Blender 2.80 crashes my video card driver on startup.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


System Information
Operating system: Windows 7 pro 64 bit SP1
Graphics card: ATI/AMD Radeon HD 4800 Series -- latest driver from ATI/AMD:

Blender Version
Broken: 2.80 (Latest release from your home page as of 2019-07-30 2224 EST -- can't see splash screen so that's all I know)

Short description of error
On startup, Blender DOS command line window appears, then main window (workspace?) appears, but black, with a title bar. Cursor freezes. After a minute or two, it flashes white, then video driver reports that it crashed and then recovered (didn't actually -- second monitor no longer displays).

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Attempt to start Blender from Windows start menu.

Thanks for your attention!

You can check for youself here if your hardware and software meet minimum Blender requirement

IMO your GPU not meet minimum Blender requirement, your PC have a Terascale 1st gen Gpu family, minumum is GCN 1st gen an newer Gpu family.

Before you made a new bug report you must use Search box (upper right on Bug Report page) to check if bug/problem is already reported from others users. Duplicating bugreport is a waste of time and resources for developers
