When you get a black screen with mouse cursor: Fast Startup – Turn On or Off in Windows 10 – Windows 10 Forums

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/08/05

The Windows 10 installation does not warn you about it but the Fast Startup in Windows 10 will fail with many video cards and display drivers. This happens a lot on older hardware which somehow Microsoft thinks deserves to be auto-upgraded to Windows 10.

Usually you will see this when – after a previous shutdown – you boot and you get a black screen with a mouse cursor.

If you wait long enough, the machine will go to sleep and if you un-sleep it by pressing the spacebar most of the times everything will be fine.

The actual solution that works most of the time is to disable Fast Startup as described in Fast Startup – Turn On or Off in Windows 10 – Windows 10 Forums.

Sometimes there are other solutions which you can see in the below video.
