I am running an MSI Z97 gaming motherboard, Intel i7 4790k. I have a corsair SSD with Ubuntu 14.04 installed. It suddenly stopped booting up. I figured it was an issue with the SSD so I created a boot USB with 16.04 on it. It boots up to the grub screen and after I select try or install it just goes to a black screen and the monitor goes to sleep after a minute or so. The hard drive does the exact same thing. I disconnected all drives and it still does it. I have tried to boot under BIOS and UEFI, with the exact same results. Each comes up to the grub screen and will not proceed from that. I tried Mint with the same results. The PC will boot Windows 10 fine. I am out of ideas.
