    some UI broken after updating graphics driver


    Hi, i have this problem for a while now and what i do is just uninstall the latest driver. but now, i need to have to latest drivers to play a certain game smoothly. i tried installing the omega version of my driver then i always have BSOD atikmpag.sys when i boot my laptop so i tried the beta drivers now when i log off i only see the loading circle and the shutting down text is missing. similar to when i start the lockscreen background, clock and the notifs are missing it only shows the theme color i chose and the buttons you see at the bottom right part when entering your password.

    Make/model of laptop would help. Some laptops can not use generic drivers from the graphics manufacturer, they must use the drivers from from the laptop manufacturer.
