I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum but I wasnt sure where exactly it fit in. Every time I close the top of my dell latitude d610 with a fresh (when i say fresh i mean like 3 hours) windows xp install, and I open it the screen is just black. I know it is a loss of video and not a standby or shutdown because I can still hear sounds from my IM program going in the backround. I tried tweaking the power settings and they are all what they should be for a laptop. I don't know what else to try. When I restart the computer everything goes back to normal but the second i close it, it happens again.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

Corrupt video drivers do weird things with hibernate and standby
Try to remove and reinstall the video driver
