r9 290 artifacts after driver update (won't boot)

I updated my drivers about a week ago and played about 10 hours of bf5 over the weekend. I just updated windows also and when I tried to start BF5 it wouldn't launch. When I restarted my pc there was a vertical stripe of artifacts when I went into the bios and when I try to boot windows goes crazy with the artifacts then sends me to repair which has the vertical stripe over it. I cant even select options. Is there a way to fix this. I have another computer I can put the card in. I just don't want to damage the second PC.
