1] Check and change internet connection
If the downloading is stuck on a window, you need to check if you have any internet connection issues or not. In most cases, losing the internet connection midway causes this problem on users’ computers.

Therefore, follow these steps to check if you have a ping loss issue or not:
- Press Win+R to open the Run prompt on your computer.
- Type 184.108.40.206 -t and hit the Enter button.
- If it displays a continued result with ping time, it is fine.
However, if it is showing Request timed out or a similar error, you need to change the internet source immediately in order to troubleshoot this issue. You can use an alternate source such as a mobile hotspot, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, etc. However, you may need to restart the AMD app to get the job done.
2] Disable VPN and proxy
If the VPN server or the proxy server has some internet issues, it reflects while downloading almost anything on your computer. Therefore, if you are using a VPN or proxy to be anonymous while browsing the web, it is the correct time to get rid of them temporarily. Now check if it solves your problem or not. If yes, you need to take a break from those apps.
3] Disable firewall
No matter which firewall software you use, you must know that all the firewall apps scan all the incoming and outgoing traffic. However, if your firewall software is configured incorrectly, it may block your essential programs from using internet.
If the same thing happens with the AMD software, you will find the aforementioned problem while downloading the update. That is why it is suggested to disable the firewall software temporarily to check if it is the root of your problem or not.
4] Reinstall driver from USB/DVD/CD or website
If none of the aforementioned solutions has worked for you, you may need to uninstall the app and reinstall it on your computer. At times, a very old version of the driver management interface can cause such issues. If the same thing is happening to you, you can bypass the problem by uninstalling the existing version and reinstalling the latest version.
If you want to opt for the same old version, you can insert the motherboard media given to you by the manufacturer and continue with the installation process. However, if you want to install the latest version, you can head to the official website and download the installer.
