Black screen after safe mode Windows 10

by Erkkz / January 21, 2018 12:58 PM PST

Ok. So somehow i managed to get a small virus today. Basically everytime i click somewhere when in Chrome it opens another Window to something called imagerepair or something, but that is irrelevant. The thing is i searched on how to remove it and found a solution that included turning on safe mode. And so i did, and as usual it prompted me to restart my pc. So i did. When i restarted my pc i just got a black screen. And after a while i noticed That it wasnt just a black screen because none of my 2 monitors where getting a signal. They had power but didnt receive a signal. Now i Will present a list of things ive tried to fix this

-replugging The hdmi cables
-Repositioning The ram
-Replugging The GPU
-Replugging PSU

Intel i5
Gtx 1060 6gb
16gb ram
500w PSU
Asus z87 military class

As of right now i have no access to my computer whatsoever so i would appreciate some help

It could be using the i5 onboard graphics.

I'm not there and the PC details are low. But here goes.

I just fixed a few W10 blackscreens and modes that were not optimal. In the case of the black screen I removed the GPUs and used the onboard video. This may or may not apply depending on the model i5.
In another case after the video was up I had to run CHKDSK /F /R /X on all drive letters. Rebooted, let it chkdsk and then a pending update that was on hold due to the disk check error finally installed, rebooted and I was done.

Try that, tell more. A small virus can do a lot of damage so along the way be sure your backups are current.

If your I5 has an igp plug one monitor into the mobo.

Remove the gpu and unplug the hdd.

Power up do you get a bios screen?
