    Black screen after Windows logo because of the HD Graphics Driver

      Hello everyone,

       

      I have this problem for quite some time, I think it started in January. I think an auto-update was done and next time when I started the PC, I couldn't get to see the screen after Windows loaded. I just had a black screen with my monitor LED flashing.

       

      I realized this is the video driver's fault (HD Graphics 4600) after disabling it in Safe Mode. When I was running the standard Windows 7 driver, everything was fine, but whenever I tried to update or use any of the latest or oldest official drivers, I had the exact same problem.

       

      Today I thought I should try reinstalling Windows, but with no luck. This is frustrating. Do you have any idea why this might happen? Is there anyone else with this problem?

       

      Specs:

      Motherboard: Gigabyte P85-D3

      Processor: Intel i5-4570

      OS: Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit

       

      Thanks!
