Ok so over a week ago (before vacation) me and a few friends were playing a game called "World of warships", when the screen suddenly went black. I could still talk to my friends (over TS) and hear sounds. After that point, every time i start my computer, the screen goes black-ish after the windows loading screen (after bios and before the profile selection)
I was able to start in safe-mode and look for solutions on the web.
After trying various things I found out that if i disable or uninstall the drivers from my graphics card (in safe mode) and then restart, it works. However, when the gpu gets its drivers installed and i restart the computer, it stops functioning.
It might also be worth noting that when i switched from my main screen (144hz 24-inch) (where i can only see black and nothing else happens), to my old screen (60hz, 20-inch-ish) i can see the mouse cursor and hear the windows startup sound (which does not happen with the main screen)

Tried so far:
-Deleting windows updates and any programs installed around the time of failure
-I tried what windows told me to do Why is my screen black when I start Windows 7? - Windows Help
-Installing an old version of "Catalyst control centre"
-Checking for registry issues with both norton 360 and CCleaner
- Checking for updates on my graphics card in the device manager
I also can't revert my system back to a previous conf because i am an idiot and didn't know you could set up a system restore point.
Anyone got any ideas what i can try next?
