Windows 10: Black screen at login

    Black screen at login

    After I sleep my computer, sometimes the screen is just black with my cursor. I can still do the basic functions like turn brightness down and move my cursor around, but I cannot login or see any graphics. Sleeping again doesn't fix the problem, all I can do is force shut down by holding down the power button (don't worry I have an SSD). Have any of you experienced the same problem or know a fix? I literally can't do anything except force shut down.

    I've had that a few times, like you I have to force shutdown to recover, and like you it's after my computer has been sleeping.
    Recently it has stopped happening and I have no real idea why.

    For a while I just stopped putting my computer to sleep and shut it down instead, later when I decided to try again the problem seemed to be gone, but I do think there was a version upgrade in between.

    I don't think it's going to be too long before the next one.\
    So maybe that will solve it for you.

    See if it is a program that doesnt let you set it in sleep mode.
