Blank Screen Throughout Boot

  1. I've had this problem for about a month now. It started when I put in a new Processor a few weeks after my old one died. When I turn the computer on, with the monitor hooked up to my Video Card, the screen stays blank until it reaches the Windows Logon Screen, then it is fine. It is the opposite with the onboard, it will turn on through the boot until the Logon Screen, and then it goes blank. Appreciate your help in fixing this! Thanks.

    I think the screen frequency has been somehow set up incorrectly (during bootup)

    You could try downloading the most up to date drivers from your Video card's manufacture's support page
    Then fully uninstall your existing drivers
    Restart
    Then install the newest drivers
    Then restart again

    I hope it works :)

    Thanks! In the end I ended up reformatting, because when I uninstalled my video card drivers and restarted I couldn't get past the blank screen right before the logon screen, no matter what I tried.
