Hey guys! I'm new to the forum but I've been lurking Tek's videos for awhile now.
I was wondering if you guys could possibly help me with my PC that I just built as I've had some trouble with the display crashing on me. I'll post my specs below, but first, this is what happened...
A couple days ago I had built my new PC. Everything went great and I got the GUI Bios to come up on my MSI 970 Gaming motherboard. After making sure everything was coming up in the bios (the drives and whatnot) I proceeded to install Windows 10. The Install went great and everything seemed to be working, until I proceeded to install my XFX R7 2xx Series drivers from the AMD website.
The first time I tried to install them, as the drivers were downloading, The display went black. No response from the display whatsoever! I tried several times to restart the PC, but to no avail. So I tried to reinstall Windows 10 and with and eventually got back to retrying installing the display drivers, only for the screen to go black with no response (not even a mouse cursor). The BIOS screen even came up but as soon as Windows booted up, the screen went black.
So I told myself, SCREW IT! Ill get up in the morning and backtrack to Windows 7. I woke up that morning, booted up my old PC, downloaded 7, made a bootable USB. Stuck the USB in the slot only to have BIOS completely bypass the USB. Here's the funny thing....Windows 10 booted up normally...WTF?!?! Everything was working, the Drivers for the display had even installed.
Then, My son was playing on my new PC this morning and the display went black once again and there was no response. This was fixed by a simple restart but then my PS2 mouse wasn't showing up. Again, I restarted again and the PS2 mouse and Display came up after Windows 10 booted.
Can someone PLEASE tell me whats going on.
Thank you in advance guys.
