Microsoft yesterday released a cumulative update for Windows 10
April 2018 Update (version 1803) addressing most of the
critical issues. The patch is offered to all devices running
Windows 10 version 1803 and systems will install the patch
automatically. Microsoft has also fixed the bug in Windows 10
April 2018 Update which was causing Google Chrome to
freeze on some devices.
Microsoft last week acknowledged a
critical bug in Windows 10 which was freezing Google
Chrome, Hey Cortana, and some other apps. The bug was
also causing devices to crash completely. Microsoft in a
community forums post confirmed that the Windows 10 Build
17134.38 resolves the issue.
Build 17134.38 is the first cumulative update for Windows
10 version 1803, and while it fixes many bugs, the report
claims that KB4103721
is causing a black screen on some hardware. Needless to

the Start button, and then go
toSettings > Update &
security > Windows Update, and select Check
for updates,” Microsoft moderator said.
The reports claim that the patch for Windows 10 April 2018
Update pushes the systems to a black screen, and no
workaround has been discovered until now. It’s worth noting
that the systems fail to boot once the installation process
comes to an end.
You can clean install Windows 10 April 2018 Update or boot to
Safe Mode and remove the update manually. Needless to say, if
nothing works for you, restoring the system to the previous
version of Windows 10 (the Fall Creators Update) is your only
As noted above, Microsoft hasn’t yet acknowledged any
issues with a cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1803.
The patch is still available for download, though it has the
potential to brick even more devices. In the coming hours,
Microsoft could also offer a workaround to recover the bricked
PCs. We’ll be keeping an eye on forums and update the story
when an official workaround is available.
