Windows 7: Games won't run in full screen but in front of a black screen

I had this issue once and had to scrub out every part of the CCC to get it working again. It sounds like you have remnants from previous installs that are interfering with your current driver install. A normal uninstall probably won't get them out.

Try using this tool, it will clean out everything, even fragments a normal uninstall might miss, so you can have a fresh install. Display Driver Uninstaller Download version

Always uninstall your old driver before installing a new one. This will prevent problems like this from happening. I know that most of the time simply overwriting the driver works fine, but the few times it causes problems they can be a huge pain to deal with. It's best to just uninstall the old driver first, and then put the new one in.
