Nvidia already has the fix to the annoying blank screen issues with the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080. The green company publishes a GPU firmware update tool that should fix this issue, which was reported to analysts. Check out the complete details below on how to fix this problem now.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 & RTX 4080 Blank Screen Issues Fix
Some RTX 4090 graphics cards were known to display blank screens during system boot. The problem was quickly fixed by Nvidia, but it requires a graphics card firmware update, so the company has shared an update tool.
Nvidia has been unable to fix the issue with new drivers, as this issue occurs before the operating system loads, thus requiring a direct firmware update.
The update tool can be downloaded from the Nvidia site. Also, they are giving a little upgrade guide.
NVIDIA GPU UEFI Firmware Update Tool (Guide)
To ensure compatibility with certain UEFI SBIOSes, an update to the NVIDIA GPU firmware may be required. Without the update, graphics cards in certain motherboards that are in UEFI mode could experience blank screens on boot until the OS loads. This update should only be applied if blank screens are occurring on boot.

The NVIDIA GPU Firmware Update Tool will detect whether the firmware update is needed, and if needed, will give the user the option to update it.
If you are currently experiencing a blank screen, please try one of the following workarounds in order to run the tool:
- Ensure you are using the latest SBIOS from your motherboard vendor
- Change boot mode from UEFI to Legacy/CSM
- Boot using an alternate graphics source (secondary card or integrated graphics)
Once you have the tool downloaded, please run the tool and follow the on-screen instructions. Ensure all apps are closed before running the tool and make sure no OS updates are pending in the background. This tool can be used with Founders Edition as well as partner cards.
