    BSOD upon trying to log in, just upgraded


    So, as the title suggests, I have just upgraded my Desktop PC to Windows 10 as I was under the impression that the Free Upgrade would expire soon (I have since learned it expires June of next year, GG me).

    I completed the upgrade 5 days ago, took about an hour and forty minutes to fully upgrade. It takes me to the log in screen and I type in the password and It just sort of...sits there. Any time I type in the password or click on anything other than the options on the login screen and the screen fades into white as it becomes unresponsive, then few seconds afterwords the screen turns black and then after another 3-4 seconds, my PC reboots as if the power has been turned off.

    I don't really know much of the Specs of my PC, as that's never really mattered to me before. I know the Model is an HP Pavilion p6000 and I have own it since 2010. I'm not sure if my PC is too old to handle Win 10
    I know before the upgrade I had 280 Gigs of memory left out of 450, so it shouldn't be a memory issue.

    I tried submitting this problem to r/Windows10 and they suggested I try and boot the computer in Safe Mode...I honestly didn't know what Safe Mode was so I was lead here, to the Forum. I've tried obtaining Safe mode by turning it on/off twice in a row to trigger the auto repair and it took me to thing screen.

    I tried clicking on the "US" option...and my mouse wouldn't show up.

    So, the point is, for whatever reason I can't log in to my PC now. I'm sorry if this is a long winded post but i'm honestly at the end of my rope and I'm using my laptop to type this. I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me.

    Hi GGGrahamcracker,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    Just to note, your description is mainly about system freezes.

    Could you give me a stopcode of the BSOD?
    When you get 3 BSOD crashes straight, you should get the troubleshooting menu from where you can enter safe mode.

    More info about safe mode: Safe Mode - Start Windows 10 in - Windows 10 Forums

    No, but that's the thing. The screen lags for a good while after I try to log in and then it becomes unresponsive and then it just turns black, no "stopcode" or anything like that, just my cursor on the screen until after about 5 seconds, the PC reboots without any trouble shoot options. I've tried to log in about 20 times in the past 3 days and it does it every time without fail.

    I understand you get no BSOD?

    Well, I assumed the BSOD not only stood for Blue Screen, but also Black Screen of Death...Am I wrong? If I'm submitting to the wrong section of the site, then I'm sorry

    In this section it is Bluescreen, not blackscreen

    I have notified the moderators, your thread should be moved soon to the right part of the forum.
