One of the oddities about video cards is sometimes you find you can't use the latest drivers from Nvidia or ATI.
I've recently built myself a computer for the first time. I've got:
ASRock H61M-U3S3 USB3
Core i5 2320
8GB G-Skill DDR3 1333 RAM
Powercolor 1GB 6850 PCI-E VGA Card
Antec 550 Eco PSU
I've installed Windows 7 Ultimate and the software the drivers that came with the mother board. When I install the latest drivers for the video card Windows loads the desktop but there are no icons, no start menu and no mouse pointer. I've tried installing earlier drivers but I either get the same problem or Windows says they are unsigned and can't use them. Can anyone please suggest how to fix this?
