    Have you performed a clean install of graphics card Drivers? Removing old Driver's using DDU in safe mode and then installing latest GPU Driver. What is your computer hardware,What OS are you running. We need more info to properly help you.

    Is your motherboard bios fully up to date?

    What was your Old GPU & what driver were you running ?
     
    And all the questions posted above
     
    Check this Nvidia Tool  DP 1.3 / 1.4 monitor could blank screens on boot until the OS loads or Hang on Boot



    Remember to turn Windows 10 Fast Startup OFF, when upgrading drivers, firmware or hardware

    Windows 10 there is a new “hybrid” startup mode that should cut down on boot up times - It does this by putting the PC into hibernation instead of "fully shutting down."


    Windows Central - How to disable Windows 10 fast startup (and why you'd want to)

    How-to Geek The Pros and Cons of Windows 10’s “Fast Startup” Mode
     
    Run DDU safe mode with reboot to remove old driver - if you can not, then install your Old GPU, run DDU safe mode with shutdown, change GPU & reboot
     
    Make sure you follow All safety precautions - like removing Power from wall & allow PSU to discharge before adding or removing Anything to your MB, because if it is plugged into the wall there is Still power to the MB - even when it is "Off"

    Load into the bios, and load optimized defaults then save and exit the bios. See if that fixes it.

     What would be the case where the bios is latest?

    ? what are you asking about - the MB or the GPU ?
     
    What types of cable from GPU to Monitor have you tested ?
     
    Tell us about your PC hardware, Monitor, OS
     
    What was your Old GPU & what driver were you running ?

    What happens when you BOOT into Safe Mode ?
     
    Does your CPU have a builtin graphics - "iGPU" ?  If so, connect it to your monitor, go into BIOS of MB & disable the iGPU

    If you can get into the BIOS, check that the Boot Disk Priority is correct, set to boot from the disk with your OS on it.
     
    Sometimes when installing new hardware, the Boot Disk Priority can get messed up and changed to a drive that that has no OS on it, consequently booting to a black screen with a blinking cursor.
     
    I have had that happen a few times when physically installing or physically removing and reinstalling a graphics card.

    Does this issue happen when the computer is booted into safe mode? Does it happen at other resolutions like 800x600?

    The boot disk priority is like HDD>>USB>>DVD. Seems to be what you are saying.

    So if you remove your new gpu, and install an older one the pc boots up just fine?

    It might be issue with your graphic card, its not working or not compatible with your device.

    I am on GTX 1660 XC and my MB bios is updated to it's latest version. I have a i5 With 8GB ram and 1 TB hdd.




    This is NOT a full list of your Hardware  Bob asked for ...eg the motherboard model and revision , it may not even be compatible with a modern GPU like the GTX1660  ie no UEFI Bios. this problem goes back years as far as the 750ti at least
     
    The more info you provide the easier it is for knowledgeable User here to help.
