Question Win 10 Laptop Restarts to Black Screen. Boots from Shutdown Normally REPOST!

Hello all!

I've got an older ASUS ROG 17" Laptop that I recently did a Windows 10 re-install on with some Restart woes.

Though I can boot from a Full Shutdown normally to full functionality, when I try to restart the laptop it stops at a black screen instead of proceeding to start Windows.
I'm thinking this is a Windows 10 problem rather than a hardware issue, but I am not sure.

I already tried restarting with the battery out and Laptop plugged in. Didn't change/help the problem. I also re-installed windows with the latest installation media on a usb and still the problem persists!
Help would be appreciated.

Thanks!
