Well try to boot into the safe mode.hit F8 on the startup and see if you get the same acreen.If its working fine in safe mode than you need to reinstall the video driver and that should resolve the issue.If it is still not working try connecting a external moniter.If you get the same display on the external moniter than its an issue with the video card and if you get a normal display on that than its an issue with the Laptop screen and you would ahve to get either of thses replaced by contacting the manufacturer.
Hope this helps!

JVC AV-27D202 27" TV has a black box covering most of the bottom half of the screen. It goes away when you adjust the volume or do something in the menu but then it comes back again when the volume display...

It sounds that the Closed Caption function [CC}, is not set to ON. Set it OFF. Push the button marked {CC} at the remote control once to get rid of it. If there is no CC button on the remote control, you have to enter its service mode option to deselect it. If you wish to get more details about how to enter, adjust and exit the service mode, check the site linked here. If you're not qualified, do not go further, and contact any technician for help.
Pull up previous posts or type in the brand name and model number to of your set, to its search box, and press 'Enter' or view it in Mosaic / Timeslide option.

Black box is taking up bottom half of the Screen

Check your closed-caption settings and make sure it's turned off. You'll probably find it's now set to text mode. The set is blanking out the part of the screen where text would be displayed, but there isn't any.

Screen goes blank

Your Computer enters Stand-By mode when untouched for more than one hour. This appears to be NOT A PROBLEM but the SETTINGS need be adjusted. Follow these SIMPLE steps to resolve it: -

(1) Goto Control Panel>Power Options>Power Schemes,
(2) Set the System standby to Never.
(3) Click Apply.
(4) Click OK.

Your Problem finished.

On Pwr up logo appears then LCD returns to stanby Black screen

I will assume the monitor is staying on during the boot process all the way until Windows loads.
If that is the case, then...
  • Start the computer
  • wait until the initial bios/logo screens for your motherboard go away.
  • Press F8 to get the Windows recovery boot menu
  • If you see the Windows Logo you would normally see then press rest and try again.
  • In the recovery screen, select SAFE MODE
  • Boot into Windows and uninstall your video card.
  • Reboot the computer the normal way through the start menu.
  • When your PC starts back up it should then reinstall the video card, and set itself automatically back to 60khz as default.
Let me know how you go =)
