I had just built a computer with my Zotac 1060 6gb graphics card. I downloaded windows 10 s by mistake, i had it running this for a while. I did not want it though, so i cleaned by hard drive in the command prompt. I reinstalled windows 10 pro, after about 5 minutes of use out of no where a black screen poped up(there was till a light behind the monitor). I restarted my computer and I was able to get a boot up screen which went straight to a black screen again. It constantly did this and I tried almost everything online to try and fix this. I even cleaned my hard drive again and installed windows 10 home this time, and the black screen still came up after about 5 minutes of use and trying to restart it.


*My computer will to to automatic repair and I can enter it through safe mode.

I would try taking out the memory (with the power off, after unplugging the PC and holding down the power button for 10 seconds) and re-seating it. Also would try following the instructions in this link. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/69012-enable-disable-bsod-automatic-restart-windows-10-a.html  (if you can get the system booted up)

What command did you run in the Command Prompt?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Does it work in safe mode? Did you enable the external GPU and set as default in the bios? If you have an integrated GPU have you tested with it?
