Preferred Solution: Screen not turning on

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Here is the issue, when my computer goes to sleep after it's on for a while when I move the mouse to get the screen back up it shows the backround no icons or anything to click.
Same if I turn it off and turn it back on. I have to turn it off and on many times then go to safe mode and shut down then turn it on again for it to work. Just now I had to turn it on/off 4 times for it to show the icons and task bar. Usually it is left blank with nothing to click having no choice but to turn it off.
Norton says no viruses.
My computer is HP with windows 7. I bought it in 2011.
This problem has been happening for a long time. Please help.

A:When turning off computer & turning it back on again screen is blank

Hello squirrels and welcome to Seven Forums.

I think I'd start out by trying to do a startup repair. It's been suggested that the startup repair be done 3 times (regardless of what the notifications say) and the computer rebooted after each repair.

If this doesn't fix the problem one of the Forum experts has prepared these troubleshooting guides with some additional suggestions.

Hi everyone,

From last few weeks I'm having this strange and annoying blank screen of death. I could just see a blank screen (not a blue screen) while either waking up computer from sleep or while trying to turn on the display by moving cursor/typing something(waking up from power saver mode of display, I set display to be of after few minutes of inactivity). So essentially screen becomes total blank. Just once or twice I saw this BSOD "DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE" but for all other times my screen is just blank. I could see the Hard Disk activity LED on during this blank screen. And almost after all subsequent boots, I could see "Windows has recovered from unexpected shutdown/serious error - Check for solution" message.

System - Windows 7 Pro x64 with all latest recommended and security updates
CPU - i7 2630QM
GPU - nVidia GT525M

First I suspected its because of my nVidia GT525M GPU drivers (I was using official latest drivers 320.49), so I completely uninstalled them with regular uninstall + DriverSweeper 2.1.0 from Guru3D.com. I did not install any nVidia/display drives since then. But just now I got another blank screen after it. Also I started connecting my PC to an old Sony Bravia TV with HDMI cable and that time the automatic installation of drivers failed. That is my second point of possible problem.

Dear all, Happy new year and all

I wonder if you could help...

My husbands laptop this evening will not turn on AT ALL. It was working perfectly well a few days ago:

When the power button is turned on all that happens is the power light turns green. There is no sound coming from the hard drive (the hard drive light doesn't even show). In addition, there doesn't seem to be a fan working. And finally, there is a light strange noise (not a hard drive noise).

I am wondering whether it is a motherboard issue????
Woud creating a recovery bios boot CD help? Would like wipe the hard drive?

The major problem is that the laptop is used for all our business transactions and GASP.... we haven't backed it up, so we could potentially lose very important data
Many thanks and I do hope somebody is out there to help us.

Much geekness

Hello everyone! Iv'e been having an issue that's driving me crazy and i'm hoping someone here can help.

The issue i'm having is when my computer goes into sleep/hibernate mode and i wake it up, the screen appears to have a resolution issue ( picture attached ). I figured this wasn't a big deal so i turned sleep/hibernate mode off and just turn my screen off when not in use. I'm getting the exact issue though! When i turn my screen off and back on, the resolution is messed up.
So now i need help resolving this. If it also fixes it for the sleep/hibernate mode, that would be great but not necessary
The ONLY recent change is I upgraded to an Asus GTX560 Ti DirectCU II Top OC graphics card. I installed the card into my computer and windows automatically downloaded the drivers for it.

Things i've tried:
1)Uninstalled and reinstalled graphics drivers using windows update and then again through Nvidia website
2) Currently using HDMI, but get the same issue with DVI-D (single) cord
3) Completely reinstalled Windows 10 Pro from scratch
4) Double checked all connections
5) Look through settings on my TV and settings on the graphics card through Nvidia Experience

A:Screen/Resolution Issues When Turning Screen On/Off

You appear to have a very old Dell (OptiPlex?) model desktop.
What is its model name and model number?
What is the exact "service tag" and "express service code" numbers on it?

Is it running Windows 10 Pro 32-bit or 64-bit?
You should download and save the appropriate driver from the NVIDIA site, then select the custom install option, then select the clean install option.

Are you having the same issues when using a standard computer monitor instead of using a HD TV?

Hello,I'm not sure if this is the right place to post but hopefully I can get some help or be forwarded to a place a I can.So a few years ago my parents purchased a C40-05 all-in-one desktop. From the start there were problems. It would hang at the Lenovo screen, continuously have to enter Windows Repair and would not shut down correctly. After updating via the latest updates from both Windows and Lenovo, the desktop's display seems to be not working. When I power on the screen just stays blank as if no power is going to it. However, if I put in a CD i can hear it spin and also I can see the power buttons on both the mouse and keyboard light up. I can't even access the bios as there is no display what so ever.  Any of you experienced this or know how I can fix it? At this point it's not really worth taking to a shop but if I could access the bios at least that would be a start. ThanksChris

My monitor turns off every now and again, I've changed the monitor to test if it was that which was causing the problem but it still happens. I've also changed the wire, checked the power supply (seems fine from what I can tell) and replaced the hard drive. I could be playing a game or doing nothing on it at all and it would happen.

