  1. Desktop becomes black/Taskbar unresponsive when waking up from standby


    I'm thinking it has to do with either using 452.06 after installing the 20h2 update, something on my end after I cleaned up my pc (my hand slipped which accidently dropped the screwdriver onto the gpu's pcb. trying to screw in the cpu fans onto the h80i radiator), or trying to update the drivers during the windows update installation.

    For starters

    - I used the dism after sfc found errors.
    - CrystalDiskInfo shows both my ssd and hdd are fine which it doesn't have any sector errors.

    Even after that incident I played Genshin Impact and TF2, which it runs really good so I'm guessing the gpu's fine? Although this desktop becomes black/taskbar unresponsive happend 2 times one is which on december 12th where the 20h2 update rolled in and the second time today. Although I fixed that by using ctrl+alt+del and logged out and logged back in. Afterwards I tried using sfc /scannow and Windows didn't find any errors.

    The windows 10 version I'm using right now is Version 20h2 (OS Build 19042.685).

    Also I keep getting those blank files after I moved them out of my desktop. I had to move it back to desktop then moved it out again.

    :)

  4. Desktop becomes black/Taskbar unresponsive when waking up from standby

    Windows 10 Taskbar Unresponsive.

    Dear Amma,

    Sorry for the trouble, here are few steps that I would suggest:

    • Press the Windows + X
    • Open the Command Prompt (Admin)
    • Now type the command as " Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    • Push Enter
    • Restart the system.
    • Now see if the issue persists
    • If it persists the only option is to create a new user admin account.

    Do let me know if it helped and please mark the answer as helpful if it helped.
