Fast Boot Causes Black Screen After Loading Desktop?

Sep 15, 2014

For a few days I have been having some problems with my computer. Whenever I shutdown properly and then start again, the Desktop loads fine and after a few seconds of coming to the desktop. I see a black screen in front of me, I try to press num lock on and off to see if the system froze, it indeed froze. I disabled fastboot, after that even if I start after shutdown, it boots fine.

If I restart, it boots fine. Not sure why as my system should be fully compatible with fast boot. Here is my system specs, everything is updated as of posting:

MSI Z87 - G43 Gaming Motherboard with latest BIOS
Sapphire TriX R9 290 OC
Samsung 250GB 840 EVO
8GB RAM

Cannot Boot To Desktop / Black Screen With Mouse

Nov 24, 2013

It seems Windows 8.1 doesn't like my old graphic card drivers like Windows 8 did. In many cases when turn on my machine it boots to desktop but it doesn't show it - it just shows my mouse cursor and pure black background. When i click the power button tho, the desktop pops up for a second then the shutting down screen appears. After few reboots i finally managed to get to the desktop and use my computer (chances are 1:5 reboots lol).

I followed some tutorials i found on the internetz , explaining how sometimes ATI and NET framework 3.5 doesn't work together - this is not the case 'cause i tried following this tutorial to uninstall , clean and reinstall the latest drivers available for my crappy videocard + NET framework. Didn't worked...

I noticed something interesting while booting to Windows. IF there will be black screen with cursor - the boot time takes 1-2 seconds, IF everything will be alright - the boot process will take about 25 seconds. (just thought i should tell you this as well)

And finally here's my configuration:
Pentium 4 , 3.2GHz
ATI Radeon X550
2GB DDR2 RAM

Dell Latitude 100l With Windows 8.1 - Loading Files And Get Black Screen

Oct 22, 2013

I have an old Dell Latitude 100l laptop, with XP installed. I use it for University work. Now I've was able to download from Uni a copy of Windows 8.1, as an ISO image onto a DVD disc.

When i try and boot to the disc, it says "loading files"........and after a while i just get a black screen.

Is this because I cannot load Windows 8.1 onto my Dell laptop?

[URL] .... This is the spec of my laptop.

Black Screen During Boot?

Dec 15, 2013

I run Windows 8.1 and I have a problem that surfaced recently. When booting it shows the blue windows logo, showing that it's booting obviously, but after a few seconds it goes to a completely black screen that lasts for anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes before it goes to the lock screen. My system specs are pretty humble I admit, you can look at my specs, but it was never an issue as Windows 8 and 8.1 used to boot completely within 30 seconds max. I suspect it might be a problem with disk space as I have only a 250 GB hard drive with 4 GB free space.

I used to have two hard drives; a 1 TB and a 500 GB. Due to too many power failures in this pathetic country called South Africa, both of my hard drives died completely from too many write and read errors and corrupted partitions. I salvaged the 250 GB hard drive from an old PC of my aunt's as I could not and can still not afford a new hard drive. Having to wait 5 - 10 minutes to use my computer is just plain frustrating to say the least. I have already cleaned all of the junk and useless files on the hard drive, what's left on it is all stuff I can't afford to lose or delete.

Windows Boot Into Black Screen?

May 16, 2013

I'm having WIndows 8 Pro N, I encountered some issue here that Windows will boot into black screen quite sometime.

The moment when I tried to perform a restart or switch on my laptop, I could see the Windows 8 logo and then the screen just turned black. CTRL ALT DEL doesn't work and what I have to do is perform forced shut down.

After I switched it on again, everything just worked fine. The frequency of having the problem is 50%.

Black Flickering Screen Upon Boot

Oct 13, 2013

Today I uninstalled MS Office 2010. After doing this it informed me I had to restart Windows 8 for all changes to take affect which I did. Ever since I have not been able to get into Windows 8.

