    Black login screen + fast startup

    After starting up my pc the first thing that I see is the image and date, so after pressing enter i should get the login screen but in my case i get a black screen and after 2-3 seconds back at the first screen. Pressing enter again get me the same resoults few times, sometimes it shows mouse with loading, sometimes nothing, sometimes the first screen gets back after few minutes. But it always puts me back at the first screen.
    This shoud be solved easy by entering recovery options but to make things even worse my fast startup is on and I cant enter anything. I tryed 3 hard shutdowns and I get a black screen.
    Shift + Restart cant be done cuz there is no restart at the black login screen.
    Things like win + P is working but I dont have second monitor to try that out.
    I tryed typing pin blind on the black login screen but nothing
    I have been searching google for the past 3 hours and nothing silimiar I have found
    Thank you if you guys can help

  3. black screen at sign in

    Hi Jim,

    Thank you for the update.

    • Login to Windows 10 and if you have a Black Screen, wait about 15 minutes (to be sure) before you decide to reboot. Sometimes it sits there with a Black screen for a while.
    • Alternatively, at the Black Screen: turn off your monitor and after a few seconds turn it back on.
    • After login and encountering Black Screen, try CTRL-ALT-DEL. This should bring up a menu (if windows is partially running and you don't have a display driver issue). If you get the menu, select Task Manager. This brought up a single white window in the
      middle of my black screen. Expand the window by dragging the corner and you should see the task list. If you do, proceed to the next step.
    • Task Manager has now integrated the capabilities of the old msconfg.exe. Go to the Startup tab and you should see a list of programs that will execute upon login. Most are enabled. Some may be disabled. Try disabling non-MS startup programs. Save and
    • If this works, your next task is to go back to Task Manager, Startup, and re-enable the entries you disabled one by one and reboot until you discover the offending program.
    Hope this works.
