    The GPU is a hardware component that is NOT active in safe mode.
    The GPU isn't used in safe mode, because Windows uses its own display drivers.

    You really don't need a graphics card to get display, Windows will use its own display drivers.

    Sorry, I'm probably being very dense here. So I need to try booting my machine with no graphics card (and therefore no monitor). What do I do then? Hit the power button after a reasonable period of time, and plug back in my graphic card.

    Like I said, remove the GPU and try to boot.
    Do NOT put the GPU back in yet.

    Okay, so I've removed the GPU and switched on the PC. I can't see what it's doing, but my PC did cycle power once, which is what happens when the BSOD appears. So I guess it's now sat on the Windows troubleshoot screen?? What should I do now? Thanks.

    Do you have a spare hard drive you can use to test?

    Yes, I have a brand new SSD, that I was going to install before this happened.

    Use the SSD to install Windows 10, but it is recommended to have no hard drives connected other then the SSD.

    If you can install Windows 10 on the SSD and have no problem after installation, then we can diagnose the hard drive where the bluescreens occur on.

    Thanks. I've done a fresh install, all seems to be okay so far. Just letting it install all the latest updates, in case one of those is the root cause. Great Win 10 install guide BTW.

    When you're ready, connect the hard drive and test it. Only connect when already booted to prevent boot problems
