Like the title says, I have trouble launching my most beloved games since I upgraded to Windows 10 on Thursday. I uninstalled the Win 7 version of the GPU driver and installed the newest version for my card (Radeon RX 480) under Windows 10. But judging by the error messages, something related to DirectX and the driver went wrong.
Some Games that won’t work:
Battlefield 1, with the following Textbox:
DirectX function “device-> CreateTexture2D( &texDesc,
desc.subResourceCount != 0 ? reinterpret_cast<const
D3D11_SUBRESOURCE_DATA*>(desc.subResourceData) : 0,
&texture->m_texture2d)” failed with E_INVALIDARG (“An
invalid parameter was passed to the returning function.”).
GPU: “Radeon™ RX 480 Graphics”, Driver: 20.2.2 (22.214.171.124-200228a-352369C-RadeonSoftwareAdrenalin2020)
Company of Heroes 2, with the following Textbox:
Failed to find supported hardware rendering device. Verify that DirectX is properly installed and that you have the latest drivers for your system
Far Cry Primal (launches minimized and doesn’t react to clicks or anything, only option is killing it via Task Manager)
Games that DID in fact work:
Anno 1800, tried it out for the weekend and played without any issues for 7 hours straight.
Fallout 76, decided to give it a try again. It was ugly AF, but I don’t think that has anything to do with my system lol.
Before, all games worked flawlessly in 1920x1080 Fullscreen.
It seems to have nothing to do with where I launch these games from, since they’re all from different launchers (Steam, Origin and UPlay) and I tried launching them from the launcher, the desktop symbol and directly the .exe in the respective folders.
I already tried deleting configs for BF1 and CoH2, uninstalling and reinstalling the Radeon drivers a couple of times and I’m at my wit’s end right now.
I’d be so grateful if anyone has any suggestions for me on how to fix my DirectX/driver problems.
Thanks in advance for reading this and for your help!
