Hello, these day I was trying to fix a rx480 but i have a problem, when I put the Adredalin for put the drivers, my sistems fail and i have a thread stuck in device driver problem. I tried again, but cleaning the drivers with DDU and flashing a new bios version, but I have the same problem. My theory is I have a hardware problem. Can anyone help me sending a post that have the issues? Thanks.

Ok. Try to do the following in this order :
- restart in safe mode
- use DDU to uninstall drivers
- flash the BIOS that came with the video card (original one)
- install drivers
- use atikmdag patch for pixel
- restart computer and run a test to check for errors

One question, If I cannot enter win with the GPU , because I'm in a loop with the same error (THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER), is it ok if a use another GPU? For example, a IGPU?

Edit: I forgot to mention, I don't have video in the rx480 so i'm using a ryzen 3400g.

ok - can you take off the video card ? i mean rx480?
Try to boot with a discrete video card (onboard and uninstall drivers)
In case you do not have onboard video try to use another video card (no matter how old it is) in order to uninstall drivers from system
unplug from internet (in order to avoid system to update video drivers from web)
Then put back rx480 into system and continue with flashing the original BIOS ....
keep us informed

Now I'm with the phone. I do the process and windows cannot start if I put the video with the Ryzen 3400g, the fans of rx480 stop. Also, I tried to use the rx480 but the PC stuck in VGA check.

OK so let me understand.
You took out the rx480, you uninstalled the drivers?
Then you take off internet?
Then you put back rx480 ?
And when you start computer you did set up as the main video card the card onboard ?

Yes, and I did this :

- install drivers
- use atikmdag patch for pixel

Pfffff
I am very sorry mate.
So let's roll back a little.
All were good few days ago?
Then you changed the video driver only ?
Or you also flashed the BIOS at the next step ?
I suspect that you cause some hardware level damage due to the newly flashed BIOS, possibly cause they used more aggressive the memory that can cause memory chips failure.
