    Fast Boot causes Black screen after loading Desktop


    Hi there,
    For a few days I have been having some problems with my computer. Whenever I shutdown properly and then start again, the Desktop loads fine and after a few seconds of coming to the desktop. I see a black screen in front of me, I try to press num lock on and off to see if the system froze, it indeed froze. I disabled fastboot, after that even if I start after shutdown, it boots fine.

    If I restart, it boots fine. Not sure why as my system should be fully compatible with fast boot. Here is my system specs, everything is updated as of posting:

    MSI Z87 - G43 Gaming Motherboard with latest BIOS
    Sapphire TriX R9 290 OC
    Samsung 250GB 840 EVO
    8GB RAM

    Thank you

    Ok, it is looking like it is caused by Samsung Magician software. Disabled it and now I don't have this issue so far.
