I wonder whether anyone could help me, please

I use VeraCrypt.

It’s always updated to the latest version.

VeraCrypt’s ‘’Use Secure Desktop for password-entry” is enabled.

I enter the external HD’s password, and I click on “mount”.

On a Win11 computer, the screen goes totally black.

I try the procedure involving the TaskManager, its “Run new task”, “explorer.exe”, etc etc.

It doesn’t work.

I need to restart the PC.

What is happening??

In advance, thank you very much
