Get black screen on laptop startup

I am getting a black screen when I start up my laptop. Since laptop is less than year old, I think it may be related to something like the hibernate mode. Can anyone help me get out of this mode or suggest other possible causes? Thanks.

Can anyone help on this problem??

Can you be more specific? When is this happening, when did it start happening.

i had this with my sony sz 320.

fixed it by reseating the ram. try running memtest and see if it’s due to bad ram

Your problem could be a freeze up when hibernating.
If you battery is low charge it up.
Then disconnect the supply and remove the battery for say 1 min.
Then replace the battery and reboot.
This should fix your problem, if not go back to supplier.
Note holding down the start button for 5secs will switch of your laptop.
Hope this helps.

@ Sid450,
Thank you very much for your help.
Removing and reinserting the battery worked for me. :slight_smile:
