    Display Is Out

    I'm assuming I got an update overnight for Windows 10 Insider, because today everything went to hell.

    I have an HP 620 laptop, but the screen is broken. So I have an Acer external monitor attached to it, never had a problem before. At a certain point in boot, the external monitor will kick on and I'm good.

    Today, nothing. The laptop is just sitting there. I know it's alive because I'm the bottom right corner, I still see my mouse, but it's currently on a black background, I don't see a toolbar at the bottom. Leading me to believe I'm not at the desktop, but rather some type of setup for whatever update I received.

    Does anyone know of anything I could do to rectify this? If I didn't explain correctly, or if you need more info, don't hesitate to let me know.

    Do you still have this problem or have a few restarts sorted it out?
