Black screen when running FSX

#1
I now have a black screen on initial aircraft selection screen and on screen when FSX is running. Everything else seems to be working behind the black screens. This occurred after updating the AMD graphics driver but I am not sure that is the problem. Troubleshooting performed: restored computer to time when driver was working, uninstalled and reinstalled copies of driver that was working and new driver, redid shader files, checked FSX.cfg, erased FSX.cfg let FSX creat new .cfg file. I also noticed that my current installation has no "preview DirectX 10" option. This option was previously available.

I have searched several FSX forums and found other posts with this problem. None of the fixes recommended have worked. I though FSX developers might be more familiar with graphics programing in FSX. I am trying to exhaust all sources before uninstalling/reinstall FSX and Addons. Should it come to that, any guidance on repair FSX option and/or proper way to uninstall/reinstall FSX would also be welcomed.

Thank you for any help you may provide.
