    Windows 10 boots to black screen, no cursor, only sound.


    Hello there, Ever since i upgraded to the latest consumer build for W10Pro. The following issue occurs while booting:

    Windows 10 boots to the infamous black screen, but then nothing happens. Only windows 10 beeps can be heard when i press the mouse or spacebar. The only way to get it to boot is to kilswitch it and boot again. This happens when i cold boot it.

    I can't seem to find anything related to this issue, only the infamous black screen with cursor issue.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 boots to black screen, no cursor

    Actually, by doing all this, and with the failure to start of the USB 3.0 controller, I seem to be realizing what is causing this - it's a TP-Link (TL-WN721N) USB wireless adapter!

    Originally, it was connected to a USB 2.0 port and all of a sudden I started noticing that the adapter was frequently and briefly disabled through USB. It was disappearing altogether from the "Change adapter settings" option and immediately reconnecting.
    I had also a webcam connected to that same controller and I decided to let it run. Every time the wireless adapter was disabled, the camera also stopped working.

    I moved the TP-Link wireless adapter to a different USB controller and it had the same behaviour, but the webcam worked fine, because it remained connected to the initial, different, USB 2.0 controller.

    I then moved the TP-Link wireless adapter to the USB 3.0 plug and it didn't disconnect any more. However, the issue with Windows rebooting to a black screen started to occur (initial post of mine).

    Now, if I remove the TP-Link from the USB 3.0 and reboot the PC, it reboots form the first attempt with no issues. If I plug the TP-Link back to USB 3.0, Windows reboots to black screen and I need to press restart button on PC case. If I move the TP-Link
    to USB 2.0, Windows reboots just fine, however it makes that USB controller to stop working for a second, but frequently and randomly.

    My Windows 10 comes installed over a previous version of Windows 7. Back under Win 7, none of the above occurred!

    Tried to find newer drivers for the TP-Link, but it seems the producer doesn't have anything new. I ever wrote them about the disconnection issues, I didn't get any reply so far...

    Any ideas?

    Bottom-line,

    I ditched the TP-Link USB wifi adapter (which, by the way, I believe it also burned one USB port), bought and installed a PCI-Express ASUS wifi card and problem(s) solved. No failure on other USB devices, no problems upon Windows restart (causing a black
    screen).

    Regards!
