    Black screen of death loop


    I installed windows 10 and it seems great, except every now and again it restarts out of nowhere. Then it will go into this loop of restarts with this screen I've captured and then restart again. Today the computer was in sleep mode and I started using it for 10 minutes then bam, black screen of death restart loop. It will show these white boxes at the top of the black screen then restart again. I have a photo but I don't see how to upload here. Any ideas?

    Did this happen on your previous OS? And how did you install Windows 10, was it an upgrade installation from your previous OS?

    I upgraded to Win 10. No this didn't previously happen. When it gets stuck in the loop I unplug the computer and plug it right back in. Then I startup and everything seems fine again for a day or two then the loop out of nowhere.

    It might be worth considering a clean install but there are other options we can look at first depending on your hardware. Can you fill in your system specs so we can see what hardware you have and we can take it from there, also can you let us know what OS you upgraded from.
