    distinguishing Windows version / build and black screen


    Two identical computer hardware configurations were upgraded to Windows 1909.

    Computer 1 displays a black screen in safe mode and on the top center displays:
    Microsoft (R) Windows (R) (Build 18362.19h1_release.190318-1202)

    Computer 2 displays a normal desktop with winver displaying version 1909 (OS Build 18363.476)

    Computer 1 had had a Windows 10 iso downloaded to the desktop and an upgrade using setup.exe

    1) how come computer 1 is not displaying the same build as computer 2?

    2) what can be done so that both display the same build?

    3) Computer 1 displays a black screen: how can this be troubleshooted?

    :)

    Sounds like the old... windows black screen of death.

    Try this quoted from "VisiHow" article "Repair Windows 7 Black Screen of Death":

    They, also, have some other options there, too.
    Google search and you will find a lot of the "Windows Black Screen of Death with cursor" fixes.
