    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 flashing cursor

    Two weeks ago I had to delete and reload Windows 10. A few days ago my screen suddenly went black with the blinking cursor in the top left hand corner.

    I can only do a hard reboot, and when I do, on my screen I briefly get the Dell logo with
    F2 Set Up / F12 Boot Options in the lower right corner. Then it quickly reverts to a black screen with blinking cursor. Pressing either of the F2 /F12 keys has no effect.

    I have attempted to do a hard boot 3 & 4 times in succession but it always comes back to the black screen with blinking cursor.

    No sticky key combinations that I have seen mentioned on the Community page work at all. I'm stuck on the black screen with cursor.

    Any suggestions?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
