Sounds like a video card problem. Do not have the computer connected to the internet when doing a clean install of Windows 10. Immediately disable the ability of Windows 10 to update your drivers. Install the last AMD driver for your card here. It looks like AMD is no longer going to support your card with driver updates which means any driver update will be one provided by Microsoft should they decide to do so. There are going to be three major updates for Windows 10 next year. Any of those could pose a problem.
If Windows 7 had no problems then that pretty much answers the question. You can always go back to Windows 7 provided you have your license. It will be supported until 2020.

I can't be sure that Windows 7 had no problems. Just after I installed Windows 7 I went on with the upgrade.
I have a valid license for Windows 7, 8 and 10 (10 is free if you have a valid license for 7 or 8). But once you are using a certain Windows you don't want to downgrade....
Perhaps I'll just try another video card, which is more recent, then I'm sure that this is the real reason behind this problem.
Anyway, I leave the problem behind for a couple of days because I'm on a work trip. I'll post my progress here.

You can downgrade to Windows 7 from 10 if you have a valid license but that decision is up to you. You just can't be running the OS you upgraded from and 10 at the same time.
