Hi @diva1523445

Welcome to the forums! :)

Nope. You can uninstall the drivers. If you uninstall the GPU driver, then Windows will just use it's own default driver. All your desktop icons will be big and you'll not be able to tweak your resolution much past basic settings but your PC will still turn on and you'll be able to see whats on the screen. (Much like when Windows is 1st installed, there are no dedicated GPU drivers then, but the monitor still turns on)

What is it you're trying to do?

If your monitor is not displaying, it's not due to uninstalling the driver. There is an underlying issue. What GPU do you have? Tried changing the source on your monitor? When does the screen go black? At the desktop I'd presume? When was the last time you reinstalled your OS?
