Hi all, I'll cut to the chase

Problem:
Last night while playing "Total War: Warhammer" my pc crashed.
After that, I have been unable to get past the "Starting Windows" screen ever since. After the Windows logo, my pc would go into "No Signal" mode and refuse to load anything.

Things I've tried:
1) Going into safe mode to do system recovery- Problem persists (Realised that GPU drivers update to the latest version on 3rd June to version 368.22)

2) Going into safe mode to uninstall the driver - I manage to startup all the way into windows. System auto detected my display card and installed the drivers. Restart into the same problem.

3) Going into safe mode to uninstall the driver with "Display Driver Uninstaller" to wipe all hidden files related to the display drivers - I can startup with the basic display card and problem persists when I did a installation of the display drivers again.

4) I've switched the display card onto another slot on the motherboard - Problem still persists.

I'm kinda at my wits end here. I've read many forums and tried what they recommended but I'm still stuck. Anyone have any advice?
