    windows 10

    I have Acer Revo R3700 (Nvidia ION2). Tried a few times after the release and ended up at the blank screen and no cursor after it got near the end of the Driver installation. After reading some ideas elsewhere I followed their advice and now have a successful upgrade.
    Deleted all the existing windows 10 downloads in the C:\ directory.
    Did a fresh download of the media creation tool and created the media on a flash drive.
    Disconnected the ethernet cable and disabled the wireless.
    Ran setup.exe from the flash drive. Selected do not check for updates.
    Install completed with Standard VGA driver.
    Downloaded Nvidia driver 307.74 and installed that. All okay.
    Windows update has today automatically updated the driver to 341.74 and all is still good.

    win 10

    Hi my experience for what its worth. Initial (unattended) effort resulted in black screen with fixed cursor image - eventually pulled the plug as power off button unresponsive - reverted to Win 7 OK. Multiple re-tries interspersed with driver updates and hot fixes suggested in this thread and elsewhere - all failed with varying error codes.

    Did a clean boot and then reinstall. All OK up to completion of the loading drivers stage, then black screen with fixed cursor again. Left it for an hour or so - no change. This time I managed to get the power button to work by holding in for some time., and on reboot the install continued to apply configuration settings and finally completed OK, Restored normal boot and all OK

    It appears that the update reached a required re-boot, but failed to carry this out automatically and just sat there until it was performed manually.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Hmmm that's worth a try. This will be roughly my eleventh attempt, but I hadn't tried that and it does sorta make sense.

    Edit: Back to the drawing board. I was able to reboot normally but no 10 install continuing; so still on 8.1. Thanks anyways; it sounded good.

    Hey guys, 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

    My PC Win7 to Win10 upgrade has been running relatively well for 2 months, with only minor BSOD issues that always resolved themselves. Today, it boots into a Black Screen after the Win10 Logo and stays there at that Black screen until I shut down using the PC's power button. Have tried to restart 5 times..with the same result. The last attempt, I let it sit for 2 hours, before doing the force shutdown.

    Have tried do a Reset, using the ISO Win10 DVD I made last month. It errors out, with no reason given. Strange thing is that all of the recovery options using this ISO Win10 DVD point towards Windows 7. For instance, right now I'm looking at the PC while typing on this laptop. The PC's ISO DVD says under CHOOSE AN OPTION "Continue. Exit this tool and continue to Windows 7". I thought Windows 7 was tucked away in the Windows.old folder.

    Anyway, I've tried several tutorials, including using the Command Prompt tutorial for resetting Windows10. No luck. Just errors which say this or that can't be found. Is my only option to do a complete wipe of the PC now? The laptop I'm using to compose this message has Windows10 and is running superbly. (This laptop is a 5 year old HP Pavillion and my PC is a 4 year old PC) I wish there was a way to give the equivalent of a blood transfusion from the Laptop to the P.C., LOL.
