black screen after new drivers

I have a MSI A88X - G45 gaming motherboard, and a shaphire R9 280 graphics card with W10 64 Pro 16Gb Ram.

Since a long time had pass since I last updated my amd drivers I tried a while ago. It installed without any problem and after the reboot and the Welcome Screen from windows --> screen goes complete black.

I had to go and boot into safe mode, uninstall the drivers and then after that, run with the W10 default ones, because when I tried to install the same ones I had before I got a 182 Error.

It does not matter wich version I tried. From 18.2.1 feb 7 onwards always got the same 182 error.

I've read what that error is and tried what it recommends for it and no dice.

I don't know what to do. The only drivers I can install 18.5.1 and 18.6.1both in adrenalin and minimal setup version make my screen black, and nothing prior to those two seems to work anymore (when, in fact had worked in the past no problem)


Should I go back and try the 17 branch?


Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
