My system:

MB: Asrock M3770DE

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition


RAM: 4 GB Kingston DDR3 1333

PSU: be quiet BQT E6 550W

SSD: SanDisk SDSA4AH 128 GB


I was running the crimson 16.6.1 driver (Win 10 Pro 64 bit) and was playing GTA V. My system stopped running while playing and after restarting i got a black screen after the windows logo.

I deinstalled the driver with DDU in safe mode and tried to install older drivers. I always got a black sreen while driver installation.

Roll back to Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. In Win 7 i can install the driver without black screen, but after restart i get the black screen again after the windows logo.

Without drivers, my card is running fine.


Is my card broken? Did crimson driver destroy my card? What can i do?

I just dont understand, why my card was working fine for many years and now its broken.


I installed my old HD 4870 to secure my system is running fine and it works.
