    Black Screen After Latest Update

    I started the update to my Win10 Pro last night. The screen said it will take a long time (my words), so I went to bed expecting the latest to be fully installed and ready to go this morning. However, I now have a black screen. Occasionally, I will see my mouse cursor, and sometimes a message saying my monitor is going to sleep - nothing else. I elected to not do a "hard" power off for fear of messing it up even more.

    I don't recall the version number of the upgrade, but I believe I was running 1803 at the time. Where to from here?

    It is due to a GPU driver issue. See post 6. Black Screen After Windows 10 Logon (cursor visibile)

    All is well now. It wasn't a GPU driver issue; I didn't have to restor from my backup; I didn't have to do a clean Win install. I simply shut it down and started it up again. Took a little longer to boot, but lookes like every thing came back as before... and shows I'm at ver 1903!

    Thanks for all of your input!
