I am facing some problems updating the driver for my Club 3D Radeon HD 7750. The driver versions I have tried so far are 15.7.1, 14.12 and 13.12. DDU is used to uninstall the drivers each time I try an older version.
When installing the drivers from a wizard, I uncheck everything except the display drivers. The monitor goes blank during the installation and never recovers (I'm pretty sure the computer has crashed at this point).
When the drivers are installed automatically via Windows Update, the monitor also goes blank after the installation is complete. When the computer is restarted, everything is normal up till the log in screen (Windows is able to boot up till the blank log in screen).
I have to boot into safe mode to uninstall the AMD drivers and revert to Microsoft Basic Display Adapter before I can see anything on the monitor.
What may be the problem?
Operating System: Windows 10 Education 64-bit
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955
RAM: 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 669MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. GA-MA770T-UD3P (Socket M2)
Graphics: DELL ST2320L (1920x1080@64Hz), Club 3D Radeon HD 7750
I tried the above steps with a clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro, and the same problem persists. Could the gpu be faulty even though all is fine when Microsoft Basic Display Adapter is used?
