HUGE Problem with AMD graphics card

  Guest 1234512633 18:54 14 Mar 2018

Hello guys, I have a big problem here. I have Lenovo Z51-70 laptop.


  1. Intel i7-5500U 2.4ghz
  2. 8Gb of DDR3 RAM
  3. AMD Radeon R9 M375

System is runing on Windows 8 64bit

The problem I'm facing is that my AMD gpu is not working. I tried reinstalling Windows, downgrading it to Windows 7, I even tried Linux. Nothing helped. When I disable the gpu in "Device manager", its all good. No errors, no crashes. I can play games, work on it, but it runs on integrated Intel HD Graphics. When I enable the gpu problems starts (photos of the problems)

Let me know if it's a digital or mechanical failure.

Thanks for you attention.

Sounds like either a hardware failure or incorrect drivers but I favour the first option.

Have you tried updating all drivers? They may be corrupt? You can use the free program from IOBit. See here click here It's free to see if it works before you go to the trouble and expense of looking into hardware failure and replacement of the GPU.
