    Black screen during AMD Driver installation.

    I completely uninstalled AMD Catalyst under Programs and Features, also I uninstall the driver from Device Manager and completely removed AMD files using Display Driver Uninstall in Safe Mode.

    I have the same problem with this guy in this video:

    There is no fix, if your GPU does not like that driver, you have to use a different version.
    If you were trying to install 15.5, reverse back to 15.4 or to the latest stable version 14.12.
