Solved

I increased maximum clock speed, my PC froze and I cant start windows without getting a black screen.

I have an MSI R9 290x and I was playing around with the AMD Catalyst Control Center, and I went into the MSI Afterburner tab and I increased the clock speed from 1400ish to 1700ish, after clicking apply my screen went black and the sounds were repeating (sorta like when a game crashes)

I restart the PC, windows loads and before i can even open my AMD control center I get a black screen again and i cant do anything.

I am currently on Safe Mode and I am really scared :( BTW I had some graphical spikes when playing CSGO on VERY low video settings,. thats why i decided to so something this dumb lol

pls help me!

EDIT: I am running the newest version of AMD Catalyst control center.

    Can try that in safe mode to uninstall the drivers and CCC and hopefully that undoes it.
