    Boot from the Windows 10 DVD
    a) At the Install Now screen
    b) Click Repair your computer
    c) Click Advanced Options
    d) Click Safe Mode
    If you get an error message saying that ‘installation cannot be completed in safe mode’, then press Shift+F10 key. That will open
    Command Prompt, from command prompt open Device Manager by typing devmgmt.msc in the command prompt and then disable the display adapters and check if you are able to boot in normal mode.
    If this allows you to boot to the normal mode and complete the installation process then go ahead and first update the display adapter
    drivers from the manufacturer’s website and check if the computer works fine.
