Black screen at startup

HP Recommended
HP All-in-One 24 24-dp0014 PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Four days ago, I bought an HP All-in-One Touch Screen 24-dp0014 PC.  New, not refurb.  Every morning, I have to run a BIOS update in order to get the screen to work. It is black when I start up the unit, and today, it went to black about 15 minutes after I ran the BIOS and logged in. My only option was to restart the unit again.


I have tried all of the troubleshooting fixes recommended on the HP website. The BIOS option at startup seemed to get things up and running - until today. (Also, I turned the sleep mode off completely when I first noticed this was happening, so I know it's not that.)


The second day I used the machine, I checked for updates and ran all recommended updates, two of which were HP related.  i was already having issues with the black screen before that, and running the updates didn't seem to improve things. Is anyone else having this issue? Did I just get a faulty machine?

Install updates using HP Support Assistant

Also, check for any pending windows update. Reboot the computer. 


Let us also run a test on the hardware components of the PC

  1. Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
  2. Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
  3. Perform System Test > Extensive test. Share the result on your next post.

Hello, and thank you for your reply. I ended up having to return the computer and exchange it for a new unit. Whatever was wrong with it could not be easily fixed by me, and it was brand new. The new unit works fine. Thank you for your help!
