    Black screen on startup, then restarts.


    I just installed Windows 10, but every time I start up the computer, it will show a black screen before getting to the login screen and then the computer will restart by itself after about 5 seconds.

    It does this over and over again.

    Some things I've tried:

    - I have multiple monitors, so I tried disabling the other in BIOS. Didn't work.
    - I tried booting from the integrated GPU rather than my NVidia GPU. Didn't work.
    - I unplugged my second monitor. Didn't work.
    - I updated my NVidia driver through safe mode. Didn't work.

    What else can I do to fix this?

    :)

    Black screen then pc restarts

    Hi,

    There could have been some system files that got corrupted during the installation of the update. Let's try running these commands:


    • Press Windows key and type Command Prompt then run it as administrator.

    • Type DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth and press Enter.

    • Once it's done, type sfc /scannow and
      press Enter.

    • Restart your computer.

    If the issue persists, follow the steps outlined in this
    article
    to isolate the issue.

    Let us know how it goes.

    If you think this was useful, feel free to mark it as an answer to help those who are facing the same problem.

    Black screen on startup, then restarts.

    Check your event log from safe mode.

  6. Are you using the bios defaults? If not maybe give that a try.
