Manually updating the graphic drivers of the ASUS ROG Ally will not be possible without installing the AMD Adrenalin Software on the console. While it has an application on AMD and Radeon-powered PC hardware, it is also compatible with the handheld ASUS ROG Ally console.

Receiving error “182” during the AMD Adrenalin Software installation is expected and should happen, as the ROG Ally contains AMD graphics hardware configuration that isn’t supported. Nonetheless, the necessary AMD graphic files have already been extracted and installed by the time of the error’s occurrence.

2. Apply the “780M” AMD Graphics Driver

After downloading and installing the AMD Adrenalin software, it will be inaccessible through the ASUS ROG Ally until the latest driver version is applied manually.

  • Access the “Device Manager” on your ASUS ROG Ally.
  • Extend the “Display Adapters” section within the menu.
  • Next, right-click on the “AMD Radeon Graphics” tile.
  • Click on “Update Driver” from the drop-down menu.
  • After that, select “Browse my computer for drivers.”
  • Click “Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer.”
  • Press “Have Disk…” on the right to locate the files extracted earlier.

  • Next, click “Next” and confirm the “Update Driver Warning” prompt.
To load up the driver, double-click the “.inf” file under the “WT6A_INF” section. The number of files will vary as they represent the version of the driver.

Note: The ASUS ROG Ally may fail to turn on if an incorrect driver is uploaded!

3. Upload the Latest AMD Panel Version

Attempting to launch the AMD Control Panel will result in an error, as only the driver has been updated so far. So, the next step is to upload the latest version available for the AMD panel through the files that have been extracted earlier, during Adrenalin’s installation.


Here’s how to manually remove the old panel and install the most current version:


  • Access the Windows start menu and type “Add or remove programs.”
  • Next, locate the “AMD Software” within the list of installed applications.
  • Select the three dots next to the application to access the app settings.

  • Run the “CCC2_Install.exe” file after scrolling down in the folder for a bit.
  • Follow the instructions to apply the latest driver version for the ROG Ally.

4. Update the ASUS ROG Ally’s Windows OS

The ASUS ROG Ally runs a fully integrated and functional Windows 11 version, allowing the console to perform as well as a desktop computer. However, most services and applications such as the AMD Adrenalin Software require the latest notebook Windows 11 version to run properly.

Here’s how to check if the ASUS ROG Ally is updated to the latest version:


  1. Access the Windows start menu and type “Check for Updates.”
  2. Press enter and wait until the Windows version panel loads up.
  3. Click on the “Check for Updates” button on the top-right corner.
  4. If Windows has detected an update, it will begin automatically.

Note: Ensure the ASUS ROG Ally is able to charge after updating the Windows OS!

5. Check for Newer Graphic Driver Updates

Finally, it’s time to check whether AMD Software has prepared a newer driver version for the ASUS ROG Ally. Although we have already updated the handheld console manually, you should still check whether there’s a newer update for the graphic drivers allowed by AMD.
