  1. Microsoft latest cumulative update caused black screen


    Wednesday 2nd April downloaded KB 4535996 installed and when told do not switch off your PC reached 100% it went into a black screen from blue with white dotted circle whilst loading I have tried everything to return to normal. Contacted Microsoft technician told to contact Acer, who advised Microsoft problem, which I did only advice provided, requires a clean wipe, losing all my files. Have another PC and a flash drive with 8+GB. Explaining impossible with Corona Virus as our children will not endanger us.

    The Acer Swift laptop self diagnoses but fails, I have tried everything with limited knowledge. System restore with two reset points prior has two errors 0x80070571 and 0x81000204. Reset hangs on 1% says undoing changes, 20 minutes failed to reset. Bit locker recovery key and went through all items F1 to F9 failed, Command Promt ran a full scan presumably on disc C: without problems,UEFI Firmware, changed Safe Boot to enable from disable. I don’t know more with this. Tried every permutation holding down keys, forcing a sudden stop twice, still will not load PC normally. All of these I tried numerous times.
    Any advice please to get this computer running,

    Thank you.

    :)

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply and appreciate your efforts to work on this issue.

    Please answer these questions to get additional information for clarity:

    1. Are you getting a black screen before signing in to Windows 10?
    2. Are you getting a black or blank screen after signing in to Windows 10?
    3. Are you getting a black screen with spinning dots after restarting the device?

    Some of the common scenarios that can cause a black or blank screen to occur are connection problems with your display, display adapter driver update issues, or issues with recent updates or installations.

    Suggest you to follow the steps from this article to check if that works.
