system freezes and the screen goes black or watch horiz lines

When you use my laptop I'll hear a little wink (could be in the 5 min or 2 h) as his and my screen will go completely dark or display horizontal lines.  This crashes the system.  I am unable to do anything.  The only way to restart is a strong power down.  No idea what is the cause?



The first thing you think when you have lines, etc. on your screen graphics/video drivers are corrupt and we normally recommend that you download the latest drivers for your computer from the website of the manufacturer of your laptop.

But you say that you receive a beep at the moment that the problem occurs, which suggests a hardware problem (loose connection, inverter, backlight connection while your screen is black?).

If it is not corrupted drivers:

If under warranty, contact the manufacturer.

If it is not under warranty, contact a good computer repair workshop, local.

See you soon.

  • 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,

    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.

    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. :)

    Whenever we start to use our computer, the screen goes black and the message 'Auto adjust is in Prgress'. Then, all of our screen is small and all the icons and pages are smaller than before.

    I tried restoring the system that works and that gets our screen back to normal but every day that this Auto setting is coming and we can't seem to stop it.

    Try this:

    Go to the Web site of the manufacturer of your laptop computer-graphics/computer card > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > look for the latest Vista drivers > download/install them.


    Change the screen resolution

    Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They appear also smaller, so more items adapted to the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items adapted to the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images may have serrated edges.

    See you soon.

  • At the beginning; After the Windows Logo at the start, the screen goes black and a POWER SAVE MODE comes up. I must stop button. I can run the computer as I am now in Mode safe mode with networking.

    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.

    I tried to reinstall Windows XP original but it would erase my files.  I tried to restore the last good configuration also knowledge.  That did not work.

    The change came after a Windsows update.  I have McAfee security and I asked Windows but could not use due ot a conflict. -C' is all this bad start.  Clues?  I use Negear.  No change when I hooked directly either.

    Botton line, I can run in SafeMode with networking; but it is slow and I can't make alll I have to do.  What does not load Windows?
