So, i've just bought a new PC.
After i assemblated it, i tried to power it on, but just received a black screen.
So i tried to connect the monitor to the integrated graphics output, since i thought that could have been a driver problem.
But this didn't work either.
At this point i tried to remove the GPU (GTX 1060) from the PC and to boot with only the integrated graphics.
The PC works fine. It booted, and i have been able to correctly install windows.
So, here begin the problems.
As i said i thought it was a driver problem at the beginning.
But i discovered that i cannot install nvidia drivers unless a nvidia card is plugged into the pc (so it says).
So it cannot be drivers.
I'm trying to reset the CMOS, i've read that it may works in many cases.
Let me know if this is the correct procedure:
1) Poweroff and unplug the computer
2) Unplug the PSU from the MOBO
3) Short the CLR_CMOS pins with the jumper (my mobo haven't got it) or with a screwdriver (as my mobo manual says), by touching both of them at the same time for 5-10 seconds.
4) Plug everything
Am i getting it right?
Any other ideas?
I'll update to see how it goes.
Forgot to say: I'm using a VGA cable into an VGA to HDMI adapter. I'm connecting to the dedicated GPU via HDMI port. It hasn't got any VGA ports but it has got 2 DVI ports i cannot use at the moment.
I'm connecting to the integrated graphics directly via VGA, without any adapter.
Update: clearing the CMOS didn't work.
I mean: i successfully cleared the CMOS (received the BIOS message), but the screen problem hasn't been solved.
