I don't know what is causing this problem but would be
suspicious, it is related to a corrupted or obsolete
video driver.

Might be interesting to try to reduce your graphics
Hardware acceleration instructions
in the following article.

How to put in back of graphics hardware acceleration
(scroll down to: "If you are using Windows 2000 or XP")

If they improve the question, you should look for the
site Web of MFG. your video card
a updated driver Win XP compatible video. Or...
If your computer is a laptop... Search support
site of the manufacturer of your computer.

If you do not know the make and model of your
Video adapter, see the documentation that
supplied with the computer.

Also you can find info on your video by driver
go to Device Manager: you can launch
By clicking Device Manager on... Start/run and
type or copy / paste:
And then press ENTER.

Expand "Graphics cards" and right click
the name of your graphics... then
choose... Properties / tab pilot... FYI.

You should find the make and model of your
adapter display as well as the version of the driver.

If the driver on the Web site is no longer
current than you run...
Download and install it. In addition, installation
instructions that should be followed closely
should be available on the support site.

Once installed the new video driver... you
can restore your full acceleration.

Good luck...

    When I turn on the computer of gateway, the machine starts and the initial window logo starts and runs for about five seconds.  Then the screen goes black instead of blue and stays black for about 10 seconds.  A 'Power SAVE MODE' appears.  The machine is dead to all orders.  I have to stop by pressing the off button.  I can turn back and the F10 key to get in Mode safe mode with networking.

    The screen goes black randomly. Sometimes 2 minutes playing or until hours later. Sometimes it will not.

    Connect the computer to another monitor. If the problems are gone, replace the original monitor. If the problems persist, then you have hardware problems on your computer. You can troubleshoot the hardware yourself:

  • Satellite L405D-11V - freezes and the screen goes black when you watch the video

    OK, so I have the Toshiba Satellite L405D-11V, I had a breakdown, basically, the computer freezes at any time and the screen would go black, with the fan and lights still ongoing, this could be at the start, or a few hours using the laptop, so I decided to ring Toshiba technology support and they arranged for my laptop to collect and be expelled for repairs.

    I was able to track repairs online via the tracking service and was able to see what they were doing to my laptop, he said that they have ordered a part, it was underway and the repairs are completed.

    However, I got the laptop back today, I turn it on, all right, I start using the cell phone that everything is fine, so I decide to watch a video on youtube, and it freezes again, so I turned off now pressed the power button, hoping he wasn't that a large, I turn back to and load the video once again it freezes and the screen goes black again, after that whenever I am watching a video or a game, it causes the computer to crash and freeze as before the repairs. So there is always a mistake, but I'm not sure what to do

    Its still under warranty, I bought the laptop from the Comet, but I really don't want to send the laptop for repairs again and find it comes back with the same fault, is it interesting sending distributed, maybe see if the comet will replace the laptop as its still less than a year to buy the laptop, or it'll just be useful to save all the hassle and buy a new laptop? If this fault happened to someone else, I could use you some help, and if someone could shed some light regarding what could be bad?

    Thank you

    Hey Buddy,

    You changed something on the configuration after you got your notebook back from repair? You update a driver, or something else?
    What operating system you use on your L405D satellite?

    To be honest it is really hard to say why it happens because technicians test to check if your laptop is running correctly.

    In my opinion you should try to update the display driver. Maybe it's the origin of the problem of s
    If this isn't the case, I recommend installing Windows from Toshiba Recovery disk to restore to factory settings. These parameters are pre-tested by Toshiba and should work.

    If you still have the problem, you must contact the technicians again. I mean you could track the online repair and according to your assignment, everything worked well during repair, so in my opinion he should t be a problem to contact guys exactly.
    Explain your very detailed problem. I think that everything can be clarified then. :)

    You can access Mode safe? Repeatedly press F8 as you start? If yes you can try Control Panel - device
    Manager - graphics card - Double click on - driver tab - click on UPDATE driver - then right click
    on devices and UNINSTALL - REBOOT.

    Another method to try to get to the desktop (try in normal Windows Mode without failure)
    CTRL + ALT + DELETE and on the tab process EXPLORER.exe and COMPLETE the PROCESS on this subject - then
    on the Applications tab - lower right - new task - type in EXPLORER.exe. Safe mode is reached
    by tapping F8 as you start several times.

    Black screen problems are extremely difficult to repair and all patch is usually on a base hit or miss.

    Hi Byron,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community Forums.

    According to the description, it seems that you are facing problems while watching Netflix your screen becomes dark. I'll be happy to help you with this problem.

    (1) how you try to access Netflix?

    (2) you use Internet Explorer to access the Web from Netflix site?

    (3) you receive an error message?

    (4) is the issue limited to a Web site or with other sites as well?

    (5) have you made changes on the computer before this problem?

    Method 1: I suggest to turn off the screen saver and check if that helps.

    Enable or disable the screen saver

    I hope it helps. If you have any questions about Windows in the future, please let us know. We will be happy to help you.

  • Windows 7 doesn't recognize as input joystick, so constantly, the screen goes black

    Unlike Windows XP (not sure on Vista), Windows 7 does not recognize he entered occurs when I use my controller. For this reason, my screen goes black every few minutes, as he would if I left the computer entirely. How can I get Windows to recognize the controller as input device, in the way that my keyboard and mouse?

    I am aware that I can just turn off the screen saver, or remember to touch the mouse every few minutes. But workaround solutions, not solutions.

    I just want to clarify the step 2 for everyone because he left me scrathing my head for a minute. Ignore the real joystick listed in Device Manager and expand Interface devices. In this list, you should see HID-compliant game controller. Make a right click Select properties, then continue to step 3.

    hope that this clears up any confusion as if I had.
