View Full Version : G751JL-DS7 Screen not Waking or Turning On after Sleep/Hibernate

02-22-2016, 08:09 PM
Hello All,

First, I admit I do not know if I have posted this in the correct Forum or not. I have a G751JL-DS71 with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 956M Display Adapter, so I assumed I could post in the G751 series Forum. If I posted in wrong location, please direct me to the more appropriate forum.

Second, I am having difficulty in explaining the problem and therefore cannot find relevant replies either from Google searches or searches in this forum. Essentially, the past couple of days my "screen" will not wake up after sleeping/hibernating. I push the "power" button as normal, I receive the ROG splash screen, my keyboard lights turn on, I hear the HDD spin up, then the screen goes black, keyboard lights finally turn off, and HDD is silent. I have tried hitting several keys, tapping Touch Pad, anything to indicate I want the laptop to to wake up. On a couple of occasions, I have been able to get the screen to respond by CTRL-ALT-DEL. Other times I have to perform a hard reboot/shut-down.

I believe the problem started shortly after the most recent NVIDIA upgrade. Exact timing of install and start of problem is fuzzy; I had an unexpected stay at the hospital so the past week or so is a bit of a blur. I do not not know what information is necessary to help analyze this, so I included Device Manager the NVIDIA System Informaton below.

Any help or suggestions is appreciated. My laptop is new (SEP 2015) and I have less than 200 hours on this laptop.



Device Manager has the following Info:

Not sure if that's the case but maybe worthwhile you a check, did you try to disable Fast Startup ?
Control Panel->Choose what the power buttons do->tap on 'Change settings that are currently unavailable'->uncheck 'Turn on fast startup'.

Disabling fast startup has fixed a number of problems to me and I see no startup time delay at all.

JustinThyme, My apologies. These Old Marine eyes need a little contrast at times. In fairness, it did not appear that bright on my tablet, but seeing it on my laptop, well, I have fishing lures that are not that bright.

Any help or suggestions, are appreciated.
