I've been having this problem for some time: it's either 'cause I have too many startup apps or I don't turn on my laptop quickly after connecting it to the AC mains. I keep getting random black screens with cursor during bootup. & I have to coldboot it to get Windows 10 to load properly. Again, I've disabled most startup apps like Rainmeter, Objectdock 2 Plus, Fences (3?!), MuralPix Manager, Executor.dk, Atomic Alarm Clock. It shouldn't happen anymore, but if it does crop up I'll let you know —I thought it was happening 'cause of Stardock WindowBlinds' Accent Color Picker, but even with that disabled it's happened again after many months. My main worry here is if it shows the blank screen during an Windows update installation. The second reason is when I keep the computer off yet plugged in to the mains —I'm guessing a power surge with the battery is what 'causes it. Help please ! This is a Dell budget laptop (with Intel Celeron 2x1.5Ghz, 8GB DDR3 RAM (Kingston), 500GB Toshiba HDD.) I purchased around a year ago —used to freeze but the store fixed it by replacing the Wi-Fi adapter & switching from Windows 8.1 to 10.
