    Black Screen of Death


    Since the last feature update my wife and a friend, who both have new laptops running Windows 10 have both experienced the exact same problem. On starting their machine, they get to the sign in page and the progress circle of dots continues for longer than usual, then the screen goes black, nothing! The only way out is to hold down the start button until the machine switches off. On the second attempt, the machine usually starts correctly. It was driving my wife crazy in the end, so, after trawling the internet for solutions, of which there were many, that didn't actually work, I ended up reinstalling Windows 10, keeping her personal files. This seems to have solved the problem. Has anyone else experienced this? I have to say that these feature updates are a pain in the a*s*. I fail to see what new features have been installed and why Microsoft think that my machine is deficient without them. I long for an alternative operating system that is as good as Windows but much less intrusive. I guess that is unlikely to ever come. But, in the meantime, it would be good to hear if anyone else has had this issue and perhaps knows of a less drastic solution to reinstalling the OS?

    :)

    Black Screen Of Death

    The Black Screen of Death is caused by a Display driver issue.

  3. Almost Black Screen of Death?


    Okay, so my sister was trying to watch a Blu Ray DVD in my computer last night, but of course it didn't work. She ended up watching a normal DVD and it was fine. After she finished, I turned off my computer normally. This morning, however, I tried turning on my computer and it gave me the normal code screen thing with quite text and a black background. This time, instead of booting normally it said "Press [Esc] to boot... (instert countdown here)" I waited and didn't press anything and it just came to a screen that was almost black and almost blue. The cursor didn't pop up and when I pressed Crl, Alt, and Delete it went back to the white text code screen. I attempted pressing Esc like it said, but it all led back to the almost black screen of death.
    I called my one of my family members for help because they are a tech guru, and they suggested unplugging everything (which I had done and proved unsuccessful), taking out the RAM and putting it back it, and still nothing. They then suggested pressing F8 when I boot up my computer, and it comes to the pop up window with two things to select. One that's called Sata and the other that's called CD or something. I tried selecting both of them, but yet again, the almost black screen of death.
    After my several attempts, my family member told me to try to safe reboot using the CD we have saved for my computer as a backup. There was no DVD in my computer during all these attempts.
    Was this caused by the Blu Ray, and any ideas on what to do? Thanks!
