    Screen Goes Black For 2-3 Minutes After Startup/Restart


    Upon reaching the desktop after a restart or startup, my screen goes completely black for 2-3 minutes. After that, the desktop appears again and everything works as expected – although some system tray items continue to load. This is not an intermittent thing - it happens every time I startup/restart. Also, it's not a screen hardware issue - I experience no other issues with the screen - e.g.: it does not flicker or cut out at any other time. I've checked for and installed latest drivers, firmware & BIOS updates.

    I’m thinking it might be a software conflict, but have no idea what it might be. This has been going on for quite a while and persists through system updates.

    Factors that may have an impact
    For security reasons and to lower system overhead, I’ve disabled certain system items at startup (e.g.: remote access, geolocation service, work folders, etc.) and things such as the fingerprint reader – I never use it.

    Any ideas/help are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    HP Envy Laptop
    Model: 15T AE100
    OS: Windows 10 Home x64 version 1803
    Core i7 6700HQ 2.6GHz

    Laptop goes to black screen in 2 minutes.


    Hello,
    Just installed Windows 10 yesterday. I have a Toshiba laptop.
    When no programs are running and I'm not working on the laptop, it automatically goes to a black screen now after 2-3 minutes. When I then touch a button or the mouse, it goes back to normal screen, and I can also see the internet connecting again.
    All my screensavers/shutdowns are set on 10 minutes or more.

    What can cause this?

    WIndows 10, screen goes black after a couple of minutes and have to restart computer

    Hi, I have upgraded to windows 10 and shortly (couple of minutes) after the computer boots to desktop the screen goes black and I can't do anything but turn off or restart.

    In safe mode it doesn't turn off.

    I use the hide updates patch on my gpu drivers and have set metered connection to on however the screen still goes black as if it's installing a gpu driver that doesn't work.

    Any suggestions please?

    Cheers

    Screen goes black if the power cord is connected

    Hi Tony,

    As the screen goes black I suggest you to refer the Microsoft article on
    Troubleshoot black screen problems and check if it helps.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/troubleshoot-black-screen-problems

    I also see that you are facing issues with the keyboard this might be due to the corruption of keyboard drivers. I suggest you to run the
    hardware and devices troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Follow the below steps for the same.

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with hardware and devices. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter. Refer these steps:

    • Press Windows key + X, select Control panel.
    • Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons.
    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel.
    • Run the Hardware and devices troubleshooter.
    • Restart your computer and check if the issue is resolved.
    Hope this information is helpful. Please get back to us with the information required, if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.
