    Black screen, windows won't load (UPDATE: common 270X problem?)

      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.
