Question Black screen and errors configuring windows questions

Jun 7, 2019
So 5 years ago i build a pc. Now the pc froze a week ago. After restarting i would get a black screen, although a different black screen than just when my monitor is off, I could go into bios and i could install windows again, after installing i can configure my starting windows options, but after setting everything like windows account, language, keyboard language, it says that is has to restart and i just get the black screen while the computer is still running and my keyboard and mouse are still on (caps lock doesn't trigger anything though after blackscreen sets in).

Now i tried switching my harddisk, for a new ssd, tried installing windows on there and same thing happening after configuration. Tried a bunch of options like repair restart (but i couldn't find the file), or booting in safe mode (but can't go through configuration then because after every setting user question it gives me an error). Thought the harddisk would have been the problem, but that is not the case.

So its not fully installing? its going to black screen after the 1st restart and not going any further?

I don't see anything in bios about priority boot mode - some motherboards let you set a 1 off device to boot off and then it uses the default one for every other. Its a common flaw of the installer to just restart the install process on 1st startup, that isn't the case here.

Have you unplugged any extra devices that aren't necessary for install? Only 1 drive attached?

Probable cause: Setup is stuck. For whatever reason, the setup process is hung up on something and can’t proceed further.

Possible solution: Power down your computer completely and try again. Follow these steps:

  1. Power down the computer completely. If it won’t shut down, hold the power button for 5 to 10 seconds until it shuts down.
  2. Disconnect from the internet by unplugging the Ethernet cable or switching off the wireless adapter (if possible). See this post for more information on disabling LAN connections before a Windows 10 setup.
  3. Disconnect all unnecessary peripherals from the PC. Remove external hard drives, game controllers, phone chargers—pretty much everything but the keyboard and mouse.
  4. Remove power from your computer. Disconnect the power cord from the outlet. If it’s a laptop, remove the battery, too. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging your computer back in. (Note: If you have the time to spare, leave the computer unplugged for up to an hour. This will help if your computer started to get overheated.)
  5. Connect the system to power again, but leave the internet disconnected. Power on the computer.
  6. Hopefully, Windows will try to resume or restart the Windows 10 setup process.
  7. If the installation completes normally and you get to a Windows desktop with a Start menu and everything, go ahead and reconnect to the internet to finishing downloading and applying updates.
  8. If the setup rolls back to your previous version of Windows, then try upgrading manually using the Media Creation Tool or a ISO file.
