RX480 PowerColor 8GB - MSVCR120.dll

This is a new system I built and installed the latest Crimson drivers off the website, however when I open the AMD Radeon settings it crashes and my screen occasionally goes black then comes back to life. I cant run any graphic applications or games without the card freezing and crashing within a few seconds.


I have tried re-installing it over 10 times, using the DDU tool in safe mode and so on. It all comes back to this one error - MSVCR120.dll
