Install your driver using a driver updater

If you see the error when installing an AMD driver, you can try getting around this issue by using another install method. You can try a driver updater, because they are usually easier to use.

The driver updater we recommend is DriverMax — it’s powerful and easy to use, and you can use it to update drivers for free!

To use DriverMax to update your graphics driver:

Step 1: Download DriverMax and install it on your computer.

Step 2: Launch DriverMax, and scan for driver updates.

Step 3: Update your NVIDIA driver (click the update button next to it).

That’s it! That’s how you can update a driver with DriverMax.

Note that there are some limitations in the free version of DriverMax. Like you can only update two drivers per day. If you want to get rid of these limits and use its full features, you need to upgrade to its PRO version.
