    Black screen displays after windows login


    I have a very frustrating problem, and I am not sure which section it belongs in. It started a week or so ago. It will post and boot to the login screen just fine. Once I login, I have a very limited amount of time before he screen goes black. Sometimes a minute, sometimes only a few seconds. If I leave the login screen up its just fine with that displaying. The monitor is still on, it does not say signal lost. The tower is still running lights and fans. It will boot and allow me to login in safe mode though

    One other forum I read with what sounds like a very similar problem said that it is usually as failure of either the graphics card or the motherboard. My entire system is less than a year old. They said that if you hit the numlock key after you've lost your display, check the numlock light cycling. If it does not cycle than it is a mother board failure. If it does cycle, then it is a graphics card failure.

    I had drivers fully updated. I believe BIOS is 2101 if I am remembering correctly. I tried rolling back the graphics drivers as well. No use.
