[SOLVED] Maximus VIII Formula problems, dropping video output

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, so this is really weird...

System build:

MB: Maximus VIII Formula
CPU: i7 6700k
Mem: Corsair DDR4 3466 4x8GB (running at standard speed at the moment, not 3466)
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO SATA (connected to SATA 1, have tried other ports)
GFX: not arrived yet so using the GFX built into Skylake

So I've put the system together, it posts to BIOS, I can install Windows, but if I try to install any updates at all (tried ASUS MB CD drivers, ASUS online drivers, Microsoft auto updates, Microsoft manual updates), when it reboots I see the Windows loading screen, and then I lose the video signal...

I've done a fresh install of Windows about 5 times now, same result every time.

Also, Windows can't see the LAN connection, can only use wireless? I think that might be related to the drivers, but then when I try to install any, we're back to the missing video signal issue...

Any thoughts?

Solved!

Video output was running through my AV amp, connecting it directly to the TV resolved the problem rolleyes.gif
