Fujitsu Lifebook screen goes black when booting into Window 7
Posted on 2011-09-08
Have a client with a Fujitsu Lifebook A series Laptop that I recently upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate for them.
After a month or two the screen decided to start going black after starting into Windows (after Windows logo splash). It functions totally fine, I can log into it remotely and work on it but screen always black. It is Intel Core 2 Duo with Intel 965 chipset. I have repeatedly tried to remove the display adapters (when I do, the screen appears briefly.. then goes black again) and drivers. I have also removed any Intel chipset drivers, too and reinstalled latest version from web.
Now, I have removed completely again and told Windows NOT to automatically install any drivers. To no avail. Screen still black.
I am currently checking and double-checking my work and would really appreciate some help. Driving me crazy as I don't think it's hardware related. Seems to be totally software driven.
