AMD has announced that the intermittent driver timeout, system freezes, or blue screen of death (BSOD) issue that occurs with certain displays on RX 7000 series GPUs has been fixed with the release of AMD Software Adrenalin Edition 23.3.1 graphics card driver.
Earlier this year in January, many users reported that turning off the MPO feature on Windows 11 seemed to solve problems such as lagging, black/white screens, flickering, and driver timeout issues in Windows systems, as well as browsers like Chrome and Edge.
Driver timeout issues may trigger AMD’s error reporting tool, and in rare cases, it could lead to BSOD crashes. At least the issue has now been fixed on RX 7000 series GPUs. However, users with RX 6000 or older graphics cards still need to use the method of turning off MPO.
Readers can download the Adrenalin Edition 23.3.1 WHQL driver via the Radeon Settings application on Windows or directly from the official website. It is important to note that the “Factory Reset” option should not be used when updating the driver, as this may cause the operating system to become corrupted.
