how to uninstall bad drivers when screen is black

Hp pavilion dv6-6007el
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
Hi there.
I was recently reinstalling windows 7 on my old laptop pavilion dv6-6007el and had to install the drivers again with it. The thing is, that seller declared that it uses intel hd graphics card and after few attempts to install them from hp website (even in compatibility mode) it still didnt work. Then I tried the next best thing (thinking
That seller just lied and remembering seeing catalyst control center when the laptop actually worked) and installed AMD drivers which were said to be for this model also. After a reboot the screen got black and wont change even after several reboots. Is there any way to remove this bad driver?

Try installing HP Support Assistant which will automatically download and install drivers/updates:

Tried that, it says "no signal detected". Wish I knew about that support assistant before I bricked it.

You would get that error if the ports are not connected right. Please check all the ports.

If all the ports are connected and issue persists, then I suggest you run an System Recovery:

I assure you that the ports are connected. At this point I would love to run the system recovery but my screen is black so how do I run it?

As you mentioned earlier the issue is with drivers and that comes into picture once you enter into OS. Recovery runs from outside OS.

Wish you luck,

Well the problem has arisen after installing the drivers so that was my guess. Okay that means the problem is somewhere else
