    Black screen after reboot into safe mode


    Whilst preparing to upgrade my motherboard, CPU, RAM and GPU, I decided to put my PC into safe mode before uninstalling my old GPU drivers switching from nVidia to AMD, didn't want to risk any conflicts. Went into config and selected reboot in safe mode, and clicked restart when prompted. Now, I get no image whatsoever. No Windows logo, no login screen, nothing if I Ctrl+Alt+Delete, nothing if I try entering BIOS setup even. I've tried to enter WinRE by restarting multiple times, I've unplugged everything and put it back in, unplugged all unnecessary peripherals, still no image. I've tried waiting it out in case it's booting at glacial pace, and still nothing. Completely out of ideas at this point, anyone got any thoughts? Amazed that of all the things that could have gone wrong during an upgrade process that it's putting the damn thing in safe mode that ruins the whole thing.


    Btw this is for Windows 10

    :)

  2. Gtx 460 black screen issue

    I have an EVGA gtx 460 that has started acting odd. Every once in awhile I would get a black screen that would require a hard reset. Then eventually the other day, it wouldn't boot at all. It would boot to the windows logo and then black screen.

    Replaced it with a spare card, booted up fine.

    Put the 460 back in, black screen.

    Booted in safe mode, boots fine.

    Uninstalled driver and reboot to full windows... boots fine with no driver installed.

    Reinstalled latest driver (was already on latest driver when this started) and rebooted. Black screen.

    Booted into safe mode and uninstalled driver again.

    Reboot to full windows, install old version of driver, reboot. Black screen.

    Reboot to safe mode, uninstall driver, reboot to full windows install reeeeeaaally old version of driver. Reboot. Black screen....


    So... the only time the card works is when there is no nvidia driver installed... weird.


    Anybody got any ideas? I haven't tried testing it in a clean windows install yet, but that's my next step I guess.

  3. Black Screen in Safe Mode only!


    I am having trouble getting into safe mode, after I type my password, I get a black screen with nothing on it, the screen is lit up but black. It works in normal mode just not Safe Mode, I Googled 'Windows 10 Safe Mode black screen' but only results show telling you to go into Safe Mode to fix the problem, there is nothing regarding this problem in safe mode alone. This is a Windows tablet so removing cables, uninstalling/reinstalling or trying a new video card is not possible here. Tweaking.com told me to restart into Safe Mode to use the application and now I am stuck, the program will not clear the safe mode flag from the boot until I run the program which I cannot because of this issue.

    Password not accepted in Safe mode

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community forum.

    Have you tried all the above steps suggested by Sangeeta Sarkar on September 13, 2015.

    I would suggest you to provide some information to help you better.

    • Are you trying to login the Microsoft account or the Local account in safe mode?
    • Did you try with only safe mode or safe mode with networking?
    • What is the critical error you are getting?

    If you are using Windows 10. To go to safe mode you have to follow the below steps.

    If you are able to go to login screen in normal mode try the below steps to go to safe mode with networking.


    • At the login screen click on the power symbol.

    • Hold SHIFT + Click Restart.

    • After restarting your system, select the Troubleshoot option.

    • Select advanced options under
      Troubleshoot screen.

    • Click on Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart and follow the onscreen steps to go to
      Safe Mode with networking and check if you are able to login.
