What brand is the GPU? What other components do you have? What error or problem do you get? Please be more specific with the information.

Could you do this?

Uninstall all the AMD software, I mean to all CCC and just leave the driver and try again.

I had the exact same problem. I fixed it by uninstalling MSI afterburner and downloading 2.3.0 (Not the BETA) from their site. Then I installed it and it worked! Now I can overclock with Afterburner without my screen getting buggy.
