    Hello..

    Recently I dropped my mouse onto my laptop and within a second my computer says it has detected a problem and requires a restart; I didn't think any of this since sometimes my computer runs into this kind of problem and usually it restarts and its fine again. However this time after starting up I get a pop up message from AMD saying that "No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly. Please install the AMD driver appropriate."

    So I went on AMD and downloaded the software that detects your driver and to my surprise it says that it cannot find it or it does not support my operating system. When I go on run and dxdiag it does not show my graphics card either.

    What can I do to fix it?

    Operating System Windows 8

    Have you tried a system restore to a date before the problem? If not, that would be the first thing I would try.

    Right-click the bottom-left corner of any screen and choose System from the pop-up menu. When the System window appears, click System Protection from the left pane. Finally, when the System Properties window appears, click System Restore.

    The System Restore window appears.

    Click the Next button at the System Restore window.

    The System Restore Point lists available restore points.

    Click a listed restore point. Use one prior to the problem.

    You can see more available restore points by selecting the Show More Restore Points check box.

    Click the Scan for Affected Programs button to see how your chosen restore point will affect programs.

    A handy touch, this lists programs you’ll probably need to reinstall.

    Click Next to confirm your chosen restore point. Then click Finish.
