Hi guys,


I hope you guys can help me, I've tried a lot of things already and i've already exhausted all of my options.This problem first happened already back in March 2016 where i had a BSOD error and i will get a blue screen. I went into safe mode uninstalled amd display drivers, uninstalled amd through control panel then reinstalled latest AMD drivers and boom BSOD error fixed.


A few days ago a new update came in through windows update, once i've restarted my once again i have a BSOD error. I tried to do the latter fix as to uninstall all remnants of previous update, and install new update but there was no luck. As soon as i install the new driver i get a black screen. I've searched around and i've tried using DDU this time for clean install then i tried a different approach of using a stable driver as recommended 15.7.1 crimson edition, but i still get black screen. I also tried resetting my Windows 10, using sfc/scannow through command line still no luck.


I can only boot my PC properly if i uninstalled amd drivers through safe mode, otherwise i'll get a black screen or vertical streaks of lines. One other thing i also have two blue vertical lines on my pc at recommended resolution 1024 x 768 if i put the resolution to 1360 x 768 i get a double the number of vertical streaks on my screen. I dont think my screen is broken as i have also tested my vga screen and the same vertical blue streak lines appear. I hope someone can give me an advice i haven't touched my PC and still scouring the net for some solutions.
