Windows 7: Display Adapter not showing up under device manager/AMD not working +

Display Adapter not showing up under device manager/AMD not working +

Hi, I've been trying to figure out how to fix this for about two days now.

I've uninstalled everything AMD/ATI (multiple times) and tried to reinstall my graphics driver using AMD Catalyst. It always says that my computer "does not contain a proper graphics adapter." I've used Driver Sweeper to get rid of remnants, I'm in safemode right now because suddenly I couldn't get into normal mode (where I'd only be able to use VGA, everything for my adapter was put as "unavailable" when I checked under advanced for display properties). After the startup screen it went black but I could still see my cursor and move it around, it might of worked if I waited a bit longer but the length seemed odd so I rebooted into safemode.

At first I couldn't even get into normal mode, it would just be black + without cursor until I uninstalled my driver from device manager, but now I can't get the display adapters to show up again.

I've read a couple things about bios and something called pci but I'm not sure how either of those work (or what they are)? I'm not super great at computers.

Thanks.

When I try to boot into normal mode, it just shows a black screen after the start up, but my mouse cursor appears and I can move it. It won't go into the log in screen, I've waited a while to see if it would until rebooting into safemode again.
