Windows 7: My computer screen turns off after the 'Starting Windows' animation :(

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
My computer screen turns off after the 'Starting Windows' animation :(

Hi friends :)

I have an MSI a6205 laptop, and have recently reformatted my computer to reset everything in it. My problem is this:
Ever since I re-installed Windows 7 my computer has been starting up, getting to the little 'Starting Windows' animation, then the screen turns off completely, with no back light (the fans and LEDs still function perfectly). The way I have been getting it to work is by turning it on, waiting for the screen to turn off, then tapping the power button and putting it to sleep, after a few seconds I hit the power button again to awake it, and the screen turns on and functions perfectly.

I know this isn't a hardware issue, because I also have Ubuntu 12.04 installed on the machine, and it works perfectly. It's just Windows 7 that is giving me this problem.

Is the power button configured to put laptop asleep (standby mode)? Or is it hibernation?
Default behavior is shutdown btw

Excuse me, but this thread was published back in 2012. The user, amightyboar, has not even had any activity since that year. I think it would be best to try it out yourself and if it fails, well, simply keep on searching for another solution. If that fails then you could try opening up a thread for any possible results.

I hope this helps.

Paopao: I have the same issue with a tower PC. Here's a link to my attempts to fix the problem, so you won't waste time trying any of them. One thing is certain with my issue. If you restart the computer the problem will NOT occur. If the system has been off (monitor in power saver mode) for several hours, the problem manifests itself. Does yours fail with a restart, or with a shut down and then immediately do a manual power on?
