    So I recently purchased a refurbished PC, which is: Dell Optiplex 980 x64 based. It has the following basic specs:
    CPU: i5 650, 3.20GHz (Dual-Core)
    RAM: 8GB
    Windows 10 Home Version 10.0.17134 Build 17134
    Graphics card: AMD Radeon HD 3450

    When I tried to run a few games like osu!, Minecraft, and CS: GO, I received an error message in all of these games. And they all basically mean that my PC doesn't have enough graphics drivers to run these programs. When I checked my device information, I found out that my Graphics card is recognized, but no drivers are installed. The inf file my card uses is "oem4.inf (ati2mtag_Legacy section)."

    I tried to install the ATI Catalysts, but that didn't help. It resulted in "OK" messages. I did try literally all versions for my driver. Another fix I tried to do was roll back driver, which apparently worked for a few people, even for people who have the same problem with the same driver. But in my case, the rollback driver option is greyed out (meaning I cannot do that). Since no PC can run without a graphics driver, my graphics are currently run through Microsoft Basic Display Adapter which is the most basic thing you can expect in a computer. The status of the driver is "Not Available/No updates required."

    I read a post similar but with an NVidia driver which can be found here. I am not completely sure if this can work. I think downgrading my Windows to Windows 7 might be a solution as the official website only has the catalysts for Windows Vista/7/8.1, but I do not want to do that because Microsoft is soon going to stop support for Windows 7 (and everyone can agree that Windows 8.1 is Windows 10 but worse). So downgrading my OS is not an option yet.

    I am also not sure if my PC has integrated graphics, and if switching to integrated might help or not. I could have tried that right when I got that but the website I bought it through enabled a BIOS password, and Dell PCs do not have easy backdoor passwords. I will be honest here, I am a newbie and lazy so I do not bother to reset my BIOS password. Has anyone had a similar problem, not necessarily with this exact Graphic card or ATI cards at all? If yes did you fix it? Buying a new graphics card is not in my budget at the moment, but apparently, that is the only option I have. Unless there's a solution. In case I didn't provide enough system information please reply here and I will disclose it if it's okay to share that.

    :)

    Hi,

    After many users reporting the same issue after AMD Windows 10 Nov 2017 update where rolling back driver was not working we found the steps to resolve this for all of them at AMD mobility Radeon HD4500 not working after windows 10 update Solved - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

    Extracted steps from this article and post by psylocyble/jcorallo:

    • Device Manager
    • Display Adapters and right click on your installed adapter
    • Choose Update Driver
    • "Browse my computer for driver software"
    • Click "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer"
    • In the list choose an older driver and click Next

    In our case it was the 2015 driver which resolved the issue for most users.

    Microsoft or ATI/AMD have made an major mistake in releasing these updates as we have received many calls in the last 3 working days from clients, for some reason is using Microsoft generic drivers instead after the update.

    Hope this helps you and others.

    AMD ATI Radeon HD 3450

    On Thanksgiving day my Dell XPS 420 that is on 24/7 has an enlarged background display with icons rearranged and distorted. I check display and personalized settings and they are in order. I check system and see that my ati radeon hd 3450 card is showing
    a install on 11/22/2017 the day before when my computer although built in 2009 was functioning with no problems at all. I looked into rolling back but was met with a notice that it was not possible. I see the original install and driver entries, is there
    any way to get back to them.

    Is there any solutions to my corrupted enlarged display?

    Driver Error AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5000

    ok, it didn't work after all. windows update has seemingly installed another
    driver update for my amd mobility radeon hd 5000, this time breaking it again.

    i tried what you suggested step by step, but that didn't work either. I'll try it again with running a win 7 driver in compatibility between steps two and three and keep you posted on the results.
