Re: Frozen screen... !

Under a year? Still under warranty? Sound like bad video processor on the mainboard.

Boot the laptop, enter bios setup... let it sit there for a while and see if it does. If it does, then its a hardware problem and not a windows problem... but I am almost certain thats a video hardware issue... check for warranty repair.

If this is a new laptop barely months old please contact the place you bought it. You will have a warranty on it, you will be able to get it replaced under warranty. It would be pointless anyone trying to help you fix it as it may void your warranty

My laptop is a Toshiba satellite and after i login a black screen

Hi there. If you've had the laptop under a year, then you can take it back to the place where you bought it, and they can take a look. If anything's wrong, then it can be fixed under the manufacturer's warranty, which is normally for 12 months from purchase.

One thing I'd like to ask, can you see anything behind the black screen? I ask this, as I had a friend who had similar problem, but it was a faint black, with the cursor flashing, and he could faintly see the desktop in the background. I was wondering if this was the same for you.

If a computer shuts itself down suddenly after 10-15 minutes it's usually down to oveheating. clean the filters and ensure that there is good airflow around the computer when you use it. you can keep an eye on temperature and control your fans with this program

Acer Aspire 9810 Screen Problem

Hi No otto,
On the bottom row of keys, you will see one marked Fn, in a different color. Hodl that and look at your top row of keys. Should be one with a laptop screen, and a monitor. The little graphics will be the same color as the Fn key. Tap that once, wait, see if the screen comes to life. Usually that key is set to choose "Just laptop screen, just external monitor, or both", with each tap.
Good luck,
