  • Any ideas on this?

    Every now and then, maybe once per 10 boot ups, possibly even less frequently, but my system will appear to boot up as normal, BIOS splash screen displays fine, windows boot up all fine.

    I get as far as the windows welcome splash screen, then when the computer would normally get in to your desktop, the screen goes black and my monitor turns off as if there is no signal to it.

    Sometimes the PC will then just restart on it's own, or ill need to turn it off by holding down the power button. So far it has never failed twice in a row, so retart has always solved it.

    It only started doing this since I upgraded my GPU, however in every other sense my GPU has been working fine, low temps good frames etc, no other issues at all.

    Any ideas what that could be?

    Mine does this exact thing too, although I don't ever get the auto restarts. Just a black screen. Caps lock light etc doesn't work.

    What GPU do you have?

        Interesting.

        Mine is a 1060 and it's only started doing it since I put the new GPU in. Wonder if it's a driver thing - something not starting properly, maybe?

        What board/cpu?

            I'm at work now but a quick Google would suggest this is reasonably common. Someone suggested disabling "fast boot" in Windows power settings.

            No idea if this will work though.

              Same gen of CPU as me too.. Although I'm running a 2500K on a Z68 board... Might try a bit of driver cleaning tonight and see what happens. I've just put up with it until this point, but your thread has reminded me that I want to get it sorted!

                    I'm also using the dvi port on the card - but I think it might be a dvi to hdmi cable. Not that it should matter, as they're both the same thing..

                        Mine is.. 850w Silverstone, so plenty of power.

                        It's been running a much more hungry gtx570 until now..

                            Since I disabled the "fast boot" option in the power settings I have yet to have this issue again, so maybe that has solved it.

                            Oddly, my PC does not take any longer to boot up.

                              sounds like the fast boot was skipping something you need maybe?

                              on an older gigabyte mobo i had it would not enable all the usb with fast boot so you could not get into the bios once you enabled it xD
