HP ENVY 13-1000 Notebook PC series - Screen Background Changes to Black When Connecting or Removing the AC Power Adapter (Windows 7)

The Envy 13 model has two separate programs that control the display background images, and they can cause conflicts if used together. Common issues are:
  • Background screen turns to black.
  • Background screen cannot be changed.
These display problems may happen when StarDock MyColors is used to set the background or theme, and then further display changes are made using Windows Aero configuration. The StarDock display program is intended to supplement the standard Windows Aero configuration function, however, do not use both programs at the same time. Decide which program you want to use and then use it exclusively.
  note:
For information on StarDock, open the StarDock application and select Help.
As a related issue, to conserve battery power, the notebook can be configured to automatically switch display states when AC power is connected or disconnected. This power state change causes the display to turn black for several seconds and then change.
If you encounter this problem, running the Windows Aero troubleshooter (the only troubleshooter currently available for Desktop settings issues) did not resolve the problem.
