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:



Sapphire 7870 OC 2 GB

1600 Mhz DDR3 CL9 2x 4GB

WD Blue
