Ive been playing RDR2 for a couple weeks and I didn't have any issues with my PC's ability to run RDR2. I have no idea why my drivers suddenly disappeared. Even my restore point from 3 days ago isn't saved anymore. The installer crashes during the "Detecting System Configuration" step. The light for the GPU is on so there is still power? Not sure if its dead TBH. PC still working, just using integrated graphics.
My guesses are:
  1. RDR2 killed my aging GPU (4 years old-ish) which is why installer is failing when it sees my GPU (I just don't know why the light is still turned on)
  2. AMD servers are down which is why installers aren't working? Seems unlikely though.
