My X60 Goes blank randomly... Any ideas why?

2008-07-21, 0:17 AM

Since the purchase, I have upgraded the OS to Vista and I have nothing but negative things about it. :(

I don't know if this issue is related to the software itself but my screen goes black after time to time and it's random when it happens. The fastest solution is to close the lid until it hibernates then wake him up.

 

I have been consistenly updating Vista and the IBM drivers and everything is up to date as of today. Unfortunately, some softwares such as Firefox still crashes for no reason. My other computer works totally fine with the same version. So I am guessing that this is because of the instability. Does anyone have any clue why this is happening?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

Don

Can happen in XP or Vista, there is a long message thread on this issue already:

Thanks for your post.

I've read the thread you've mentioned but there weren't any solid solution.

Does that mean there isn't a solution for it?

Don't know about any FoxFire issues, but probably unrelated to your randoms screen issues.    As for the screen issues, does it only happen when you are on battery power?      I've not see a way resolve the blank screen issue yet, that has effectively fixed it on my tablet.

Thanks for your comment.

 

The problem doesn't rely on its power source. (Meaning that my screen still goes black whether i'm on battery or ac.)
