Static screen after start up

  domsnook 23:53 03 Dec 2014


After the windows 7 start up screen my TV is going straight to static. I've got it hooked up through a HDMI cable but I assume if that wasn't working it wouldn't show any display at all. First time it's happened and even used my PC earlier and it was fine. I can load it up in safe mode with no problems. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance Dom

Could be Display Driver (Graphics card) as Safe mode only uses generic drivers for a basic display. Try re-installing your graphic/video card driver.

Yes definitely a graphics driver problem uninstall and reinstall or update it.

Worked for one night and has now gone back to static screen. Tried uninstalling again and hasen't worked. Even tried downloading the AMD radeon drivers seperately and reinstalling the whole package. Any more ideas guys?
