Anyone knows how to fix this problem? Seems that unistalling and re-installing doesn’t work.


Note that all the entries about OpenGL say (null). I’m not smart enough to give you any specific advice but this suggests there is something wrong with your AMD Radeon driver installation. For starters you might try downloading and installing the latest driver from AMD or even just reinstalling the driver that is on the machine now.

Thank you for the answer.
Actually seems that my AMD isn’t correctly installed or something doesn’t connect right with windows. Even if it sounds strange because I could work for some days… Maybe there were some undeground updates that got in collision…

Thank you for the moment, i will update this topic as I reinstall the Graphi Card manually

My guess is you made the common mistake that a “brand new” computer is ready for software.
They never are.

Windows (or macOS) needs to be updated, Windows display drivers need to be manually updated (the automatic update checking tool have a near 100% failure rate), and the computer itself may need BIOS and other deep level updates from the maker. This last set of updates is generally not required to get a new computer ready for software installation.

For future reference, here are links to the primary GPU maker’s driver sites:



Ok i solved, thank you all for the support, it was just a Windows update that was not yet installed. Also the Graphic Card was crashing for that.
Thank you all!
