Touch Screen doesn't work out of sleep

Q: Touch Screen doesn't work out of sleep

Hi Guys...I'm using the Lenovo multi touch driver for my X61T. With Windows 7 build 7000 the same driver when I wake my laptop from sleep the touch screen works. Starting with build 704x (i can't remember the exact build but it was the first leaked x64 build) when I wake the machine from sleep the touch screen doesn't work (both pen and finger touch)

I have tried to change USB settings but I haven't seen any fix. A restart of the machine means the tablet works again. Any ideas about a patch until Lenovo makes new drivers for Windows 7?

A: Touch Screen doesn't work out of sleep

There is a registry patch for better USB connectivity after waking from sleep, available from Lenovo.

Lenovo Support & downloads - Registry patch to improve USB device detection on resume from sleep for Windows Vista - Notebooks

How's the touchscreen working for you? Hope it's great! I don't like touchscreens because the screen can heat up and flicking your finger around on it can really burn.

I just purchased this laptop yesterday, 9/12, and it was working perfectly fine until today. I was working on it and the touch screen stopped working so I can only use the keypad. I'm wondering if something went wrong with the laptop or if it can be easily fixed!!

The touchscreen on my Yoga 260 isin't working. I first noticed this problem when the screen was acting wierdly. When you tap on your yoga a light circle appears and fades over time to mark or show where you tapped and when you swipe a trail or tail appears behind of where you swiped then disappears over time. So when I opened my Yoga these taps and swipes were appearing all over the screen ramdomly in a very rapid pace. So I restarted my Yoga and saw that the swipes and taps were still there. So I chose to restart the Yoga again and the taps and swipes dissapered. After that I noticed that the touchscreen became unresponsive but the computer runs as normal butthe screen is unresponsive. Before I discovered the problem I could remember dropped the computer a small height but caught it. If there's a solution to this problem I'm happy to listen! Thanks.

Screen was cracked so I replaced the screen. Now touch doesn't work.
There is no "Pen and Touch" and "Tablet PC Settings" in Control Panel. In PC info it says, "No pen or touch input is available for this display."
Touch DOES work on LINUX as I ran it from a usb drive, so it is not a hardware problem.
I have reinstalled Windows.
I have another Yoga 2 Pro and comparing Device Manager in both I see no differences.
How can I get the touch to work again?

A:Why doesn't my Touch work after replacing the screen on my Yoga 2 Pro?

try refreshing your PC maybe the driver is not working properly
If the touchscreen does show up on the device manager try updating the driver from there. (it will be listed under HID )
​Otherwise To refresh your PC Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
(If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)Tap or click Update and recovery, and then tap or click Recovery.Under Refresh your PC without affecting your files, tap or click Get started.Follow the instructions on the screen.

I bought a windows 8 hp pavilion touchsmart and touch screen worked. I updated to Windows 10 and it worked, only after I did a factory restore did it not work. I've tried everything with the device driver and another factory restore and it still does not work. I sent my computer in to get it fixed while it was under warranty and it was still not fixed. I resigned to it not working and I think that hp should have solved this problem before selling its computers. So we are blaming it on Microsoft 10, but that is not the issue when it worked until I did a factory restore and attempted everything suggested. I have a 350 dollar piece of **bleep**. Plus now my Mic isn't working and there aren't any drivers for me to upgrade to, anywhere.

I have the issue that the touch screen + front camera + back camera + windows button on the screen are not working.

I tried installing the display/graphics drivers but that did not helped.

I bought this laptop from Saudi Arabia and it is still under warranty but I am out of country so i cant claim the warranty as well.

someone please sort out this issue and tell me the solution or tell me what i should do?

Help will be really appreciated.
some details about my laptop:

Toshiba Satellite U920T-B919.
windows 8.1 update 64 bit.


A:Satellite U920T - front/back cam + touch screen + win button doesn't work

Since you mentioned different issues with your notebook, I think that in this case its advisable to recover the notebook back to factory settings just to check if all these problems are related to system problem.

Regarding the webcam: the Windows 8 /8.1 already contains the webcam drivers and therefore additional webcam driver installation isn?t possible. Additional webcam driver does not exist simply.

