Still having that black screen issue on Win7 / 7870

So I've read through this:

 

To people who have instant Black Screen or Freeze on installing ANY AMD driver

 

and I feel like asking here because I dont quite know any further.

 

We're on a Win7 64 Ultimate SP1 OS. We did a clean install after the computer randomly crashed in various games only showing a black screen.

 

Now, after reinstalling Win7 I noticed that as soon as I install the AMD driver I get the black screen after the Windows Booting animation and I came across the above linked topic.

 

So I installed an older driver, i. e. the 15.3 beta. But after installing it, the screen is blasted with horizontal weird pixely lines.

 

Tomorrow I would like to try another driver, but I'm kinda sceptical.

 

Do you think its really a driver thing or may be GPU be broken?

 

The system is back from 2012:

 

GA-Z77M-D3H

Sapphire 7870 OC 2 GB

1600 Mhz DDR3 CL9 2x 4GB

WD Blue
