Closed Black Screen on waking up screen on WIn 7 Tags: Windows XP Windows 7 Last response: January 27, 2012 5:33 PM in Windows 7 Share gatorsoft April 8, 2010 8:08:27 PM Hi This problem started with XP and I decided to upgrade to win 7 pro. My PC has a black screen on wake up more times than not. Wake up is set for a login screen normally. My settings are screen saver after 10 mins then send screen to sleep in 20 mins, no hibernation mode, rest machine remains alive, runs 24/7 normally. I have swapped the power supply and graphics card with ones that work in the same model PC and no joy. Any ideas would be appreciated.

You need to check and generally update: your motherboard bios your GPU bios graphics driver and that assumes everything else is running fine. Bad memory can lead to that sort of failure mode As the article states, USB devices contribute to incorrect starting. Add-in cards are always suspect in my opinion. In one instance for me, it was the graphics driver that caused this very same issue. Share gatorsoft April 9, 2010 9:38:04 PM Thanks for the advice. I will continue eliminating components.
