Question Log in screen flashing black

Jul 31, 2019
Hello there,

Not sure if this is a gpu issue but since it looks related I'll post it here.

I've had this issue for a few years now but I've managed to work around it.
What happens is when I open my PC normally and get to the log in screen it stutters and flashes and it's not really usable at that point, mouse gets reset in the middle, I can't see what's happening, etc. you can see that in the video.

The workaround I've found is getting into the bios before opening and just exiting, this restarts the pc and then it opens normally (as you'll see in the video again).

The issue has remained even though I've formatted and reinstalled windows multiple times and I think I've even changed my gpu. This issue started when I updated to windows 10 ages ago, it was a fresh installation back then as well. I don't really remember what operating system I had before that but I'm pretty sure I did not have this issue.

Honestly, this isn't as much of a problem as it is annoying to get into bios every time I open my pc, this has been going on for a long time now and I just got curious again as to what's causing it.

Thank you for your time reading this. 😄
