  1. Screen goes black when opening certain programs


    Hi, this issue started recently. No software or hardware changes were made around the time.


    I have 3 monitors, and whenever I open certain programs, one of the side monitors will go black.

    I have ruled out loose connectors, and other hardware issues, as it's usually the monior the program is on that goes black.

    For instance if I open spotify on my left monitor, it will go black, and my monitor says that it has no input.

    As soon as I click on another window, or my desktop, the screen turns back on.


    I was wondering if anyone have had similar issues, and/or have a solution to my problem.

    :)

    Screen goes black

    Hi Kris,

    It is possible that your screen goes black may be due to a critical system error which can cause the system to shut down. To isolate your issue, we'd like to gather more information:

    • Have you made any recent changes prior to this issue?
    • Did you get any error messages when it turns black?
    • Have you tried checking if the sleep mode is turned on/off?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Meanwhile, we recommend that you perform the steps in this
    article
    to troubleshoot blank/black screen errors. This will provide you instruction when you see a black screen before signing in to Windows 10 and when you see a black or blank screen after signing in to Windows 10.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

  3. 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.
