On Friday, I updated my Envy 20 to Windows 10. Once the update was finished my computer started up fine, however, my antivirus software (AVG) said there was an update and I needed to restart. I did so and after the restart and HP logo screen I had a black, bu luminescent screen. After a maybe ten minutes of the screen staying like this, I held the power button down to turn the computer off and then restarted it with no problems. I turned it off Friday night normally and it ran normally all day Saturday. This morning (Sunday) when I turned the computer on the power light came on and I could hear the fans turn on, but the screen remained black. Just black, not even a luminescent black like when I did the antivirus restart. I tried a hard restart like before but nothing changed. I left the computer on like that for around an hour and nothing changed. Figuring it was maybe a heat issue, I opened up the case and dusted the fan and the heat sink but the problem remains. Any ideas on what's next?

Shortly after a Windows 10 patch was installed (around mid October 2015) is when the blank screen issue had begun.
MechPilot's link above
seems to be referencing a null page or article that doesnt exist.
Malygris1, in another similar post
gave the folliwing article for help
which has great basic troubleshooting steps for a typical desktop windows pc however this particular model is an all-in-one touch screen type (where the desktop components are actually built directly into the monitor, which itself is a touchscreen).
It would be greatly appreciated for some, more, help with this issue (the computer powers up with only the power button light on white, fans start, and hard drive spins and can be heard being accessed occasionally, there is simply no sign of life from the monitor whatsoever. Also, regardless of which USB port I plug a keyboard into, none of its lights will illuminate (ie num-lock), not even a brief flash during initial power on that can be typically seen when posting).

If you see this, could you please help me out? My problem exactly matches what Transcend describes.
Thank you in advance!

I've got the same issue, mine is the envy 20-d003la, 2 weeks ago for some reason it worked normally, but after a reboot got the blank screen again. Reading the other topics its clear that the problem arose after the Win 10 update, i doubt its a motherboard problem seeing that my envy worked perfectly fine for two whole days 2 weeks ago.
Misfire can you tell us how do you got into the bios?

I have exactly the same problem, and have tried to follow all of HP's suggestions/links/videos with no success. It seems there is no help to be had with All in one PC's. Really disappointed with HP, as my computer is only 2 years old. It seems that the common denominator is the Windows 10 upgrade. I wish I'd never updated. Not happy.
