    Display Won't Resume After Sleep


    Hi, I have run into an issue with a Pavilion g60-230us laptop that I can't seem to resolve. After going to sleep or closing the lid, when I open the lid again the laptop wakes up, but the display never resumes. I can see it kind of try to come on, but nothing ever shows on the screen. I am currently on Windows 8.1 Pro. The system is 32 bit and not running a separate display adapter, just the integrated Intel configuration. I have tried downloading the latest Windows 7 driver from the HP support page for the g60 but it didn't help. They don't offer drivers for Windows 8 on this model. I have also deleted the display in device manager, rebooted and let Windows find and install its own driver, but this also didn't help. Keyboard and mouse both have the box checked for allow this device to wake the computer in the power settings.

    I'm hoping someone has run into and resolved this issue and has an answer.

    Thanks,

    On the HP site, check for a slightly newer model of the laptop that has the same display adapter but has Windows 8 drivers. They might work fine. Their just not certified for your exact model.

    That does sound like a possible solution, I'm just not sure what that specific model would be.

    It's going to take some work on your part. Using your model number as a guide, go to the HP support site and see if they have a dropdown of the models. Using the model number as a reference, see if they have a g70 series or whatever. When you find something promising, go check out that model for drivers.

    I've done this on 2 laptops and I found workable drivers for most components.
