  1. Black screen, rapidly blinking cursor, no ctrl-alt-del


    I am having a problem that- after the huge problem I had some weeks ago- have made me worried.

    My pc is a panasonic notebook running windows 10. It is connected to a power plug that is somehow special- I don't know if that is the problem or not. (the plug disconnects itself after no use of some time)

    Anyway, sometimes when I leave the pc idle for some time Without any warning, without any screen saver (by the way, does windows 10 still have screensavers, I couldnt find them) the screen goes black. any intent to do something makes the cursor appears as a arrow, blinking furiously. Nothing else can be done. No ctrl-alt-del or esc works.
    The only solution is to turn it off and on manually. then everything goes ok until it happens again

    sometimes if I leave it idle for a long time, I can recover it, but if I try to go again immediately after it went black, then it is all over.

    How can I solve this?

    ---------
    My traumatic experience I mentioned was that my brand new windows 10 machine went awful for a n entire week last time. I re-installed windows 10 like 5 times, and nothing worked. The machine was impossible to work . It took me 1hour and a half to launch one program. office was unworkable.

    Turns out the problem was windows defender. It should have disabled itself automatically when another antivirus was installed but it didn't. I did it manually and now the machine works fast and ok (except for the thing I post above)

  2. Black Screen with Flashing Cursor Windows 10

    Hello!

    I updated to Windows 10 and am having issue where black screen with a flashing cursor appears during start up. I hit Ctrl + Alt + Del and it will reboot back into the same black screen with flashing cursor 3 times in a row, however on the 4th Ctrl + Alt
    + Del sequence it will successfully boot into Windows 10. It consistently requires this 4 Ctrl + Alt + Del restart into windows.

    OS works great when I finally get into it but its really annoying to have to start a PC this way. Any ideas???

  3. Windows 10 Black Screen and blinking cursor

    My screen is blank with a blinking cursor (every second or two) but I can move the cursor as usual. Windows 10 updates were installed (automatically) a day or two ago. Ctrl/Alt/Del does nothing. Rebooting doesn't help.

    Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste these commands:

    1) winver (in the pop up about windows view the windows version and build and post into the thread)

    2) sfc /scannow

    3) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    4) net user test /add

    5) chkdsk /scan

    6) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    7) shutdown /r

    8) when the computer reboots sign on the new user named test
