Did you mean to say that it goes black for a second and then returns to normal?

 

Your notebook sounds like one with switchable graphics.  My HP product loan Envy17-3002ea does that because I have the graphics power options set to automatically switch to the energy saving GPU when on battery.  If you don't want that to happen, just take the tick mark out of the box that say automatically switch. Then it will stay in high powered GPU all of the time, but will always use more battery power when on battery. This is a decision that only you can make.

No reality effect  as per Erico is guiding.

 

I have to set up the power plan at " High performance" though I like to set it at "HP recommended"

Hi
Its so simple if your screen turn off for a sec when you plug in or out charging just go to desktop and right click go to graphic properties and will open intel hd graphics page in general settings you will see refresh rate if must 60pHz you do that 40 pHz
Its ok problem solved
Thanks

laptop screen goes black when plug in for charging battery

I bought my laptop about 6 months ago and started to experience this problem about 3 months ago.  At first when the screen went black I thought the screen was faulty.  But then I noticed the following:

 

If the battery is charged and I still plug in the charger, screen goes dark (I can just about see the images but very dark)

When the battery runs out and I plug in the charger, the screen goes dark until it is fully charged again and I plug out the charger.

 

So basically, the screen is dark when the charger is plugged in.

 

I followed the instructions about changing the HD graphics settings and it made not difference.

 

Help please?  This is so annoying, as I have to wait till the laptop has been charged for 20 mins or so before I can start using it again.
