    New drivers helped, but still black screen when HDMI connected


      Hello. When I first began using my dell laptop (specs below) my screen would always be black (never to wake up without reboot) when I returned to it after the screen went to sleep.

      Installing new drivers has mostly alleviated this problem, however nowadays I still get stuck with the black screen any time I try to wake the computer up and I have my external Samsung monitor connected to the HDMI port.


      Is anyone else having this issue, or is there a fix on the way possibly? Thanks for any info!
