Windows 10 Pro AMD R9 270 Black Screen

I've been trying to get Windows 10 Pro to work on and off since it was released. From a fresh install, it looks fine. However as soon as I install AMD drivers (tried 15.7 and 15.7.1 both) the screen flickers a few times and then goes blank.


Eventually, I do a hard reset and Windows boots to the point where it would normally start showing something other than the windows icon. The black screen comes back and that's it. I've let it sit for a half hour in this state with no change.


If I go to safe mode the machine will boot just fine. I've done many fresh installs with no change. Also, when I plug the network cable in after a fresh install and automatic updates start, I think MS downloads an AMD driver that causes this issue as well. So either way, whether I install the driver or MS does, I have the issue.


My video card is a Gigabyte GV-R927OC-2GD to be more specific. I'm also running a three headed setup (2 monitors on DVI, one on HDMI).


Has anyone else out there had similar issues? Any ideas? Thanks!
