I have seen similar problems to mine, but mine is slightly different.

I have Windows seven, with an intel HD graphics 4000 and an NVIDIA G force 670.

 

I have an HDMI splitter attached so I can used both graphics cards - one for 3d movies, and one for gaming.

 

The Nvidia is working fine, but with the Intel in use I get wallpaper but no icons and no taskbar. I have tried:

Ctrl+Alt+Delete (I get Black screen)

Safe Mode (Fine when the Nvidia is use, "No signal to monitor" using the Intel)

 

All I can access on the Intel is right mouse click. I can access the Intel display set up, but it doesn't change anything.

 

I don't think this has anything to do with the splitter, because If I go straight to the monitor bypassing the splitter the problem remains.  

 

I have recently reinstalled windows 7 after a major glitch with windows 10. Today is the first time I have tried to use the Intel Graphics card since the reinstall, so a roll back won't fix this. 

 

Thanks in advance,

What is the make and model of this computer?

 

If this is a custom build please post the make and model of the motherboard.

The application I've asked you to run below will provide me with a great deal of information regarding the components used in this build.  The one thing it does not provide though is the make and model of your PSU.  We need this information as well.
 
Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download. 
 
The one piece of information the Speccy will not provide is the make and model of your PSU.  If you know what it is please post this along with the Speccy link which will be generated.
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
 
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.

There are two DVI ports on you GPU.  Why aren't you using these instead of the splitter?

Hi There,

The only way I have been able to get 3D movies to work is by using the HD graphics 4000, and using the NVIDIA G force 670 is the only way my games would run. It is a while ago, but I'm sure my PC manufacturer suggested the splitter.

What would you suggest as an alternative?

 

 

Thanks,

 

Herdsmann

Have you tried using the two DVI ports on your graphics card to see if this works?