Essentially I turn on the PC, I see the HP logo, and then Windows 8 goes in an endless black flickering screen loop. I have closed the laptop and pulled the battery to see if that was the issue, but it was not. Considering it was running normally before hardware wise I believe something went wrong with Win 8.

I lack a Win 8 disc and lack a USB DVD drive regardless (laptop does not have an internal drive) and reinstalling Windows is out of the question as I have data I need on it.

Black Screen In Boot For Long Time?

Jan 15, 2014

When I boot or reboot my PC, it is a slow process, the time with the blue window and the spinning circle is only about 5 seconds, but then there is a pause of 30-35 seconds where absolutely nothing is going on. Black screen, no activity at the SSD or at the net. After this my USB mouse and keyboards wake up, and only a few seconds later my PC is running normally.

I have allways (in windows 8) had that black screen, but only for a few seconds. After Windows 8.1 this "dead screen" just getting longer and longer. I have had it for some times, but I used to use Intel Rapid Start, so I did not care. Now I got som faster ram, and Intel Rapid Start don't work with this ram, so now I have to boot every time, and now I'm not so happy with this long pause in boot.

What is Windows 8 doing in this time? How to eliminate it (or just get it reduced)?

I never had this black screen under windows 7.

Windows 8 Won't Boot Up / Black Screen With Cursor

Aug 4, 2014

My laptop has been acting really weird the last couple of weeks. It would crash randomly, and sometimes when I picked it up to put it somewhere else, it crashed too.

Now, I thought this was a problem with Windows 8.1, because it didn't behave like this before with normal Windows 8. So I Refreshed my laptop, and after that it worked again, without crashing.

I left it in sleep mode while I got some sleep too, and when I booted it up this morning, it crashed again.

After that the whole laptop wouldn't boot up, and now the only thing that shows is a cursor on a black screen, and it seems to be stuck in sleep mode, because I can't even turn it off completely manually. So I can't access the BIOS or make it boot up in Safe Mode.What the hell should I do?

Specs:

Toshiba Sattelite L50-A-15U

Windows 8 64-bit

Intel i7 4th generation processor with Intel HD4600 graphics card

nVidia GeForce GT740M graphics card

2x 4 GB DDR3L RAM

Slow Boot Black Screen After Windows Logo

Mar 28, 2014

When booting, my windows 8.1 is slow to do load. After windows logo, it goes to a black screen for around 10 secs, then it finally logs into the Start menu. I know this is not normal because I have seen the system boot faster in the past, but I don't know why its doing it now.

I have done a fresh install of windows 8 and update to 8.1. I made to to have Fast Boot enabled.

I have haswell, so I made to update to the latest graphics drivers by Intel.

On a second note: I am triple booting: osx/linux/win with Chamelon boot loader. However, I doubt its an issue with triple boot because the black screen occurs AFTER windows logo, meaning windows has successfully loaded.

PC Suddenly Takes Forever To Boot Up - A Black Screen Hangs?

Aug 2, 2013

Recently my pc has taken forever to boot up. A black screen hangs there for about 5-9 minutes before opening up in Windows 8.

I thought a virus was there so did a full scan using Kaspersky Internet Security 2013, nothing found.

I haven't d/l'd any new software recently.

I have tried to upload music to my micro SD card from my iphone, but the icon in My Computer is not showing, not in Device manager either.

Don't know if they are related but the problem started just after the above incident.

Debugging :: Screen Stays Black After Boot Logo Disappearing?

Mar 8, 2014

There's this bugcheck that forces me to refresh install my Windows 8 installation. Everything was normal until I restarted my system and it takes longer time to boot. The screen stays black after boot logo disappearing, until I saw a BSOD.

Attached below is last and the only dump file generated while BSOD occured. I need to know what's the real cause so I can prevent it in the futures (this is like my third time to refresh install in less than a year...)

Note that I generated this diagnostic after refresh install so it might be irrelevant to crash dump attached...

