    I have not seen widespread reports of 10.9.5 causing this, so I am wondering if you have something else maybe going on there.

    Can you explain exactly what happens and when step by step?

    Try doing a safe mode boot and see if it happens then. Safe mode bypasses any login or startup item to eliminate that as the cause.

    Thank you, Weaselboy .

    I tried your method logging the mac with safe mode, but same thing happened.

    FYI
    1.) I didn't download any apps or anything else after upgrading to 10.9.5.
    2.) Once its logged in (normal mode or safe mode), either the screen turn into black or I cannot click on any items since the mouse sign is busy all the time.

    Do you have any more suggestions?

    Looking forward to your good news, or anyone else's, thanks.

    Hi,

    you might do this :

    - boot up from the Recovery partition (Cmd + r on chime, or Alt on chime, then select Recovery, hit Enter)

    - from the OS X Utilities window, select Disk Utility

    - in Disk Utility, select Macintosh HD on the left, then :
    - check / repair the disk
    - repair the permissions

    - restart the Mac.

    So after logging in the whole screen just goes black? Does it stay like that and if so for how long? That sounds like a more serious hardware issue. Try running the Apple Hardware Test and see if that turns up anything.
