Webcam doesn't work after installing driver

So my webcam wasn't working with the default windows 10 camera app, skype as well. This was one of several reasons I decided to wipe and reinstall windows.

 

So now I have a new installation. Literally only installed Chrome then checked to see if the camera was working and everything was fine. Then I install the latest driver, 20.q2.1, for my card, Vega frontier air cooled, and it's back to the same old crap. Shows 1 frame from the camera, screen goes black for a few seconds, comes back with one new frame on the camera, goes black again, repeat until webcam is unplugged.

 

So I this is definitely a driver issue, when I go to even view it reports that the amd display driver stopped working a recovered as many times as I let the black screen thing cycle.

 

Does anybody know of a fix for this, outside of buying a different card?
