It's obvious from your post you have two different driver versions loaded. Remove one or the other to get just one.

The standard solution for removing all vestiges of ALL video drivers is to use Wagnard DDU (Display Driver Uninstall) from Safe Mode.

Then reinstall the correct drivers for your cards. I know nothing about AMD cards other than they are an extremely difficult installation with the various drivers supporting different product families and not any others.

I have a teammate always constantly fighting the drivers. He has to remove the internet connection from the machine to keep Windows and AMD from auto updating things and breaking things all the time.

Looks like you stumbled into that tar pit yourself.

Nvidia has always had better drivers than AMD. The number one complaint about AMD products are their drivers.
