    I had the same issue. After reading through this thread I realized I was having the same multi-display problem. W10 detects 2 displays when I just have 1. Win+P wasn't working for me, and I was kinda mashing buttons around and somehow turned on text-to-speech which allowed me to figure it out. Win+P menu in W10 is now vertical and has four options. PC screen only, duplicate, extend, and second screen only. So I had to press Win+P, down, down, down, then enter. Bam, login screen. Signed in, everything working fine now. I'm not sure I want to leave it at that though... now looking for a way to make windows think this is my only display.

    Same issue with Alienware x51, just one monitor.

    I feel like it is in fact an issue with conflicting video drivers since I've had a few issues with that recently. Reset has been tried a couple times and keeps stopping at the black screen.

    Hello everyone, I've been lurking this thread today because I was having the same issue. I finally got my pc up and running with Windows 10 and wanted to let you all know how I did it.

    I booted my computer into bios by mashing f8 after post. My bios had a section for graphics settings I clicked that option then turned support for multi monitor off. Saved the changes and exited my bios.

    Since this is my first post if you have any questions I'll try and get them answered. I'm running a Asus g20
    How do you mashup the f8 button???
    Nothing is working for me.

    All brands have different buttons that get you into the BIOS. For Dell it's F2 I believe. Depends on what you have.

    Alienware x51 user reporting in.

    I'm pretty pissed about this right now. I've had the issue for about 12 hours now. Been looking everywhere for a solution. It was fine this morning, installed up to 15% then went to a black screen for over an hour. Nothing happened so I rebooted my computer. The Alienware boot screen showed up just fine. After it loaded past that is when I got the dimly litted black screen with my mouse cursor again.

    Easy fix

    So I have alienware x51. At black screen I unplugged my dvi monitor and connected via HDMI and it showed up. Haven't tried to go back to dvi yet

    Also should I be able to go into safe mode in BIOS, cause mine doesn't show up, been trying for 5 hours?

    Update. After changing to HDMI I plugged dvi connection in and it seemed to think it was a second screen. In display settings I hit make this primary screen and now I seem to be back in business.

    Getting into the bios will only help, I think, if your bios allows you to disable the monitor that it's confusing for your primary. If your bios doesn't support that in one way or another it's not going to help.

    One thing you can try is to get the narrator to turn on from the black screen. Win+Enter is the hot key for it. With this on I was able to navigate the "project" menu, Win+P, to select "second screen only" and get the login screen into view.
