Re: Another X1 display problem - black screen post... Hoping to get to root cause!

I have seen this symptom caused by the screen failure. Your solution is dangerous advice if the screen hardware has failed. If you uninstall the video driver, you will also lose the HDMI driver, even if this worked before, so now you have no video. Even if the PC resorts to the VGA driver, this will not show on an HDMI screen. This could make  life very difficult!
