    iam really really tired of plugging in plugging out stuff do you think turning off the internal graphics of motherboard would fix the problem? i somehow fear that my screen will stay blank forever then

    Turn it off, I thought it would be anyway. If worst came to worst but it won't, all you'd have to do is pull the CMOS battery out for a bit.
    It'll be fine.

    edit , you have a dedicated graphic card installed don't you and not relying on onboard graphics ?

    It depends on the BIOS manufacturer, what options you get. In mine all I can do is set the order it looks in. Onboard, PCIe, PCI. I can only ever use one of the three options at one time. Even then it seems to just auto detect what's plugged in. If I remove my GT 640 the onboard works, plug it back in and it doesn't. Newer motherboards though with hybrid SLI etc can use both at the same time.

    Select disable to disable the integrated graphics when an external graphics card is
    installed. Select enable to keep the integrated graphics enabled at all times.

    actually you wont believe it.

    the problem is my new soundcard : sound blaster z
    the problem occures as long as it is plugged into a pci e slot.

    now my question is: why does a soundcard produce a phantom monitopr wtf?? guess that wouldnt have happened on w7

    Hard to say if that would have happened under 7. For now I'd go to the SoundBlaster web site and make sure it's compatible with 10. If so look for current drivers and load them.

    l *Some motherboards reserve the PCI Express x16 slots for video cards only. Use a x1 or x4 slot
    instead. For more information, consult the documentation of your motherboard. Could be this, from the soundblaster manual.

    So you could try this. Put it in PCI E 5

    actually it was in the bottom slot i dont think this one is reserved for graphic cards..
    didnt want to put my graphic card next to the power supply (pcie 6) and i didnt want to put the soundcard (pcie4) next to the graphic card (pcie2) because of the fans didnt want them to reduce the cooling because the soundcard blocks the fans..
