Black screen during windows startup after installing my graphics card

Hi everyone,

I bought my PC one and a half years ago and it runs pretty good during this time.
However yesterday when I was playing Sleeping-dogs, i got a black screen, so i rebooted, but i got black screen right after the Windows logo showed. I can see the cursor and hear the startup sound of the system, seems the systems works fine. I can't reboot using alt+tab+del, can't do anything else, just can hit the hot reboot button from the case.

So I re-install my graphics card, it went pretty good using the integrated graphics processor during the installation, but as long as I installed the drivers of my graphics card, the black screen occur during reboot.

I've updated my BIOS, re-install the whole system, nothing works for me so far. (also, lot's of similar post from TOM's hardware solutions don't work for me either)



system specs:

Asus P8H61-M LE/USB3 B3,s1155
Intel Core i5-2320, s1155
Sapphire Radeon HD6850 - 1GB - PCI-E

Thank you

What happens if you plug the monitor into the motherboard?
try the motherboard output with the card removed?

i tried it again a few minutes ago, it works just fine.
No problem with the boot and can fully work under integrated graphics processor.

If you can try the card in a friend's computer to test. Or $120 new card :-(

Hi!

I might have a workaround to your issue since I have been fighting it myself for quite some time. I cannot be 100% certain that this will work for you but I experienced the same symptoms.

Solution:
Boot into Safe mode. search for FeatureTestControl in the registry
Change the value to FFFF on all the FeatureTestControl entries you find.

Reboot. ... Please post your results once you do it. I am trying to figure out if this is a driver level specific issue or registry gone bad on the newer drivers.
