Screen Black and out during AMD graphics driver install

Hello,
First off, my system:
MB: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. M5A97 (AM3r2) (2200MHz NB)
CPU: AMD FX-8350 (OCed to 4.5GHz atm)
RAM: 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 1033MHz
GPUs: Crossfire: ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series (ATI AIB)
ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series (ASUStek Computer Inc)
Disks: 120GB and 90GB Kingston HyperX SSD
OS: Windows 8 Pro 64-bit

So recently I tried to update my drivers to the newest 1/17/2013 AMD CCC Display drivers and during install, the screen goes blank and never comes back. I've had to do a hard reset on my PC to get it back up, but no drivers are installed.
So I went through and uninstalled and reinstalled all drivers like chipset and display and tried to reinstall, but now I have the same thing again. It hangs on a blank screen, no matter what port I put the display in.
So now I try the new beta drivers too and nothing seems to work.
What can I do to get these working again? At this point, I do't have any display drivers and would love to get it working again.

Any ideas or more information I can give you?

Thank you so much,
Ryan Shumaker

  1. The same thing is happening to me! However, sometimes my mouse stays on the screen and everything else is black. Sometimes... My system is almost the same as his:

    CPU: Amd fx-150 (OCed to 4.1ghz atm)
    RAM: 32gb quad channel ddr3 @ Im not sure
    GPUs: Crossfire: ATI Radeon HD 7850 series X2
    OS: windows 8 pro 64bit

    I have another problem with the ram but that is #2 to this, I cant use eyefinity without this driver (and cant overclock when needed :) )
