Hi guys, I have a problem. three weks ago I bought some parts to build a new PC. These are the specs:
-ASUS Motherboard P8Z77 v lx2
-RAM COrsair Vengance 8gb
- Video Card Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 Ti 2gb
-Processor Core i7 3770
I installed Windows 7 ultimate but I forgot to disable windows updates and it updated, no problem with that. I downloaded the latest drivers for my video card (ver. 314.22) and installed them, it asked me to reboot and when i did, well it went just before the "Loading Windows screen" and then the monitor turned black and appeared that there was no signal. i'm really worried about that and don't know how to fix it, to make it work again I had to enter in safety mode and return to the previous version of the video adapter (VGA). Thanks to everybody, I really need your help.

Call Asus and have them walk you through the troubleshooting procedure..... Asus has great telephone support.....tho their RMA department can be a bit ditzy when trying to do anything out of the ordinary.

I recently build a gaming rig with the same mother board and similar graphic card, however I have the GTX 660. After the window logo, my screen would go black. However after looking through forums, I found this solution which worked for me. Since we have almost similar setup, you should give it a try.

Try these steps:
1. Turn off the computer and unplug
2. Remove Graphic card
3. Plug the monitor to your video output
4. Turn on the computer
5. Click on start and type msconfig
6. Select the Boot tab and click on the box that says Safe boot with minimal selected.
7. Apply then click ok.
8. DO NOT RESTART.
9. Shut Down computer and unplug
10. Install Graphic card
11. Turn on the computer (should boot into safe mode)
12. Go into Device Manager
13. Expand Display Adapter
14. Disable the Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 driver. (DO NOT UNINSTALL)
15. Click the start button and type msconfig
16. Unclick Safe boot
17. Restart

The computer will restart normally and will receive the black screen after the window logo. Just follow those step and you should have a problem. However, there is always a possibility that it may be a different issue. But since you have a new build, I highly doubt it could be anything else. Let me know if that work for you.

My rig:
-ASUS Motherboard P8Z77 pro
-RAM Patriot Viper 16GB
-Video Card Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU OC 2GB
-Processor Core i5 3570k

Juan Merlos, I wanted to say thank you, these steps worked brilliantly for me. I modified one thing though, after disabling the HD graphics 4000 driver, I also used device manager to uninstall the Nvidia drivers, and then used Guru3D Driver Sweeper to wipe the rest of the Nvidia related drivers. That way, I could to a fresh install and ensure that I got the newest drivers when the computer rebooted. Thanks a lot!

So, I gather from your directions that the monitor cable remains attached to the computer video output and NOT to the graphics card -- throughout every step, even after installing the card? At what step/point do you suggest I connect the monitor via the card? I've tried both actually.

Regardless, I'm still getting a black screen after the "Gateway" logo when the card is installed and the video feed is from the card. I get "no signal" after step 10 when the computer video-out is connected.

Any leads, help, or comments will be appreciated.

Gratefully,

NYOD

It turns out any driver after 314.22 is really buggy and drives your graphics card into the ground. That's probably the issue. You just have to roll back.

I had very similar problem to op's. I managed to circumvent it past the loading screen, and it now works fine. Although only for a while (like 15minutes), then the screen goes randomly black again. I have tested it with different monitors and cables, my computer works fine with windows safe mode or with the Standard VGA driver, so most likely the problem has to be either the card or the drivers.

Cakesok: I have installed the latest nvidia graphic driver 320.49, so if what you're saying is true, maybe this is my problem? Can you tell how can i "roll back"? Are you able to recommend some nvidia driver that you believe will work? My graphic card is Nvidia Geforce 210.(it was cheap:D )

You just have to go to the nvidia website, download, and install it. There is a chance that the card has just crapped out but it's worth a try especially if your card is the 500 series or under. By the way, when you install it you don't have to bother uninstalling 320.49, the 314.22 installer, and all the others, will do this for you.

Hello guys, I seem to have a simiar pragram with gtx 760.
I have a new PC (asus pro87, i7, asus gtx760 2OC, 8gb ram, ssd samsung 128gb) windows 7 X84
I installed everything and had no problem for two weeks.
Yesterday, I downloaded an app (named daemon tools) and at the moment I clicked on the exe file, the screen became black.
The screen works in safe mode.
-I deleted all the files related to daemon tools
-I scaned for malware, virus etc-no problem.
-I formated the ssd and reinstalled windows 7 X84 - when I install the driver of GTX 760->black screen.
-I formated the ssd and reinstalled windows 7 X64 - when I install the driver of GTX 760->black screen.
-I deleted the partitions with windows (100mb/119gb)- same problem when I install the driver.
-I downloaded the drivers from the site for win 7 X64 - when I install the driver -->black screen.
Does this seem to you a hardware or software problem?

Ehi Juan Carlos, I have the same problem. Sorry but i don't understand if, after the point 17, I can restart the computer without problems and install the Graphic Card drivers.
Thanks for the answer.

My problem was a monitor problem....
My 5 year old viewsonic monitor was becoming black in high resolution settings but worked in low resolution settings.
The pc was working perfectly. How probable is that to happen in a monitor?
Does someone has an idea if I can repair it? Some months ago I had changed 3 capacitors on my own. I wouldn t now where to look this time....

Ok so I have the same issue and almost indentical specs as OP. I tried following these steps and everything went great until I reinstalled the GTX 660 with the monitor plugged into it and booted up in safe mode. I went to the device manager and expanded 'display adapter' and there was no Intel graphics driver under it! Just an Nvidia driver, and that was before I used 3dguru or whatever it's called to remove all of the Nvidia drivers. After that it was just the Microsoft display adapter. No Intel driver.

However, when I had my GTX removed and had the monitor plugged into my onboard chipset, that's the only time it showed the Intel graphics driver. Now I'm no tech wiz, but I feel like it would be a bad idea to disable that when I'm still plugged into it.

This is endlessly frustrating and I would love to get this resolved as soon as possible. So please any input is appreciated. Thank you.

This method did not work for me, although for some reason Display Driver Uninstaller still picks NVIDIA INTEL AND AMD Drivers, even though I have gone through the cleaning process multiple times.

I have my own thread for my problem and I really need help as my PC has been down for weeks, It's the same problem that everyone else seems to get with the screen going black and the PC crashing

i found an incredible fix, dont use dvi cables, thats what i did, i switched my cable form dvi to the old style input cable (AVsomething) and the problem cleared up immidiately as if it never even existed, no idea if this is the case with hdmi tho, i think the latest few drivers fucked up the input support or something.

Using an HDMI cable also fixes the issue

I just had a similar problem after reinstalling windows, and drivers. I thought it was Geforce Experience, but I realized that my TV was plugged into the HDMI output on my GTX960. I typed my password and hit enter, but still had no screen. I then turned on the television and found my mouse cursor and desktop. After switching the monitor arrangement, the problem is solved.
