    I was attempting to install Windows 10 on my PC, which was already running Windows 7. The installation seemed to fail partway through and after resetting the computer it no longer show on the display. The PC turns on, the fans still run, and the lights turn on, but no display. I've tried multiple different displays and the connecting wires. I have attempted to rest cmos, run is safe mode, power cycling, and pretty much everything I could find online. I'm just not sure how to fix the problem as I'm not completely sure what the problem could be.

    Get the latest Windows 10 setup by using MS Media Creation Tool to generate a DVD or USB memory stick. Boot with it and do a Custom install, erasing all partitions.

    I've tried to do that. I have USB with the Creation tool on already, but when I boot the computer with it in the drive it doesn't seem to do anything. And since I can't see anything I can't tell if there is some option I have to choose to start the install.

    You need to run the Media Creation Tool and it will erase the USB and write the Windows setup files to it.

    Do you have no display at all, even when you have just switched the computer on ?
