Today I installed the new Relive driver software and at the end of the install I was prompted to restart my PC through the installer. When I restarted I had a black screen with no login screen or any way to do anything other than a hard power down. I have tried a number of fixes online but I'm unable to even get to safe mode or BIOS so I can't attempt everything.


Things I've tried:

Resetting CMOS

Using a different gfx card

Using another port

Re seating RAM

Various online "fixes"


Nothing made any difference. Any help?
