Fix a Black Screen After Updating Windows 10

graphics driver update or a physical connection between the display and video adapter. At times, it can just happen out of the blue. Whatever the case maybe, when Windows 10 gives you a black screen and no error message, the best way to get over this issue is a good troubleshooting. 

According to Microsoft’s support document, if your Windows 10 PC reboots to a black screen, just press Ctrl+Alt+Del on your keyboard. The basic Ctrl+Alt+Del screen will appear. Click the power button at the bottom right corner of the screen and select Restart to restart your PC. We are glad to know that these traditional control keys are helpful to us in such crisis, apart from just popping up the task manager on the screen.

If the Problem Persists and You were Unable to Fix the Black Screen After the Windows 10 Update, Follow the Below Mentioned Solutions.

Step 1 : Press the Windows+Ctrl+Shift+B Hotkey altogether to restart your PC’s graphics driver. This may fix the existing problem by refreshing the connection with the monitor.

Step 2 : Non-essential devices connected to your systems may cause black screen. Disconnect all the peripherals such as printers, USB drivers, removable drives etc from your computer. After this, restart your computer one more time and if everything works perfectly then you have a problem with one of your peripherals.

Step 3 : The other solution to fix the black screen with cursor on Windows 10 is to completely shut down your PC. Disconnect everything from your computer even the power cord. Put back the power cord and connect the needed devices(mouse, keyboard). Power on the computer.

Step 4 : If you’re having a black screen problem on your PC, the issue might be occurring due to the Project Mode. Users believe this takes place when you have both dedicated and integrated graphics. Windows 10 assumes you have two displays and sends video signal to the other display even if you are using only one display. A strange glitch though. 

For This You Can Go Through Few Steps Given Below:

1. Start your PC and wait until the mouse cursor appears.
2. Press the Spacebar and enter your password blindly and press enter, it might take a few tries. If you have no secure password then just move to another step.
3. Press Windows+P shortcut and down arrow. Now press enter. Keep repeating this process until resolved.

Step 5 : Other way to fix your black screen after the Windows 10 update is to remove the Software or Programs which have been recently installed. If you have programs installed by different companies before or after the Windows 10 update, the crashes caused by the applications can result in black screen. So better to remove the unnecessary and seldom used programs and restart the system.

Step 6 : The last and good old method is to forcibly shut down your PC. Yes, you can lose all the work by doing this, but often this is your only option. Press and hold your PC’s power button until it turns off. Wait for a while and turn it on by pressing the power button again.

There can be a lot of reasons for this error, after all it’s a software. But Microsoft’s latest update giving rise to such an issue might not look fair.

Black screen might seem like a death of your system but all’s good when you can fix it with one of these solutions. I hope this might help you and you’ll be all set to use your system.