From my point of few the whole description smells a little bit like a hardware problem of the upper slide part where the touchscreen is part of.
The win button as well as the both cams are located there and probably there is some lose connection between the two parts (touchscreen and keyboard)

Anyway, as I said above, its advisable to recover the notebook to factory settings just to ensure that the system isn?t the troublemaker.
In case of hardware problems, you would need to get in contact with service available in your country.

Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7 on my notebook PC. I had to use a Microsoft installation disk because unfortunately, serious errors resulted after I installed from the HP recovery program. Consequently the HP drivers that were installed automatically with the recovery program weren't installed on my system. I had to install several of them from the HP support site. I got everything to work except for the Touch volume control, or the Volume Scroll Zone as referred to by HP in the service guide. This is the device located just above the keyboard that increases or decreases speaker volume when you drag you finger on it. I installed the Quick Launch button driver but that only applied to the mouse and pointer touchpad. I looked at the devices listed in my startup configuration. I saw the synaptics pointing device and the HP quick launch buttons listed. So is the IDT PC audio driver.  What am I missing? Where I can I find it to activate the touch volume control?

I have been facing this issue from the day one since I installed Windows 10 on my laptop (Dell XPS L502x).

Native Windows Applications like all browsers, office products etc. anything that is not from the Store, works fine. I can use Touch Pad scrolling with no trouble. e.g. on Internet Explorer, Chrome, MS Word, etc.

But the apps that come out of store or the apps like those which come pre-built with Windows 10 such as new Settings UI, Microsoft Edge. Touch Pad scrolling just don't work with these apps. When I perform scrolling the scroll-icon appears but doesn't scroll the content.

This issue is only with Touch Pad. External Mouse works great with scrolling on any kind of app.

Hope to find a solution here.

PS: drivers are all good on the machine and up to date with no warning or error.

Hello, My laptop is HP Pavillion DV6875se with Windows 7 OS. It was working great before a month, but all of a sudden the following issues came up1. The power button of the laptop doesn't turn on/off the laptop. I have to use a detachable remote to turn the laptop on. I don't see blue light on the power key, once the remote turns the laptop on.2. The quick play touch sensative keys above the laptop key board have blue light in most of them. But its flickering red for volume, and no indicator on the volume increase decrease touch region. Though some have blue indicator, red lights....none of the touch sensative keys function at present.3. The laptop touch pad is unresponsive. It has its blue light, which doesn't turn red even if the touch pad is locked. I use a USB mouse as of now.4. Laptop has 3 audio jacks. One for microphone, and 2 for headphone. The external speaker doesnt have any sound, so i have to plug in earphone everytime to listen anything. In control panel --> under sound --> playback ---> i see speakers and realtek digital output ---> both show green oscillating bars when an audio is played. But the volume key in quick play tab is flickering red all the time. The laptop is fully functional. But it would be great if the problems mentioned above gets fixed. Sincerely

I've bough a Dell Inspiron 1564 with win7 home premium x64 last month and everything was fine until a few days ago, when sleep mode stopped working. When I close my lid and open it up after some time there are 2 things that might happen:
1. The screen is just black, all the buttons are lit, I hear the fan, but no reaction at all. So I just forcibly turn off and turn it on again.
2. After opening the lid, nothing happens, when I try to turn it on, it loads up, but informs me that windows has not shut down properly last time (or something like that).

Could you please help me with this issue. Basically whenever I want to put my PC to sleep or hibernate, the monitor goes black but the computer keeps running. I can hear at least one HDD power down, but the rest of the hardware keeps going, all the fans (CPU, GPU, case), lights etc. I can try clicking the mouse buttons, pushing some keys - nothing; it will keep running until I reset it or cut the power off.
Also, sometimes, when I try to put it to sleep and it works, the problem is that it doesn't stay asleep for too long and it turns on by itself after 5-30mins. 
I had suspected it was a messed up Windows, but recently I also formatted my drive and installed a clean Windows and the issue is still there. So I suspect either some program preventing sleep/hibernate or a faulty hardware (if it's possible, because I really don't know how it works).

Even if I go through the start menu and select 'Stand By' it still doesn't work.

I have a Samsung series 7 Slate, which works great and is really fast with Windows 8. But with one piece of software the touch screen doesn't work, the menu items will light up but nothing happens when you press them. If I use a mouse it works fine and as it should. I don't think it's the software because I also used it on a HP 500 Slate and the touchscreen worked fine on that.

If anyone has any ideas for a solution to this problem I would much appreciate it.

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Mouse works but touch screen doesn't!

