Specs: Windows 7
A few days ago my laptop screen went black. After hard re-boot, managed to get screen on by pressing fn + f6 buttons. When it comes on it flashes on and off at first, then it stays on till i log off. On start up it does it all over again. Someone suggested a problem with the bios, but as i am not an experienced user, dont know exactly what this means. Can anyone help me? Thank you.

What does the f6 button signify here?

This could be a hardware problem, or malware, but I would start with the drivers. Update them in Device Manager.

Thank you paul 1149.I have tried this but when i log off, and try to update again, the screen is black again. Looked in my emachines booklet and it said the f6 button was to turn the monitor on and off. Thought it worth a try to see if i had inadvertantly turned it off.
