AMD CPU display issues

Home » News » Windows 10 updates trigger display issues on AMD computers

Microsoft rolled out a series of Windows 10 updates a few days ago in order to patch the latest CPU security vulnerabilities identified by Google.

Unfortunately, many users reported that the latest Windows 10 updates often caused more harm than good. Microsoft already added a series of bugs on the list of known issues, but users revealed that the list is actually much longer than that.

We recently published an article listing the most frequent issues that users have experienced after installing the latest updates. The respective post echoed a lot of comments and we noticed that all of them referred to AMD CPUs.

Severe display problems on AMD computers

Our readers confirmed that AMD systems lock up with the Windows logo showing on a black screen as soon as they update their computers.

This problem is even more severe when office computers are affected, as this reader reports:

Know someone where all machines using AMD CPUs in their office have this issue. They can’t restore or anything. All Intel CPU machines updated fine.

Indeed, it seems that there is a compatibility issue between the latest Windows 10 updates and AMD CPUs. Intel machines don’t seem to be affected by this problem.

Microsoft has yet to issue any comments on this matter despite the significant number of user complaints.

This is not the first time when computers powered by AMD processors have been plagued by display issues. As a quick reminder, just one month ago thousands of users complained about display problems on AMD Radeon video cards.

Microsoft quickly released KB4057291 but even back then the update failed to fix the issue for all users. The nightmare is not over yet for AMD PC owners as January updates brought a new problem.

Have you encountered the same issues after installing the Windows 10 updates released this month? Did you find any workarounds to fix the problem?
