  1. Problems with Start Screen blank


    Just installed build 10586 and get an error
    c:/programdata/microsoft/windows/startmenu/programs/desktop.ink parameter is incorrect.
    this came up after the upgrade was completed.
    cannot switch back and forth using the windows key also.
    Under programs there is no folder desktop.ink there is a desktop but this is a shortcut
    at a loss how to recreate this parameter.
    Also strange that none of my other three win 10 pro systems has this file either. I did enter this problem also in the IR problems.

    Blank screen after Windows 10 update on 9/12/2017

    I got the meaning of "hard shutdown".

    FYI as stated in problem, the blank screen covered the (1) BIOS post screen and (2) Manufacture Logo screen and (3) Sign-in screen. I heard the Windows Start-up Sound.

    In my case blank was blank.

    What I left out of the original, is I tried a Recover Disk but due to blank screen I could not navigate it.

    Again, thanks for your help.

    Anti virus for nokia 6300

    My phone started giving strange problem. The screen goes blank randomly. Then if I make call or play music player (clicking keys by guessing), then it starts on its randomly. If then I dont use phone for 5 mins, then again the screen goes blank.

    If virus cant affect, then what could be the problem?

    Regards,
