    Problems after upgrade to 1909.Black screen with Personalized Settings


    A HP notebook (1703 or 1709) with multiple failed Windows upgrades had a successful upgrade today.

    Before the upgrade scannow, restorehealth, and chkdsk /scan were ran.


    A Windows 10 iso 1909 was downloaded to the desktop.
    Setup.exe was launched
    Windows updates were performed during the upgrade.

    The upgrade completed.
    There were some messages such as getting things ready.
    The screen appeared black.

    Control + alt + delete were clicked then restart.
    The restart displayed a blue screen with rotating dots for 1 hour and was powered off.

    Upon reboot the screen was again black.
    This time though there was a white strip in the left upper corner with a rectangular box displaying: Personalized Settings

    When the mouse was moved to the personalize settings box the white mouse turned into a rotating blue circle.
    When the mouse was removed from the box it appeared as a normal mouse pointer.

    When the Personalized Settings was clicked it displayed: Personalized Settings (Not responding)

    Control + alt + del displayed a blue background with:
    Lock
    Switch User
    Sign out
    Change a password
    Task Manager

    Clicking Task Manager displayed:

    Windows Explorer

    Windows Explorer is not responding.
    If you close the program you may lose information

    Close the program
    Wait for the program to respond

    Close the program > wait to report to Microsoft > black screen with white mouse

    Control + alt + delete > same choices

    In the right lower corner shutdown was clicked.


    The power cord was removed (no battery installed) and the power button was held down for 30 seconds.

    Power on hp with rotating dots > black screen with white mouse > rotating blue circle at times at tip of mouse.

    Win + Control + Shift + B > produces a sound with mouse flicker > no change in black screen


    3 power off/on were performed > preparing automatic repair > diagnosing your PC > repairing disk errors this might take over one hour to complete > took less than a few minutes > desktop appeared > logon was performed > black screen with Personalized Settings in the left upper corner > placed mouse inside box with change to blue rotating circle

    So it was reproducible.

    What are the troubleshooting options

    The following steps were performed:
    1) Ran HP UEFI diagnostics: Version 7.0.1.0

    These were tested with all passes:

    Processor check
    Wireless module check
    Hard drive SMART
    Hard drive short DST
    Hard drive optimized DST
    Hard drive long DST
    Memory extensive test
    Video Memory check
    System board

    2) Ran chkdsk /r /v > no problems

    3) Upgraded the BIOS > black screen with left upper corner Personal Settings (not responding) > Windows Explorer is not responding

    4) Booted into safe mode with networking > black screen


    Any help appreciated.

    A black screen with 'personal settings' is sometimes seen at the first sign in after a CU (when the CU has made changes that require the personal settings to be updated). There is usually only a brief delay before the normal desktop appears. It seems this one has got stuck...

    These personal settings are 'per account'. Do you have another account you can sign in with?

    The switching of users made Personal Settings disappear followed by updates (not checked to see if any changes made) > switched users Personal Settings (not responding) reappeared with change of users

    What other troubleshooting options are there?

    Well that from my experience is Internet Explorer doing a major update.
    So if you were running IE 10 for instance, then upgraded to IE 11, you would get this box at top left upon restart.
    But as Windows 10 is using Edge, there must be a problem/conflict somewhere with the old Internet Explorer updating along side Edge.
    I'll have a think of any other possibilites

    Edit: What OS was she running before the upgrade? Or sorry what was the original operating system she had?

    It was 1703 or 1709 before the upgrade.
    (Upgrade performed with iso downloaded to desktop > in place upgrade repair > updates during upgrade > black screen with left upper corner Personalized Settings box.
    When the Personalized Settings box title bar was clicked > displayed nonresponsive
    Clicking inside the box > new pop up > Windows explorer not responding

    As Bree commented > switching to different user > Windows attempted updates

    Right, thats interesting then.
    Can you get into Apps and Features? Then Optional features? Uninstall Internet Explorer 11. Thats the first thing.

    Now get into Control Panel and Programs and Features, then 'Turn Windows features on or off' Find Internet Explorer 11 and take the tick out. Restart and see what might happen hehe.
    Its all i can think of for now zbook
