    Question Nothing on screen

    Hi
    I have just installed Windows 7 on a laptop. It all built fine and was running OK until it did some updates now the screen won't come on unless in safe mode. I've tried updating drivers and changing screen resolutions but these haven't made any difference.
    Has anyone else had this problem and do you have a solution?

    Have you tried connecting a monitor? It might be defaulting to external display only for some reason. Have you tried the hotkey for switching between displays?

    Good luck!

    Hotkey in Windows 7 is 'Windows Key + P' - give that a try

    Thanks for your replies unfortunately neither of these seemed to work.
    I've gone back a configuration and this now works again.
    I'll have to come forward one update at a time to see which one is causing me the problem.
