Black Screen during Install

Postby Hoolean » July 29th, 2015, 8:34 pm

During the install process of Windows 10 - having downloaded the media creation tool from the Microsoft website - after rebooting (as to continue the installation process) there is only a backlit black screen. This is the second time I have attempted installation and the second time I have encountered the problem.

Anybody got any ideas as to why this may be happening? Pressing/touching the various buttons and the screen has no affect, although I had previously disabled the lock button so it is not certain whether this may have any effect on the result.

Currently installing win10 aswell (pro over pro), and I have the same problem, black (lit) screen after the first (second ?) reboot. When touching the screen there's a small cross following the area touched. Any solution ? :/

Mines crashed when the installation was booting for the first time and the screen got corrupted. Had to hold in the power .

It's booted me back to Windows 8.

Oh and my pc I just upgraded to Windows 10 won't go to sleep now.

Thanks for nothing Microsoft

Today's attempt went smooth until after the driver installation...

The screen glitched like mad, I had to force a reboot... And now its restoring W8.1...

Gonna try once more.

EDIT : same glitch after installing the drivers, calling it a day, I'll try again in a month or so.

I had this too, leave it and then a while after, the screen will have different colours of lines following that and eventually it'll stop and the screen will go black and boots into win 10 (I had to press the power button once to bring the screen to life)
