Windows virtual machines display Black Screen after booting up in VMware ESXi or VMware Workstation

If you're having problems that when you boot up a VMware virtual machine (in this case in VMware Workstation) and find that the machine seems to boot up but the screen is black and doesn't respond to any commands you can try the following

Firstly try to disable the "Accelerate 3D graphics" option

If this doesn't solve the problem you can also change the hardware compatibility, this can certainly help if you're using an updated version of VMware version and you've migrated the virtual machine from an older version.