There is a bit of a glitch when using older touchscreen hardware with windows 8.

Nearly all older touchscreen hardware is implemented as an mouse emulator. So when pressing on the screen it simulates a mouse click.

Windows 8 makes use of the touchscreen interface rather than the mouse interface for touchscreens, and the driver it installed for your touchscreen (if it installed one) may not be working too well with the hardware. If you install a driver separately for that touchscreen you may get back the mouse emulation for the touchscreen, but then some of the better options like gestures and sweep scrolling may not work well or at all in windows 8.

So what you really need is a touchscreen driver that is really a touchscreen driver (not a mouse emulator driver) for that model of touchscreen on your slate. If you know the touchscreen manufacturer you can maybe find a beta on their site for Windows 8? Find the touchscreen device in the hardware control panel and look up it's VID and PID to find the manufacturer if the driver page doesn;t already tell you. (There is a website somewhere that'll look up the VID/PID and tell you what the product and manufacturer is)

But.. may be slim chance. If not, try finding the normal windows 7 touchscreen drivers for it, that may help some, though not guarantee it'll be fully functional.

Hello, my computer (an 8510w HP laptop) doesn't play sound after returning from sleep mode (didn't test with hibernation but would suspect similar). The computer thinks it is and shows everything is well when checking the device manager and testing sound it will show the volume output for the played sound. So I'm curious if anyone has any ideas as to how this works.

Now I may have solved my problem, or learned more about it when I did the following:

Rightclicked on the speaker icon => Playback Devices => Opened Speakers => Advanced tab => Changed the sound quality; I got a message saying another program was using the speakers at the moment and asked me if I wanted to stop it. I said yes and the sound began working again as normal. I then got a message from S proxy I believe, which is either something I don't know of or its part of the Saver2 program for pandora.

Anyway that's what I know, any thoughts?

A:Sound doesn't work after sleep mode

After looking into this a bit I found a few people were able ot solve this problem by disabling Driver Level Enhancements.

Came across my first major problem. When I try to go into sleep mode (either through the Start menu or pressing the power button), the hard drive light blinks for a second then the screen goes black. BUT... my power light stays on (should be blinking) and pressing it again, the mouse button... nor any key press on the keyboard will wake it up. I had to hard shutdown (holding the power key down for like 5 seconds) for the light go off and had to keep rebooting from scratch.

That's a major pain since waking up out of sleep mode is normally much faster and convenient. To make things worse.... it seems like 10 takes longer to boot up from scratch than 8.1 did. I've yet to see if SHUTDOWN works properly or not. Not a happy camper on the sleep mode issue. It worked under 8.1 just fine. Anybody else?!?

EDIT: Shutdown goes through a longer process, but ends the same as sleep does...... The power light stays on.

I'm using an HP Envy w/ i7-4510u CPU / 8GB RAM / 4GB Nvidia GTX 850M / 1TB drive

EDIT#2: Now SLEEP and SHUTDOWN appear to be working properly and Windows 10's boot up times are as fast or faster than 8.1 now. It's like a car and trying to clear out the lines of bad fuel before it runs right. Just some weird hiccups.

EDIT#3.... Now it's doing it again!

A:Sleep Mode doesn't work right nor does it wake up.

Identical issues here. Also an HP Envy. Also sleep/hibernate works sometimes and not others.

This will be a deal breaker for me if I can't turn off my computer and turn it back on with my status still intact. I'll (gulp) be forced to return to 8.1

Will post here if I figure out a solution

I noticed about a week ago that my system won't go to sleep unless I force it to sleep using the using the Function and F1 buttons on the keyboard. I also noticed about the same time that I tried to set it to use the ribbon screen saver and that doesn't work either. The screen saver looks fine in preview but it won't start up on it's own.

I tried working through the "Vista sleep problems" tutorial that was posted in a previous thread but none of that helped. I also tried doing a system restore several times and each time I get a window telling me that "system restore did not complete successfully becasue system restore couldn't access a file, probably due to anti-virus software. An unspecified error occured during system restore 0x80070005." I've tried disabling Norton Anti Virus and running system restore -- same result.

The rest of my system seems to be running fine and I really don't want to get into advanced recovery methods or doing a full restore of Windows if I don't have to. I don't know if this would matter but I did install a second internal HDD. It's not in any kind of RAID configuration or anything. I use it to capture/store video footage and I keep backup copies of several personal folders on it. I think sleep was working for a time after I installed the second drive.

