Default Looking for some help

Hi everyone I just recently updated my GPU drivers for my gtx 770 (I doubt this is what's causing the problem) and started playing a few games. Upon starting up a new game my
Monitor went black and it said invalid display. I restarted and nothing helped I tried my other monitor as well and same thing.

I have tried numerous times going into safe mode uninstalling my drivers and then reinstalling them. Everytime reinstall and boot up the same thing happens.

This all started after using the Nvidia optimizer tool, I used it to optimize all my games and was checking them out. After optimizing SWTOR with the tool this happened.

Uninstall everything Nvidia, use Driver Sweeper or something like it to remove everything Nvidia based, then install a prior driver. Do not use Optimizer.
