    Black Screen appears only on Restart.


    Hi to all EightForums.
    today I installed Windows 8 64bits Pro with mediacenter. my problem is very familiar, black screen appears. but its appears only when I restart the computer. and in one thing I m in luck that in black screen if I simply press the power button (which I set to shut down) computer going to shut down and on pressing again its start normally and desktop appears only in 5 seconds. (takes just 5 second after the dell logo, and this is the charming thing I like on win 8). I seen many articles and threads that out of date video driver causing this. but win 8 install my laptop all drivers by it own. but as a precaution, I download again win 8 64bits driver from support.dell.com site. and again I m in luck that dell also have the win 8 64bits drivers for this laptop. but when I install this driver windows says newer driver already install.
    any suggestion would be very appreciated.

    You might want to setup hybrid shutdown then your boot up time will be faster. Need to enable hibernation for this. Search for thread in this forum about it.

    Please mark this thread as solved !!!
