    Go to Device Manager/Display Adapters click Uninstall for both, then restart. If the latest drivers aren't installed then redownload them from AMD (Your last download may have been corrupt) and try updating again
    There is also an AMD article for exactly your situation https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/gpu-kb186 but carry out the steps above first
