Black Screen on startup?

So this recently started happening when I updated my driver that I apparently needed to upgrade since the AMD gaming evolved app told me to. I did this, and ever since I have ran into problems.

When I start my PC it will just be a black screen, or sometimes go into power save. If Windows so does happen to start one of three things will happen: 1; It will black screen and recover and say "AMD driver has crashed but has been successfully recovered". 2; There will be color distortion, (static grey lines) then crash, or 3; just simply crash. It seems like a lot others have been having the same problem with unanswered questions.
