    Windows 8.1 64bit


    I am very much unable to do much with my computer. It took me an hour to update the drivers for the video card. There are times where the monitor goes black while the system still runs. Not sure what the hell is even going on here.

    Not trying to put you on the spot but how much experience do you have with computers? Want to figure out your level of knowledge before I reply again. Please don't take the question wrong and no offense meant.

    And your specs say "Custom Built" for Manufacturer. Custom built by who? Maybe you need to contact them, unless it means you of course.

    My knowledge stops past the point of knowing how to put the computer together.

    I was the one who put it together.

    Thanks for the honesty.

    Put the card in. Boot and then uninstall the card in Device Manager. Shut down and remove card. Turn on and go to BIOS settings. Make sure graphics is set to on board, save exit and reboot. Hopefully will reboot with on board graphics. This is a starting point.

    Uninstalled video card and pulled it out. BSOD occurred when windows loaded.

    Did you change BIOS to on board video/graphics?

    I give up without having your computer in front of me. Maybe someone else can help.

    I'll probably just see about taking it to be repaired / fixed. Thanks for the help anyways.
