If you’re planning to install the latest Windows 10 updates, take a few minutes to thoroughly think about it.

Indeed, the September 2019 Patch Tuesday updates are out but it’s worth noting that some of them might trigger black screen issues for users.

For exemple, Windows 10 v1809 KB4512578 might cause your PC to start up to a black screen during the first logon.

Microsoft already acknowledged the issue and is working on a fix.

We are investigating reports that a small number of devices may startup to a black screen during the first logon after installing updates.

As a workaround, Microsoft suggests pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete. You can then select the Power button in the lower right corner of the screen and go to  Restart. Your PC should restart normally.

As you can see, this problem affects only a small number of computers. However, if you want to avoid such issues, you should block automatic updates for the time being.

In the worst-case scenario, Microsoft’s workaround won’t work. You can bookmark these troubleshooting guides on a secondary device in case you might need them later.

Have you experienced any issues after installing this month’s Patch Tuesday updates? Let us know in the comments below.
