I just bought a custom built desktop today and I'm having to install the drivers, etc. as a non-techie person.
1. So when I first got it, I installed Windows 7, the motherboard drivers and the NVIDIA drivers. It crashed during the last part which I think was caused by some Windows Updates, displaying a blank screen where I could still move the mouse.
2. I asked for some help online and found the best/easiest thing to do was a clean reinstall of Windows 7. I did this and everything was fine up until I reached the last stage, the Windows updates. I hit restart to complete the update and the computer started to log off, however when it restarted the windows logo appeared but when it came to the point where it should have moved onto displaying the desktop - it froze first with the just the windows logo and then turned into the blank screen again.
3.Figuring it's the Windows updates that are at fault, I restored to the point before I installed them. This worked, however I still needed to install them. When I did this, the blank screen returned leaving me fed up with how long this process has been taking :/
From the reading around that I have been doing, I think it's the video card, monitor or more likely to be these windows updates. I'd appreciate some help, please.
I've looked inside the desktop case to see if anything was dislodged or loosened during transition. This doesn't seem to be the case. I realise this might just be missing something and so have included these pics:
