    Screen not coming back on after sleep


    Since the latest update, the screen on my notebook will not come on after waking up from sleep.
    I can close my lid then re-open it later and it powers on, the keyboard lights up, I hear sounds, but no screen. I have to force shutdown (hold power button) and completely re-boot to get the screen back.
    How do I fix this?

    Personally, I'd go to the computer maker then download & reinstall the display driver even if it was the same version as the one that I had already.

    While I was there I would also check for any Bios update.

    I'm glad it worked.

    There isn't any diagnostic test to check that a display driver is working correctly so reinstalling it is really the only method of ensuring it is.
    - It might be that display drivers can get corrupted or, which I think is more likely, the registration of some of its components might have been lost - sorry to be vague, it's as much as I've ever been able to figure out about this issue.
