I have Windows 10 x64 Pro build 1511 with all latest updates. My graphic adapter ( discrete ) is an ATI radeon HD 5450. I have installed the latest drivers downloaded from AMD site. But now under Device Manager i can see my graphic Adapter installed correctly , but when i click on Drivers Details , i get a message : No driver files are required or have been loaded for this device When i right click on Desktop and go to Adapter properties , i see that Windows is using "Microsoft Basic Display driver".


How can i resolve this problem ?

Thank you !


The latest AMD driver only works for newer cards starting with the Radeon HD 77xx cards, not the older HD5xxx cards.

You need to install this special driver for the older HD5400 card

  • The driver that you've suggested has damaged my windows. Now when is starting , windows remain on a black screen with mouse cursor and a circle that is round forever. I can't start even on start mode. – Deni Sano Jul 2 '16 at 10:34
  • turn the PC off during start for 3 times and you should get to the recovery options. Here use System Restore to go to the point before the driver was installed. Also before doing sch things, always create a backp. – magicandre1981 Jul 3 '16 at 6:37
