Hopefully I'm in the right place.
I put together a new computer today and everything was going well until when installing Windows the monitor went blank. I thought hopefully it was a fluke and reformatted hard drive and re-installed. Windows installed!
I started installing drivers from Intel's website for the motherboard. I installed the correct display driver for my system and after booting up from restart the computer freezes and the monitor shows a screen full of dark red, fuzzy rectangles.
I uninstalled driver and everything works fine again except obviously the display has a very low resolution. Tried re-installing same driver-same thing. Tried installing the WDDM driver-same thing.
Also, I cleared CMOS and made sure all wiring is correct.
So I'm thinking its a display driver issue. Any thoughts? Is there a generic driver that could fix this?
Mobo- Intel DZ77SL-50K LGA 1155
CPU- Intel Core i5 3570K
Monitor- Acer (can get exact model tomorrow)
Connecting monitor to mobo via HDMI.
