I have been running completely fine the past few months. Last week a program required windows updates to run properly, so i downloaded and installed all the current windows 7 updates.
After being left inactive the computer will show a black screen and will not respond to any inputs. This only happens after being left inactive for a few hours and only at random times, does not happen every time (maybe twice a week).
- Power options: Hibernate, Sleep, Turn Screen Off - all set to never. (need computer on 24/7 for remote access for work) - Does not fix problem, screen still goes black.
- Updated all drivers i could think of, including video driver.
- searched forums + Google for someone with a related problem - Cant find any with the same issues or i suck at searching.
I had this issue before and i reinstalled Windows 7 and only installed the necessary updates (Hence why my computer was not up-to-date) to fix the problem.
I have not performed a restore because i need the updates for the program and this is my 2nd time having this issue, so a restore isn't exactly going to fix my problem.
I know my issue is with the windows updates since this is the 2nd time happening and both times i had issues after installing windows updates.
