    Default Z68 extreme3 gen3 - Win7 - onboard video using dvi port crashes on bootup

    New system Win7 installed fine. Instructed to use "onboard" video on set up. After installing the drivers for the motherboard, system boots but the video output is dead. Safe Mode boots without a problem and video is fine. Any thoughts on what the solution may be?

    Thought I would post a follow-up.

    The Intel VGA Graphics driver contained on the MB install disk is what crashed the video. (Driver 15.22.2.64.2372). So I uninstalled it. Worked using the Win7 drivers. I then reinstalled it as a stand-alone install from the installation disk. Without a reboot, it seemed to work fine. With a reboot, it killed the video again. So, uninstalled it.

    To add insult to injury, on reboot, Win7 then updated my drivers, adding the Intel Graphics update driver dated 8/11/0211 (Driver 8.15.10.2509) which again crashed the video. Had to uninstall that.

    So, at this point anyway, am I destined to use the less than optimal Win7 VGA drivers, or is there something I am missing here?

    Call me a control freak, but I never win7 update any drivers.
    I've set windows update to notify me when windows has available o/s updates, usually once per month, and then I almost always let windows perform the operating system updates. Sometimes updated drivers can lead to problems. It's easier to diagnose some problems when I know which drivers have been recently updated.

    Shortly after installing win7, I performed a quick test with windows auto-updating my Nvidia video card drivers and it auto installed a recent WHQL version, but the installed drivers were NOT the most recent WHQL version at the time.
