So I was doing some work in Photoshop and suddenly my screen went (not my system but this is how my screen went: http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y88/529th/IMG_2924_zpsg1u9oacz.jpg~original).

Whenever I boot the system it gets to the windows logo then on about the 3rd spin of the dots under the logo they freeze and then it goes black. I'm able to boot into safe mode and bios, in safe mode i'm able to uninstall the driver (in device manager) and use the Microsoft Basic Display Drivers but after a while the system tries to auto install the drivers and my PC will lose its display. So at the moment I have displayed my GPU drivers in device manager.

PC:
CPU: R5 2600
GPU: R9 270X 4GB
RAM: 8GB (4GB x 2) 2400
PSU: 600W
MB: Asrock X370 Killer

I'v heard people talk about DDU, however I'm unsure where to get that from as most sites look fairly sketchy.

DDU: https://www.wagnardsoft.com/content/display-driver-uninstaller-ddu-v18003-released

You can also download the AMD drivers
https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/amd-radeon-r9-series/amd-radeon-r9-200-series/amd-radeon-r9-270x

then unplug the network cable so it's not on the internet and doesn't auto install the microsoft drivers.

If it still doesn't work, the card might be dead. You can also try a video card BIOS flash as a last resort.

So basically download everything you need in safe mode, remove drivers in safe mode, unplug computer from internet, boot up in to regular mode, try DDU or install the AMD drivers.
