Windows 8.1 Black Screen with Cursor After Login

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I've been searching the forums for hours now, but there has been no avail for my problem.
So, I have Windows 8.1 and have had it for 2 years and I haven't encountered any problem until now.
My problem being; I cannot access anything after login. When I type my password, it loads for 2-3 minutes which is odd as-is, ringtones and after the login, instead of being greeted by the desktop, it's just a black screen with the cursor on it. Also, I can't ctrl alt delete.
If any extra info is needed, I can provide it, I just need my problem fixed, and quick.

Are you able to boot into safe mode? If so, try disabling Windows Update service, that solved the same problem for me on Win7, and since Windows Update itself hasn't been properly updated in ages, I suspect it might be still causing this in Win8.1

I had a similar problem for my computer with Windows 8.1 in July. Since there was no way to fix the issue, I had to reinstall the operating system. Oddly my father in law had the exact same problem almost at the same time in July and had to reinstall the operating system. Probably just a coincidence? But I already lost any trust in Microsoft.
