[arch-general] Black screen at first boot

I have faced the same problem on several occasions (over many months)
on my laptop too. But in my case, I have found that high humidity is
the cause. And the black screen more frequent during monsoon.

When not in use. keeping my laptop in its bag with a packet or two of
silica gel solves it.

Subject: [arch-general] Black screen at first boot

Hi List, 

since a few days (I did not change anything, no updates, nothing) the
first boot of my machine results in a non-responsive black screen. I
have to do a cold-start, and then the second boot works as expected. 

Has anybody witnessed this too? A hardware problem?
