Black screen Radeon HD7770 when installing Display Driver

Hello everyone,


I have a problem with installing the display driver for my HD7770.

After reinstalling the PC due to a harddisk-crash, everytime I try to install the graphics driver, the screen turns black and nothing happens anymore. So the computer doesn't crash and the screen doesn't turn into standby mode, it just "shows" a black screen.

Everything is fine until the Windows-bootscreen is shown, after this the screen keeps black.

When I boot into safe-mode an uninstall the AMD driver, it works fine with the "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" but of course only with poor graphics.


Should I use another driver than the 17.4 (which is suggested for this card in the Download-area)?


I'm running Windows 8.1 on a PC with 8GB DDR3-RAM, Intel Core i7 and a 2TB Harddisk.
