Action 3: Remove third-party antivirus software
 
Sometimes third-party antivirus software causes black or blank screens. You can temporarily uninstall third-party antivirus software to determine if it's causing the screen issue, then reinstall it after your device is back up and running. Your device won't be unprotected because Windows Defender Antivirus kicks in if no other antivirus software is running. Get more info about Windows Security.

Might also want to try a Power flush
 
      1 - Shut down
 
      2 - Unplug PC & anything connected to PC that is plugged into the wall (monitor, printer, USB hub ...)
 
      3 - Now hold "start button" in for 20 sec to discharge capacitors ....
 
      4 - Plug in & reboot
