Black screen after Windows 10 update, is there a driver issue?

    If ever you got it stable again from the driver you are using before it automatically updated, you can disable automatic driver updates on a specific hardware or device.

    Can't say. The feature update is a replacement but this is Windows and it does seem to have a mind of its own. With each feature update windows does replace drivers so fingers crossed.
    Dang, seems like I've got to figure the true culprit of this mess after all if it's not the one I have in mind right now.

    You interrupted the update processes, which you should leave until it is done, can be many hours. Many black screens and timers, twirly dots for that, surely you must know by now.

    If you interrupt it and fiddle about with video drivers, uninstallers etc you may make it even more difficult, trying to fix non existent problems.

    With an Optimus Laptop you need to keep both videos drivers working. Windows updates has done that for 5 years on mine without any problems. The current reliability history has been 9-10 for over a month, in fact better than any time for 5 years.
    This on the supposedly bad boy 1809 update.

    Neither video driver was updated during that 1809 update. Sometimes there is one during one of those major version updates sometimes in between, however they go by almost unnoticed merely a dark screen for few seconds.
    I never purposely interrupted the update myself, I was shutting it down when it asked for an update so I went ahead and update before shutting down. I'm certain that the interruption came when the fast boot was still on and the system shut itself down before the update completely finished. And my laptop is Asus, which I think is pretty famous for its bloatwares. I haven't touched the 1809 yet, only the 1804 and it was the start of this issue.

    Sadly I don't remember the exact version of the NVIDIA driver before the update, but like the previous poster said about no driver update then switching the driver version shouldn't be any different.

    All that aside, from the latest two boots of my laptop I think the issue isn't just the drivers but a certain app might've made a mess. So far no black screens during login, but once when my laptop is completely frozen. I have a habit of opening Chrome once my desktop appears to check my emails and my laptop starts slowing down until it freezes for at least 10 mins before the Chrome loads. If I open anything else, the whole system would either freeze completely or the app I opened would continue to be unresponsive even after Chrome loads completely. I did uninstall and reinstall an older version of NVIDIA driver for this, but I think it'll be the same even if I keep the newest version of the driver. If Chrome truly is the issue instead of the driver, I think I'll consider this issue to be 'solved' in the graphics drivers section and will probably move this topic elsewhere as it's becoming irrelevant to the drivers.

    But still, thank you for all the replies! I appreciate all the help!
