But Today i'm surprised that when i turn on PC after the windows logo i get a (black screen for like 4 seconds) it happens before windows logon after windows logo

Windows 10 Black Screen Just Before Login Screen.

what is the cause of it please ? i wasn't having this problem at all after installing windows 10 yesterday


it's a black screen with a spinning dots at the bottom

i have tried uninstalling graphic card drivers and re installing , switching to high performance in control panel non worked

Do you have any other hard drives or USB's attached? When you installed "your windows", did you migrate your OS or was it a fresh install? Also check all your connections to see if you might have knocked something loose. What is your current boot order?

BTW, increasing your power plan to high performance will likely do nothing more than make your computer run hotter and consume more power, best to stay with balanced and set sleep and hard drive shutdown to never.

- Indeed i do have a 320 GB HDD connected , i was using this HDD before as main splitting it to 2 partitions , C : for windows and D: for everything else ( games , softwares , pictures , etc ...) after buying ssd i did install windows freshly on the SSD .
ONE important thing to mention is that i was having this black screen after logo problem on my hdd before buying SSD


SO now i still have windows installed on HDD and programs on it .

  • THE WINDOWS 10 install it was Fresh on my SSD it wasn't migrated
  • i Have 1 usb attached and it's my usb wireless adapter
  • current boot order? = SSD , HDD , USB
  • I switched again to balanced and set sleep and hard drive shutdown to never.

What is probably happening is you bios is trying to boot off your old drive, (even if the boot order is set up other wise). Disconnect all your other drives, except the ssd, and see if the problem persists.

Well if the boot order was set to boot from the SSD, it should never attempt to boot from other drives, unless if the CMOS battery is going bad and keeps resetting all the options to boot from old HDD.

Didn't happen to me before, have tried it multiple times and it booted as it asked to and no confusion happened between the drives and it worked just fine.

It's more common with older systems, when CPU/MB and chip sets were just starting to support SSDs. It may not be the problem. but it's worth eliminating it as a cause.
