New PC will not display after Windows update

My new PC works fine when its first installed, but when I update it, the screen goes black and does not display. The SSD light stick flickers a little, indicating that its doing something (I imagine).

I tried taking out the CMOS battery, unplugging, and holding power button. that did not work.

I set the boot drive to the SSD.

I think the problem may be the display out, as there is no GPU and I am trying to use the integrated graphics.I'm using HDMI (the only other option is displayport, which my monitor does not have.

The motherboard may be problematic, as the reviews for it were not very good.

The problem may also be the drive-- I get the "Reboot and select proper boot device" error if I set it to boot from the SSD, and I get a blank screen if I use Windows Boot Manager. 

 

2200G

Gigabyte b450 DS3H Motherboard (Bios version from 08/08/2018)

8 GB Corsair vengeance RAM

400w EVGA PSU

500 GB M.2 Crucial MX500 SSD

Cooler Master Q300L Case

Monitor: Dell S2716DG

 

***SOLVED: After installing windows, the computer stopped displaying because of the automatic display driver update. I couldn't figure out how to make it display from the onboard graphics (HDMI), so I plugged in a graphics card and then it displayed fine

it sounds like you're able to get into bios? if so you may want to just try reinstalling windows again