Don't think it's the graphics card as when it does work the images are fine.

One thing I noticed when it does turn off is that my external hard drive turns off too but the computer remains on,also once when I was playing music when the screen went off the music stopped too. Makes me think its a hardware problem but not sure which.

I have no idea what I did wrong.

Took apart my laptop (see signature/system specs) to get the part number off the fan and put the computer back together as normal. Turned it on and voila, no display. Don't know why. Rechecked the connection of the display cable a few times, and still no display. I'm wondering if maybe I damaged the cable or the system board. The computer turns on though, just no display!
Took apart the lid to check the screen. Firstly, HP's construction continues to amaze me. These things are built like tanks for sure! Secondly, there's no visible damage to the screen or any components inside of the lid. Going to put it back together and test the screen one more time, and if that doesn't work, I'll test with an external monitor to see how things work out...

I know, vague, but I'm kinda stuck/lost here.

A:Screen not turning on

Hello kbronski,

Keep in mind that all the LCD wire connectors are extremely fragile. Do not apply too much force while reconnecting the cables. Secure the connector with the clear tape.

If the external monitor doesn't work, try power cycling:

shut down
unplug battery and charger
hold power button for 5 to 10 seconds to drain all residual power
plug battery and charger back in

If the external monitor does work, hold down the FN key while you tap the F-key with a picture of a monitor. Perhaps, it got turned off.

Yesterday I was in a hurry and it was taking a long time to shut the laptop down. So I went for a force shut down. But now when I am turning on the laptop, nothing is happening. The screen is black, nothing is coming up. I thought it's a screen problem, but the buttons are also not working. I tried the Caps lock button, Mute button, Airplane mode button, but nothing is happening. The screen is black. And nothing is coming. I waited for 10-15 mins but nothing is happening. Restarted the device quite a number of times, removed the battery and then tried to turn it on. But at the end, the problem is still there. I need it today at 3 in the afternoon. If someone can help, it will be very kind.

Hi guys!I have a Toshiba Encore tablet with windows 8.1 on it. After an update yesterday, the screen doesn't turn off when it gets in sleep mode.It turn black, but it still has the background light on.The same update messed up the screen luminosity.It is set to maximum by default, and no matter how much I change it, nothing happens.The battery drains very fast with the screen on this way and I really don't know how to solve it.I tried system restore, but it didn't have any images saved, so I need a solution apart from that.Many thanks!

You could try rolling back the updates until you uninstall the "bad" one. Process of elimination is all I know if you cannot restore point your way out or apply a backup image.

I had to do a clean wipe on a virus/malware infected HP All In One Touchsmart 310-1000z (2010 model). I have turned off hibernate, sleep, hybrid sleep, and hard drive sleep. Screen is set to dim at 3 minutes and screen saver at 10 minutes. But for some reason, the screen will just go blank randomly, it seems like maybe 45-60 minutes after being turned on.

Clicking the mouse does not bring the screen back, nor typing on keyboard, nor touching the screen. Have to press the power button and shut it off that way. The hard drive light does not flicker, leading me to believe it may still be going into a sleep mode I can't find?

Hi guys!
Not a BSOD here, but I think this is the right section for posting.
Let's start with system specifications: Acer Aspire 5930 series, Geforce 9600M GT and Windows 7 x64 SP1.
I have an annoying problem: like I said in the thread title, my screen turns off, sometimes I hear the sound of the game, sometimes I hear the last sound looping.
The only thing I can do is to force the shutdown.
I didn't find any relevant timing in crashes, could be after 5 minutes playing or after one hour.
I've spent last days googling this ("black screen loop sound" or something like that) and I found hundreds of thread all over the internet about this issue.
I found that it can happen with different video cards, different mother boards, different versions of Windows and different games (for me it happens for Age of Mithology, COD2, COD4, League of Legends)

What i tried to do following the ideas given in those threads:
- Checked temperatures, a lot of ppl speaks about overheating. These temperature don't go really high, the blank screen happens even just after booting. I haven't had temperature problems recently (like pc slowed). Anyway, I cleaned the ventilation system.
- Stressed video card with FurMark. Nothing happened and it didn't go over 75?C.
- Tested Ram with Memtest 86+, got 2 passes. Anyway I imagin that if it were a Ram problem, Windows would give a BSOD.
- Scanned system with Kaspersky Antivirus 2012 and Lavasoft Ad-Aware.

Power Supply issue would only be on a desktop PC, laptops use the battery as a buffer so to speak:).

Check for updated lan and wireless drivers as well especially if it's a realtec lan adapter.

Are you running video drivers from the ASUS site or the Nvidia site, laptops often use modified drivers to over come shortfalls in the design.

Hello everyone!
I have a big problem with my new Dell laptop - Inspiron N5110.
It was working fine at the beginning but now it is impossible to use. The screen of the computer keeps on turning off every few minutes...
I suspect it might be related with the fact that I started using HDMI cable when connecting it to the TV. The connection was working for a while (though it was possible to see the video on TV screen only, not on the laptop).
But now even disconnected laptop 'thinks' there is TV connected and automatically turns off the screen. The button on the far right side of the keyboard keeps on turning on by itself (square with a line across, indicating another screen used).
Please advise how to fix this major problem - it becomes impossible to use my new laptop...

