Default APU Problems

So Here it goes bought the a10-7850k Months ago. Originally had a r7 260x or 260 since best buy is a lie. Tried to install without got it all good till i had to install Drivers. After Reset nothing loads after that. I pop 260 back in Bam Video but that causes my Computer to Blue screen Quite Often any suggestions?

Try booting into safe mode with whatever device gives you video and uninstall all AMD drivers, then use this to remove everything. Then try booting with the IGP and installing drivers.

Display Driver Uninstaller Download version 12.7.1.0

You take out all the drivers like I said by using the program I linked?

Could be a dodgy chipset? I'd steer away from AMD personally.. my experience with my HP Pavilion Dv6 AMD graphics have not been the best that's for damn sure...

The problem isn't the AMD graphics card but these dodgy cheap APU boards. Was looking at TPU and those guys have been having problems with APU setups too.
