Microsoft recently updated its support page that shows the current status of active issues affecting Windows 10 versions.

The Redmond giant released Windows 10 cumulative update KB4503327 on this month’s Patchday. Now, the tech giant confirmed that the update introduced a bug that may lead to black screen issues on startup.

Microsoft confirmed that this bug targetted various versions of Windows such as Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019, Windows 10 version 1809, and Windows Server 2019. 

You can visit the official web page to read more details regarding the issue.

Here’s a quick workaround

Thankfully, Microsoft suggested a quick workaround to resolve the black screen issues. The company suggested users should wait until their systems gets stuck on the black screen.

Then, they can force restart their machines. This time, the systems areexpected to boot correctly.

You can perform the force restart by following these steps:

  1. Once you see the black screen, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
  2. Now you will see a Power button at the lower right corner of the screen. Click on the Power button and then click Restart to reboot your system. Click Power button
  3. Now your machines will complete the reboot process without any issues.

Microsoft is investigating the issue

Microsoft is currently investigating the issue and promised to release a patch in the upcoming release. Meanwhile, you can try this temporary fix to solve the problem.

Microsoft is all set to roll out a new batch of cumulative updates in late June.

We can not deny the fact that the infamous Windows 10 October 2018 Update still gets affected by various issues every now and then.

However, it is not always necessary that all problems are related to Windows. Some issues are caused by outdated drivers, custom configurations, and hardware issues.

As far as the Windows bugs are concerned, you can use the defer update feature introduced in the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.

This feature saves your system from early issues that come along with each update. Additionally, you should create a restore point before updating your system. This can help you to avoid potential issues.
