    Black screen with no cursor after initial boot up

    Hi all,
    This is my very first post, hope you guys can help me out.

    I have a Lenovo H520S Desktop.

    After updating to windows 8.1, everytime I open my PC after the initial bootup, I just get a black screen with no cursor, I can access bios setup but not onekey recovery(which I can access before).

    I already removed my ram and video card and placed it back, but it's still not working.

    Thanks in advance for the answers 😊
