Windows 7: Screen goes blank each time I reboot (fresh Windows 7 install)

12 Dec 2014   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Screen goes blank each time I reboot (fresh Windows 7 install)

I just installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, fresh on a brand new PC build.

Mobo is MSI Computer Corp. Motherboard ATX DDR3 1333 LGA 1150 Motherboards Z87-G41 PC MATE.

Vid Card: EVGA 02G-P4-3751-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card

As 7 was installing, each time it would auto reboot, but it would never boot back to bios, nothing. The monitor's light would change from green to yellow, like it can't see anything (like it normally does on a reboot). The PC would still be running, but after waiting around 5 minutes, I realized nothing is going to happen. I kept watching the processor light on the unit to see if any activity is happening, but nothing. From what I can tell, it just isn't booting back in.

If I hard boot it it (hold power and completely shut down) then repower, it picks back up and boots in fine. After downloading all my video card drivers and having to reboot for about the 4th time and still nothing, I had enough.

Anyone ever seen this or know where to point at helping me figure this out?

Wipe the hard drive of all code first from the steps to Troubleshoot Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums.

If this doesn't help then there may be hardware problems. Try resetting the BIOS to defaults, check all cable connections are secure.

You can also try running from boot disk with HD unplugged which will eliminate not only the OS but also the HD as suspect. Peppermint3 - Create Live CD/DVD/USB To Use For Emergency Backup - Windows 7 Forums
