Graphics drivers not loading

To start, I must appologise for any formatting issues. I'm writng this from safe mode where the formatting help section does not show... here is my build: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/WPkHw6

Running windows 10 pro x64 version 1903, but same things happen in 1809.

Drivers all updated via gigabytes website, all latest version as far as I can tell, and BIOS is F41.

Whenever I load into windows with a normal boot, and the generic video drivers, some utility automatically downloads another, and I get a black screen of death, no pointer or anything, although I can still hear sounds from USB inserting and the like. Similar happens when I disconnect and install manually from a USB (have tried the 3 latest drivers).

I can boot to safe mode, where I'm writing this, and install the Nvidia drivers there seemingly without a hitch, but booting back to normal gives the same problems. In event viewer, I can see signs that the drivers appear to have failed to load during boot (black screen after windows logo and spinning dots). These are given by the following XML files (Given at the end).

So far, I have tried several versions of windows and the drivers, all with clean installs and removing any previous traces using the DDR tool in safe mode, reseating the GPU, testing with DVI and repairing from the automatic repair (both in disk and the installation USB). I'm at my wits end about what to do next, and I have a poster to make for a conference in less than a month's time (ImAgInE My ShOcK when the computer fails right after I write my research outcomes down and submit :'D )

When you do a clean Windows install, does the screen go black if you don't install any drivers?

Are you downloading the graphic drivers from the NVidia site?

If I don't install anything, and I'm not connected to the internet for Microsoft to download them for me, then yes, it's fine.

Yes, from nvidia

Have you tried downloading the Nvidia drivers onto a thumb drive, and installing them on a clean OS install not connected to the internet?

Yes-with the current 430.86 build, a beta 431.something build, and a few other certified builds before the current. All produced the same issues.

GPU was directly transferred from old PC, I only upgraded motherboard, CPU and RAM, so I doubt it's cooked... But if it is well sheeeit.

You don't have multiple monitors hooked up do you?

I would say it might be your GPU.
