I'm Unable to update drivers without getting a blue screen (Not BSOD blue screen) Radeon HD 7800 Win 7 - 64

Question asked by maksimus on Jun 27, 2016



System crashed and came up with a black screen, I was unable to reboot without getting a black screen. I ran recovery on the system and rolled back to a previous version with no luck still a black screen.  I uninstalled old AMD Radeon Drivers using the amdcleanuputility, I used this due to being unable to uninstall through programs and features in the control panel. I also used DDU. I downloaded through auto detect radeon-crimson-16.3.2-minimalsetup_web and after rebooting the screen came up blue with lines (not BSOD) the system then rebooted, same problem kept coming back.


I then downloaded three drivers and tried each one individually;


radeon-crimson-16.3.2-minimalsetup_web - failed with errors.

radeon-crimson-16.3.2-with-dotnet45-win7-64bit - was able to install however it will boot up and run into blue screen (Not BSOD)

non-whql-64bit-radeon-software-crimson-16.6.1-win10-win8.1-win7-june2 - was able to install however it will boot up and run into blue screen (not BSOD)


The only way the system would run after the recovery was using VGA.



AMD Radeon HD 7850


Windows 7 - 64 bit



(not sure on previous version as the system would only run in VGA)
