    Black Screen on Startup or Restart.....Windows 10


    When I start or restart my PC, I get a black screen 3 out of 4 times but you can hear all the fans and HDD sounds but no HDD activity light. I have traded out HDD's and Power Supply, still no joy. All drivers are up to date, I turned off Fast Startup and even removed all the AMD drivers and let Windows run my graphics.....still get same behaviour. I am only now trying to resolve the issue that has been prevalent for quite a while because it has gotten considerably worse. I read online that the Power Supply was the most likely the cause...sending a dirty signal to whatever triggers Startup. I tried unplugging the PC and pressing the power button to clear the signal but still same issue. I have and actual card for graphics, they are not onboard. Could the card be causing this issue. I thought when a graphics card died it was DEAD. Never seen one work sometimes and not completely fail. I would really appreciate any help I can get. If this post is not in the proper thread please move it. Thanks in advance. I have my specs listed on the forum. SPEC1

    :)
