Black screen of death after allowing the download of Windows updates

If I turn off the Windows Update (never check the updates), everything works fine. If I put "Download updates but let me choose whether to install" I have problems. The PC continuously restarts itself just as the Windows password box appears.
I find that even if I said not to install updates, it does not account for this and will forward any how. The stop button indicates that the fixes will be installed (kb973923, kb973525, kb936514 & kb956828) after some difficulties, I can get it to boot. And then, during the stop, it install another patch kb960003. Then again, at shutdown, it install another patch. I can't tell which one is installed at this stage because it is impossible to get it working again. Safe mode does not help. I have to go back to a restore point before I set windows update to download the patches use the ERD.
Why it installs fixes when I told explicitly not to do so?
How will I know what is\are the origin of the problem patches?
I have to run my PC without updates, which is obviously not a good idea
The problem began in late December, front, then it worked OK.

Hi Mike,.
Thanks for the reply
I tried your suggestion without success
But I think that I managed to solve the problem by updating the BIOS of the motherboard - it has not occurred since.
Very strange, I would not have thought there could be something in the BIOS that could cause this
Thanks a lot for your help

    Can you install a driver that is not correct for your hardware through Windows updates.

    Try this:

    Restore point:

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.



    If restore work not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use it.

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.

    Above is Dell to reinstall Vista from the DVD on your computer.

    And that way if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive.

  • Satellite P100: Black screen but I can hear the sound of Windows OS


    I have a problem on my Satellite p100.
    I broke the screen or something!

    When I start the computer I press the Start button and the laptop start normal. But the fact is that the computer starts but not the screen.

    The screen is not from, but the computer does!
    The screen is black, but I've heard say that im in windows beacause of the sound beginning...
    I didn't break the screen,

    Can Some1 help me? Please, I beg you!

    Maybe you accidentally switched the display on an external monitor?  :|
    Have you tried to use the FN + F5 key combination to return the display on the laptop?

    In addition, I would recommend linking the external monitor to the laptop to check if something appears on a second external display.

    If this does not help with this strange problem I would recommend contacting the ASP in your country. Maybe, display works really bad and a very small part or whole LCD screen needs to be replaced

    Good luck


    HI HI! Last week, I noticed that the Windows Update icon continues to show I have a new critical update to be installed. I'll go ahead and make this facility, it strengthens its registry backup and it will say it is successful and if you look in the history of successful downloads it will show there as well for all the times I've downloaded it, BUT when the PC is restarted, the icon will be back once again or sometimes in only a few minutes after that the first case was allegedly downloaded. Update is Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - December 2009 (KB890830. So far, I have 7 different instances of the same download the update history. I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate, Service Pack 2. I used malwarebytes and SUPERAntispyware to scan the PC and it found no infection. I have AVG Internet Security 9.0 as my anti-virus and firewall. BTW * I noticed my PC is much more slow and made windows Explorer freezes which prompted me to think about an infection, but nothing is found *.

    A last round in my bag:

    Uninstall AVG Free 9.0 & reboot. Now do a new installation of AVG Free 9.0, this time select the CUSTOM installation option and do NOT install (uncheck) Linkscanner Search-Shield, Active Surf-Shield, security or the email of crawl components toolbar.

    Why you don't need your anti-virus to scan your email

  • Acer V3 - 574G - 74BC Black Screen of Death After Windows Update

    Model: Acer Aspire V3 - 574 G-74BC

    OS: Windows only 10 language

    I recently bought this laptop and use it for more than a month now, last Sunday (January 17) windows did her update and since then I am having this problem. I tried to read the forums online and discover that its because of a defective video card driver included on the recent update of windows, I try to follow the instructions on how to fix as uninstall video card driver and reinstalling it, still the same, I have 2 video display adapter, a Nvia GeForce 940 M and the other is built into the Intel HD 5500 graphics card try it on the two graphics card and still the same thing, I try to use the built in function Windows 10 Reset and I have had back display but if I try to lock the screen or restart or shutdown and restart it will return to the blackscreen, I try to press the windows logo + P has selected everything on the way to project the screen, still the same , I even try to start in safe mode and the safe mode with networking, but it wouldn't boot in economy mode. I was thinking of getting the installation disc 10 windows or the media, but before I try to my former installer of windows 7 and it would not even start to optical disc even if I already change its start encode or priority to CD ROM drive Those who have experience dealing with this issue and was able to successfully fix it. I really need some help here. Thanks in advance.

    It is one of the big mistake on windows 10, autopilots updates, especially about the graphics drivers.

    the best way is to enter safe mode, uninstall the graphics card Intel, checking also to uninstall the software. Navigate to c:\Intel and delete all the files associated with the installation of the graphics (you can delete folder Intel also).

    How to enter safe mode, you can follow the instruction for recovery drive:

    You can try to start by pressing ALT + F10 to start recovery, and then follow the instructions to enter in safe mode or use a recovery/USB support facility:

    Then, you will need to disable the automatic update drivers:

  • Does anyone has found a fix for the black screen of death on Mass Effect 3 on Xbox 360?

