing the said update and still no luck, try downloading from AMD Graphics Drivers and Software. This page allows you to select your graphics adapter’s model or you can allow it to automatically detect your device and install the driver for you. And very importantly when downloading an updated driver for your device, make sure to accurately select your operating system from the available options because obviously, the driver is available in different operating system versions.
You cannot install the same driver that is designed for install on a different operating system. Also, make sure to check the other links available on the page if you have other concerns. Additionally, visit Can’t Unpack AMD Graphics Driver Content for another option on installing the driver.
