I was playing Starcraft2 when suddenly my screen froze.
After rebooting a black screen occured right after the Windows 7 logo (was not on desktop yet).
I tried to reboot several times, but it did not worked out. I unplugged (and plugged in again) all cable + graphic card twice: no help.
MB driver and processor were up to date.

The only thing that worked: I went to windows in safe mode and uninstalled the graphic driver. After rebooting I was able to use my PC normally and update to your latest driver.
But right after the next reboot the black screen occured again.


I got all Windows7 Updates, latest Virtual C++ and netframeworks (3+4).

I went through that guide step by step but still no help. AMD driver installed but after reboot blackscreen again.


Hope you can help me.
