OK, so I have a buddies laptop -- Toshiba S855-S5377 -- he had issues with the screen not coming up after the Windows 8 splash screen. So he brought
it to me yada yada yada. I tried to restore everything and kept getting the same results.
Now, I used the Toshiba software to reformat the disk and installed a fresh version of Windows 8 (since it was doing it on the restore from Toshiba
and he didn't have any backups) and the same thing.
I'm a college student with a Dreamspark account so I went on there and figured I would try it with a brand new copy of Windows 8.1, same thing.
On a fresh copy of Windows, the screen will come on let you log in and maybe after 1-5 minutes (guesstimating) the issue comes back. It lets me log
onto the system through safe mode, however.
So I realize this is perhaps a driver issue perhaps?
Could someone give me something to try, I've done it all. I've even uninstalled the driver, it lets me go back into the regular mode and after a
minute or so a sound chimes then goes back to black with no mouse.
