Any AMD GPU driver is making my pc freeze on a Black Screen

So a few months ago when the new Catalyst Center was released the driver made my pc crash, so i removed the driver and couldn't install any new driver.

So now i'm having a GPU that runs, gets recognized halfway by windows (as AMD ATOMBIOS, with the classic windows driver) but no longer once i install the driver.

Also when i'm installing the driver i have a black screen during the installation or during the restart once the installation "finishes".

I've tried many drivers, tried changing the slot on the motherboard but nothing is working, what else is left ?

im having the exact same issue with the most recent drivers. shame on you AMD. the last somewhat stable drivers are still the 16.2 this whole year of drivers have been a fail after fail. this is getting old, FAST.

So far from what i've seen AMD support staff only answers to ask about the specs of the PC but never tries to find a solution, and there's no way to directly ask the support. welp.
