Screen Goes Blank then Black

  • I have the latest Version of Opera. 36.0.2130.74; When I open Opera, things work good. At random times my screen will go blank. It will then go black as if the monitor shuts down. This happens on my laptop only which has Nvidia 9700M GTS. Never happens any other time, only when using Opera. Again, no one thing can be targeted, just happens randomly.

  • What exactly happens?

    1. What is your workstation configuration (hardware and OS version)?
    2. Is it o'k in other browsers? First time using Opera? Customised your install?
    3. What is your "surveilance" configuration - meaning your AV and other hardwired programs allowed to mess with your system?
    4. Have you installed anything recently? Any piece of software? updates?
      Using hardware acceleration?

    Toshiba Qosmio x305-Q705, NVIDIA 9700M GTS

    No problems with other browsers. Have been using Opera for about 3 weeks. No problems on De3sktop. Have following extensions: Adblock Plus; Weather (from Weather Channel); Lastpass; translation app.

    What is your "surveilance" configuration - meaning your AV and other hardwired programs allowed to mess with your system?

    Bitdefender Total Security 2016 (also same on desktop with no problems)

    Have you installed anything recently? Any piece of software? updates?

    Normal Windows 10 updates (same as desktop)

    Using hardware acceleration?

    In the browser settings, Hardware acceleration is checked (enabled) in both the browser and laptop -- no problems with Opera in the desktop, only have the stated problem on the laptop.

    Thank You for your time and consideration.

  • kahogle,

    The Toshiba Qosmio x305-Q705 with a NVIDIA 9700M GTS has had an issue with power consumption and overheating sense it was first released. My symptoms are quite worse than yours as mine will blackout with any browser and sometimes randomly. The only fix that I have been able to get to work is to use Rivatuner to modify the power compunction settings to stabilize the GPU. The only driver that I have been able to get it to work with is 186.42. It enables the Forceware that Rivatuner needs to modify the settings. It is a band-aid for the symptoms, not a fix, But it works.
