However, it just get stuck on the personalized settings with a black screen. I disconnect my wireless keyboard and mouse and it is still not responding. After booted into safe mode, I turn off fast boot and uninstall graphics drivers and nothing takes effect. The update screws up the tablet and I could not figure out how to get rid of that.

  1. I tried doing a ctrl + alt + del keys menu comes up and I selected task manager it appears that it wants to start but nothing happens after about 15 minutes window appears saying windows explorer has failed to start and gives opinion to either close the program or wait for it to close. Selecting either doesn’t allow task manager to come up.
