Black screen before windows boots, sound and input works Tags: Radeon Monitors Graphics Last response: May 12, 2011 6:16 AM in Graphics & Displays Share daredevile May 9, 2011 1:55:29 AM Hello currently whenever I start my computer I get a black screen however the system does boot, I hear the windows startup sound and am able to log in , I just don't see anything on my monitor. I've tried switching dvi cables, even using an hdmi with an adaptor but I can't get a normal screen , only way I can get some output video is by using the integrated graphics . I've tried different monitors, upgraded my motherboard, and tested with a different power supply, still didn't work =( if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