    My game Mass Effect 3 crashed on Xbox 360.  It freezes and becomes a black screen of death just prior to the start menu.  For some reason, is that xbox live associated profile.  It works on any profile other than the one I used and played through all 3 games.  I spent an hour and a half with xbox live support and they could not solve the problem. They also recognized that I'm not the only one with this problem.  We tried to remove and reinstall my profile, I downloaded my profile on the hard drive of my another xbox 360 console without result. We also moved all the parties backed up to the cloud and remove all content of Mass Effect 3, still no luck. They suggested that I come here and try to find answers and start a rallying cry for a patch to fix this problem.  It's extremely frustrating after playing every game Mass Effect 3 thanks to several times that all of my choices and just saved games be erased by a stupid bug in the game.  I have hundreds, if not thousands of hours invested in the series.  I don't want to start over with Mass Effect 1 and play through it again on a new profile.  Who can say this bug won't happen on my new profile anyway?  Please, if anyone else has this post problem here if you have resolved, or simply to add your voice to those who need this fixed a bug.  Thank you.


    This forum is supported only for the Windows operating systems (have no idea why they told you to come here), so I suggest you to stay in touch with Xbox support.

    1st thing to try is a restoration of the system in safe mode

    Windows Vista

    Using the F8 method:

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. When the computer starts, you will see your computer hardware are listed. When you see this information begins to tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theBoot Options Advanced Windows Vista.
    3. Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
    5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
    6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.

    If that does not read this information

    the link below is how to download and get a vista disk startup repair, which you can start from the

  • Vista 64-bit Black Screen of Death, with just a mobile available slider, the system does not start in safe mode.

    My system worked properly on 25 April and then something happened and now the machine comes back with "Start menu options" but will not start in one of the listed options, modes result in the same outcome.  System also starts on the Vista CD.

    System begins to boot normally, shows the tracer Green Windows at the bottom of the screen, then the mouse pointer appears and moves but the rest of the screen remains black.

    That's it, that's all what he will do.  I checked the settings of the computer and ran the diagnostic tests available and everything seems to go fine and passes all the tests.

    I worked on my own computers for over 20 years and never been stumped before, but I must say this is a first, and I have no idea what to try to do it now.

    Help or direction is appreciated.

    original title: Vista 64-bit Black Screen of Death, with just a mobile available slider, the system does not start in safe mode.

    See if there is a way to tecover clean your data before doing a restore to conditions of factory that will wipe the drive of all.  You can use Knoppix with a good ISO as Copier: as well as a blank CD (which you will need to do on another computer).  Starting on this disc and lla should give you enough access to the system (if you do not have any other means) to backup your important data.

    So since you seem to have no other alernatives, you can try retoring the original factory computer options. However, if it is a hardware problem as could very well be the case, you can still encounter problems after even this drastic step.  Then you will need to consider in a reputable computer repair shop (NOT Geek Squad or or a any of these big store centers) or maybe even go back to the manufacturer for repair.   Check out several options and compare the costs, quality and guaranteed and then make your best decision.

    I hope this helps.

  • Satellite A200 - black screen of death

    Hi all

    I have a Satellite A200 PSAFCA-01K00J model. This model, I bought Harvey Norman in Australia, but I can't find any registration on the web site of current Toshiba or abandoned. This sux because I am looking for any bios updates available to address a recent black screen problem.

    The first time this has happened that I was able to reboot after removing the battery/cut the current to several times before its good. The next day, after an attempted works to install Kaspersky Anti-virus update the same problem... Power disconnected, removed, deleted drums (replacing the cylinder one and then the other to check the faulty ram memory cards) of ram and hard drive and then bled off residual tension with start button. Through this process several times before finally successful. I had to pass by it a few times since after restarts automatic windows updates, etc. I extracted the procedure to manually reset the bios by jumping it, but it's something I want to avoid doing this until I've exhausted all other options.

    What happen exactly when you start your laptop?

    By the way: I ve checked the download from Toshiba on page and can not find this old model of laptop. I don't understand that Toshiba to THE is some archives for old models like on the page of European support.

    Anyway, I don't think that BIOS is the reason for this behavior.

  • Black screen of death

    Hello team HP, well I have a problem that I solved as a few minutes ago, and then I start to download the windows update and the problem appeared again when, even before, with no changes and any other. so. My problem is "black screen of death" with NO cursor. I solved after 4 days it appeared, is almost (i gues) each logical possibility, but the solution had totally defrag my hard drive and install new and clean OS, after that, I thought I never see again (was naïve enough) now I type still working you in safe mod because only in this way its. Can you pls help me somehow? because after this 4 days im really pi * d stop. Thanks in advance for your support, your comments and your time.

    Is my product number: XC224EA#AKB

    Hi Donald,.

    One thing that strikes me is that you have tried this before and solved with a reinstall of windows.

    Who says software problem speaks of weare and not the hardware problem.

    You mention that you get a blue error screen which is too fast to get on an external display.

    Other Quen relocation complete Windows I don't see another option I solved the blue screen of death for others before, on a similar machine specifically associated with an update of windows.

    Is what you can do, when you get into safe mode, search in the "updates installed" for a specific windows, the kb2670838 update and remove.

    Then, you can try to start the machine again normally, if possible, go online and go to the HP website and find the driver download for your device and windows 7 operating system.

    In the list of available drivers, scroll to 'and QFE operating system' and that download and install (make sure that you first download the update on your own computer and then run, don't run it directly from the Hp website).

    That MIGHT solve your problem, but if not, your only option left is to reinstall windows.

    If you need to reinstall windows, I suggest you rather quickly thereafter, go and download above mentioned QFE for your machine so you will have set the isue of update that is bothering you.
