  1. Screen turns black after 30 seconds


    I use a laptop in a docking station with two screens connected - it has worked well for one year.


    Suddenly, and as I remember, right after accepting a systems update, screen 1 turns black, looses connection to the computer approx 30 seconds after I have turned on the computer/restarted the computer. I have checked that cables are OK and have switched dock ports etc. and it is always screen 1 that turns black.


    I suspect it has something to do with the upgrade. If anyone knows how to fix it I will be grateful to hear from you, thanks.

    :)

  2. Stuck on Black Screen While in System Restore


    Screen went black about 30 seconds into system restore. This was over two hours ago. Should I reboot even though it says not to turn computer off once the process begins? Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Monitor screen turned black and has stayed black for about 30 minutes

    I did exactly as you said--EXACTLY!!! I uninstalled the driver as you said to. I deleted the driver for "this device"--exactly as you said to...!!!

    My monitor screen turned black and has stayed black for about 30 minutes now as I write this (from my laptop).

    I even tried to boot off the DVD I made from the Win 10 ISO file but it wouldn't boot off of it.

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community Forums.

    I would appreciate, if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better?

    What is the make and model of your system?

    I would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall Graphic card drivers and check.

    Uninstall and re-install the Graphic card device driver

    a) Press “Windows Logo” + “X” keys on the keyboard.

    b) Click on “Device Manager” from that list.

    c) Go to Display adaptor and expand it and you would see the Graphics Card device, right click on it and then select “Uninstall”.

    d) On the un-installation window, if you have an option: “Delete the driver software for this device” you may select that and then remove the corrupted drivers from the computer.

    e) Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and the restart the computer if prompted.

    After the restart, go to the Device Manager again by following the steps mentioned above and then click on the “Scan for hardware changes” button. Check if Windows detects the Graphics Card device and installs an appropriate driver automatically.

    If it doesn’t install the driver, I would suggest you to go to the manufacture website and install the latest graphic card drivers.

    Hope this information is helpful. Do let us know if you need any further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.

  4. Screen turns black after 30 seconds

    Screen turns black, system "hybernating"

    Turned it on - after almost an entire day without touching it - and worked for 3 hours before the same screen black, system hibernating happened again.

    Checked the temperature throughout and the cores registered at max 56 and 50.

    Suggestions?