Any advice to get sleep to function again? Thanks.

I just purchased a refurbished Inspiron 3147. The computer does not wake from sleep mode. Instead, there is a blip of power and then the system shuts off completely. Some things I have determined through testing and observation: 
- The power does come on momentarily. This is confirmed by the flicker of light in the power indicator and the brief charge indicator for a USB connected phone.
- The hard drive does not Shut Down. It just goes dead. I confirmed this by testing a handful of software items, including Open Office, Evernote and Chrome. All had recovery dialogue on restart, though there was no Windows shutdown error dialogue.
- This doesn't matter how sleep mode is initiated. All of my Power Management options are set to Sleep Mode. It happens when I initiate it by closing the laptop lid. It happens when I initiate it through the start menu or charm bar. It happens when I initiate it via the login screen.
There is another issue which may or may not be related and that is the touchpad. I'm given to understand that the touchpad is a real issue with this particular model and I intend to address it in a separate post.

I have a Dell XPS L702X (i5 -2.3 Ghz, 6GB RAM) laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit that has been giving me issues for some time now and I haven't been able to find a solution. Windows explorer works fine when I start the computer. However, after resuming from sleep, 90% of the time trying to open any explorer window (my computer, my docs, etc.) will not work. I can open up documents within their respective applications (a word doc by opening word first, for example). But double clicking folders doesn't do anything, neither from the desktop nor from the start menu. When this happens, I've noticed 2 instances of explorer running in the task manager, in order to get it to work again I have to force quit both of them and log off. When I log on again, it usually works again. HOWEVER, if I leave an explorer window open before putting the laptop in sleep mode, it works fine upon resuming.

All drivers are up to date, as well as the Bios version. This has been driving me crazy for some time, would appreciate if anyone has an solution. Thanks!

I am currently using an Ethernet cable plugged directly into my motherboard for internet access.

Usually it has the yellow ! icon and says limited connection. Why is it doing this, and how can I fix it?

Here are other tips for cleaning up factory bloatware

Every time when the laptop goes to sleep mode by itself and I turn it on again, the touch screen will be partly unresponsive, to be more specific, it is the upper part of the screen. The problem is only at the screen, mouse and touchpad are working fine. Now I can solve the problem by pressing power button to let it sleep and press again to turn it on, but I don't want to do this everyday.
Anyone have answer to this? Please!! I just got it a few days ago!
Thank you.

A:Dell Inspiron 3147 11.6" - Touch screen 'partly' not working after auto sleep

Hey, guys, I had the partially non-responsible touch screen (top right part) + 100% CPU. What I ended up doing was a clean install of Windows 10 and NOT installing the Dell Quickset. I repeat, DO NOT install Quickset. Hardware works fine without it and I stopped getting 100% CPU after idle and touch screen works normally. The only drawback is that I get an unrecognized component (ACPI\SMO8810\1), which I suspect has to do with keyboard locking in tablet mode. This isn't the 100% full solution, but I get the impression that the Dell power plan is not coded correctly. Any questions you guys might have, let me know!

so heres the deal i have a imo touch screen that i use as a main screen (dummie) and when windows 7 uploads it doesnt show the windows symbol the screen is black until the windows startup sound comes on and the main destop comes up . is there a way i can change this in DOS so my usb touch screen will work before windows boots. i have a VGA flip down that i havent installed yet and i was hoping to get the touch screen to work in DOS

A:can a touch screen work in dos

OK, if I read that right, you are missing the Windows 7 Boot Animation. I'm not sure if these links will help but its some place to start.
No windows 7 boot animation

Oh, thats not DOS, there is no DOS in Windows 7. There is a command shell that you can launch from Windows but its not DOS. The first text based screen you see during boot up is the BIOS POST screen and or your Video cards BIOS screen.

