Hey all, I have recently bought a second-hand GPU and separate build with a Win10 factory reset.

When I try and install Nvidia graphics drivers the screen turns black before it can finish. Do the same in safe mode and I can complete the install however after a restart I cannot get to the login screen (Windows logo loads, then freezes and then goes back).

I have tried:
  • Using DDU to uninstall and reinstall
  • Using a different driver version
  • Removing and resetting the GPU
  • Removing and resetting the PCIe cable in the GPU
  • Using a different PCIe cable in the GPU
  • Factory Resetting Win10
  • Communicating with both people I purchased these parts from
Things I may try:
Getting another PSU to test with
Getting another GPU to test with

What am I doing wrong here? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Specs:
  • Win 10
  • GEFORCE GTX 1060
  • Ryzen 5 2600
  • be quiet! System Power 9 500W
