Is the computer still functioning at this point? Have you tried restoring your operating system to a known good date? Is the Windows system current on all Microsoft updates?
If so, I would down load a free registry program called Glary Utilities, it is a free download and will clean and repair the registry for you. Once that is complete, download Malware Bytes, it is also free, and install it and run to verify there are no "bad" applications that could affect the system.
Start there first and see if clears the issue up.
Let me know.
Regards,

Why does screen go black and keyboard and mouse no longer work?


Hello,

I'm not sure what Operating System you are using on your PC. But from what I can see, you might be using Windows XP, Vista and/ or 7. This kind of abnormality usually happens when the computer is infected with a Trojan or Malware. Is your antivirus software upto date and functioning well? Scan your PC and clean it fine.

If this still happens, you might be having some malfunctioned hardware; Motherboard, Ram, Keyboard or Mouse. Check these carelefully to ensure that they are working great.

Lastly, if this still happens, your Operating system might be having way too many errors that it might call for a re-installation. Backing up data and doing a clean re-installation might be something to look at.

Please let me know on how it all goes.

I use samsung netbook nc110, it works normally until I play a video and the screen goes black and won't come back to normal. I bought it 9 months ago and this begin happening last week. Any solutions?


You can use an external monitor to test it. If the external screen does not display anything, then your GPU and or motherboard is dying. If your netbook works good with the external monitor, then your screen is dead.
You can check the operating system and application using this Norton Utilities:

You should try the cheapest solution first. Replace the LCD cable. These should be easy to find on ebay and amazon. My guess is there is a short in the cable.
