I recently experienced a catastrophic failure due to a large static shock from my body to my computer, causing the OS to freeze, and restart, and then my computer would not boot anymore. I removed my video card, and then my computer would boot up. However, I cannot boot Windows 8 into Normal Mode, but only in Safe Mode. I can see the Windows 8 startup logo spinning around, but once the login screen is supposed to show, the monitor turns off and says that the screen is not receiving a signal.
I can boot into Safe Mode with Networking, and any other safe mode, and do whatever I need to do, but no dice on the Normal Mode. I can also load up Linux Mint from a flash stick and see all my drives and such, and utilize my computer.
TLDR, I believe that my video drivers need to be removed, reconfigured, or something, but I'm not sure how to do that from Safe Mode.
