I have a Radeon HD 6900 2 Gb on Windows 7 x64. Got the driver download from amd website

So i tried to update my driver and during the update my screen blanked out. I thought nothing of this since the display driver was updating. Waited hours and my screen never turned back, but bluescreened instead. Now i cannot install or uninstall the driver because i get an error message that tells me that the installer is running and to finish that install. Ive tried 2 driver sweeper programs and manually deleting the driver from the registry and programs, but I still recieve the same error message. Sometimes the installer will run through but whatever parts it installed dont work since i cant start any videogames. Before trying to update my driver; any game worked. Any help on how to get a good install?

Add WICU (Windows Installer Cleanup Utility) to the list and remove the windows installer entries as well. Then try again. If it's still not OK, your system is broked, consider a reinstall.
