    Windows Feature Update Causes Black Screen


    Hi,


    Some time ago, my laptop wanted to perform a Windows feature update. After the update, when I tried to sign in, Windows took me to a black screen. I could see a cursor and a box in the corner labeled Personalized Settings but nothing else worked. I tried looking up the issue to find a solution, but I couldn't follow any of the suggestions because I couldn't open task manager or anything else. I ended up rebooting into safe mode and removing the latest update and after that my laptop worked fine and I forgot about the failed update attempt.


    Fast forward to a couple days ago when my laptop again wanted to restart and update, and I let it do so and then experienced almost the exact same black screen issue. This time, there was no box labeled personalized settings, instead just a black screen with a cursor and an inability to do anything at all except shut my laptop back down. I experienced the black screen issue after signing in, but the sign-in screen itself seemed to be having errors as it displayed only a blue screen rather than the usual backgrounds. I also tried signing in on safe mode but still experience the black screen issue there. In the end, I again removed the most recent feature update in order to use my laptop.


    Windows still wants to update, as apparently I am running an older version that's nearing the end of service, showing: Feature update to Windows 10, version 1909 as the pending update.


    I would like to update Windows so that I can run a more recent version, but I have no idea what has been causing the black screen issue and no idea how to fix it. All the suggestions and possible solutions I have found in researching the issue require me to be able to take steps that are impossible when I have the black screen, as nothing runs or, if it does run, it's not visible to me.


    Can anyone provide me insight into what is causing the problem and if there's anything I can do to prevent the issue from occurring again the next time I try to install the update?


    Thank you.

    :)
