AMD HD 7870 Driver issues

I just bought a new system and had an HD 7870 GPU laying around. I used it in my build, but after windows loaded, i got a screen with a solid color (Mostly dark green). I tried troubleshooting the pc. It wasn’t the monitor. I tried the GPU in another Computer, but the problem persisted. I tried another GPU (GTX 1060) in the original PC, and it ran smoothly.

When I go into the BIOS, the GPU is outputting just fine, but as soon as windows loads the screen goes black/green. If I boot up in "Safe-mode" the GPU works just fine. I tried installing the drivers hoping it would help in "non-safe-mode" windows, but it would just say "Error 99". Error 99 is the only error code I have been able to get out of both of the pcs with the faulty GPU.

 

 

I have tried everything, but nothing seems to work

The pc has the following specs:

CPU: Ryzen 2600x

GPU: HD 7870

RAM: Hyperx fury 16gb 2666mz

MOBO: Asus b450-f

PSU: Corsair cx650m

SSD: Kingston A1000 M.2

I am using windows 10 pro 64bit

 

Nothing overheats or is doing anything weird.

 

 

Thanks in advance
