  1. Black screen AFTER login, no task manager showing up!


    I keep finding solutions for the issue with a black screen before login or after login and to use the task manager, but my problem is a little different.

    I can log in using my pin, and press ctrl+alt+dlt to get the option to bring up the task manager. However, when i click it... no task manager pops up!

    I'm at a loss, been in hold with Microsoft for over an hour now. Please help!

    :)

    Desktop Screen

    The BIOS screen loads upon start up and the login screen, I am able to login but the desktop screen shows up black and no icons appear.

    The task bar on the bottom disappears and reappears multiple times and nothing else happens. I can't touch anything on the task bar as a sandglass cursor appears.

    CTRL + ALT + DEL opens options for the task manager which I can open the task manager, however under "Users" I have an open source called "Windows Error Reporting" I tried a system restore by opening the control panel via task manager but that didn't fix
    the issue.

  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
      restart.
    • 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.

    Black screen AFTER login, no task manager showing up!

    I had similar problems when I upgraded my desktop.

    Thankfully I had a full backup of my windows partition to revert back. Ultimately I ended up formatting the partition installing Windows 7, activating it with my OEM license, and upgrading from there.

    I then moved files from the backup, to the Windows 10 installation.


    I tried for a couple days, many different ways to get things working properly, but ultimately had to format the system.

    I determined my problem was caused by programs installed on my initial OS (motherboard utilities, and other hardware related programs) weren't compatible with Windows 10.


    Hope the info helps.
