Obstinate drivers MSI RADEON 7870 HD Black Artifacts.

Question asked by jaguar on Sep 12, 2015

Hey, i have reealy bad problem with my graphic card.

i wanted update my drivers from 14.7 RC to 15.7.1, but after instalationand restart pc, on my deskopt appears black afticats, it really frustrating problem.

i read lots of guids and i used all common tips, but drivers still doesn't work.


What i did do?


The uninstallation process:

1. I uninstaled drvers in Programs (Windows Control Panel)

2.In safe mode with help Display Driver Uninstaler i delete  the entire contents associated with AMD/ATI.

3. I removed all folders ATI/AMD from the hard disk.

4. To be  sure , in Driver Cleaner Pro i delete  the entire contents associated with AMD/ATI.

5. In the Regedit Registry i removed the entire contents associated with AMD/ATI. (according to this guide: How To: Remove Your AMD / ATi GPU Drivers )

6. I cleaned disk in Ccleaner.

7.I emptied bin and restarted PC.


The instalation process:

1. I run the installer, all work good.

2. Instalation complete, restart.

3. Bum! On deskopt appers  artifacts!


I tried with other drivers, but still this same.


At some point i decided to restore system.

I did it, i restore the  drivers before all the "fun", but windows restore me really  old drivers -8.0 version (something like that)  But before i had 14.7 RC3 version. It;s so strange.

Most importantly, they work. (at 8.0v) Any artifacts or something ****
