    Hello Everyone,

    I am in need of some assistance. I just got my P870DM-G and had a 1060 that I plan on using until I get the funds for a single 1080, or SLI 1070. I was able to install the 1060 pretty easily, it boots and loads into windows without issue. When I modify the .INF and install the drivers, they install successfully, but the screen goes black, and I cannot get the display back unless I boot to safe mode, and uninstall the drivers. This is on a fresh installation of Windows 10. I tried both 417.35 and 417.22, both had the same issue.

    I can hook it up to an external display via HDMI and it works fine, I was able to run a Firestrike run successfully.

    I am not sure where to start, does this sound like a driver issue? Should I try more drivers? Could this be a vBIOS issue? Just looking for some guidance.

    Thanks everyone

    Known issue. You need compatible vBIOS for your card.

    It does sound like a vbios HDCP type issue.

    Does anyone have any other vBios that I can try out? I have tried G Sync and non G Sync vBios from an MSI laptop. I have been searching and haven’t found many other vBios’s to try. I have also tried several older drivers, I went as far back as 375 drivers, and same thing.

    Have you checked the techpowerup database?

    I have, I tried all of the vBios I could locate on there. I ended up “figuring” it out. I had a feeling it may be something to do with the display, so I removed the 1440P AUO display that was installed, and reinstalled the 1080p screen. For whatever reason, I am able to install the drivers and the internal display works correctly.

    I was about to say because the 1060 has insanely high compatibility across the board.

    The whole monitor thing is really odd tho.
