Hi. It all started when i played Overwatch. All of the sudden i got an error from the game "Rendering device has been lost", making the computer unuseable. Then i tried to restart my computer and then it said that there was an update it had to perform before starting the OS. Then it restarted, and said the same thing. and then again, letting me in. I looked at update history, and i saw an "AMD update" But now i was unable to play Overwatch and it sounded like the stationary kept spinning it's fan. After some research i came to the conclusion that i had to reinstall my AMD R7(?) driver. I did that via the HP support center feature, preinstalled on my pc that was able to "reinstall" drivers.
I did that BUT NOW the screen is flickering and i'm unable to do anything!
I tried going into safemode with no luck. Windows Settings wont open. Nothing will open
I remember that HP support assistant took a recovery before the update, but now i cant access it!
I will be back in 10 hours to look for answers actively on this thread. Thank you!
EDIT: I have now solved the problem. I was able to restore my system to BEFORE the update got installed. I'm positive the drivers caused the problem.
