Well it'd be nice to know the make/model, I can atleast assume it's an hp because of where this is posted. Some additional details that lead up to you wanting to restore to a prior date would help too. Also,if it goes black as you say,how is it that you could get into system restore? Or was that a typo? Anyway, here's my shot in the dark, see if there's power anywhere on the pc when it goes black,ie. hard drive spinning,fans,diagnostic lights,sound,etc. If it does, then if it has onboard video & you use a graphics card, remove the graphics card & plug the monitor into the onboard port. If this fixes the problem,you need a new graphics card. If it only has onboard video,then open the computer & see if there's a graphics card slot & install one if you have one that is the proper slot type. Don't worry,can't put the wrong kind in,they all have different connectors. If doing that fixes the problem, the motherboard is going bad & the video chip was the first to go. Now all this is assuming it's a desktop,laptops have built in video only & most have a port on back for an external monitor,which you can plug into to see if the same problem happens,if it does,the motherboard is bad. Post back with the additional info if this didn't help.

Laptop goes on some few minutes after being shut down.


you cannot blame windows xp because according to me it is such OS that it removes many problems of windows 7 and vista.windows 7 and vista makes your pc much slow and many features dont work but windows xp is free from these errors.actually you hear the sound but nothing appears on the screen.this is because your cpu fan is running which takes somes time to stop.may be some problem of the hardware especially the mainboard.go to any repair shop and just get it checked.

Laptop is working fine until the screen goes black


The problem of black screen can also happen in other versions of the Windows. However, the symptoms and effects of the problems in all operating systems are almost same. For instance, when a user starts his Windows, everything goes fine. But when he logs into it there awaits a black screen instead of the normal desktop layout. An average computer user finds it very disturbing and has no clue how to fix Windows 7.
However, the best way to find a solution to this problem is to fix the registry errors in your computer which become the cause of all major Windows errors and crashes. The registry in Windows 7 is a very important component of the entire operating system and it stores information about the Windows settings. If these settings are not adjusted properly then there start to appear strange computer problems such as Windows 7 black screen.
Here are some discrete steps you shall also take besides fixing your Windows 7 registry which is inevitable for safer and stable computing:
* Conduct an antivirus and antimalware scan. Fixing for malwares after a registry scan gives an extra protection to the PC and saves PCs from lots of dangerous infections.
* Start Windows 7 in safe mode and restore your PC/system to the previous date after which you received the Windows 7 updates. It is believed that some updates may be behind these screen issues in Windows 7.
* Adjust your display settings since the wrong settings may also cause the Windows 7 black screen also called the blank screen. You can do this by starting Windows in safe mode.
Follow all the guidelines and start from registry repairing scan for Windows 7 to fix Windows 7 black screen. The best available tool to repair registry and fix PC errors such as this is Reg In Out.
