Intel UHD graphic 620 - Black screen one time out of two


Hello Intel's community,


I currently have an issue that started two months ago, I tried everyting I can but today you are the last that can help before I just put my computer to the garbage ....


My screen is one time out of two black when I wake up, restart, or start my computer. In order to fix the problem I tried to:

  • updated drivers
  • reset with manufacturing recommendation my computer
  • changed my battery

The keyboard is lighting up, and I hear the ventilation, so I deduced that this is a graphic displaying problem.


Enclosed, you can find the various report required.

If you can help me on the issue and live not far from France, I will one day offer you a beer 😃


Have a great saturday !

Hello @Mkhelifi

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.

Checking the Intel® System Support Utility report, we noticed that you have tried the Intel® generic drivers and However, we are not sure if you have tested with the latest customized driver provided by ASUS*.

The driver or software for your Intel® component might have been changed or replaced by the computer manufacturer (OEM). OEM drivers are handpicked and include customized features and solutions to platform-specific issues. In this case, we would like to recommend a clean installation of the graphics driver using the OEM driver from ASUS* to discard driver-related issues. Please follow these steps:


Step 1 - Check Windows* updates:

  • Click the Windows Start button. 
  • Click the search and type "Windows updates" and click on that option.
  • Select Check for Updates and ensure you have the latest Windows* version. 


Step 2 - Clean install of the Graphics Driver:

1- Download the latest ASUS* driver from this link and save the file on the computer: ASUS* Intel® Graphics Driver Version V26.20.100.7325*.

2- Disconnect from the internet to make sure the driver will not be automatically updated by Windows.

3- Right-click the Windows Start button. Select Device Manager.

4- Expand the Display adapters section and look for the Intel Graphics entry in Device Manager (e.g.: Intel® UHD Graphics 620).

5- Right-click on Intel Graphics and click Uninstall.

6- In the device removal dialog box, check Delete the driver software for this device and click OK.

7- Restart the computer after the uninstallation is complete.

8- Open Device Manager once more.

9- Very Important: Expand the Display Adapter section again:

  • If the graphics entry still displays Intel® UHD Graphics 620 or similar, repeat steps 5-7.
  • If the graphics entry displays Microsoft Basic Display Adapter, run the previously downloaded ASUS* file to install the driver.

10- Reboot the computer when prompted.

If the behavior persists, please provide a new Intel® SSU report and the following details:

1- When this issue happens, is the BIOS, POST screen, or Welcome screen visible/displayed?

2- Could you please test if the issue happens on an external display using a straight-through connection with a single cable, for instance, HDMI-to-HDMI (not using video/cable adapters, converters, docking, or HUBs).

3- We understand this issue started two months ago. Did it work fine before or is this a new computer? If this worked fine before, what changes did occur at that moment? Was there any Windows* or driver update? Or was any hardware/software change? Please provide details.

4- Run the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool to verify that both the processor and the GPU (Graphics Processing Unite) are fine.

To save the report, once the test is done, click on "File >> View Results File" and attach the .txt file to your reply.

Best regards,

Hello @AndrewG_Intel,


Thanks for your very clear answer. 

Despite the execution of your procedure described above, I had still a black screen problem, plus in the meantime, another problem appeared (my new battery was no more detected by my laptop as well as the old one). I decided to used a complete reset of my computer (I did this three times in a row to be sure) and put back my old battery. 

Thereafter, no more problem, I didn't really understand what happened but I think that an update of something else than my graphic card caused multiple problems. 

By the way, my new battery is not detected, I will deal this with the manufacturer and hoping that the next one will work.

Thank you for your help,

Mehdi K.

Ps: I will finish my story after receiving the new battery, in order to provide some resources if someone else has the same problem.
