Hi,my acer aspire e15 laptop goes dark when I plug it in , once I unplug it its fine, any ideas?

Once I plug the laptop into the mains the screen goes very dark, if I unplug it its fine again, laptop only 3 monts old, seems it has only started happening since windows 10 has installed, any ideas anyone?

    Your integrated Intel's graphics is switching from 50Hz to 60Hz. Just open it's control panel and under advanced options disable this.
    It's used for battery saving, but it's not that effective.

    Windows 10, especially the new upgrade has compatibility problems with Acer epower manager.

    To check if this is the problem right click the start window and select task manager.  Click more details.

    Select details. Scroll to epower tray and right click running.  Select end task.  Plug in to see if problem is gone.

    This may solve the problem ongoing or you may have to uninstall epower.
