Radeon R9 Nano / Windows 10 Black Screen after boot

Is anyone else having issues with a Radeon R9 Nano card on Windows 10 x64?

My issues first started in November 2016, when (at the time) I thought the card had failed and so it was returned to the supplier, but no fault found.

I ended up having to use onboard vga and a completely remove the AMD Drivers, which it transpired had been updated by Windows update.


Eventually got everything up and running, but last week my machine started freezing whilst it was idle.

Checked the updates log, "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\ReportingEvents.log", and found out that everytime it did it, it was trying to install an AMD Graphics Update.


Looked on here last week and saw the 17.1 update available, so I downloaded that - installed it today and the machine then started locking up with a black screen about 60s after logging on - ended up having to revert a system back from last week to get my machine usable again.


Specs of machine are:


Mobo:  ASUS Z10PE-D16/WS

Mem:   64GB Crucial DDR4 Server

CPU:   Intel Xeon E5-2630V4 s2011-3

HDD:   Samsung 850 EVO M.2 SATA (500GB)
