Windows 7: Lost desktop display

27 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64 bit
Lost desktop display

I just installed the Windows 7 64 bit upgrade from Windows Vista. When my desktop opens it is okay for a few minutes then it completely blanks out to a white screen. Sometimes I can access the task bar, but in the end I have to completely reboot the computer to get my desktop back. I went to processes and did not find any high usage of my CPU. I am completely stomped on this one!

Did you try installing the original Graphics driver for Windows 7 from the HP download site for your particular desktop?

Thank you

Thank you for your info. Sadly I uninstalled my Windows 7 software. I just did not like its format.

After any major installation or upgrade its always a good idea to double check driver installation/updates. Save you a lot of grief in the long run
