Is the monitor literally turning off or going into a brief sleep mode?

 

I get a black screen on my computers between the UEFI splash and "whirling white circles" and the return of said circles as part of starting up Windows.

Is there any way to show you the video @40MB? The screen blackens out 3-4 times before the windows logo appears.

The question is, does Windows start and does the monitor behave entirely normally once it does?

 

If the answers to the above are "Yes," and, "Yes," then there's nothing to be concerned about.

Would recommend opening up Command Prompt. type cmd in the search box..wait until you see the blue box pop up above...right click on the blue area above and select "run as administrator" click "yes" type in the command prompt box the command  sfc/ scannow    (let that run to completion)  this will check system files and replace and repair if necessary.  After that open up the command prompt box (as administrator) again and type  the command dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth    after this run the sfc/ scannow option one more time. If the problem doesn't go away after doing these things, it could be a hardware problem or a third party software problem. First culprits I would check would be in this order... video card, then the power supply.

Hi, that's a good rig. How does it run after you get it booted? if no problem I don't think I would worry about the boot, it does have some advanced features and these may be loading giving the appearance of a blank screen, my screen also blanks twice during boot. Takes around 10 secs from a cold boot to ready to run, I have faststart off, I suggest you do the same.

 

EDIT under "boot" msconfig I have only "no GUI boot" checked.

Well, I stand by my statement.

 

The startup process for Windows 10 differs significantly from earlier versions of Windows.   If the machine boots and works normally then there's nothing wrong.  The number of "screen dim/black" cycles you have at boot is irrelevant, in my opinion.