Black Screen After BIOS - Laptop Stays That Way And Doesn't Boot

Nov 16, 2013

I have a samsung laptop. I turn it on and I can see the bios screen. After that, the screen just goes black and stays that way and doesn't boot. I am able to get into BIOS and I can see all bootable options. I am not able to get into recovery settings or the advanced boot menu.

I burned my Windows 8 iso to my flash drive and plugged it into the computer. I tried automatic repair with it and that didn't fix it. I tried doing a system restore, but it failed saying "System Restore failed while copying the registry from the restore point. The registry in the restore point was damaged and could not be restored." The computer was working during that restore point that. I will try another one though.

It appears that something is corrupt within Windows, but I'm not sure exactly what. I can issue the command in command line, since I can boot to my flash drive, but I'm not sure what files I need to fix or if I'm correct.

8.1 Update - Won't Boot Past BIOS / All Recovery Media Black Screen With Mouse

Jun 2, 2014

I tried updating to Windows 8.1 Update 1 and in didn't go through properly (it hard froze and crashed) and now won't boot past the BIOS. I cannot get into Windows and I cannot get into the Recovery Menu.

I tried recovery USB's and any I create either from a 3rd party or Windows itself results in loading to a black screen with a mouse cursor. Only one worked, Acronis (probably because its Linux) and it showed all the drives ruling out a hardware issue but sadly it cannot repair Windows.

So it seems I might be a victim of the black screen issue some had when moving to Update 1.... BUT the difference is I cannot boot into the recovery menu at all and any recovery media boots to a black screen.

How to get out of this screen and actually boot into anything which will allow me to try to fix the MBR or go back to a restore point.

I thought the point of recovery software was that it loads no matter how corrupted Windows is... obviously not! Something is stopping all of them booting properly.

Deleted Fast Boot Options?

Sep 15, 2014

I accidentally deleted my Fast Boot boot options and when I enable it my laptop restarts and shows the BIOS, without booting into my system(s). However, when I enable CSM boot it gives me option of booting into my systems. I want to restore my Fast Boot options so my laptop boots up faster and basically because my laptop is made for Fast Boot.

Maintenance :: Fast Boot No Effect?

Sep 27, 2013

I have Asus Maximus V formula z77 with latest EUFI firmware, and EVGA GTX 680 classified with EUFI firmware. Bios is set to fast boot etc, and it is enabled in windows, but I'm seeing no difference from before. I was using boot racer and seeing 11-14 second windows load times with another 10-15 til desktop. Averaging around 28 second boot speeds, whether from a fast boot shut down or a restart. My OS drive is a Samsung 840 EVO 250GB.

My windows 7 booted faster on an OCZ Vertex 4 128GB.

Virtualization :: XP On VM On SSD - Fast Boot Less Than 2 Secs

Aug 1, 2014

I've now optimized my remaining Windows XP system --removed all the junk and duplicate programs which run on later versions of Windows so I've got a nice small tidy XP system -- basically Scanner (old canon photo scanner N1240), some VINYL editing and cutting software, OCR software, Minidisc software (still great for portable RECORDING !!) and an HP plotter and one or two odd programs. I don't need Photoshop or office any more in the XP system nor Ms Office, and I don't bother with the Internet on it either so no security problems there.

I've kept connectivity for printing (Epson 1400 printer) - the whole OS is 12 GB and it boots up in about 2 Secs (a VM running from a Linux host) --I've allocated it 1 GB - I'm sure I could run it in 768 MB too.

On my 8GB laptop it runs fine concurrently with a Windows 8.1 VM (allocated 4GB RAM for that) both on a Linux Host.

Windows To Go - No Fast Boot Option?

Jun 18, 2014

Windows to go doesn't seem to have a Fast boot option -- Not a real issue since I use an SSD for this but just curious. I suppose if Windows to Go is being used on different computers and the idea is to use the external device totally then it obviously doesn't make sense to store a file on the Host PC's HDD.

Anyway two screenshots -- you can see the Windows to Go doesn't have a fast boot option. Ist screenshot is from Windows to Go -- both running Windows 8.1 enterprise update 1 x-64 on REAL (not Virtual) Machines.

