    Laptop screen was working after upgrade but now black


    I upgraded to Windows 10 on Sunday and all was well. When I went to log in on Monday the laptop screen was completely black. It sounded like it was working ok but I couldn't see anything (not even the cursor).
    I plugged an external monitor in and that was ok. I tried going onto the display and extending it (as I do when I have 2 screens working) but that did no good. Have tried a few things but the laptop screen is still black.
    Any help would be gratefully received

    Have you tried putting your PC to sleep and then waking it. This works for me (blank screen on bootup, no cursor). What graphics card have you got?

    Hi - Thanks for your reply and I have sorted it out now. Another thread said press tab and enter my password (into a black screen) and then wait....eventually the screen came back and has been ok since.
    Appreciate your reply though.....
