Windows 10: Black screen every Thursday, PC quit sleeping this past week.
Please post results of two powercfg commands.
If you have latest driver and you think it was an update, roll driver back.
Again I will mention a system restore will take you back to a known working environment. Yes new programs will have to be installed, there simply can't be many. Please back up data.
My root hub may be old USB. The most speed I've ever gotten out of it has been around 750k. I have a USB 2 4 port hub plugged into it, but...
This is interesting. I turned off the sleep function - set it to never. Then when it updated last night ( it said it was about to, anyway - I set it to 4 AM ), it didn't become unresponsive like the other times. It came right on this morning, when I moved the mouse. I had to restart a couple of programs, as usual when it does update, but it didn't do the unresponsive black screen thing.
So if I can figure out now, what's keeping it from sleeping, I can solve this. When I have some time later, I'm gonna unplug all the USB stuff and force sleep. That should tell me if it's internal USB or peripheral.
Well I unplugged everything USB and it still wouldn't sleep. But I suppose if the drivers are doing it, and there are no later drivers than what I have ( the internal USB drivers latest was 2006 by Microsoft ), and they arent making anymore, then we're hosed here.

Being it was sleeping ok up until that update a few weeks ago, I have to think they did something that stopped it, though.
Personally I'm always leery of third parties providing drivers. That said I'm sure there are very good vendors out there.
First I would run this utility by Intel and see what it reports.
Download Intel(R) Chipset Device Software (INF Update Utility)
There is no harm in trying driver but ensure you have a restore point you can fall back to and you may even want to take an Image. Yes I'm paranoid, I like to have many escape routes. When you download driver you should also run AV scan on file.
I just tried it and it failed to install - unknown error.
Then there is a compatibility issue.
Could you run Intel's tool and see if there is an update listed by it.

Ok, here we go:
Computer has been working on win 10 for several months. Lately had problems with login screen. We have never used a password before.
Now I cant do anything because it demands a password which I do not know.
Incidentally I now see two users...
Hello, I upgraded my 4th computer that was pretty old to Windows 10 today. It booted in fine after install, but it looked as if I was in a sort of safe mode, as mu graphics display driver was apparently not good. Windows told me it was going to...
Sorry if the subject line is a bit vague but I couldn't think of a better way of putting it.
I put my laptop into Sleep mode last night (running windows 10) and when I woke it this morning all of the files I'd worked on/created/downloaded...
Following the last updates I can no longer get my computer to wake up without shutting it off and restarting it. Why?
Thank you so much you folks are so helpful to a Nana that knows so little about computers.
So my computer goes to sleep every 10 minutes and I have to restart it , which takes a long time because my laptop is a low end com. Anyone know how to fix the black screen when I come back ? I tried to move my mouse no cursor no nothing just the...
