    Windows 10 boots to black screen


    I recently applied updates to my Windows 10 environment. The next time I booted, it would briefly show the Windows logo and then go to black screen. I could still login to safe mode no problems.
    After a week of trying different things and online advice, I stripped all the disks out of my PC, add a new SSD and reinstalled windows.

    The install went fine, it then informed my of available updates. Perform the updates, rebooted and have exactly the same issue. I am current running my PC with a single drive, network connection, keyboard, mouse and monitor. It has no other devices attached. The drive is brand new and the only thing on it is Windows 10.

    Any ideas? All help appreciated.

    I have a similar problem with the Windows Insider versions. When I get a new update version, it boots up to a black desktop. Rebooting a couple of times seems to fix it. When it boots up to a black desktop, I can use the CTRL/ALT/DEL and get a screen with the Task Manager which all works. Also on the screen in the lower right is an icon to restart. Doing that multipolel times and finally it will boot up to the desktop. In my case the problem is with the Insider installation as I have a dual boot with my "production" Win 10 and its OK.

    Uninstall graphic card driver and install latest version of the drive from graphic card manufacturer website.

    I do not have a graphics card. I am using the onboard graphics on my motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z97-D3H. It has not got as far as login, at this stage so I haven't go to installing drivers.

    1) The computer has iGPU.

    Intel Coreā„¢ i7-4790 Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.00 GHz) Product Specifications

    2) Had you tried other ports and used the iGPU?

    3) Update the specs in the "My Computer" section:

    It seems to be fixed. I was advised on another forum to download the latest ISO for windows, rather than use my installation disks, It was suggested this would eliminate any of the earlier issues with installation media. So followed the advice and the new install worked without an issue.

    In the opening post windows had been reinstalled.
    What method had been used?
    a) backup image
    b) clean install?
    c) other?

    First of all, you should check Check all your video connections. I had such a problem. My PC has not received the signal from my display. The problem can be with your video drivers. I have found some other ways to fix this problem here I think you should try all of these methods.

    I did a clean install, without success, but eventually took it to a computer store, they didn't have an issue. Tried it again at home and it was a problem. Turns out issue was monitor, replaced monitor and no more problems.
