Found this forum thru google, read around a lot everyone seems very helpful.
Earlier today I was watching something in VLC and alt tabbed and noticed everything but VLC was black screen, froze up my explorer and I had to restart with power button. After it booted back up and I signed in the screen is just black with a cursor. After googling there were many variations of this happening, mostly after the creator's updates but that never happened to me. I read many articles and watched videos with solutions but nothing has helped me so far. Also booting in safe mode does the same thing ugh. What can I do? anything? Need to get the data off the drive before a clean wipe and reinstall of windows 10.
also i've tried task manager running explorer.exe, checking for video card updates and uninstalling my video card then reboot.
If I hit shift 5 times and get the sticky keys prompt up I can click the link and get to the control panel/explorer but it usually goes Not Responding pretty quickly and some control panel items don't even open. Some people have just said to leave the desktop open and it will show up eventually so thats where i'm at now lol what to do!!