A:Dell screen not turning on

Basic troubleshooting:
Unplug the system, remove or disconnect the battery (may require removing the base cover), and hold the power button for 30 sec.  Remove and reinstall the memory module(s) and the hard drive.
Plug in the AC adapter.  Verify that the LED on it (or on the DC plug) is ON before you connect the notebook.  If it's not, replace the adapter with a new one.
Plug the adapter into the system and try powering up with no battery.  If it will, but won't with the battery connected, the battery is bad;  replace it with a new one.
If the system still won't power up, the mainboard is bad.  
If you need further assistance, please post the full system model information (i.e., Inspiron N5110, XPS L502x, etc.).

Sometimes (I'd guess 1/20) the screen does not turn on after the lid has been closed and reopened. Closing the lid again and reopening again does not work. It's not a sleep problem or similar -- if a video is playing, I'm still able to pause/unpause and hear the sound even though the screen is off. Furthermore, it's set to 'do nothing' on lid close in power options. A hard reboot solves the issue. X1 Carbon 4, W10 x64, BIOS 1.21 Please advice

What kind of monitor are you using, and what is the Graphics chipset in for the Graphic's card?  Does it do this, when you boot into safe mode?

Hi im new here and need some help so this is my first post,
My partners computer screen keeps turning off for no apparent reson, first we started by restarting the screen and some times it may stay on,
but today that dousent even work, after a restart of the computer and of the monitor the screen will dim for a secound then turn off, well it go's blank the power light is still on.
Iv played with the cord while the computer is still on and some times the picture comes back but only for a secound but then disapears again i noticed she also has an adaptore on the end of her cord that go's into the box (sorry no idea on what type of plug it is but its not the normal plug, hence the adaptor it douse have gigabyte printed on it)
I dont belive its the video card coz the picture is fine when its on with no errors but im not shore if the plug itself is stuffed.
Im not shore if its the cable coz when the screen is blank it still has the blue light and when i unplug it after about 30sec it will change to orange, so i belive the computer is still giving a signel to the screen.
And i cant tell if its the screen coz i couldent work out a way i could test it.
Im not shore what the problem is and we dont have alot of money to go out buying all new parts to try work the problem out if any one can help that would be great.

Hi, My yoga 710 screen is not turning on and is completely black. I have tried holding the power button for 15 seconds until I hear the laptop fan. However, that has not helped.  The keyboard light still turns on and I can turn it on and off when I need to. The laptop is still able to charge but I  have also disconnected the charger when I have attempted to power it on. Still does not work.  There has been a few issues with it in the past such as the laptop restarting when I take it off my table or move it slightly.  The laptop is approximately 18 months old.  Any help will be appreciated.

hey sorry that i've posted this samish message in other forums, i'm new to this posting stuff.

when i start windows especially, my screen goes black anytime a program begins to load. it turns off up to 3 times every time a program is loading and then it's fine until i start another program. there is no blacking out during demanding video games. i have uninstalled and installed the newest video card drivers. this has been a bit annoying, but i installed linux and it is constantly turning the screen black so i am stuck with windows xp.
this wasn't a problem before i bought a new motherboard and ram and processor.

thank you so much for any help!! this has just been annoying for soooo long and i havent found any of my friends that is smart enough to figure this out.

For the past month my PC has been rebooting itself at random with no BSOD or crash report. I sent it in to get fixed where they gave it a system restore and taking out all the components before putting them back in, before leaving it on for several days with no issues. However it then restarted within minutes of me bringing it back home.
I've tried replacing the power block with a new one with surge protection, using different sockets or rooms in the house, switching the screen and power cables. I also ran windows memory diagnostic, Norton 360 and system checker. But nothing has worked, infact it seems to have gotten worse with the screen now turning off but the pc keeps running until I turn it off myself.
I ran the event viewer (see attachment) but I'm pretty much computer illiterate so I can't really make sense of it. Can anyone help me?

I have a dv3-22330 Laptop that only recently has starting to have problems that occured about a week or two ago. On startup the LCD display does not show anything just a black screen but everything else continues to function as normal like it should, i have tried all of the suggested ideas like taking out all the power and holding the power button for 60 seconds to get rid of any charge that maybe triggering the failsafe.

The strangest thing is that im writting this thread on the very same laptop, after some testing done earlier the laptop screen will only turn on when the power cable is plugged in but will not turn the screen off when taken out again.

Laptop + Battery = No Screen
Laptop + Battery with power cable plugged in after or during boot up = Screen on
Laptop + Power cable = Screen on
Laptop + Battery + Power cable = Screen On

This surely rules out that the common suggestion that i found like backlight, inverter ect isnt the problem and this also does not sound like a dodgey cable as the power cable would have no effect on a wonky cable. The most obvious problem might be that it has to do with the Power Saving settings but they are set so they also do not turn the screen off in anyway although with the power cable plugged in makes the screen come on you would be lead to believe it is.

Any help to this problem would be greatly appreciated as this is baffeling me.
