Update: Also tried 2.78 - It seemingly gets little bit further but still hungs up before accessing the program.

I just installed Blender 2.82a off the Windows64 installer on my brand new PC and it crashes upon starting. No error visible at all.

I had previously chosen to use the OpenGL renderer (figuring it would better suit my video card). I'd like to try choosing the DirectX one instead but I can no longer find where you are able to choose.

I also tried uninstalling and installing Blender 2.7 to no avail. Have also installed the latest Python just in case, but that was no good, either.

I did a debug memory dump on the cmd.exe and the results are below.

My system configuration is found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m80bionqd0qfipv/blender_system_info.txt?dl=0

A more detailed debug output is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/i7ulibwgmgm2hlw/blender_debug_output.txt?dl=0

Any tips would be much appreciated!

OK I figured it out. I was connecting my display to the motherboard's HDMI port instead of my video card!

I couldn't access my Nvidia Display Properties as I "Didn't have an NVIDIA GPU attached to my display" so I suspected that was related, and when I fixed that, Blender also worked like a breeze. No wonder it couldn't properly find video memory, etc.
