AMD Adrenalin driver software not accessible when installing official latest graphics drivers drivers

Hi guys,

unluckily using the official drivers from the Lenovo Legion Go driver page I don't get access to the driver settings, like it happened with an older beta driver already. At that time you could run a file hidden in some folder from the driver package and then everything was fine again... Now I couldn't even find such file...

I tried reinstalling it cleanly after deinstalling the graphics and the chipset drivers and cleaning up the rest a few times with the AMD driver removal tool, and one time even with DDU, but nothing of this helped...

As I installed the latest driver posted in this forum I still had the possibility to access to the AMD Adrenalin driver settings... 

With the one downloaded from the driver page there is no chance though...

-> As I would have preferred not to manually have to make the registry change for activating integer scaling using the one posted in this forum, but to use the meant implementation in the drivers, does anyone have tips on how to fix this?

I even had the newest AMD Ryzen 7840U drivers installed temporarily, even including a HYPR-FX Eco mode, but as only the 1600p resolution was selectable as one of the Legion Go's proper 16:10 resolutions and all the others were distorted it doesn't make sense for me to use it...

  • I will bring this up with our RD team and see if we can modify future VGA driver updates to include Adrenalin install.

  • Just to clarify something, the official Lenovo driver does install the Adrenaline software automatically, it's just when sideloading the 780M drivers that the install needs to be done manually. Ben please tell your team that the AFMF update needs to come out ASAP when its available. I know that it's currently on preview/beta but it's slated to be released on the 24th of January. I can't stress enough what difference it makes to use this technology on the Go. I can actually show you:

    That is actually not fully true...

    Once you "sideloaded" a 780m driver at all, you can't get the normal behaviour back, of the newest official Lenovo Legion Go drivers automatically installing the adrenalin software at all!

    At least this is my constant experience so far on my device, and the behaviour stays the same with every new official driver update..

    There must be some registry entries/driver parts staying on the system preventing the automatic adrenalin software install... Even though I'm using Windows since almost 30 years now, there could be Sweat smilemething I'm missing out, but I don't believe so Sweat smileStuck out tongue closed eyes...:

    I tried out everything I could; normal uninstall of the vga drivers and of the chipset drivers isn't enough anyway. Also additionally using the official AMD driver removal tool isn't enough, even if I add in another cleanup step after, using DDU in safe mode supposed to delete any residees of drivers and registry entries, there still must be something left preventing the automatic Adrenalin install... I just really don't know what it is...

    The only way I would know/think about, would be a full Windows 11 reinstall /maybe a factory reset of the system would be enough, but I don't know what exactly happens with a factory reset on the Legion GO, as I never tried it out and sincerely I would like to find another way then those, now that I installed all the games and software I need onto my 2 TB SSD of my GO...

  • Yes therefore the cleanup process running their app is recommended by AMD
