Black screen after driver installation Windows 10 and HD7850

Question asked by noppesnada on May 10, 2018

I have an issue installing a AMD driver for my setup:


Intel Core i5 2500K Boxed (stock speed)

Asrock Z77 Extreme4

Kingston KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX

Zalman ZM600-HP

Samsung EVO 840 250GB

Sapphire HD7850 2GB GDDR5


After a new and fresh windows 10 installation (from scratch) i try to install the drivers for the 7850. After a few minutes the screen goes black. Even a reboot results in a black screen.


I have to boot into safe mode, uninstall the drivers with DDU and then it works again but WITHOUT the driver.


From other forums i understood the Intel IGPU driver clashes with the AMD driver so i disabled the IGPU in the bios. I even tried to prevent windows 10 to install drivers for the IGPU (which it still tries even with the IGPU disabled). Still with the same result: After installation of the 7850 driver the system goes black.


I am pretty sure the 7850 is fine as i tested it under various other operating systems and with occt. with no issues at all.


Does someone have a fix for this ?
