I was having this same issue with my new rig (I7 3770K) with Asus MB P8Z77-V LK.
I followed Phil_L's suggestion about plugging in the monitor. This MB has 3 video output ports - DVI, VGA and HDMI. I was using only the DVI port and like others described here, everything worked fine (after installing the Intel driver) all the way through the Windows swirling logo, then the screen would go black and nothing was displayed.
So I plugged in the VGA cable (my monitor supports both DVI and VGA) and wallah - it works. So for some reason the Intel driver is selecting the VGA output port on this MB in favor of the DVI output port. I haven't figured out a way to get the driver to use the DVI port yet. I checked the UEFI BIOS settings and they are set to use iGP by default but there isn't a setting for the output port to use.
Any other ideas? In the meantime I'll just continue to use the VGA port. Thank you.
i think the only thing u can do is reporting the bug to asus and intel and wait for it to be fixed, just like I did.
i've tried anything one's can imagine with no success.... i was hoping the latest intel driver to fix this but it has not.
@deadlyembrace, is it working fine by now? not need to buy a 50$ cable, u can just grab the cheapest it wil do the job perfectly. I've grabbed mine at amazon
It seems my PC has stabilized, only got a black screen yesterday and it recovered itself immediately (with no trouble afterwards).
That is true, I just hoped I might be able to get a cheap one in town but I was wrong. I've seen cheap ones on the web though, just haven't gotten around to ordering one yet.
(For start Sry for my bad english )i got a similar issue on windows 7 the windows boot is super slow, till the Starting windows to the welcome screen it tooks like 20 secs ona black screen but on windows 8 the boot is fast (normal) dont stop , on the windows 7 if i remove the intel dirver the boot runs fine but the nvidia driver/app stay unstable :s
Just chiming in to say that i have the same problem as well.No signal after the win7 swirling logo.
Tried all win7 drivers i could get my hands on but to no avail. I am able to get a signal when using HDMI to HDMI on an old Sony TV but my Dell monitor won't give me a screen no matter what i tried.
Of note is that the first time it worked smoothly but the problem started when i had to re-install windows 7 (for another matter altogether).
