new MSI GTX 1050 TI Gaming X 4G - Windows 10 black screen when booting

I bought a new graphics card (MSI GTX 1050 Ti), but since installing it, I can't get it properly functioning.

While I have the basic display driver installed and I install ANY Nvidia driver (tried a lot of older ones), everything seems to function normally until I reboot.

While booting, I see the BIOS info and the Windows 10 loading icons. But at the moment I'm supposed to see the log-in screen, I most of the time just see black. Sometimes I even hear the windows startup sound, and sometimes I don't. Sometimes I see the mouse pointer and am able to move it and sometimes I don't. Sometimes the PC just reboots again after a couple seconds on the black screen. And sometimes I see part of the log-in screen, like the cursor where you would type the password or a part of a button where you would select which account to log in to.

If I just type in my password and press Enter (while seeing the black screen or part of the log-in screen), sometimes I log in to my account successfully, but after a couple of seconds the screen goes black again and the PC reboots.

The issue is extremely random, but my PC never works properly.

I have to boot to safe-mode every time to remove the graphic card drivers again (via Display Driver Uninstaller). Then I can at least boot up, but I have to graphic drivers installed, which makes gaming or videos impossible.

I've been searching all over the internet, because this kind of problem occurs often. But I haven't found a working solution yet, because even the newest NVIDA drivers don't work. I tried changing cables (HDMI, DVI) but this didn't fix it. I also tried to let Windows update find and install the drivers unsuccessfully and I updated my motherboard BIOS to the latest version but the problem still persists

What can I do to fix this?


My hardware:

ASRock M3A UCC motherbord
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor
3x4GB Kingston DDR3 1600 RAM memory (3x exactly the same)
Point of View: Black diamond BD500W power supply

  1. Have you tried installing the apps from here? Even the GPU driver. And make sure you are installing the proper version for your windows.

    Yes, I tried that driver version but no luck.
    I have NOD32 antivirus. But it's a version I've had for ages and I've never had a problem with it.

  3. Ugh, NOD32. I had that at work. I never installed it :D I won't have silly stuff on my PC.

    Anyway, is there a possibility or setting that might make your antivirus save your "previous data" as being the good data and resetting it? A friend used to use an app called Deep Freeze to counter viruses, basically it reset the Windows partition every reboot.

    Did you also try to install the apps from the same link? MSI live update. And even the first app maybe, I haven't tried it, I'm on Aorus/Gigabyte.

    No, I checked it, but it doesn't have settings like that. It's also just not happening, because the PC boots fine if there are no drivers installed. Once Nvidia drivers are installed, I get the black screens. It must be some error within the driver or that the driver is conflicting with something.

  5. Are you sure you're installing the correct version for your Windows? Right click properties your My Computer and check your exact version. Like Windows 10 PRO and system type : 64-bit operating system.

    Are you sure you're using a good DDU and the correct way? You should clean your graphics driver and any other graphics drivers if your CPU has that, I don't think your AMD should have that option.
