Screen turning off


Recommended Posts

I have an asus laptop and since yesterday the screen will randomly turn off whilst I'm doing something (usually editing). I was playing a video literally 10 minutes ago after just having powered up the laptop from sleep and the screen went black while the video continued to play in the background. I have to turn it off and back on again for the screen to turn on again.

Hi Stacey, I'm not Brian, and I don't really know what I'm talking about, but I'm wondering if you've tried plugging in a desktop screen to the laptop; and if the problem still occurs with that screen?

If it doesn't, that would seem to suggest a problem with the backlight.

Needless to say, be VERY diligent about keeping your laptop backed up at all times, while this problem is persisting.

What version of OS? Microsoft recently pushed out a new version of Windows 10 and I’m wondering if the power settings (sleep, hibernate, etc.) got changed. You might want to look there in addition to using an external monitor.
