  1. Windows Boots to black screen after updating. Continues to loop into "Preparing Automatic...


    Hello,


    To preface, I just had my computer's hard drive replaced because it was having this same issue.

    Windows 10 was imaged onto the drive, everything worked great long enough for me to get Windows and all of my drivers up to date. I turned off my computer after the last update completed, and when I tried to turn it back on, it does not fully boot.


    It will boot to a black screen with no response. I am not able to press Win+P to change which monitor is being displayed, and CtRL+Alt+Del does not work either. After a few minutes of black screen it will restart itself and begin the "Preparing Automatic Repair" process, to which it does not succeed, and I am brought to the advanced startup settings screen.


    This is a brand new SSD, and I am becoming extremely frustrated with the amount of issues I am having, just trying to get my PC back into working order.


    Any advice is appreciated.

    Thank you

    :)
