Black screen can be caused due to a many reason sometimes it could be due to issue with the display, update with the graphic update, issue between the connection of display or video adapter or by just upgrading to a new feature and last could happen just like that out of the blue. What so ever may be the reason behind this issue there are several ways by which you can determine what the cause is and how you can resolve a black screen.

Now, I will help you with sets of instructions which you need to follow on how to troubleshoot and fix black screen problem on your device.

If a black screen appears even before you could sign in your account could be due to connection issue between the display and the computer. In such situation you need to recheck the connection and make sure that the cables are precisely connected, also the monitor is turned ON.  You may also need to check if there are any warning lights that might be displayed on the monitor. Try switching the connection using a different port or a different cable also move the mouse or try to press any key on the keyboard to wake up the display. Sometimes a driver update could include changes which can send the video signals to the wrong port.

If your Pc has an integrated graphic card you need to switch to embedded video processor to confirm that there is a problem with the graphic card.

Most importantly when using an external monitor you need to check the on- board monitor settings, recheck and increase monitor brightness. When checking the monitor settings do check the input source to make sure that you sure using the correct input.

Lastly do check that the monitor is working properly by connecting it to a different computer to make sure that you are not dealing with a broken display.


  • Problem while detecting display


You may see a black screen as an outcome of window 10 losing its connection with the display. To fix this you need to Press together the window key along with Ctrl+Shift+B which is a shortcut key that restart the video driver and also refreshes the connection with the monitor. In case you are using a window 10 tablet you can press simultaneously the volume up and volume down button three times. As a confirmation that the window 10 is responding to the command you will hear a beep sound.


  • Disconnect superfluous peripherals devices


Disconnect all the peripherals such as printer’s camera’s removable drives, Bluetooth and other USB devices from your computer. Once you have disconnected all the unrequired devices you need to restart your computer and if the issue is resolved then it is sure that the issue is with one of your peripherals.
