My PC display fails (goes black) just before I hit the log in screen, and the previous screens for the boot process are noticeably at the wrong resolution.
The display worked in safe mode (at low res) and continued to work when I uninstalled the drivers. However, it failed again when the drivers were reinstalled and initialised and, again, on reboot, wouldn't reach the login screen.
To troubleshoot, today I booted into an Ubuntu live USB and lo and behold, everything was fine. I then booted into Windows, which seemed fine.
I then took the opportunity to reinstall Ubuntu after a long hiatus and, again, everything was working fine for about an hour (I'd installed the Nvidia drivers), then, all of a sudden, the resolution went really low.
On reboot, the same problem of low res boot screens and screen shutting off at the login screen occurred again.
I removed the graphics card and plugged the DVI cable into the onboard graphics card and everything's working fine now.
For some background, in the last month or so I've added:
A Zotac Geforce 1050ti 4gb purchased second hand on eBay
A beQuiet 500w system power 8 power supply
Rest of specs are:
AMD A6 APU
MSI A55M P33 mobo
So do you think this is either a faulty graphics card, or a faulty power supply that isn't kicking up the correct amount of power when required?
sounds like a driver issue. Remove your previous drivers completely with DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) and you have to login into safe mode for it work afterwards install your latest nvidia driver respectably
