Odd problem with my PC.
Occasionally when I reboot or power cycle, the system seems to boot OK but there is no display, just a black screen.
During the bootup, the cursor is momentarily displayed, as normal.
After system has booted, if I turn the monitor off and then back on, the Desktop displays for about a half-second. Then back to black screen.
Booting to Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration doesn't help.
After futzing around for an hour, I finally got it to display.
It's happened several times in the past month.
Any ideas? I don't think it's a hardware problem, tho it might be.
