Radeon HD 7850 Black screen

I have the following problem and hopefully someone is able to help me:


Since my graphics card crashed today while playing a little bit, I get a black screen when booting in Windows. The installed driver is the newest one (18.7.1) and everything worked properly since the crash today.


So since I couldn't get any visual image on my screen I tried booting in safe mode which worked nicely. So I uninstalled the graphics card driver in safe mode und restarted the computer normally in Windows. Luckily the black screen was gone, but without any drivers it is of course pointless. So I thought, that I could install the driver again. But after doing that, I got the black screen issue once again... :/


Here is my system configuration, just in case:


  • Motherboard: MSI 970A-G46
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965
  • Memory: 8GB DDR3 (2x 4GB)
  • GPU: Radeon HD 7850
  • Driver: Adrenalin Edition 18.7.1
  • OS: Windows 10 Pro N x64 (Version 1803)
  • Monitor: LG Flatron 29EA93-P


I hope, that I've descriped my problem sufficiently. English is not my first language.

Thanks in advance!
