Was showing my miner off to my dad last night and bumped the rig. Upon bumping, the pc froze and had to be forcibly shut down. Upon reboot, I'm facing a black screen from any video connected to any of my gpus. I can remote-in using teamviewer and see that windows boots with onboard graphics and runs normally, albeit a bit sluggish. Further when I go into device manager it correctly detects and identifies all of my gpus. If I launch my miner, it immediately crashes.
First I tried switching hdmi cable around to multiple gpus on my risers – same issue. Then disconnected all of my risers and plugged in one of my gpus straight into the main pcie – same issue.
I’m hoping it’s a loose power cable or something? When I get home I plan on disconnected all power and trying to get one card booting up normally. May even pull the gpu off my main rig and see if it get past this black screen issue.

I had been running cool and perfectly smooth for about a week.
Thoughts? Prayers? Suggestions?
