Hi all,



Yesterday, while being in-game, suddenly my whole PC froze. Afterwards I couldn't restart the computer normally, but only in safe mode. Soon I figured out AMD drivers were causing these issues.

In safe mode I removed the drivers using DDU. I tried reinstalling old drivers, back to Crimson 6.2 but none of them work. I keep getting a black screen after the Windows loading screen. All I can do then is reset the PC, run it in safe mode and remove the drivers again.


I'm running Windows 7 64 bit on an R9 200 series.


Hopefully someone here can help me out, because I have no idea how to proceed from here.


Thanks in advance.
