  1. PC won’t boot to Windows 10, black screen with cursor


    I have two monitors plugged into my PC, one in the GPU and one using the motherboard.


    Today, my monitor plugged in the motherboard went completely pixelated randomly and froze my computer so I held down the power button.


    When I turned it on, I got a windows blue screen saying Kernal error or something along those lines.


    Now when I boot my PC, when it attempts to load windows after showing the ASUS logo and loading, my screen is completely black and there’s a mouse cursor I can move around and that’s it, nothing else appears at all.


    After a few seconds of moving the mouse then stopping, the mouse will disappear. It also randomly displays a loading symbol next to the mouse every few seconds


    I can boot into BIOS just fine but not into windows, any suggestions?

    :)

    Black screen after 'Starting Windows' sequence

    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.

    Black Screen With Cursor PLEASE HELP


    THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN AN ONGOING ISSUE WITH WINDOWS 10.

    Below is a Microsoft Knoledge Base entry from April of this year.

    httpw://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3055414

    "The lock screen in Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10061 might appear as a black screen with a mouse cursor
    Symptoms

    When you sign out of Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10061 and return to the lock screen, you might see only a black screen with a responsive mouse cursor. Pressing the Alt+Tab keys or the Ctrl+Alt+Del keys has no visible effect.
    Workaround

    If you are experiencing this issue, follow these steps to sign into Windows:

    At the black screen, press the Ctrl key once on an attached physical keyboard. (You won’t see any visible change, but pressing the Ctrl key will place the cursor in the password box that you’re currently not able to see.)

    Now type the password of the user that just signed out and press Enter.This will sign you back into Windows and the desktop will appear.

    If you failed to sign in because you mistyped the password, press Enter once more. Then retype the password and press Enter." ...

    PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE INSTALLING WINDOWS 10. AFTER ENTERING YOUR PASSWORD, THE CURSOR SHOULD VANISH FOR SEVERAL MINUTES WHILE WINDOWS COMPLETES THE INSTALL SETUP. MY COMPUTER, A FAST ALIENWARE, TOOK ABOUT FIVE MINUTES TO COMPLETE THE SETUP AND THEN THE WINDOWS 10 DESKTOP APPEARED.

    PC won’t boot to Windows 10, black screen with cursor

    Laptop went black and won;t reboot

    Hi Andree,

    Hardware and software conflict is one of the possible reasons why you're experiencing black screen. Sometimes, it is also because of hardware failure. To get this issue fixed, we suggest that you
    boot into Safe Mode by following these steps:

    • Turn off your computer 3 times while booting. Windows should automatically boot to the Recovery Environment after 3 unsuccessful attempts in a row.
    • Once you are within the Recovery Environment, select Troubleshoot, and then
      Advanced options, then Startup Settings, and
      Restart
      . When it restarts, you should see a number of options. Press 5 or F5 for
      Safe Mode with Networking.
    Once your computer is in Safe Mode, please follow the workaround provided on this
    link. Simply select the similar case that you're experiencing to show the troubleshooting steps.

    Let us know how it works.
