Alright, I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro shortly after it released. By upgraded, I mean performed a clean install.

 

More or less, the computer has worked fine for the weeks since. Now, for the past 2 days, I have been unable to use it because at startup the computer's keyboard and mouse turn off, and the screen displays broken lines of pixelated green, pink, and blue. (To be clear, I make it into and/or past the BiOS totally fine)

 

I don't have many support options due to the fact this PC was put together by me. So, to that end, my specs are:

MSI Z87-G45 mobo

Intel i7-4770k (no overclocking at present)

NVIDIA GTX 760

Samsung EVO 120GB SSD (have reinstalled Windows 10 solely on this, still producing the same errors)

[Random Thermaltake something something] 750W gold-rated PSU

Corsair h100 series liquid cooling

 

As I said, everything had been working fine. Then I put the computer to sleep, and when I returned the next day, the screen flashed white fuzziness. On restarting from that, the colored lines are all that happens. I am able to boot into safe mode. That is another weird thing, the colored lines (and keyboard/mouse power off) don't happen until after I go through the bios screen, and see the initial Windows 10 loading screen, then they shut off, and the screen turns to the lines within 20 seconds after.

 

I'm pretty lost. I'm assuming since I can force it into safe mode (at that split second when I have the windows 10 load screen), the problem is lying with hardware. I have confirmed all wiring is correct, dust is clear, and everything looks/sounds as it should. The only thing that was happening before this was that I would get intermittent "Nvidia kernal has stopped working, but has recovered" notifications popping up. As I type this I'm sort of realizing my graphics card must be done, but maybe someone can offer another opinion?

 

Thanks very much.

Hello,

You can try to do a System Restore point to back before this problem started from safe mode

Since you made your PC yourself which is pretty cool :) you should have a copy of windows 10

If you do please follow the next link

You need to have a DVD or USB of Windows 10

I installed it as a clean install, as I was coming from windows 7. Then most recently I reinstalled, but to an SSD with no OS, so a clean install. The same problem persists.

I did try a system restore before I reinstalled, which completed successfully but didn't fix the problem.

Hello,

Ok, have you tried updating Nvidia to there newest drivers for Windows 10?
Because you said something about Nvidia driver not working well that probably is the problem​.

Here is the link to the newest Windows 10 Driver From Nvidia for your 760GTX Desktop Card.
