Users of AMD Radeon HD2000 and HD4000 Radeon series GPU’s might experience various issues after installing Windows 10 v1809 update. It’s worth saying that mentioned cards are not supported by AMD company anymore.

One of the possible compatibility issues when using AMD Radeon HD2000 or HD4000 series GPU’s is related to Microsft Edge tabs getting frozen which results in browser getting unresponsive.

Furthermore, another problem that might appear on some devices is presented with the following error message:
“INVALID_POINTER_READ_c0000005_atidxx64.dll,”

The problem might also appear with performance issues on the lock screen.

Because of these issues, Microsoft had to completely block Windows 10 v1809 update for users with HD2000 and HD4000 Radeon series GPU’s. And although this problem is related to unsupported AMD graphics cards, Microsoft says that it’s still investigating the problem and is trying to find a solution.

Devices that aren’t offered the latest update v1809 through Windows Update can still download and install the latest version using Media Creation Tool, although Microsoft doesn’t recommend this approach.
