    After different windows updates now have two totally different PCs displaying same problem starting up. Talked to other users and it’s common problem. Windows either goes to black screen at some stage during boot up or gets in ok and quickly loses mouse and any input control. Only option is to switch off. Usually ok when switch on again, but have had nerve-racking moments. We have evo ssds installed but friends have not. Have now turned off fast boot option in power settings and possibly better but not fail safe.

    This usually fixes the problem. Also, this setting sometimes gets reset after Windows updates. If this isn't working, you can try uninstalling the offending update and reinstalling it. I'd do this long before doing a clean install. That's an awful harsh first step. No idea why someone would suggest that.

    This problem occurs regularly after an update. Now regularly solve by going into power settings and turning off the fast boot option, so it makes a clean start on every occasion. Very annoying that windows update seems to reset the computer's options in this way.

    When a system will not boot correctly the first time but will after a reboot, I first think some type of driver problem is involved.

    Are you seeing any entries in the Event Viewer that are consistent over time. If you type perfmon /rel in a run box does the graph show any continuing problems?

    As BigFeet mentions, updates can reset certain options which may be involved. Windows device drivers loaded during an update might change without you knowing.
