Hey guys,

 

so I bought a new mainboard (ASUS H81-GAMER) and a new graphics card (ASUS nVidia GeForce GTX 1060 non-OC) and

I ran into some issue that I can't solve on my own.. When I tried to install the graphics driver for the GPU it worked but after the restart

and after the bootup [the four thingies that touch while Windows 7 is booting xD] I got a blackscreen instead of the log in screen.

after that it actually booted but only the background can be seen. I cannot see either the icons, nor the taskbar or mouse..

I can, however, use the pc like normally.. whilst I can only see the background; I thought it was the explorer.exe and thus

I opened up the command prompt, taskkilled it and restarted it. It made the usual sound but nothing changed.

Trying Ctrl + Alt + Del results into a blackscreen from which I can return to the background picture with Esc.

At first I thought this was a driver problem but trying out an old driver that wasn't able to find a nVidia Card made me think that this is probably

a hardware issue and that this card was delivered damaged.

I hope you guys can help me,

 

thanks in advance~ :D

It's working probably. You need windows 10, and a new enough version, in order to use pascal cards.

You need windows 10

If you can see your desktop background with no image distortions/artifacts  then your GPU is not DOA. 

 

Looks like your driver could be crashing explorer.exe on booting into Windows.

 

Try booting into safemode and remove your existing driver using DDU and reinstall the driver again

Yes, I am sure. I have been through this before upgrading a friends PC. I'm not Nvidia, so I can't explain.

I did that several times. I even tried reloading explorer.exe via command prompt but it still didn't show anything at all D:

So safe mode doesn't work either?

It works and I can see everything but I mean that I reinstalled the driver several times, trying out other or older drivers (using DDU)

It'll need to be a recent enough version. Anniversary definitely supports it.
