my system:

i7 6770k @4.0ghz

16GB DDR4

MSI Radeon R9 390

MSI Gaming Mobo

Windows 10 64-bit

Samsung 250gb SSD

 

what i did:

was running 16.5.2.1 with no problems whatsoever until I installed 16.5.3 and launched Doom.  The game crashed to blank black screen and I had to do a hard shut down.  when I got back to my desktop, I had some strange flickering and distortion on my screen then I got messages about the Radeon settings not working and the Qt5Core.dll file is missing.

 

I then uninstalled the drivers and also tried using the AMD uninstall tool and put 16.5.2.1 back on but the problem still is there

 

I then went back to 15.x.x (whatever was on the CD that came with my card) and it worked, but obviously it runs Doom like crap along with an annoying stutter with everything else.  As soon as I go back up to the newest Crimson drivers, I get the distortion, flickering and black screens.

 

Please help!

 

thanks
