screen.stays blank

I have a Dell 620. This morning when I turned the monitor on I got.a blank screen. Mouse worked. Asleep? No idea.
(I'm on my little phone). When no logon screen I powered down. Power up, says resuming windows and goes back
To blank screen.
Try F2 and do diagnostics. Everything is ok. When in diagnostics mouse and keyboard work.
I've tried ctl alt delete but nothing. I would like to get that start up choice to start normally.

After pressing many ctlaltdels while restarting I get: the last attempt to resume from prev location failed.
Attempt to resume.again? And the choices are:
Continue with system.restore
Delete restoration.data and proceed to system boot menu

Resuming normally fixed the problem

Did you check the event viewer to possibly find a culprit for the problem?

Yes, there was a hard disk problem. one of the sectors is bad. That's probably the issue but it should have caught it before that (seems to me). I mean, the system should have known I powered down abruptly and started up that way.

interesting that checkdisc didn't prompt then next time you booted back up. Keep an eye on it and if something happens again, let the forum know and we can help you out!
