AMD Radeon Settings is the main driver interface or central hub where you can customize your AMD graphics settings. Despite its importance as a piece of software, it occasionally fails to launch. You won’t be able to optimize games, change your display settings, or check for the newest graphics upgrades if this happens.
There are numerous reasons why AMD Radeon settings won’t open, including a defective driver or an outdated software version. Whatever the case may be, we’ll go over a few options for getting your AMD Settings setup tool back up and running.
HOW DO I GET THE AMD RADEON SETTINGS TO OPEN?
The Settings program is automatically loaded when you install an AMD Radeon Graphics driver to assist you in configuring your display settings. Although the program is not required, it greatly simplifies the process of improving your games.
If your AMD Settings window isn’t opening, there are a few things you may do to get it to work again. Take a look at them below.
SOLUTION 1: DOWNLOAD AMD’S MOST RECENT GRAPHICS DRIVER.
Windows Device Manager is without a doubt the most convenient way to obtain a graphics driver. However, in rare situations, Windows is unable to locate the most recent display driver version.
As a result, you may occasionally download an old version of your graphics driver, preventing AMD’s settings from opening. We suggest that you go to AMD’s driver download page and get your drivers there. The steps to do so are as follows:
- First and foremost, you’ll need to know your graphics card’s model. Open Device Manager from the Windows start menu and expand the “Display Adapter” arrow if you’re not sure which graphics card you have. Your graphics driver will be shown there.
- Go to the AMD driver download page for further information. You may either search for your product or choose from a list if you scroll down. Enter the model of your graphics card and click Submit.
- After that, choose the operating system you’re running. To guarantee reliable performance, AMD advises that you use the most recent version of Windows or Linux.
- You may now get the most recent Radeon Software by downloading it. A recommended and optional version is generally offered. If you’re using the recommended version, we recommend upgrading to the newest optional release. If you’re not sure which one to pick, just go with “Auto-Detect and Install.”
- Launch the installer when it has finished downloading and follow the on-screen setup instructions. To implement the modifications, restart your computer after installing the graphics driver.
SOLUTION 2: REMOVE INTEL GRAPHICS FROM YOUR COMPUTER.
Many of you may be curious as to how removing Intel Graphics would affect your AMD Settings. Intel graphics and AMD Settings are incompatible due to a known flaw. This is the most well-known solution for resolving the problem. You can move forward to the instructions below if you’re utilizing an integrated graphics card.
If you have a discrete graphics card, you’ll need to activate Intel Graphics in your BIOS for this to function. To access the BIOS, restart your computer and press F2, F8, or F12 repeatedly. The IGD Multi-Monitor, iGPU Multi-Monitor, Intel Integrated GPU, or Intel Processor Graphics options are generally located under Advanced BIOS settings named IGD Multi-Monitor, iGPU Multi-Monitor, Intel Integrated GPU, or Intel Processor Graphics (the name may vary based on your computer manufacturer). Save and restart your computer after changing the status to Enabled.
Let’s get started now that it’s out of the way! Before you begin, double-check that you have your AMD Drivers installed. If you need assistance with this, go back to Method 1.
- Device Manager may be found in the Windows Start menu if you search for it.
- Select “Show hidden devices” from the menu under “View.”
- After that, open the arrow next to “Display Adapters,” and your Intel Display Driver should appear.
- Uninstall the Intel-Graphics driver by right-clicking it and selecting “Uninstall.”
- Restart your computer after closing Device Manager.
If AMD Radeon settings still won’t open, try the following solution.
SOLUTION 3: CHECK FOR UPDATES TO WINDOWS.
Another important thing to do is to determine if there are any big Windows Updates that need to be installed. Windows often release updates and patches to improve the compatibility of graphics settings applications like AMD Radeon Settings and NVIDIA Control Panel with Windows. If you don’t install these updates, you’ll notice some speed difficulties and, in some situations, your AMD Settings won’t even open. Fortunately for us, Windows has made checking for updates a breeze. Simply follow the instructions outlined below:
- Look for Settings on your start menu. After that, go to Update & Security and then to the Windows Update tab.
- Now, go ahead and click the “Check for Updates” option. If there are any waiting updates, Windows will begin downloading them automatically.
- Windows will most likely prompt you to restart your computer after downloading the updates. So go ahead and do that so you can complete the update installation. It’s worth noting that this may take some time and multiple restarts to accomplish.
- Check to see whether you can access the AMD Radion settings after applying the upgrades.
