About a month ago, I updated my HP G60-549DX Notebook to Windows 10. This computer is not used too often and I found out when I was trying to dual boot Linux Mint on it that the laptop's screen doesn't wake up from sleep when the lid is closed (sleep) and reopened (wake). It looks like it only occurs when sleeping and waking with the lid. Sleeping and waking with the power button works fine.
I have tried checking HP Support Assistant and HP Update for updates and didn't find anything, I have tried removing the display driver from Device Manager and doing a hard reboot, that didn't work. I tried updating the display adapter driver within Device Manager. That didn't work either.
An HP web page recommended to update the BIOS, but there isn't a BIOS listed under the Windows 10 category on the product support page for my laptop. HP says, "Installing a BIOS that is not designed for the processor or operating system in your computer could cause the computer to stop working." How could this be though? I should be able to install and use Linux Mint fine, right (keep in mind, I still want Windows 10 on the laptop)? The live USB I created seemed to work okay. It looks like there is a BIOS update for the laptop for Windows 7, however.
It seems unlikely that HP will ever develop a fix for my laptop, according to HP, "If you purchased your computer prior to August 2013, HP has not tested or developed drivers for your computer model. Some features might not work, or the installation might not be successful. For these products, see Where Do I Find Windows 10 Drivers and Software for My Model?"
Help is greatly appreciated to be able to get this laptop working smoothly again.
