It may be going into sleep mode. When the screen goes black, try pressing the space bar on the keyboard to wake it up. If the computer wakes back up again, then you may need to adjust your power settings. Try it and let me know what happens.

Black screen on HP Touchsmart 310, any ideas?


i guess your computer is suffering from Software Driver Conflict.

because in safe mode, windows does not load any third party drivers, but its own. so your computer turns ON.

it it NOT AT ALL any hardware related issue, so you dont need to buy/replace anything.

tell me more about your operating system and your computer details, so i can help you properly

Monitor goes black after boot up. I see the screen normally, then it goes black although the power light stays green


It sounds like a driver conflict or software issue with the video card. Try booting to Safe Mode by hitting F8 during the boot sequence. Choose safe Mode with Networking to maintain your network connection. Safe mode loads a generic display driver and will allow you to troubleshoot any issues with your existing drivers and/or software.

When I turn on my computer it acts like it is gonna load windows vista then it goes to a black screen and stays like that.


try booting in safe mode
if it does then you can try to determine if a driver is at fault.
Start with the video

If it won't boot in safe mode - OS reinstall time.
You may be able to connect the drive to another computer to take your data off.

For that you need to fix error on harddrive.
For that You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set frist boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
