    Get into the power profiles and turn off standby and hibernate. See if this helps this screen issue. You can access the power settings from the screensaver window...

    Delete temporary files and folders.
    defragment your hard disk drive.

    this wont really effect the screen. Is the screen just black? Do you notice it is slightly backlit? Or just 100% black? If it is 100% it is probably a screen issue. If you see a backlit the defrag may help.

    Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen. If you can see an image, the back light is bad, but an external monitor will show normal video
