Ryzen 2200g - terrible APU drivers?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there,

I’ve recently builded PC:

cpu: amd ryzen 2200g

ram: crucial 2x8gb ddr4 2133mhz

mobo: gigabyte GA-A320m-S2H

hdd: some old 160hdd until I get 1TB NVMe

psu: fortron ATX-250PA

Everything is connected to 22’ TV via HDMI and I don’t have access to anything with DSUB

So I’m facing some really weird problems with my windows 10 pro (1809 updated) - Radeon Wattman crashes, or some drivers? Basically, when I restart my computer it’s lottery if everything gonna work just fine (I’ve stressed everything over 30mins and it’s rock stable) or I’m gonna have “no signal issue” also - I’ve changed uefi boot to legacy, because I can’t access my BIOS - it’ll boot directly to windows loading. To access my bios I have to unplug my HDD and then restart few times computer. I’ve also tried 4 different graphics drivers two newest both stable and optional plus some early-mid 2018. I’ve tried to install chipset drivers from gigabyte choosing clean install and now I just got no signal - probably after restart everything will work again. Bios updated to F24. Really no idea what can be cause of that - chipset heats up to 45 Celsius which I find a bit too hot? I don’t have 8PIN EPS connector in my PSU so I’ve connected 4pin only, that “tricked” worked for me many times and seem to work in here as well.

thanks for help.

That RAM is way to slow for the APU to get enough data.

It should work anyway.

Terrible bottlenecking, A320 chipset boards should never be bought you not only use overclocking which is a must for Ryzen you also get a a board that won't fit any Ryzen 7 being realistically as it doesn't carry enough power phases and VRM to sustain it.

 

2133mhz memory for Ryzen is also the largest bottleneck you could possible grant it, specially for APU which is even more depended on faster ram and faster infinity fabric.

 

So performance is going to be awful regardless what you do, also A320 and 2200G you should not bother with NVMe storage, The 2200G only has 8x PCI-e lanes, get a normal Sata3 drive, it can still be M.2 if you want, just save yourself some money.

 

I'd say your current storage could be the reason why things aren't functioning well but you an always DDU in safe mode and try reinstalling the APU drivers.

I do agree with everything you say, I’m planning to upgrade to smth like ryzen 3300 and gtx1070 or new Vega.

regardless, I’ve just downloaded a320 chipset drivers because one from gigabyte had drivers as well that caused problems - uninstalled graphics drivers and now bios seems to show up every time I boot pc. I’m gonna try to install 19.1.1 drivers now.

side note - this ram can run 2667mhz, and I hoped I could OC ram using this board but it seems I can’t :/

Hi there,

tl;dr

1

Install the latest drivers directly from AMD.

MBO: https://www.amd.com/en/support/chipsets/amd-socket-am4/a320

iGPU: https://www.amd.com/en/support/apu/amd-ryzen-processors/amd-ryzen-3-desktop-processors-radeon-vega-graphics/amd-ryzen-3-0

Flash the latest bios to the motherboard.

Turn back UEFI boot (might need to enter Safe mode upon first restart after making the change for it to work) and turn off Fast boot.

I’ve done everything except turning back uefi boot, it works just fine right now.

I've just figured windows is running in compatibility mode when everything works.

picture

Normal boot ends with 640x480 and no bios posting. After few shutdowns I can actually enter the BIOS - when I do then windows compatibility mode comes on and everything works just fine. Any suggestions what to do?
