Sorry in advance for the large paragraph. It started last night when I ran Windows Update in Windows 7. I think there were errors and most or all updates didn't install, but I woke up the next day to find that my graphics card was not being detected and I had to use the graphics from the motherboard.
I messed around with it forever and did some research on how to fix it. I thought I was on to something, viewing hidden devices in the device manager. The card (or driver) showed up but still said it wasn't connected. I tried pointing it to a directory that I'd extracted the latest driver to and I think it installed it, but then my screen went black and no matter what I try I can't get video output on the screen.
It's black and my monitor just goes into power saving mode which happens when there's no signal. This is instant when I turn it on. Nothing on screen whatsoever. The lights and fans and everything seem to be running perfectly though. I am at a loss as to what to do.
I've tried clearing / resetting the CMOS. I've also tried removing the C drive. It is the same no matter what. HEEEEEELLLLLLPPPP!!!
