Lenovo Z-51 with Radeon Graphics, won't run any games.

2016-01-11, 14:05 PM

I bought the below laptop only 2 months ago:

 

http://www.very.co.uk/lenovo-z51-intelreg-coretrade-i5-processor-8gb-ram-1tb-hdd-storage-156-inch-full-hd-laptop-2gb-dedicated-graphics-with-optional-microsoft-office-365-personal-white/1461271320.prd?_requestid=110902

 

Its a Z51-70 i5 8gb Ram and AMD Radeon R7 M360 / Intel HD Graphics 5500

 

Every game I put on it will download and either not load or crash shortly after. None of these games are paticulary heavy and should run, eg minecraft, elite dangerous, arma 2, league of legends, SWTOR

 

 

All of these games I have previousley played on my I3 with just the Intel 3000 on low and sometimes medium but they ran.

 

It came with windows 10, and I believe I have the latest AMD drives and control centre.

 

I'm considering putting it back to windows 8 maybe or uninstalling the drivers?

thanks,

 

I'm not sure what version I got unless that was released in the last few days. I will check tonight.

These are the new Crimson Edition Graphics, released 17 December. Black Ops 3 jumped to around 40 fps at 1080p for me after this update!
PS: Mine is the R9 M375, but uses the same drivers.
