“Your graphics hardware does not support all features (CSM) needed to run this game”
Well so was I, after recently installing the new AMD Ryzen 5 2400G Processor with Radeon Vega Graphics and everything was running apparently smoothly. After everything was installed and running fine, I loaded up my Steam account, downloaded all the top games and fired up CS: GO for the evening. However, I didn’t get very far
The aforementioned error message appeared on my screen:
My immediate reaction (apart from disappointment) was to head straight to Google (as surely I’m not the first ever person to get this issue), and I was correct.
All of the top hits all said error solved, so I was optimistic about a quick fix and having enough time to fire up CS:GO still.

Radeon Driver graphics are still needed, even with the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G Processor, so head here and there will be two different drivers to install, the AMD Ryzen Master and Radeon software drivers:
If you download them, they’re approx 64MB and 348MB in that respective order. Install them and let them do their thing. Do a quick restart just to be sure and then fire Steam back up and give that a try, you should be good to go. I was.
