    DVD Drives Causing Black Screen


    Guys,
    I did a clean install of Windows 10 and, because of problems with installation,I disconnected all unnecessary DVD drives and expansion cards etc.

    I decided to reconnect my DVD drives today to two spare ports on the mobo but, when I started the computer I got a black screen with two strange symbols before Windows attempted to start. The computer just hangs on the black screen. I tried disconnecting the drives in turn, different SATA cables and even starting in safe mode but the result is the same - black screen with strange symbols immediately after POST.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hello,
    Never seen anything like this before but, after some searching online, I tried changing the boot order as I could see the drive/s in BIOS.
    The black screen with those strange symbols has gone now and I can boot into Windows with the drive/s connected (I can't see one of them in Windows at the moment but at least I'm most of the way there).
    Thanks,
    Mark
