I meant try right clicking the "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter"

That's probably a good bet, as that sounds sufficiently generic. As in that is the GPU, but Microsoft doesn't recognize exactly what it is, and gives it a generic moniker. Especially if there is something else that is essentially the CPU's integrated graphics chipset. I mean, what else could it be?

Also you should be able to manually search for updates and a stand alone manual installer from AMD, provided you know the exact model of GPU you have. I've only ever used nVidia since 2008, but even with their integrated Geforce Experience program, I've had to manually download and install updates (like rolling back to a previous driver) from nVidia's website from time to time.

That led to nothing; "MBDA" is a system32 thing, so it's not my GPU in disguise...

Hmmmmm, AMD has a clean uninstall thing which may help the installer work better or you can try what EK suggested.

RE: Ranting corner
Clicking on the generic thing and trying to update just says it is up to date

Did you do search online? I meant download the driver files and instead of search online, click browse for files and point it to the AMD driver files.

RE: Ranting corner
Amd doesn't seem to want to let me just download the files, it forces me to download an installer

Do you have a folder in "C:/AMD/Support"?

RE: Ranting corner
What card do you have?

On the US site at least, there is a 'select your card and OS' option that is bellow the 'autodetect' option. I might be able to search for a direct link for your GPU drivers, and paste that so you can download it directly.
