Microsoft releases fix for Windows Vista Black Screen

Microsoft has released a hotfix to resolve an issue, where a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 stops responding at a black screen early in the startup process.

Black Screen in Windows Vista

When you start a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, it stops responding at a black screen early in the startup process.

The issue occurs because of a deadlock between a thread in Windows NT File System driver (Ntfs.sys) and a thread in the Autochk.exe program.

This issue may occur sometimes or every time that you start the computer.

If you can load Windows successfully, apply this Fix 294183.

Visit KB977675 for details.

See this post if you have Windows 10 Black Screen problems.