I have an HP ENVY TouchSmart, Windows 8.1 and 64-bit operating system and yesterday my touch screen was working fine, and today I turn on my laptop and it doesn't work at all. Keyboard works fine, mouse works fine. everything but the touchscreen. I thought it could be complications from a very recent update but It was updated on the 17th. Under my system information it says, "Pen and Touch: No Pen or Touch Input is available for this display". I don't know if that's unusual. I've restarted it, and tried steps to fix the problem like "calibrate my screen" but i can't seem to find the settings to it. In my Device Manager settings, I can't seem to find anything relating to touchscreen software, if there is any? I take good care of my laptop but I don't know the first thing about it. There is no damage to it.  When troubleshooting Hardware and Devices, "The driver for eGalaxTouch EXC7910-1037-11.01.01 is not installed."...Problems found: eGalaxTouch EXC7910-1037-11.01.01 doesn't have a driver-Not fixed. Hardware changes might not have been detected-Detected. I've checked if anything neds to be updated. I dont know what to do from here. Is there anything that I need to install?

Hi, i had my motherboard replaced due some manufacturing fault. When i got my laptop back it wasnīt working quite well so i decided to reinstal operating system. I used Backup button and restored my laptop to initial settings. This got me properly working laptop with win 8.1. Afrer i upgraded to win 10 my touch screen stoped working so i did a little research and found some topics with similar problems but any of those  didnīt solve my problem. ? This is screenshot of my deice manager, that unknown USB is my touch screen ( it says: unknown USB device (descriptor request failed)). I tried uninstal this driver, when i do that my touch screen starts working for like 3 seconds and than it stops working again. By the way this is rare to see box called HID in my device manager usually it doesnīt even show up. I tried update drivers through windows update. That didnīt change a thing so i update almost every driver manually (i download all of them from official lenovo support site) . And guess what, that did not worked eather. I am not sure which other solution i tried, because am trying to solve this problem for quite long time, but i feel like i tried everything (even reinstaling win 10) and didnīt even get close to solving this issue.Do you have some idea how to solve this problem?Sorry for grammar mistakes.

A:my touch screen dont work .... bad drivers

If you can't get it to work I would send it back and get your money back. I wouldn't even play around with the guy he misled you and I wouldn't post a good deed done on his reputation. I have seen to many people get taken on Ebay and it ticks me off because I for one have had it done to me. I now by everything brand new from Newegg and or some place I know to be reputable.

Unrar the files to a folder on your desktop and open up device manager and right click on you new touch screen monitor and click update drivers. Then select "Browse My Computer for Driver Software" and then select "Search For Drivers In This Location" and Make sure the subfolders check box is checked and then browse to you folder and click ok then click next. It will either say it is updating the drivers ot that windows has determined that the best driver is already installed. If it says the later then try an Automatic update from windows update. Before you do though go into system in control panel and click the hardware tab and select the setings for "Device Installation Settings" and set it to these setting like below in the screenshot the go back into device manager and automatically update the drivers and it will search windows update as well to see if there are drivers available for your device.

A:touch screen on windows 10 wont work

I request you to boot the PC to BIOS and test the touchscreen in BIOS. To boot the PC to BIOS, first turn off the PC completely. Keep tapping ESC on startup. You would get a startup menuPress F10 to get into BIOS. do not keep the PC in mute. Touch the screen in BIOS, the PC should beep.  If the PC beeps in BIOS (system utility), the touch screen is fine and you are facing a driver or a software issue. If the PC does not beep in BIOS, when you touch the screen, there is a issue with the display/touchscreen. Considered as a hardware issue (service or display replacment might be required). Please share the product number of your PC. This will help get the specification of your PC and I can give further suggestions.  ****Click the White thumb to say thanks********Please mark Accept As Solution if it solves your problem****

A:Fan not turning on and screen doesn't sleep

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Are you sure you connected the fan's cable to the motherboard ? I've forgotten to do that myself a few times so don't be offended !

If you mean closing the lid no longer does anything sometimes there is a magnet behind the screen bezel that activates a sensor on the motherboard for this. Or there could be an actual switch somewhere that is pushed down when the lid closes.

I would watch this Video carefully to see if you could have missed something when you re-assembled the laptop :-

Post the picture any way please, it might help.

My wife's parents purchased a Toshiba Qosmio DX730 (PQQ11A model). They recently upgraded to Windows 8 and the touch screen now does not work.

The problem is missing drivers (the monitor driver is reporting as a Generic PnP Monitor).

I went to the Toshiba site and selected the driver downloads for the appropriate model and installed a number of drivers, including the recommended NVidia display drivers. There are no drivers on that site that seem to install support for the Toshiba touch screen monitor.

Are there no Windows 8 drivers available for this model? If not, is there another solution? If so, where can I find them. Any help very much appreciated as they have a nice computer and purchased Windows 8 so they could use it with the touch features.


