    so I experienced this problem today.. I turn on my pc and everything loads fine but when its loading windows, my pc monitor goes on standby and the screen turns black while the pc is still running. Any ideas? i was thinking maybe its the Graphics card, since the lcd monitor is hooked up to it..

    Boot up in safe mode. If it works, the video drivers are fucked up. Reinstall them.
