Reinstalling AMD GPU drivers

I think i may have caused issues by assuming i needed to install gpu drivers despite them already being installed.

is there a way i can reinstall them without reinstalling the entire os?

You can uninstall the AMD GPU drivers. How to uninstall depends on which drivers you installed.
If you installed the AMDGPU package, you should be able to run

./amdgpu-pro-install --uninstall

From a terminal cd'd into the directory you installed the drivers from.

If you installed the Oibaf drivers by adding the repository and upgrading:

sudo ppa-purge ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers

To reinstall the Default Drivers:

sudo apt install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-radeon xserver-xorg-core

sudo update-initramfs -u -k all

Do you think this is a problem?
Also, does this look right to you? i cant remember what it was like by default.

Please see:
