Hi,and thanks for welcome and reply
I run on:amd ryze 5 3600xt
16gm ddr4 3200mhz (corsair rgb)
Aorus b450 pro mobo
And 500 w psu(had 650w when first tested and same issue)
Win 10 pro but unable to say the version
The gpu once the windows is loaded will go black screen so with driver loaded wont go,but works on safe mode,even properly detected on device manager

Update: uninstalled drivers on safe mode,restarted it and after 2 minutes went black screen again,i believe the time to install the drivers
