It has been some years since I have been here, but I remember you guys are the BEST at what you do.
So I have been tinkering with this problem for a few days and can usually resolve most issues but this one has me stumped. I am pretty stubborn and would prefer to not let this beat me by doing a system restore.
After the latest 1803 creators update my laptop would boot past the windows logo and the spinning circle, then go to a black screen, it would not show the auto login screen and the only way to proceed is a hard power down (holding the power button for around 5 seconds). This is erratic behavior however and on occasion it boots fine, strangely though if it does it once, resets will result in the same issue. after 3 hard resets I find my self at the repair options, a boot repair did found no problems.
So far I have discovered that if I boot to safe mode and do a restart, at least in the 4 or 5 times I have tried, it will boot in the normal manner to my desktop, but this is somewhat arduous booting to safe mode just to restart and reboot. I have tried the few fixes I have read such as disabling fast boot to no avail. I have also tried updating display drivers and uninstalling HID pointer devices as another website suggested.