A:Qosmio DX730 and Win8 - touch screen does not work


On the Toshiba EU driver page you can find the Win 8 drivers.
As far as I know you need to install the Toshiba display driver to get the touch function working properly.

I found this driver.
Please check if you can install this:

I have a lenovo y700 on Windows 10 and when I put my laptop to sleep, I am able to turn it back on. But sometimes the screen stays black and the keyboard lights are on. Such that the computer did start up but the screen doesn't want to.

The only way I am able to fix this is buy putting the computer to sleep multiple times and then wake it up back again and after once or twice it starts to work. The solution (fool-proof) is to hold the power button to shut it down and then start it up again.

A:Lenovo y700 screen doesn't wake up from sleep

Hi bouga ,
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
Checking on the support site for   Notebook IP Y700-15ISK I7 , seems no BIOS update needed for this model. 
Typically even on Win Vista and Windows 7 that issue with sleep has been related to hybrid features. 
Method 1 : You may try to disable it using the cmd elevated for the command  powercfg -h off . 
Check on this video link for the guide steps 
Method 2 : Setting Power option to High Performance instead of conservation mode . then manualy setting sleep on the start icon 
Continue to apply neccessary updates that may correct this issue but for the time being , you can use Method 2 as alternate solution if method 1 fail to correct it. 
Hope this helps.

I have Windows 8 x64 Professional.

I customized my power plan (High Performance) so that the monitor sleeps after 5 minutes of inactivity. However, the monitor doesn't actually sleep. The LCD's colors turn to black, instead of the panel/back-light turning off. The mouse cursor also stays idle in the center of the screen.

In the advanced power options, I've made sure sleep happens after 5 minutes, and "Adaptive Brightness" is off. I'm not sure what else to try, and Google has returned no help.

I was wondering if anyone knew what settings I could change to lock the computer after it goes to sleep/screen saver kicks in (like XP Pro does). I just realized that after the screen saver and/or sleep kicks in, when I reactivate the computer, it doesn't revert to the windows logon screen (yes, the on resume, display logon screen is checked in the screen saver), it goes straight back into the account it was in.

I tried changing all kinds of security settings but to no avail. Anyone know a way around, or if this is a common issue?


PS - I set my logon screen to not show user names, so you need both the user name and password to access any account (and no-one can tell how many accounts are on the system), not sure if that "setting" is an issue to automatically go to the log-on screen after sleeping/screen saver. Help...thanks.

I've also tried removing it completely and just using the plug in charger (not sure what it's called, it's the wall charger to the battery). I've tried turning it off and on multiple times.

hi, I know there are many in the forum who have the same problem as mine. 
my computer was running fine last friday. I tried to start it on saturday, it says it can't startup and need to repair startup. I did run the repair but still can't startup. I tried to use system restore to earlier dates, it still can't startup. The computer has trojan virus before and I tried the anti-malware from internet to kill them. seems that it create more problem for my PC. I have some important files in the computer that I wish I have archived. 
wonder if any one can help. thx in advance.

I have my screensaver set for ten minutes and have my monitor set to go blank at 20. That is what yours is doing. If you want to change the time before it goes blank check in your Control Panel under Power Options. You should not leave your screen on all the time, there is no reason. Let it go blank after about 20 minutes.

I use the On-Screen Keyboard. The reason is my brother threw a wooden portrait frame at my laptop, breaking my 1, 3, Q, T, U, and J keys. Those keys are part of my password, and I use them to type documents, and now a fan fiction, nearly every day. Usually I have no problem bringing the OSK up, but now, for the first time I do. I am at the login screen, clicking on Ease of Access, and the On-Screen Keyboard does not turn on. I tried checking all the boxes, and only High Contrast, Filter Keys and Sticky Keys turn on. My system is a Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit. I suspect two possible causes: one is I shut down my computer instead of restarting it just before installing updates (I was gone to a party), and two is some random guy who harassed me on a chat website could have hacked my computer. Please help.

