  1. Hey guys.

    I've been doing a bit of research on the net but to no avail and it was google that lead me to this site. Anyway i've recently had the problem where my PC boots to the splash screen, it loads then, Blackness. If you restart a few times it returns to normal and will boot up but this is completely random.

    I decided to to a re-format thinking that it would fix it. I re-installed all my drivers and it seemed to be working fine. But then it struck again...

    Frustrated with this problem i've been scouring the net to find find answers. most people tend to have very different situations to mine so i decided i would make a thread and ask for assistance.

    A few things i've tried are:

    changing monitors (used three different ones) But to no avail,

    Re-formatting

    And updating my bios

    Any help would be greatly appreciated and i can provide you with specs and driver details etc

    Cheeers guys :D
