When I turn on the PC/laptop, I see a black screen for a long time (3-10 minutes, usually) before seeing the screen that requires my password (or pin or whatever). Sometimes, I see the mouse on the black screen, but that's all. Sometimes, the screen is completely black
Why is this happening? How can it be fixed besides going back to linux?
*windows 10 is notorious to do this. after an update.. or if the drive detected errors.
Sometimes when a drive is old or has errors it boots slowly. In addition at timesm windows will mark a drive for an error check to be done on next start up. When the machine is turned on it scans the drive but only shows you a black screen then loads windows..
'I would recommend you download and run hwinfo - and see if in the listing for the hard drive there is any warnings shown.
also as a safeguard - run a chkdsk C: /f/r from a command window with administrator privileges. This should mark any bad sectors and should alleviate the problem... temporarily. *signs of bad sectors usually mean start saving for a new one.
My only guess if is INDEED Aster related is maybe its having a problem loading up and checking devices by aster....Hopefully one of their techs will answer you.
