Hi!
I have an ACER ASPIRE 5 A515-55G-55JF notebook.
2 There is Windows on the ssd but there is only a black screen in the graphics selector, nothing is visible.
If I set it to legacy mode it will show.
What can I do to make it through standard mode?
Thanks

    Hi Szaboi65,

    # Power drain,

    1.Unplug the AC power adapter.
    2. Shutdown the unit.
    3. Search for a pinhole on the backside of your laptop, insert a small paperclip in the battery reset pinhole, press and hold it down for 25 seconds. Then release the paperclip and try to turn on the unit and check.​
    ​Check this T/S and post the result.

    Windows has apparently been installed in legacy mode on an MBR partitioned SSD. If it's Win10, you can convert it to UEFI mode GPT partitioned SSD by following the instructions in this link.  .

    is installed in uefi mode and on a gpt partition.
    What I realized: If I install the Intel Graphics driver there is an error.
    If only the generic driver installed by windows is installed it is flawless.

    Good. Don't try to change BIOS to legacy mode anymore or you can cause major problems. Jack E/NJ
