I just finished installing Windows 7 and then started installing the MoBo drivers. Graphics card was noted to be generic insofar. After installing the integrated graphics driver and trying to reboot, the screen now is completely dark.
I currently have my rig hooked up to my TV with HDMI output. Is it safe to assume that I need to use VGA or DVI output for now until I can change to appropriate settings? I would try that but I don't have my monitor yet and that only has HDMI input...
I would assume this is the problem. I recently had a similar issue. After doing a fresh install of Windows 7, everything worked find until I installed the graphics driver, and then after the windows loading screen it just went to a black screen. After trying a whole bunch of different graphics drivers, I finally figured it out. I still had both my DVI monitor and my TV (via HDMI) plugged into my card. I unplugged them both and plugged just the DVI back in and there was the log in screen. If I were you, I would try to find a friend who will end you a monitor for an hour and try that. If it works, set up your TV as your default monitor, unplug the monitor, reboot and see if it works.
