Computer won't boot after clean install

Recommended Posts

Hey Y'all,

Until recently, my dad's PC has been working just. Out of nowhere, though, it wouldn't boot up. I pulled the HDD and got what files he needed off it, formatted and ran a clean install of Win 10. Installed just fine, installed some other programs (chrome, Anti Virus, etc.) and went to reboot. It starts to boot, shows the win 10 logo and a spinning icon, and then goes to a black screen and nothing happens. Any ideas what could be going on?

Pop the hard drive into another PC and run a health scan on it. See what comes up.

Tried a bios rest, no dice...

 

 

EDIT: He had a video cable plugged into his computer, but not to a monitor, so the one screen we got was the screen without a login graphic.