I am only able to login using the Standard Account and unable to create any more admin accounts or make any changes, I am even unable to perform the Gateway Recovery as its asking for the Administrator Password.

Windows 8.1 Fast Start Up (hybrid Boot)

Sep 17, 2014

I recently installed windows 8.1 and there is a problem with the windows Fast Start up (hybrid boot) feature as sometimes it works and windows starts very fast and sometimes it doesn't starts fast but just take sometime to start as if I started from a cold boot. I tried everything from inside the windows to solve this problem but nothing worked

I read in some threads that this fast boot technology works by saving the system into a hibernation file in the system drive when you shutdown the PC and at boot Hybrid boot well just use this hibernation file to start up faster by loading some system related files from it.

So I thinks that sometimes it loads the information from the hibernation file to load the system fast and sometimes it doesn't load anything from the hibernation file and load as if it was starting on a cold boot.

Win 8.1 Boot To Desktop And Bypass Welcome Screen

Jun 14, 2013

I'm waiting to see if this old hardy perennial will work on the new Windows 8.1 when booting directly to the desktop.

You can currently bypass the Windows welcome screen at boot time quite simply (although on Win 8 it simply takes you immediately to the start screen).

Simply do this to sign in automatically at startup:

Log On User Account Automatically at Windows 8 Startup

Reboot machine -- and you will be taken straight to the start screen.

Boot Direct to Desktop. I found this in a Windows 8 book in the Start Screen Store. If you want to boot directly into the desktop without passing thru the Start Screen

-Go to the start screen & type in schedule to search for Schedule Task in Settings.
-Click on Task Scheduler Library in the left pane, and select Create Task in right pane.
-Name your task something like Boot to desktop.
-Now select the Triggers tab, choose New, and use the drop-down box to select starting the task At log on.
-Click OK and go to the Actions tab, choose New, and enter explorer for the Program/Script value.
-Press OK, save the task, and restart to test it out.

Browsers/Mail :: Bing Not Loading From Desktop

Mar 12, 2014

From the desktop I click on the IE in the taskbar box and it loads and loads then says "this page can NOT be displayed" I then rebooted, and from the start screen I click on the e tile for IE and Bing comes up perfect with bookmarks, and all the frills. I then closed it and tried to get back to Bing by clicking on the IE box in taskbar on the desktop and nothing "this page can NOT be displayed" again. I then went to the start screen clicked on the Bing tile and it loads, but no bookmarks or frills. I then came to this site from there. The screenshot will NOT work in the "this page cannot be displayed" page. Google works fine.

I installed the MS updates yesterday, that's all I have done to this computer. It WILL take a screenshot of the desktop, and it WILL take a screenshot when I am in Google.

Windows 8.1 Beta - Initial Loading Of Desktop Invokes 8 Instances Of Notepad

Aug 30, 2013

I reformatted my Windows 8 partition this week and reinstalled Windows 8 and then Windows 8.1 beta due to a no sound and unexpected shutdown issue I had been having. All is well now with the new install, I have sound and it is no longer shutting down randomly. However, when the desktop view is first accessed after boot (whether from the desktop tile or by starting "control panel") I get 8 separate instances of Notepad that pop up, each with a dialog box containing a little yellow triangle with an exclamation mark and proclaiming "Access denied".

All instances of Notepad are blank, and once I dismiss the 8 dialog boxes and close the 8 Notepad windows, I can freely go back and forth between the metro and desktop interfaces without them launching again.

Full disclosure, during the reinstall of Windows 8, the machine still experienced unexpected shutdowns (3 or 4 times) during the early stages of getting updates. Once a certain point was passed in the update process, it has been rock solid, and has run continuously for the past 48 hours. The unexpected shutdowns could have certainly introduced some problems as above, but I don't know where to look.

This is a homebuilt AMD quadcore desktop dual booting Windows 7. No problems whatsoever on the Win 7 side.
