Black screen on restart after successful clean install


Recommended Posts

Good day, comrades. 

A few days ago I got the B(lue)SOD. 

Finally managed to do a clean install using a USB boot drive and a new hard drive. Loaded into windows, looked great so I shut down to put my other HDDs on. 

Black screen. Monitor is fine, works on other devices, but I don't even get the bios startup, just blackness. 

Tried the windows key+ctrl+shift+b, all kinds of stuff... 

My mobo is old, (asus m3n78-vm, ~6 years old) could it have finally died? 

I just want to confirm that's it before getting a new system

If you experience a black or blank screen on your Windows device, try the following:
To wake the screen, use one of the following keyboard shortcuts: Windows logo key + P or Ctrl + Alt + Del.
For a black screen, use the following keyboard shortcut: Windows logo key + Ctrl + Shift + B.
