Display Driver messing with civilization 5 (black screen)

Got home and AMD prompts me to update (first time this has happned), I click yes becase I am having trouble with "amd driver not responding and has recovered" (on other games, not the issue at hand). It pushed the update and my 1920x1080 monitor gets about 2 cm of black space around the edge. I am really confused (settings still = 1920x1080) so I get it updated again. Screen is Fixed. I launch Civ 5 and after intro, the menu is black. Luckily, this is a common problem for many reasons and I make it start on windowed mode through editing the files. For most issues, however, this seems to fix the problem. Whenever I change settings to fullscreen, the game becomes black again. Possible but extremely unlikely this is not to do with display driver and just co-incidence. Have tried rolling back my display driver, the black edges issue arises again, no futher roll backs.
