  1. Black screen after installing driver


    Dear helpful people,

    On the weekend I eagerly put together my new PC. Progressed through the windows 10 installation smoothly, and proceeded to install drivers for all of my hardware and periferals. During the process my screen went black, and I assumed it to be resetting after installing a video driver, as they do when shifting resolutions. So I left it two hours, and when I returned, it was the same. So I pressed the power button to initiate shut down, which went smoothly. Then restarted, which progressed passed POST, motherboard manufacturer's image loading screen, and then into the black void from whence it was moments before. Ok.

    Through the last two days I have tested rigorously to discover a cause, and searched fruitlessly for a solution that would work for me.

    The issue arrives the moment I install a display driver, regardless of if it is a display driver for my onboard graphics, or my gpu. It happens regardless if I use my motherboard's disk, drivers downloaded from manufactuerer websites, or through the windows update utility. It is an easily repeatable occurance.

    My system specifications are as follows.

    Windows 10 home edition
    MPB Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon Motherboard
    Intel i9 9900k
    32gb Corsair Vengence ram
    Nvidia RTX 2080ti with custom water block
    2x WD Black 6tb 3.5" HDs
    2x Samsung 970 EVO V-NAND M.2 1TB SSDs
    Asus PB287Q 28" Monitor

    So far I have tried:

    Installing driver through DDU in safe mode
    Installing on m.2 SSD
    Installing on 3.5" HD
    Installing on HDs in RAID
    Windows key + P fix
    Installing graphics drivers from the internet, CD and Windows update utility
    Cable checks,
    Alternate Display Ports on both GPU and Motherboard

    The system runs stably without installing a display driver. I am posting this message from chrome installed on it. But obviously, to use as a gaming rig, no display driver is kind of a killer.

    Thank you for your time and advice in advance, I am struggling to understand what I can do.

    :)

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
