    Windows 8.1 | Start-up problem | Black screen

    Hello, the other day I installed a SkinPack for Windows 8.1, using However, when I uninstalled the skinpack, I was greeted with a completely black screen. My computer starts up, I get the login screen, I login and the screen is completely black. Though I am still able to use Task Manager through Ctrl+alt+Delete and any other option in there.

    Anyone have a fix to this, or a way I can use System Restore without having to login? ( Note, I upgraded to Windows 8.1 digitally )

    Try the suggestions near the bottom of the page. It appears to be a common problem where it hasn't uninstalled properly. I woul boot in safe mode. Whislt you are at the login screen, don't login but hold down the shift key (keep holding it) and click restart from the icon in the bottom right corner. You can either try to deleted the files or restore from safe mode.

    Good luck
