    Black screen after login to Windows 10 after Dec 8th driver update


      This past week in a half I have had multiple issues Logging in to Windows. Computer boots up fine in about 8-10 seconds, splash screens and all to login resolution is correct. Type in my password windows load, 2 seconds later, black screen. I did a system restore 2 times, fixes the issue but once i update drivers, fails again at login. The only why I have found to fix this issue is to roll back my drive updates to October. So far, login just fine no issues. My conclusion is that there is a issue with the December updates that cause this. I hope this helps if anyone else is having the same issues.


      I booted my PC in to safe mode via holding shift at the login screen and clicking restart. Then booted in Safe Mode with Network access

      Then I installed DDU and wiped all drivers and restarted my PC: DDU download link ( USE IN SAFE MODE ) Display Driver Uninstaller Download version

      I went to Downloads | techPowerUp and downloaded the Oct 13th update

      Everything rolled back, was able to restart and login. I will keep up with this post and give a update if anything changes
