Random black screen freeze for XFX R7850 graphics card

After working fine for ages, a couple days ago on Windows 7 I got the BSOD error message when playing a game, and after the windows logo my PC would have lines across the screen, and when I tried to log in the whole screen would just turn blue. I tried uninstalling thedrivers and finding updated ones though nothing seemed to work - although I have no idea if I've got the right drivers or not, couldn't seem to find ones for the XFX R7850. I updated to Windows 10 and now I seem to be able to log in when connected to the GPU but when I tried to load a game it was really slow and the screen just turned black after a minute, and after logging on again the screen seems to just turn black and crash at random points.

 

Anyone else had a similar problem and know if it can be fixed? Or am I going to have to get a new GPU?
