Windows 10: Windows 10 booting - blank screen instead of login screen

    Windows 10 booting - blank screen instead of login screen

    HI all,

    I have a strange windows issue.

    When I boot up the PC it seems to boot up normally, but when the windows login wallpaper is meant to show. I just get a black screen. No flashing cursor.

    I am also unable to:
    RDP - I am prompted to login but after entering creds, the box just returns to the RDP hostname entry screen.
    UNC to C$ - When I try to connect to \\host\c$ I am prompted with creds prompt but get access denied when entering valid creds

    Strange thing is, I have a filezilla ftp server running on the PC and I am actually able to connect and browse the shared folders.

    I can get into Windows recovery , startup fix fails saying unable to repair. But since Filezilla starts, it may not see it as a start up issue ?

    I tried restoring from a previous checkpoint which succeeded but same blank screen error occurs.

    Where I am at now is I run sfc /scannow /offbootdir=f:\ /offwindir=f:\windows
    This runs for some time and fails.
    I have attached the CBS.log but cannot see any SR entries like "Failed to internally open package. [HRESULT = 0x800f0805 - CBS_E_INVALID_PACKAGE]"

    One thing that did happen is that one morning I went to power the PC on, then I usually RDP to it from downstairs. I wasnt able to. So I went to check on it. The fan was revving very loud to I viewed the monitor and it seems like it was stuck in a shutting down mode. So, I didnt notice if that morning when I went to switch it on, if it was already on and I pressed the power button which initiated a shutdown, which failed. I didnt read the error message though. Typical

    Going to start a chddsk /f now as maybe it was a power surge and has damaged sectors ? I have managed to grab the windows even logs so I am going to review those.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I was meant to say:
    Where I am at now is I run sfc /scannow /offbootdir=f:\ /offwindir=f:\windows
    This runs for some time and fails.
    I have attached the CBS.log but cannot see any SR entries. I do see "Failed to internally open package. [HRESULT = 0x800f0805 - CBS_E_INVALID_PACKAGE]"

    chkdsk /r came back clean

    I think I have made some progress with with identifying the problem but not sure of the cause or solution as yet

    I have these 2 events spamming app event log (I copied the evtx logs to my laptop to view)

    Still googling this right now. Possible bad sectors ? Even though chkdsk said it was fine

Open the file again. This situation might be a temporary problem that corrects itself when the program runs again.2. If the file still cannot be accessed and    - It is on the network, your network administrator should verify that there is not a problem with the network and that the server can be contacted.    - It is on a removable disk, for example, a floppy disk or CD-ROM, verify that the disk is fully inserted into the computer.3. Check and repair the file system by running CHKDSK. To run CHKDSK, click Start, click Run, type CMD, and then click OK. At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /F, and then press ENTER.4. If the problem persists, restore the file from a backup copy.5. Determine whether other files on the same disk can be opened. If not, the disk might be damaged. If it is a hard disk, contact your administrator or computer hardware vendor for further assistance.
