Okay so when I turn my laptop on, it boots normally and gets to the starting windows screen. After this, the screen stays off. The laptop is not off, there are lights on but the screen is black. Something that could be affecting or causing this is that the laptop is detecting a "generic non-php monitor" along with the laptop screen. What would happen os that the imaginary monitor would connect then disconnect and the screen would go black when it would connect (very annoying). Soon after this the screen would stay black for up to 10 seconds. This also has been happening for a few days now. I don't know if this contributes to it but please help!
