Default HP TC1100 screen goes blank

Hi
I recently reinstailed Windows XP Tablet pc with SP3 on my TC1100, now after a random amount of time the screen goes blank.

i have updated the graphics card drivers and disabled the power saving optons, also if i connect an external monitor that works fine even when the main screen goes blank.

the only way to get the screen back on is to reboot.

if i boot into safe mode the screen works fine

anybody got any ideas???

Turn off the screensaver [I know it sounds weird] Then Uninstall the driver for the graphics card and shut down the computer, make sure you shut it down. Then turn on the computer and do not install the driver from an unknown source, download from the manufacturers site:

Report back when you are done. Thanks!
