    Monitor blank stuck in power saving mode, now solved....so far.


    No techie at all but hope this helps....

    For some reason the monitor suddenly went blank this afternoon saying "No Signal". Spent a lot of time and read a lot of posts via Google trying to sort it out without success until I read something somewhere about "Define power buttons and turn on Password protection" in "Power Options" none of which I really understood. However at the bottom it said "require or don't require a password" which as I'd already created one ignored and was about to continue looking.

    Then at the last moment I thought why not so ticked the box that said "Don't require a password" re-booted and the monitor came on ! Strangest of all I had to enter my original password again and so far it's been fine ever since.

    I'll leave it all to the experts but I was already thinking I'd have to buy a new monitor even though this is only a couple of years old so obviously very chuffed - though I've still got my fingers crossed.

    So if it's of any help to anyone....?

    :)

    Power on and off your computer three times

    On the third time, your computer will boot into the Advanced Recovery environment

    Click Advanced Options

    Click Troubleshoot

    Click Advanced options

    Click Startup Settings

    Click Restart

    Press (4) to Enable Safe Mode

    Wait while Windows 10 starts in safe mode.

    Log in

    Press Windows key + X

    Click Device Manager

    Expand Display adapters

    Right click the current display adapter

    Click Properties

    Click Driver tab

    Click Rollback driver if the option is available

    If not

    Right click the current display adapter

    Click Uninstall

    Exit Device Manager

    Restart

    If that does not work, try performing a system restore before this problem occurred.

    I recommend you uninstall the KB4048955, KB4048954 (Windows 10 1703)

    Microsoft issued an update for several versions of WIndows 10: KB4048954, KB4048955 that has caused issues with display drivers. If you know the make and model of your computer, you can try manually reinstalling the driver from the manufacturers website for
    your video driver.

    Press Windows key + R

    Type: appwiz.cpl

    Hit Enter

    Click View installed updates

    Select the recent update

    (This is the update you want to uninstall KB4048955)

    Right click it then click uninstall.

    Restart then see if stability is restored.

    The update might try to install again. So, try blocking it.

    Is there an option or work around to block updates or hardware drivers that might cause problems?

    Yes, Microsoft has released a KB update (KB3073930) that will let users block or hide Windows or driver updates.

    You can download it at the following link:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3073930

    If its the icons and toolbars, then Go back to Start > Settings > System > Display

    Click in the Scale and layout list box, try another scale such as 125 to see if that works or play around with custom scaling.

    Option 2:

    Perform a repair upgrade

    A recent video update has been causing havoc for many people. You are "lucky", for many people it has caused their monitor to display in "wrong" resolutions. The "fix" is basically what you have discovered, undo the video driver update. The trick you have
    not picked up on yet is that you have to block windows from redoing the "improvement" for you. Here are some tips:

    UNINSTALL VIDEO DRIVER

    This is a recent, VERY common problem being asked on the site. The current unverified best guess is to try resetting the Video driver: either roll it back, or uninstall it and let win re-install, or windows upgrade it or manually download upgrade from video
    system builder site

    - In start menu search for Control Panel’ (icon view)

    - Right click on Device Manager

    - Select Run as Admin

    - Expand Display Adapters

    - double click on the device whose driver you need to uninstall to display the Driver Properties dialog

    - You have buttons for 3 options:

    - if it is active and you think the problem is a recent update, you can try the “Roll Back Driver button”

    - or you can try the Uninstall button

    - or you can try the Update Driver to let Windows do the update (often doing a driver update “manually” is better)

    - restart Windows

    If it is not an Intel(R) HD Graphics driver, make note of the name (in case the fix above did not work). Go to the web site for the video card maker and see if they have a newer driver for the specific video card. Also ask the same question there to see if
    they can come up with a better answer.
