i have recently built my own pc and have installed windows 7 64Bit home edition
the install went fine and i uploaded the drivers supplied with the motherboard and windows updates and the graphics card
however on the reboot the computer gets up to windows loading icon and then the monitor disconnects every time
the pc remains on with the HDD light flickering normally
i can open in safe mode
when ever i format the hard drives and install again the same thing happens
i am using a hdmi cable to the monitor which is HD and works with my PS3

how can i install the right drivers if i cant get into windows 7, without using safe mode

This is driving me insane!

these are my specs

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium - Licence and media - 1 PC - OEM - DVD - 64-bit - English


Samsung SH-B083L 8x BD-ROM with DVD±RW DL SATA Blu-Ray Drive


Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB Cache


Intel Core i7 950 3.06GHz Socket 1366 8MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor


Asus P6TD Deluxe X58 Socket 1366 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard


SapphireHD 5850 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI Display Port Out PCI-E Graphics Card


Corsair 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz XMS3 Memory CL9(9-9-9-24) for i7 motherboards

Thanks in advance and i hope someone can help

Reboot the machine and hit F8 as though you are going into Safe Mode. Select Enable low-resolution video (640 x 480), instead. This is essentially boots Windows normally, but does loads the generic video driver instead of the installed driver. Uninstall the video driver and download the proper ATI Catalyst driver from the AMD website this time.

NEVER use Windows Update for video drivers unless it's an integrated Intel video chip. Discrete cards should always have their drivers downloaded from the manufacturer's website.

So can you or can't you go to safemode?

go to the mobo's manufacturer and get the latest drivers for 64 bit os, do the same with the graphic card.
