My monitor is going to sleep and the computer keeps on going.

My monitor is going to sleep after booting.  It allows me enough time to enter MSI bios.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  I pulled the hard drive today and ran a test on it and a bad driver was detected.  Could it be that or something more?  I've already replaced the power supply and the graphics card.

...
1. boot into Safe-Mode
2. uninstall GPU Driver
3. reboot
4. install latest driver for your GPU

PC: R7 2700X @4.1GHz + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS

The monitor goes to sleep before I can enter safe mode. I have DBAN at work. I plan to do a quick wipe of my hard drive and reinstall all of the latest drivers along with Windows 10 v.1709.

I'm suspecting that the bad driver could be the problem.

What do you mean your monitor goes to sleep? Your PC cant cant to sleep unless it boots into Windows. You maybe experiencing a black screen after post which could be a number of things. If its GPU driver related than Safe Mode should work. Most other problems that would cause the screen to go black is hardware problem like HDD, GPU.

I stand corrected that my monitor isn't going to sleep.  It is actually going to no signal. It did this both with my hard drive as well as without.

Re: My monitor is going to sleep and the computer keeps on going.

Hello,

It could be a driver issue and was a known issue of the gpu driver in the past.
Can you give us your gpu model and the version of the Adrenalin driver you are running on the rig.
Please can you cycle you monitor power when you get the no signal stamp on your monitor and tell me if the image come back.
Thanks.

Then its GPU related. Has nothing to do with HDD.

SAFE MODE uses limited HW access - so all your GPU driver is disabled (mostly) - so IT CANT go into "No Signal" - because it uses same output way as your BIOS/Bootup

btw - there should be a VGA mode - maybe you use a not supported resolution
