Help - Computer Screen Turns Black and Can't Do Anything. [SOLVED]

Post by DatCullen on Fri 07 Dec 2012, 13:24

Hello there,

I don't know what's up with my computer, sometimes when I'm browsing the net it randomly goes to black screen then I will have to restart. When I restart and continue browsing, goes to black screen again. It's so irritating!

My PC is
NEC POWERMATE P5020
Windows Vista (using W7 Ultimate right now)
Graphic Card ATI RADEON X1200
AMD TURION 64 X2
Has 2GB of RAM

I tried updating the ATI driver the black screen still appear.

Hope someone out there can help me with this.

Hello,

Check whether your cables are connected tightly.

Black, or does the backlight just turn off?

My Cousin's laptop has a bad power/screen inverter, so it loads up to like the starting screen, and bam, no backlight, and just randomly in-between there, sometime shorter sometimes longer.

Hello,

My cables are perfectly connected. t2sink, completely black. The only way to get out of it is to restart the computer.

Does it only happen when your browsing the net? Or does it happen during anything.

It's difficult to notice anything on your screen with the backlight off, but everything is still there, just highly difficult to see. One thing I just read is use a flashlight to try to see it better, but not sure what else can be done to test.

Try using a different monitor, seems it sounds like your video or mobo is going to commit suicide...check for updated drivers too! but if it is just your monitor, buy a new one recycle the old.
