Dowloaded new NVIDIA drivers a few hours ago, after restarting I get a black screen. Even safe mode boots up in black screen. Anyone ever had similar issues?

>safe mode boots up in black screen
that shouldnt be, can you enter the bios? if not or if its corrupted then you got a dead graphics card
>>

I've had that with a knockoff card.

I can enter the BIOS, I even get the "starting windows" screen, but then everything goes blank. I fon't understand this. I just updated my drivers and a minute later this shit happens. Took out the GPU and connected the monitor to the MOBO, same black screen.

OP here, posting this from my PC.
I managed to fix this somehow after 5 fucking hours of trouble shooting. Here's the entire process for anyone interested, maybe this helps you in the future.

-I wanted to see if the problem was an issue with the graphics card itself, so I took the GPU out and connected the monitor directly to the motherboard with a VGA cable, which didn't help (Could enter BIOS, see "starting windows" screen, but just black screen beyond that).
-Restarted the PC and selected safe-mode, before waiting for it to reach the black screen again I held my PC's power button for a few seconds and wait for it to shut down.
-Re-seated the GPU and switched back to the DVI-D cable that connects the GPU to the monitor.
-This time upon booting up I was met with a "repair windows" option, where I was able to complete a system restore. Everything seems to be working fine now.

Anyway, I'm not sure what it was, but I'd be wary of that NVIDIA update.

You have a i3, i5 or i7 gen 4 or below, your graphics is now not compatible with win 10 64bit, it's Intel's and Microsoft's way of fucking you over, either win 7 it or win 10 32bit will be ok

I have windows 7.
i5 3470, GTX 770.
A bit outdated for sure, but I shouldn't be getting these black screens. Seems like other people have been experiencing this with NVIDIA drivers as well, but I never heard of anybody being unable to even access the safe-mode in the black screen situation.

Yes that is strange does your cap locks key flash on start up
>>
>>283624
Yes, it does.
Does that indicate something?
>>
>>283626
Graphics chip failure, your graphics needs reflowing I'm sorry to tell you
>>
>>283628
That seems a bit far-fetched, especially if you extract this kind of information from a blinking light. Do you have any source on that?
Either way, I still manage to play recent games on medium settings with good performance. I've been planning on getting a new PC anyway, so it doesn't really matter that much, just rather do it later than now.

>>283631
I've told you what i think it is, it gives you a point to look into at least, i hope I'm wrong, i mean what do i know i just run a computer repair shop
