    Black screen after installing drivers (6600K)


      Hi, in a last month i bought a computer with processor i5 6600k

      First installation of system was success, and computer works around one month.

      Few days ago, i think that windows10 was automaticly update video driver (i think so), and only that i can see - black screen, without cursor.



      Only that i can to do - reinstall windows.

      But after few minutes on new system, i have the same issue.

      For this moment for me help only disconnect ethernet. So windows10 can't download and install new video drivers.

      After manually installing the new drivers from asus website or from intel support website, issue come back.


      For now i create a windows restore point, without ethernet and without drivers. And restore system every time.

      Also bios was upgraded and reseted to default settings


      Please help me!

      PS. sorry for my bad English.((
