After updating drivers screen is black

Black screen can be a big problem, but you should be able to fix it with one of our solutions. Now press the Spacebar and enter your password. To fix that, try disabling Fast Startup feature.

Keep repeating this step until the problem is resolved. If the black screen has disappeared, add the devices back one at a time to see which piece of hardware is causing this issue. After installing the latest updates, the issue should be resolved. In case the power outage breaks in the middle of the process, your motherboard might get bricked.

Unplug all external devices

Again, this is what fixed it for me, so far. Boot normally into windows default drivers, reinstall your card's drivers. On the other hand, you can disable the device completely through the system settings.

If it does not, this might be what is causing your issue. This would be the second time I have had to exchange the same laptop, and if the third unit I recieve does not work this will be the last Lenovo product I ever purchase. After disabling all startup applications, go back to System Configuration window. Expand Display Adapter section. Be sure to try all of our solutions and let us know if these fixes worked for you.

After creating a new user account, switch to it and check if the problem appears. When Settings app opens, navigate to Accounts section. Simply detach one of your monitors and the problem should disappear. That should fix the issue. List of startup applications will appear.

Especially the ones with the power management premises. Your computer needs good ventilation to avoid overheating. Maybe with one of the provided solutions or some of the future Windows updates address this. You can also try updating the video drivers. This post was originally published in March and has been since completely revamped and updated for freshness, accuracy, and comprehensiveness.

All of these failed to resolve the issue, indicating the problem lies in defective hardware. This is not a hardware issue. To see how to disable this feature, we strongly recommend checking your motherboard manual for detailed instructions. In the Windows Search bar, type Power and open Edit power plan. Boot the computer to Safe Mode with Networking.

If the latter is the case

Uninstall any power-related pre-installed application. In addition, be sure to check your motherboard manual for detailed instructions. Anyone else who has a situation similar to mine, I hope this fixes it for you, because I know how it felt to be completely clueless and helpless. Navigate to Display adapters and expand the section.

With that in mind, we recommend disabling temporarily the onboard graphics adapter and using the dedicated graphics exclusively. All the while, my screen still flickers and goes black randomly with sounds still playing in the background.

And the most common cause of crashes is overheating. Power Options window will now appear. Now, we can advise you to look up your motherboard and update it if needed.

Do a clean uninstall of your video card's graphics drivers. If the latter is the case, you may need to take steps to provide extra ventilation, or cool the air flowing around or through your computer. However, some of those apps, especially the ones which come pre-installed, can cause a lot of problems. Unplug all external devices. It seems the black screen appears after users restart or update their computers.
