Safe Mode -> Device Manager seems like the most logical solution here.


Safe mode is not in the options though.


Yes, device manager is the answer, because there you can install the driver.


Accessing device manager in Safe mode was not listed as an answer, so it's definitely not applicable in this presented "fairy land". Startup Repair is the only reasonable approach, because with the presented situation in this particular question it clearly states that the screen on Windows 7 cannot be seen, which also means that the user cannot access the operating system's GUI. The only reasonable approach in this "fixed" scenario, is to use a bootable media to access the repair options after the system has booted from the media you inserted (boot order can be configured in BIOS/UEFI). Comptia is notorious for presenting their questions in a "fixed" situation. Don't overthink, and don't assume. Use what they give you.
