First check well that is not a windows bug. To do so try starting computer in safe mode and do system restore, or do a backup of your files and do a complete recovery if you can. If it is not a system problem then it must be one of following.

Remove battery and disconnect laptop from outlet. Connect it back to outlet with no battery in and check, if it works, then it was the battery.

Then start the computer in bios and leave the laptop on with bios page for one hour or so. If it turns off then it is probably an overheating problem related to malfunction of CPU fan. In this case the fan must be replaced.

If none of the above then most possible cause is a faulty motherboard, in this case you will need to find a spare laptop or motherboard of the same kind (check ebay).

    You may check power settings in control panel and see if somehow the
    settings for your screen are set to turn off or the power settings
    program has been corrupted for some reasons.

You can turn Sleep and Hibernate off in Windows but this sounds like it might be your Bios putting the system to sleep. In windows go to power options and turn sleep and Hibernation off but double check your Bios as well for a possible setting there that will put the computer in sleep or Hibernate mode.

My screen goes black after startup


Try a different monitor, I am sure this sounds overly simplistic to you but, I have seen in my customers have just that, a bad monitor.

If another monitor does the same thing, then you should try another video card. If the video in on the motherboard, there should be a AGP, PCI-e, or an empty PCI slot to put a video card in.

Aspire one with windows XP. Won't turn back on while in sleep mod


I've had spotty luck with Windows and sleep or hibernate modes. I would suggest just disabling sleep/hibernate mode. The options can be found under the control panel under power options. While turning off the sleep mode won't help your battery life, if you ask me, it beats having to power off the laptop by pulling the battery out. If you don't want to turn it off, you can try adjusting the amount of time it lets pass before it goes to slee.

Cannot start Sony VAIO PCG-5J2L /Goes to black screen only


During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.

If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.

If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".

Laptop screen turns black


In Windows XP you can disable hibernation by doing the following:
1. Open Power Options in Control Panel
2. Select the Hibernate tab
3. Clear the checkbox for enabling hibernation
This doesn't work in Vista however because the GUI for Power Options has changed and doesn't offer the ability to disable hibernation. But you can disable hiberation in Vista from the command line if you use admin privileges. Here's how:
1. Press the WINDOWS key and type cmd into the Start Search box but *don't* press ENTER
2. Right-click on cmd in the Programs list and select Run As Administrator
3. Click Continue when the UAC prompt appears
4. Type powercfg -h off and press ENTER

IF this does not help write back.
