Si I've booted to a Black screen multiple times and have diagnosed the issue as a bad driver through safe mode and hardware uninstalls. Heres the interesting part, not a single driver I get from any source works for this issue. Safe mode works, uninstalling the GPU and using the onboard graphics card works, I've found all sorts of driver versions and have used all types of installation methods and nothing works, what gives?

save the driver to a file then install driver using have disk option. If that doesn't work:

It could be the hardware is bad and not the driver

Well I tried your suggestion and I believe it is hardware. These models have a separate high end graphics card and when I did the thorough GPU self test it failed with an error code 2000-0332 that indicates video memory integrity test discrepancy. I can only assume this means there is a bad memory address somewhere on the card. Sound right?
