What is Black Screen meaning in computers?

Computers will display a black or blank screen when something goes wrong with graphics drivers, monitor connectivity, BIOS configuration or other sources. Black screen issues can be problematic since you won’t be able to see your screen at all.

This is different from the Black Screen of Death (BSOD), which is a stop error displayed on a Windows computer system after a fatal system error, also known as a system crash: when the operating system reaches a condition where it can no longer operate safely.

Most common black screen issues on Windows PC

Most of all, users have reported the following problems in Windows 10:

  • Black screen windows 10 with cursor – Black screen usually appears if you have two monitors. Simply detach one of your monitors and the problem should disappear.
  • Windows black screen with cursor after login – This issue is similar to the previous one, and it can be caused by your Project mode. To fix it, simply use Windows Key + P shortcut to switch to a different project mode.
  • Windows 10 black screen without cursor – In some cases, you won’t even see a cursor when the black screen appears. This can be caused by your BIOS configuration. To fix the problem, you need to check BIOS configuration and make sure that you’re using only the dedicated graphics.
  • Black screen after Windows 10 update – This problem can sometimes appear after a problematic update. To fix the issue, be sure to remove the latest update and check if that helps.
  • Black screen Windows 10 after sleep – Several users reported black screen issues after waking up their PC from sleep. To fix that, try disabling Fast Startup feature.
