I am new to this forum and i hope this is the right category.
So i was playing heroes of the storm when suddenly my screen went all weird with a sort of horizontal purple-ish lines across the screen. My computer didn't respond to any mouse or keyboard input so i restarted it hoping it would be gone when it booted up.. it was. until shortly after it happened again. First those now flickering lines and then they were gone and came back and then a complete crash. i restarted my system again and the same thing happened and right before it crashed it gave me the following warning: ''amd display driver stopped responding and has recovered''. I have an AMD radeon HD 7770 series video card.
So i thought that it must be something with either my driver or my video card. When i booted my pc up again it never got to the login screen... just a black screen. I tried booting up in safe mode what worked and disabled the display driver. Booting up normally it worked until it didn't. Back in safe mode i checked the display driver in device manager again and it wasn't disabled any more. I now uninstalled the driver completely but when i booted up black screen... Back to safe mode and sure enough.. the driver was reinstalled. I then disabled some windows function that automatically re-installed it and when i now boot up normally it was fine. Checking the device manager i see that i am now using Windows Basic Display Adapter.
So i go to the AMD site to download the newest drivers (amd-catalyst-15.10beta) and install them and as soon as it is installing the graphics driver my screen goes black. I looked around on the internet and someone suggested to use Display Driver Uninstaller. So i did and when i re-installed the drivers it was wrong...
Could this be a problem with my videocard itself? And if so. How come i can still use my screen..
BTW I also use a DVI screen and nothing changed.
So now i can use my computer but only in a way that doesn't stress videocard.. so no games..
I really hope someone knows the answer..
