So I installed an IPS display I had kicking around for years in my laptop, to replace the terrible TN I've been putting up with. It works great despite having never bought it for the current laptop I'm using. However, maybe once a week the screen will just go black. The laptop is still running; the power button is still on and the fans continue to blow but there's nothing being displayed. If I hit the power button, the display comes back on and I'm welcomed to the Windows login screen (as if it was awoken from being asleep). Sometimes it'll go two weeks without this happening, sometimes it'll happen twice in a day. Is the display simply incompatible with my laptop? And if so, why would it work flawlessly 99.9% of the time and go black at completely random intervals? If it was incompatible would it not just refuse to display anything?
