    screen goes black on login

    When I turn on my computer it logs into one of my two users, but when it does the screen goes black and nothing happens. It has been like this for 2-3 days now and I don't know what to do.

    Sorry for my bad english.

    There are several potential causes for this kind of problem, of which the most likely is something funny or broken with your graphics driver. Thus, Windows may be working (do you see any disk activity lights even when the screen is black? If so, that means Windows is continuing to do *something* even though you can't see what it is). Check out this Windows 10 tutorial Advanced Startup Options - Boot to in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums and see if you can boot your system using alternate repair or recovery media. If so, you may be able to perform a "safe boot" of your PC and attempt repairs from there. You'll find lots of tutorials and information here on how to proceed. In particular this thread covers most of the discussion and activiites you'll need to undertake to diagnose and fix this kind of problem: Solved Fix for windows 10 booting to a black screen - Windows 10 Forums.

    Glad you were able to address your problem. It can be pretty scary to try to start Windows and wind up with a big, blank screen instead! Good job,
