Title: Laptop Black Screen on Battery
Post by: TheLamerLinux on September 17, 2020, 10:01:58 PM
Hello,

When I boot my laptop up without the charger plug in I get nothing but a black screen. But when I boot my laptop up with charger connected it boots fine.

Without the charger I can see the boot splash screen but guessing when it passes the boot splash screen it doesnít take me to LightDM it just gives me a black screen.

Other distros it takes me to the login screen with or without the charger plugged in.

Hereís the computer specs:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3500U
GPU: AMD Vega
Ram: 16GB

Thank you

Hi!

Was the computer turned OFF with "Shutdown"? Just in case it's an power hibernation issue...

There seems to be an issue with Ryzen GPU... there is another thread on the subject.
A kernel and/or video driver upgrade could be needed.
