Windows 7 clean install gets black screen after AMD driver installation

I've seen similar problems here, but none of them seem to have reliable answers.

A few hours ago I had vertical lines on my screen while playing, then it froze. I did a reboot, and saw the "Starting Windows" screen, then a black screen that did not go away.

Tried a few solutions, nothing worked, finally reinstalled windows.

Windows works fine, I install the chipset, then after a reboot the AMD crimson 15.12 drivers. Reboot again, same black screen as before.

This time I can restore a previous point via Windows, so I try again, same issue.

Restore again, try Catalyst 15.11 instead -> 1 minute of "Starting Windows" screen (previously 10s), then black screen, while the PC goes in overdrive.

Restore again, so currently I am without graphics drivers.


My system:

  • Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
  • SP1 installed, .Net installed
  • i7 6700k, not overclocked
  • 32GB RAM
  • Asus R9 270x card


Does anyone have ideas how to solve this?
