black screen when booting

yg_

I recently gave a friend my old PC and we've been working on it the past few days trying to fix this problem. 2 days ago the screen froze when I was using it and when it was responsive again a notification popped up saying "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered." After that I turned the PC off and the next day when my friend was using it the screen randomly went black with no cursor. We restarted the system and the screen just turned black when it booted up. 

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Did you try updating/reinstalling the graphics driver?

Yes. I've removed the graphics card from the motherboard and plugged the dvi cord into the motherboard and installed them. Put the graphics card back in and same thing. I also updated the system to windows 10 to see if that would do anything but it didn't. A few forums suggest that you should do a clean install of windows so I'll try that once the ssd that I ordered arrives.
