Black screen before BIOS starts after receiving 'VIDEO SCHED

    One day I got the 'blue screen of death' when I was surfing the interwebs with error 'VIDEO SCHEDULER INTERNAL ERROR'. Windows did all it's repairing stuff, waited like 10 minuets, my PC restarted and from now on, all I receive is a black screen (monitor is on) before the BIOS even boots. The GPU fans spin and the lights are on.

    Card is: AMD R9 Fury

    The only way in which I can use my computer is if I remove my GPU from my motherboard and plug my Display Cable into the motherboard directly and use integrated graphics.

    I have tried:

    - different PCIe slots
    - removing GPU's drivers
    - updating GPU's drivers

    I have been without a solution now for about a month. I know you might suggest testing the card in someone else's rig but I don't know anyone who would do that for me, also I took it into a computer shop and they refused to test it for me.

    What could be the problem?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, cheers!

    You've covered the basics, including how to determine the problem. I'd guess a faulty video card (or possibly the motherboard). The steps to determine which, you noted above. Aside from actually testing the hardware, there is no other way to find out which is faulty.

    If I had to guess without any testing, I'd replace the video card.

    Have you tried clearing CMOS?
