    Hi everyone,

    I am using an early 2011 MBP and today when I turned it on into boot camp mode running W7; the screen turned blank after "starting windows" logo appeared. The screen would reappear after unplugging the charger and I have checked the Mac side of things and it appears to work fine (Screen doesn't turn black when charger is plugged).

    I've been having the same problem, its just started today. It will boot fine into safe mode and charge but otherwise the screen goes black when I plug the charger in.

    I've tried different chargers and I am not experiencing the same problem on OS Lion. Any ideas?

    I would turn off the brightness of my screen at night. When I got an update and the system restarted, it reloaded the black screen with the power plug. Once you remove the plug the screen would reappear. Just logged in, reinsert the plug and then hit the button to brighten the screen. You should now be able to see the desktop from battery and plug.
