    Is anyone else getting colored bars on boot after updating your drivers?

      Here's the scenario.
      Was playing a round of Steel Armor Blaze of War (not really a beast when it comes to graphics) when all of a sudden my computer hard locked, buzzed, and I was forced to shut if off manually.

       

      Upon rebooting, there were several colored bars stretching horizontally across my screen (almost like a broken LCD screen) - then another crash.

       

      I booted up in safe mode (bars were gone) , and uninstalled my drivers using the AMD Cleanup utility.
      Rebooted, no bars, all is well.
      Used the auto detect and install to reinstall the latest drivers for my card (Radeon HD 7800), and upon completion and reboot, the bars and crashes were back.

       

      Any ideas?
