black screen after initialisation

HP Notebook - 15-ac106na (ENERGY STAR)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

a couple of weeks ago my laptop updated. Since then I have had a black screen after switching on and initialising. At first I have the HP logo and a spinning circle timer, then the screen goes blank. The mouse arrow is still present when I touch the touchpad . 

I have tried a power reset and bios reset but have had no joy. I have also connected to a tv via hdmi and cannot view the screen . 


Any my ideas as I am really stuck as to what to do next?

Hi @Nick89,


Welcome to the HP Forums!


Thank you for posting your query on this forum, it's a great place to find answers.


I reviewed your post and I understand that the screen goes black after login.


Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.


I recommend you follow the below steps to fix this issue.

  1. Boot the PC
  2. Wait 15-20 minutes for the boot process to complete and for the desktop to load
  3. Once on desktop, Download and install HP Image Enhancement for System Logon - http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp81501-82000/sp81965.exe
  4. Restart the computer and check.

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
