Boot into safe mode. Do you get a display?

On new mb with gpu the onboard video may be the main video card or the gpu. If you have the video cable on the wrong port it go black when windows loads. In the bios under primary display set it to peg and put your video cable on the gpu.

Uninstall the graphics drivers and then try to reboot in normal mode.

Look in add-remove programs. Scroll down if you see MVP software uninstall it,it made to bond ipgpu to gpu. Scroll and look for intel video drivers or video chipset. It may say 2 or 3 gen driver. When you reboot hit del key go into the bios go to primary display option set it to peg. Under that turn off multi monitor support to turn off the ipgpu. Reboot with the video cable on the gpu.
