If successful, choose Safe Mode with Networking. I then removed my graphics from device manager. I checked if there were any Windows update recently. Last month I had two Windows 10 machines, one laptop, one desktop, simply collapse software wise. I have tried anything suggested that I could. Then you should disable the power saving mode as soon as you can because it will most likely do it again next time.
I need to access my computer, I have to travel in a week. It gives me problem during installation, it gives me problem during activation, and it now gives me blank screen problem that you mention. I thought that was odd since it always creates them before updates. I do not get a cursor arrow or anything. If the drivers are not loaded prior to the update, your system may boot to a black screen. Then I focused on fixing my broken drivers.
I can follow any instructions you give me but I do not have a lot of computer knowledge. But as I said, seeing a black screen with a flashing cursor is not that bad. Hey buddy had the same problem rang tech support, told me to turn power on, then press F2, then when screen popped up, pressF9 and then enter, then press F10 then enter. Try to download some different drives to fix the problems. When I try anyway and push enter it says to stop and halt and power down the computer. Can you give me any advice on what best to do- have no clue about these things but would like to give it a try myself before taking it somewhere in case its something easy to fix!! Reboot into safe mode with command prompt 2. Please note that this particular error has stopped your computer from entering Windows.
If you sit long enough it will boot with no other problems. Right after you hit esc the computer will go to a black screen with has computer data. And this happened after about 2 minutes every time after that I had logged in to Win 8. The update when well and windows 10 is working on my laptop, however, I have an issue where I am presented with a black screen when i start my computer. If that fails to reveal anything, try F8 after Power on whilst holding down the shift key. There is no login screen either but I do also hear the welcome music. I ended up doing a fresh reinstall, and this time I decided to update Windows with the stuff Microsoft said was good for me.
This blank screen doesn't happen all the time either. What could be the problem??? I was able to go back to my previous restore point, and it is working but have a feeling once the computer upgrades again I am going to have the issue again. Thanks For windows 8, it's shift key not F8 to go into the safe mode. I turn it on, it says Dell real quick, then goes to black screen and says I can push ctrl and enter to not use password, or just enter to use password, either one I push, it goes back to the password prompt. Some causes of a black screen are incorrect shutdown of your computer, not waking from sleep mode, not knowing where to boot to, corrupt software, damaged start up, and the list goes on. Can you try another keyboard? The changes only work if you actually save them when leaving the bios.
Some people online suggest task manager and opening up other windows but nothing works, I can just move a cursor. There is a flash of the monitor extension tab that appeared the one that let's you choose if you want to duplicate, extend of have the projector display only on the right of the screen. What I did was that I dug up my giant box of computer parts and found an old hard drive that had Windows installed on it. When you see a black screen with blinking cursor you can almost come to the conclusion that your actual computer is fine because it is still running but just not loading into Windows. This is where you have to be quick….
I havn't changed anything in my configuration nor installed any new software and no upgrade. The root cause seems to be that a user with an Administrator grouped account cannot log in. Also the same thing on safe mode black screen with cursor and nothing else. Any suggestions how to fix this. Same goes for the arrow keys and the enter key. It was a security update. Years ago I had a computer that was hit and miss when starting up.
Reboot into safe mode with command prompt 2. It was taking over 4-5 minutes to sit there and get logged in, but this time it took seven seconds. I bought it refurbished and only used it once and then put it away for a year because I have a laptop. While I was using my laptop it said I should shut it down for its safety or something and I when I started it up again it had a blue screen that flashed by then went into the whole safe mode or normally screen. Please kindly help me out. I still can't find what causes the problem but I've noticed that I have that issue when I put my laptop to sleep mode with running Google Chrome browser on Desktop.
