    Windows 10 64Bit

    Windows 10 failing to boot into Windows (Black Screen).

    I have a problem with my Windows 10 system. Previously I did the free upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 and everything worked fine for several months, until now, the system will not boot into windows and on boot up I am presented with a black screen and a flashing cursor (see pic).
    I did carry out a recovery usb backup when the Windows 10 was installed, I have tried booting from the usb pen drive to attempt a recovery or fix, but both options have failed, unable to repair and cannot find recovery setup file.
    Please could someone suggest another option that I can use to attempt to get the system running again?

    Download the Windows 10 ISO: Windows 10 ISO Download
    Create a Win 10 install flash drive.
    Boot it then chose Repair you computer on the 2nd install window. Follow links to get to screen that has System Restore on it. Chose that and restore your system to a date before this happened.

    Edit: See here for how to get to System Restore from the booted flash drive: Advanced Startup Options - Boot to in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
