Windows 10: Screen turns white after boot up or sometimes 2-3 mins after bootup
Screen turns white after boot up or sometimes 2-3 mins after bootup
I'm started having a weird problem that I don't even know what caused it. I was using my PC and it fine, no problem then a friend came over and I left my PC for about an hour. When I came back I noticed that my screen was turned grey and PC was not responding so I reset the PC manually. After bootup, it went fine but then again after 5 mins my screen turned white and it stopped responding, and that's how it behaves whenver I try to bootup now. Sometimes it asks for Username/Password and then after 2-3 mins it goes white or sometimes it doesn't even present me with the Login screen. It works fine in the Safe Mode. Another weird thing that I found is the problem perishes when I remove the Nvidia driver in the little time that I get between the 2-3 mins before the screen goes white and if it succeeds in removing the driver and asks me to reboot, now here's the catch. If I remove the driver and don't reboot, the system works perfectly, no matter how long I use it. Hell I upgrade it to 1607 through that. But if I reboot after the driver uninstall, I can see that driver has been removed because my resolution turns to 640x480 but after sometime it automatically gets the driver, almost instantly restoring the resolution and the same problem with white screen.
Right now, I'm writing it using the safe mode. Any idea how can I debug or solve this issue?
By the way, I'm running Windows 10 x64 and have Nvidia 970 with Intel i7 4770 (not K).
Edit: I just found that even in Safe Mode the white screen problem occurs though after a period of 30-40 mins after boot up.
I was trying to connect my laptop (running Windows 10) to a screen via HDMI. The problem was that i couldn't get it to run regardless of the settings i chose in the display options. I must have chosen the "show only on" option for the screen i...
This has happened to me a few times now but luckily I run Rollback Rx and can roll back to the last good snapshot.
I usually get the white flashing screen on boot when I try to install new security software, the latest culprits being Bitdefender...
Recently I have wired to screens up as dual screens, they were working fine at day 1 but after the left screen (main monitor) has started turning itself off completely.
As soon as I boot, the screen goes black and I am greeted with...
**dont hold me responsible it this renders your system unbootable, if it does, this same site has the information to fix it**
people with intel achi drivers, might want to try without the drivers.
I was some others had the same issue
This is weird. I rebooted and the windows logo showed up but then it went to a flashing black and white screen. I rebooted a few times and the same thing.
Then I tried F8 while booting (thinking that would get me to safe mode) and it booted fine....
