[Critical] Opera GX Black Screens after updating AMD Drivers

  • Hello, Earlier today I Updated my AMD Display Drivers to version 27.20.1032.2. Then I opened Opera GX and Saw that Opera GX is nothing but a Black Screen. I Tried restarting, re-installing, etc. but nothing happened. Then I started rickrolling, I mean rolling back the drivers. And, It worked. I know the cause of the black screen.

    This is a critical problem because a lot of people are going to start updating too.

    How to reproduce:

    • Have an AMD Ryzen™ CPU
    • Go to Windows Updates
    • Check for updates
    • Under Optional Updates you can install your Opera-Breaking Display Driver (Don't)

    Exact Name of the Update: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. - Display - 27.20.1032.2

    My Computer specs:

    • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 4800H with Radeon Graphics
    • RAM: 16GB
    • GPU 0 (Deticated): NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti
    • GPU 1 (Intergraded): AMD Radeon™ Graphics
  • @dan-gaming The problem happens with regular Opera? What about other Chromium based browsers?

  • @leocg I know it works on chrome because I used it while trying to fix the problem. I might try regular Opera sometime later.
