The display/ monitor goes bank if I disconect the laptop from mains

Every time I unplug my laptop from the mains, the display goes blank ( as if stand by), but the computer keeps running.
I have been told to reinstall the display manager, energy manager etc... nothing works. I checked batteries, they are fine... anyone has an idea what this can be??

Monitor blank when startup, have to restart several times

The problem is probably caused by the LCD's inverter.
I had problems like yours with some Acer laptops and had to replace the LCD's inverter.

Monitor goes blank if run from battery

From the mains?

You mean power?

If you have to uninstall the display controller , that means that your video drivers are bad, and you are running the native video drivers.
Get new updated drivers and keep us posted.
