Windows 10: Black screen (no mouse) after boot workaround

    Black screen (no mouse) after boot workaround

    This worked for my post boot black screen (no cursor) issue. It's a workaround rather than a fix but I think we're dependant on Intel releasing an upgraded driver to fix the issue properly.
    My Asus X53E laptop is using the i7 2670QM CPU with integrated Intel Graphics HD 3000 CPU.
    After boot up allow 30 seconds or so for the machine to boot to login screen (although the screen will appear blank). When disk activity lessens put the machine to sleep (on my laptop: Fn + F1). Once machine power led goes off, switch the machine back on. It should wake up with the display on.

    Hey, I don't know if this will fix your issue but it fixed mine. Check your BIOS, and update it! My issue was not a driver issue but actually a BIOS issue all along. I spent ages trying to replace the drivers when that was not the problem. As it turns out, my BIOS version was dated at 2011, checking the intel website for a BIOS update for my laptop and installing it solved this issue. Check your BIOS. I hope this helps. :P
