Hi,

Yesterday, when I booted my laptop, I realized that the screen stayed blank (I don't recall if the "intro screen" came up first and then it was blank after that or if it was blank the entire time). So I waited until the hard drive light was not on, held down the power button, and turned off the laptop. Then I rebooted and it all worked find (and has the three times since then).

Anything to worry about? Or was it maybe that the driver for the screen just didn't load right that one time?

Thanks! :thumbsup:

Could've just been a glitch. I wouldn't worry about it unless it happens frequently. Let's hope that it was just a one time thing! :thumbsup:
