    Random Failure of keyboard and black screen


    Hi all,

    New to forum...looks like a good place for help. I'm not a PC expert, but used to build my own PC's , so I'm pretty familiar and comfortable debugging/repairing hardware and software issues. Been using PC's since Windows 1.0..

    Anyway, New-ish HP Envy Ryzen 5, 12 GB Ram. (2) 1TB hard drives. Dell Monitor, Windows version 10, build 1803.

    I experience random (once a week or so), where upon boot up, PC gets past post, i see HP logo and spinner telling me Windows is loading. I see my NUM lock light come on...but then go off. At that time, screen goes dark, keyboard and mouse are unresponsive. BUT...PC is still on and running.

    If I power-down, then back up...most times all is well and PC /Windows are working. And as long as I leave PC on, everything works great.

    Sometimes, when I reboot, HP system diagnostics kicks in and tries to diagnose (??) PC. Usually fails to diagnose anything, but gets stuck in a loop.

    I routinely run performance checks, malware checks, use Kaspersky and use a host of tools to keep the PC running well...all checks say all hardware and software is A-OK !!

    I'm stumped. HP support told me to clean disk and do a full Windows clean install (as expected). A local HP service shop said if NUM lock light goes out, than I have a bad motherboard, no 5 volt going to KB.

    I did have an older KB (PS2 plug) connected to a USB3.0 port (with adapter). I have now put a new keyboard (USB 2.0) into a USB 2.0 port, but didn't know if that might be a cause??

    Sorry for all the details, just wanted to state the facts.

    Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

    John

    :)

    Random black screens

    Getting random brief black screens (with little notification sound when my screen comes back), random changes in setting such as fonts, and a WDF violation when computer refused to turn off, and then after being unplugged, refused to boot for some time.
