  1. BSOD then blinking cursor on boot


    I was playing a game and then suddenly got a BSOD that said Hardware failure. Now it boots to the blinking cursor black screen. I can get into the bios and both SSD's are detected, along with all other Hardware.

    The only wierd thing was that my boot drive had changed automatically, however after changing it back I am still getting the blinking cursor on boot. Is my SSD damaged? If not, What are potential fixes for this?

    Fast blinking cursor

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    Sorry to know that the cursor blinking constantly on Windows 10. I will certainly help you.

    This issue might occur if the Cursor blink rate is set to Fast.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it sets the Cursor blink rate to normal. Here's how:

    1. Open Control Panel by right click on
    Start
    Button.

    2. Change the view by option on the top right to
    Large icons.

    3. Click on Keyboard, Keyboard Properties window opens, set the
    Cursor blink rate as you wish.

    4. Click on Apply and OK, check if the issue is resolved.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.

    Thank you.
