So, I got that common problem where monitor says "No Signal" after boot. Thing is, if I boot in safe mode (from system recovery) monitor works perfectly. If I restart from safe mode , monitor works perfectly as well. But when I shut down and turn on Computer that's when the problem occurs.

Any idea what can cause this problem?

Note:
  • I am using windows 10
  • I haven't installed graphics driver recently
  • I haven't changed any hardware in a while

Do any other monitors work with your computer? It sounds like a GPU issue, try maybe updating drivers. I had a similar issue, but funny enough when I powered the monitor on and off when I booted my computer the monitor worked. Also, if your monitor and GPU have other ports try using a different cable (i.e HDMI instead of DisplayPort).

Don't really have any other monitor around right now, so couldn't test that.

I installed multiple graphics driver since then, from latest to old. But same thing happens each time. Yeah my monitor has dvi port as well. Currently using hdmi. Is it worth trying to use different port? Don't have dvi cable so will have to buy one.

Yeah definitely buy a DVI cable, see if that works they're fairly inexpensive.

yes it goes on generic so i would check gpu in another system and see what it does on generic driver also could you try another gpu in this system even a old one .
Alright, I did a mistake. As my net connection was working after unistalling driver seems like windows automatically installed a old version of nvidia driver (432 specifically). So, I tried that again after disabling net connection and monitor working fine with generic driver.
So, is my gpu faulty?
