I`ve posted the same in the "AMD Graphics" category, but its very urgent for me to solve, so I duplicate it here, so much more that issue belongs to drivers (i hope)

Hi! when i install any version of driver i get flickers, and black artifacts. It is more visible if to move a mouse. Is it a broken apu? I tried different monitors, different resolution, all types of connections (dvi, vga, hdmi), tested with 3 different PSU. Also, I tried to install old catalyst drivers (11.xx), but it doesnt propose me to install display driver, only audio and some other stuff. Withou catalyst driver its ok (standart vga). 

Motherboard is MSI FM2-A75MA-E35

16gb ddr3 1333, win 7 x64

Here is a video of the problem:

It does look like a broken GPU. But it can be motherboard incompatibility, RAM incompatibility. I suggest you find someone with a motherboard that supports you APU and convince them to let you try it in there. You can also try updating the BIOS, checking other operating systems with different sets of drivers etc. If you can't get it to work, just RMA it or get a discrete graphics card.
