Solved Laptop Screen shuts off but computer is still running

February 12, 2014 at 04:51:40
Specs: Windows 7
I have a asus eee pc 1215p and as I turn my laptop on it works fine for about 5-10 minutes however after that time frame my screen goes black. Everything is still running perfectly as I hear nothing that's out of the norm however like I said my screen goes black and noticed that the "caps lock" key doesn't light up either.

I have drained all excess charge from my laptop and that did not work. I hooked up my laptop to an external monitor and it works fine up until my laptop gets the black screen then my external monitor goes blank as well. So, I'm drawing a blank at what else it could be.

If anyone reading this can guide me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

You need a new motherboard; the graphics system is dying.

Check the power settings to make sure you are not putting the laptop in suspend or hibernate at that time. In advanced power options set the USB to never.

Good chance it is a problem with the graphics card. You really don't have many options, besides either getting a new card and testing it or just sending it in to the manufacturer and seeing if they can fix it.
