  1. Black screen on boot before login screen


    Laptop: ​Gigabyte U2442

    The issue is pretty much as stated in the title "​Black screen on boot before login screen".

    I've booted into safe mode and changed the startup up to diagnostic boot and it gets further. When in diagnostic mode it actually gets to the login screen, but as soon as I type in my password it gets to the part with a swirling loading thing next to the username and crashes.

    I've left the crashed screen as is for a couple of hours, as I noticed online that an update left some people at the login screen for 5 - 10 minutes, this doesn't seem to be the same issue.

    A few more notable things:

    Originally the laptop had windows 8.1 on, but the upgrade kept failing (it kept crashing on configuration). So I got a Windows 10 Enterprise key and did a fresh install.

    This is the second time I've done a fresh install of Windows 10, hoping that just got botched during installation. The first time I rebooted without updating and it crashed, this time around I updated before rebooting.

    I have gone to services and placed credential manager to automatic and that also never worked.

    Due to safe mode booting and logging in, I can only imagine that it's either a driver or service problem.

    :)

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated. 

    If you are unable to boot the computer to the start screen, follow the steps given below.

    Method 1:

    Disconnect all the devices connected to the computer except keyboard and mouse and check if you are able to boot to the start screen.

    Method 2:

    If the computer fails to boot, try performing safe mode and perform clean boot.

    Step 1:

    Try to boot into Safe Mode with Networking. Press and hold the
    shift key while clicking on Restart at the login Screen (Bottom right corner).



    [*]Select Troubleshootand click on
    Advanced Options.

    [*]Select Startup Settingsand click on
    Restart.

    [*]After restarting, choose Enable Safe modewith networking.

    If the issue does not persists in Safe Mode, then perform a Clean Boot to check if any third party application is causing the issue, as Clean Boot helps in eliminating software conflicts.

    Step 2

    Put the computer in Clean Boot and check if it helps.

    By setting your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue.

    d) You will then see a blue screen and an option to choose. Choose the option
