    A couple of days ago, power was abruptly cut from my room, which ended up damaging my PC with the error code 0xc0000098. I know I need a boot repair disk to repair it, and I stupidly ordered another one not knowing that I had one the entire time. Now when I turn on my PC, it turns on but the monitor is blank (I think it was damaged 2-ish days from today?). At one point I was able to make it work, but I was unable to use the windows key or access settings, use Cortana, the Windows search box, etc.

    On a side note, I never activated my Windows because I never received my activation code. Unfortunately, I don't have any specs of the hardware. The only thing I remember is that the graphics card is the GeForce GTX 960.

    I've faced similar problems before, try another display, Try going to your bios, if you hear a beep when you go into bios or anything then it's a display problem, if you take off your panel and check I think around the bottom right, there should be a little speaker, looks like a small pinhole camera with two wires coming out of it, follow the wires to where it's plugged in and see if you can read where it's plugged in, it should say speaker that's what you need to make sure you have. If you have speakers or headset make sure they are on and connected by aus wire when you turn it on try it I will check this thread later

    Unfortunately I don't have another display, my speakers are working fine too. Shouldn't be a problem though since they aren't connected to my monitor but they're connected to my PC.
