Windows 10: Windows 10 Black Screen During Install
Windows 10 Black Screen During Install
I was installing windows 10 (8.1 before) on my Dell inspiron 15 7000 series (7537), and it progressed to restarting after the installing drivers step, but after the restart and going through the dell startup screen, everything went black. The HDD light is stuck on and not flickering like it normally does. There is no cursor or anything on the screen, it's just black. I waited for an hour and nothing changed, so I thought maybe it was frozen, so I restarted the computer via hard reset, which took it to a "attempting to recover update" screen, but after a few seconds on that screen it went immediately back to the black screen.
Its been about 30 min since that hard restart and its still black, HDD light still on, and nothing seems to be happening. Does anyone have any solutions to this???
Same problem here man. Sigh I should have backed up.
Problem's been going on for hours
exactly the same (Dell laptop)
after the 2nd time when I rebooted it removed the update and went back to 8.1 and re-downloaded 10 then did the same again the next time I tried but no HDD light permanently on the 2nd time around
I have a sort of update...
I unplugged the laptop from its power supply and did another hard reset. This took me back to the recover installation, an then to a reverting back to your old software screen. After 10 min on that screen it took me back to the windows 8.1 login, and now its loaded everything back to normal on 8.1. I'm debating trying to install it again...
I can't hard reset, its a shared PC.
Its been 4 hours dammit
Well, I decided to try again. The update has been redownloaded and I just started the installation. Hope this round works!
Nightrise, are you sure you can restart your computer? I think it's just going to stay black until you restart it twice somehow.
let us know how it goes, I replied above, it re-downloaded for me but did the same when installing
Yes I can restart (pressing the power button), but every time it reboots it just gets to the black screen+cursor after getting past the OEM loading page.
Restart it twice???
yours appears to be a different problem, we don't have a cursor
Hmm. If it's a laptop try disconnecting the power supply and then restarting. That worked for me. (I think its because it needs to have the power plugged in to continue installing, and if it is unplugged then as a safety feature it goes back to your old windows to prevent data loss. 100% pure guess though.)
Last night my pc work 100%, I Installed telegram for windows and in the midnight the download of the Critical Update was installed in my Desktop, I restart my computer and when turned on after the bios I get a Black Screen, isn't my fist time: see...
I tried updating from 8.1 to 10 from the iso and after a few reboots it just hangs at a black screen, what can i do now? Should i just reboot?
I've set up Windows 10 (64-bit) on an elderly HP tablet PC (tx1410us). Most of the drivers worked out of the box, I just had too look for the chipset drivers (nforce) and the driver for the Nvidia Go 6150 display adapter. This was...
I lose explorer.exe shortly after logon. If I click on Firefox or other app, it comes up and stays up, but rest

I've made three attempts to install Windows 10 on my desktop PC with no success. First with the WindowsTechnicalPreview-x64-EN-US.iso and then with my MSDN en_windows_technical_preview_for_enterprise_x64_dvd_5554079.iso. I'm using a 16 GB USB thumb...
