I received an update notification for the AMD Driver, so hit install and chose express install. Once installed it asked to restart to complete, i did this. When I unlocked the pc the home screen started flashing from normal to black and back again. I have been able to use task manager to end task the windows explorer process which results in a total black screen - no flashing. This appears to be the only process I can stop that gets any sort of result...
I dont know what to do next as I am unable to access the pc or even start in safe mode to uninstall anything.

Did you try to use task manager and get into device manager to uninstall the display drivers?
Does the screen flash in the bios?
For now please use task manager and try going to device manager.
If you are successful in doing this, then uninstall the display drivers from device manager. Steps:
Right-Click on start button> click device manager> expand display adapters>then select the display drivers that are listed and right-click on it and uninstall the drivers.
Check the box that states delete the software for this device.
Restart your computer and then reinstall it from recovery manager. Please click here to do it.
If this does not work, please perform a system restore to an earlier time before the issue started from this link and follow the option "Restore your computer when Windows cannot start normally "
If this does not help, the only option is to perform a system recovery to factory settings from here and follow the option "Recovery using HP Recovery Manager "
Hope this helps. Let me know how this goes. I genuinely hope the issue gets resolved without hassles and the unit works great.
