Whilst gaming on my desktop, both monitors abruptly shutdown. One screen went completely black while the other went blue with vertical white lines. No text or error messeges on either screen.
I restarted computer to find that upon reaching the user login screen, my screen remained black with no cursor.
Restarting again in safe mode solves the problem of black screen on login.
While in safe mode I uninstalled all drivers associated with AMD and restarted to attempt logging in normally. I can log in on normal mode with the AMD drivers uninstalled.
I reinstalled the drivers for 6870 diamond while in normal mode with no issues. After installation I am prompted to restart and do so. The black screen comes back upon reaching log in.
I completely wiped my harddrive and re-installed windows 7. I then reinstalled the drivers and the problem was again reproduced.
Win 7 x32
intel i7 870 @2.93GHz
Gskill trichannel memory, 6 gb (yes I should be using x64 OS)
GA-P55A-UD3 Gigabyte motherboard
AMD Diamond Radeon 6870 gpu
Any help is greatly appreciated.
