    My screen is Black


    So I have a problem...
    1) my laptop runs windows 10 and has a broken screen so it's been running through HDMI too my TV
    2) it sometimes just freezes for no reason and I can't do nothing but restart
    3) Now when I restart it restarts to a blank login screen and the mouse comes us. Wish I could post a pic but I can't.

    Hi Cashkiwi. Welcome to the TenForums @Cashkiwi

    When it boots to the Black screen does anything happen if you press Windows Key + P ?

    Can you emulate signing in, that is press space bar, enter password, press enter.

    I can only do the first option. I tried it and it does the same thing.
    a loading circle. It's done the same thing twice now. After working again yesterday afternoon and this morning. It took around 20mins of waiting for the login screen to come up. This was after doing the windows update two days ago.

    Do do you think I should just hit the windows recovery up when I get a chance too?

    Windows has probably updated graphic driver and switched your primary display back to laptop's screen.

    Re-apply settings and also disable laptop's screen in device manager.

    You can also try to pull out and then plug in HDMI cable back, when it happens again.

    My recommendation would be to get your data off device, which may mean removing drive from laptop. Sounds like things are getting worse.

    Hard to say whether your device is failing on hardware or software or a combination. If you can get back in type reliability history in Cortana, click the app and see what additional information Windows may be providing.