Please help, whenever I turn my computer on, the screen goes black just before the login screen. The computer still works, as it still makes all the noises it would normally make, eg. the login noise if I type my password. If I hit F8 when the computer first starts, it comes up with lots of options, one of those is 'last known good configuration'. That use to work and fix it, but now it no longer does. The computer also works perfectly fine on safe mode. My OS is Vista business, I have an Intel Core 2 Duo processor 2GHz, 2GB RAM, 32-bit OS. If I go into control panel in safe mode and go to problem reports and solutions, it says there is a problem with my graphics driver, but I can't find a way to update it. That's my summary, if you think you can solve it, below is more detailed.
I use my laptop at school. One day I closed it (which locks my computer), but when I opened it, the screen wouldn't work, but it still made all the regular sounds, such as the music I was playing. When I turned it on and off, it worked up until just before the login screen. This would keep happening unless I ran it in safe mode. Eventually I took it to the school IT department and they fixed it.
Quite a bit later the same thing happened. This time, while in safe mode, when the help menu came up, I searched around a bit until I found that hitting f8, when the computer starts, gives you a boot up menu. I tried this and one of the options was last known good configuration (LKGC), I chose this and the co... Read more

A:My screen doesn't work except in safe mode.

To me, this sounds like an issue with graphics card drivers.
When you go into Safe Mode, hit to go into Safe Mode with Networking. Without it you cannot go on to the internet (Which is also why you can't download drivers when you hook up a USB Drive...I think it usually goes to Windows Update, but cannot connect because you are in Safe Mode without Networking).
Go to the site for your graphics card's drivers and try installing the drivers fresh.

I'm not the best at this, but I read your post and that's what I think is wrong. I could be wrong. If it's not the problem, then I don't know and sorry.

Hello. I use the Windows Live Photo Gallery as my screen saver on Windows 7. When screen saver starts, it gets stuck on this one image and doesn't switch to other images. On the Screen Saver menu, if I click "Preview" then it works normally. It's only when the Screen Saver begins by itself then it won't change images. Other screen savers work fine. Thank you Boaz

So I've bought a pen for M200 and reinstalled the operation system.
Now I have M200 with Windows XP Tablet PC edition, a Screen Rotation utility and Pen Button utility. Now Pen Buttons work fine with my new pen, but the screen itself doesn't. I mean, the pen doesn't work with the screen.

I have a Mice and other pointing devices menu in Device Manager and it consists of the following sub-menus:

HID-compliant mouse (Random DELL mouse I'm using)
PS/2 Cimpatible Mouse (?)

I believe there must be something else..
Please tell me, forum, what drivers should I download to make the pen work?

I have a Toshiba Tecra M5 laptop without a functioning screen. The original screen died over the course of a couple of days. I believe it was the backlight. The screen would go very dark, but I could still see images on the screen very faintly. I would press the toggle switch that syncs with an external monitor a couple of times, and eventually the screen would come on again. This went on for a couple of days until finally I could see the screen trying to come on, partially lighting one corner, but unable to turn on.

I connected my laptop to an external monitor and was able to get by with that while I waited for my replacement to come. I ordered a "screen caddy" from eBay, the same model as my laptop sold as-is for parts. Among the working parts on it were the screen and the fingerpad mouse, which I also needed. The "screen caddy" is unable to boot, but it starts the process enough so that you can see the screen does work properly.

The trouble is that when I put the screen into my own computer, I don't get any image at all. The symptoms are different from my original problem. I'm not able to see images on the screen, even faintly. I can see that the backlight does come on. I've checked the connections and cannot find a problem.

I'm out of ideas for what to try. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thank you.

The backlight is usually all or nothing. Did you change the Inverter as well as the screen ?

Please explain what a 'screen caddy' is and exactly which parts you have exchanged.

I use Nvidia Geforce 9800GT.
I installed the latest driver.
I recently installed Windows 7 (again) and now when I start Counter Strike I get this half screen and resolution problems...
I want to use the lowest res' (640X480) and I can't! But when I use the highest res' the game supports (1280X1024) everything is fine! But I need the lowest resolution and it worked before I reinstalled the Windows 7.

My original not-in-game resolution is 1440X900 (he recommended one by both Win and Nvidia).
What should I do?

Merry Christmas Team.

My little brother came home from work one night and now is screen doesn't work at all. no flickering, backlight etc. I connected it top the TV via HDMI and even that didn't show up anything.

How high are the chances that his graphics card has died?


A:Laptop Screen doesn't work, No Backlight

There aren't really graphics cards in laptops, they are built in to the motherboard. So, if it isn't displaying anything even when on the bios or start screen, it may be the motherboard that is bad.
