Can't update/install any v15 driver

Hello all


I can't seem to update ANY v15 driver to the newer version as it causes a black screen. I have to resort to using DDU and even then sometimes it doesn't work.

I have tried the following;


-From any v15.x driver a simple driver update

-Uninstalled the previous driver with DDU and tried to update

-Through windows programs and features uninstalled previous version then tried to update to the latest


I'm running windows 10 Pro 64bit with a Asus 7990 on a Crosshair V Formula Z motherboard


I noticed the line from the 15.8 drivers change log that explains my issues PERFECTLY "Windows 10 driver installation may halt on some systems with an AMD 990FX chipset and AMD CrossFire™ enabled"


The problem is there is NO mention after 15.9 on whether it was fixed or if its still considered a problem?


Why is this such an issue to install drivers? I'm still in shock to why this is still an issue for so long as I have noticed many other users with similar issues with black screens.
