laptop blanks out to a blank screen

I need help, my laptop constantly just goes to a blank screen. It still is on but there is just a black screen. This happens at all times sometimes after 15 minutes or after an hour or just when it decides too. I have read numerous others having this same probably. Has anyone figured out what is wrong or our all these HP pavilions defective. My HP is so loud when its running its ridiculous. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: laptop blanks out to a blank screen

Try changing the Power Settings.


  1. Go to Start.
  2. Control Panel.
  3. Power Options.  Here you could change how and when you want things to turn off.

Also check to see when your screen saver should come on.

Re: laptop blanks out to a blank screen

I am having the same problem.  Yet to find a solution though!  I had a suggestion that it might be the power supply.
