Couple problems, one is that they didn't give me any installation disk with the computer. I've tried A Windows 8 self burned ISO DVD, but it refuses to boot into it, or if it is, It's still showing the little rings then going black. As such I can't get into safe mode or repair or anything. So I have no way of checking GPU drivers at all. I've taken it out and put it back in to make sure it was seated correctly...nothing.
I hooked up a VGA to the motherboard to see if integrated would work, but it's the exact same thing, so that's confusing as well. Thanks for your suggestion though! I'm still not sure what to try next.
