I have got the same exact issue. Any luck??? Please advice if you get a solution to it. You can also send me an email on email@example.com
I am going insane. Recently, either after i have shut down the computer, or if it goes into hibernate stage, when i go to start the computer or wake it up, the keys light up like normal, the DVD drive boots up (you can hear it) but the screen is completely black. nothing. nada.
I have tried all the restart things i can think of. usually what happens is that i endup doing a cold restart by holding down the power key til it turns back on, and 90% of the time when it turns back on, it still has the black screen.
every now and then the computer works with no problem. seriously i dont know what is wrong with it. Also sometimes when it does boot up and goes to the windows vista sign in, i put in my password and it sits for about 1-2 mins with a black screen before the desktop appears.
anyone know if this is a computer hardware issue? operating issue? i have tried taking programs that are unnecessary out of the startup, making sure theres no outside disk, usb stuff or anything hooked up.
I have an HP dv2415nr
runs on Vista home premium with the SP1 update
AMD Turion 64x2 1.80Ghz
32 bit OS
NVidia GeForce Go 6150
