Yoga 710 14IKB Black screen in some programs with Intel Graphics 520 Driver updates

Q: Yoga 710 14IKB Black screen in some programs with Intel Graphics 520 Driver updates

Good morning! I wonder if anyone else has either experienced or solved the issue I am currently having with my Yoga 710. I looked for similar postings that may have solved this issue but did not find them so if I missed it, I apologize. After visiting the IT help desk at my university several times as certain programs such as Spotify desktop, Zoom, Skype, SPSS Amos Graphics (a statistical modeling program) would open but display a black screen, the technicians realized that the Intel 520 Graphics Driver appeared to cause an issue once it advanced past a particular version of the software. They rolled back the graphics driver and everything was working great until last night my computer wanted to update Windows 10 which automatically updated the graphics driver and eliminated the option to roll back to a previous version of the graphics driver. Now I can't use a significant number of the programs on my laptop. I could rollback the Windows update but that doesn't seem helpful overall. It seems silly to keep having to roll back the graphics driver when the Windows update seems to be forcing it to be more up-to-date. On an Intel forum it seems like Intel is saying that Lenovo has tested it and says everything is OK, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Any ideas or links to solutions would be most appreciated! Best wishesMandy

Preferred Solution: Yoga 710 14IKB Black screen in some programs with Intel Graphics 520 Driver updates

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


Hi Everyone, Lenovo System Update installed the 'critical' Intel HD Graphics Driver on our X1 Yoga (20FR) and during the install the display freezes and on reboot we get the spinning dots at bottom of screen. We did a system restore to roll back the drivers and installed them again via the download on Lenovo's web site following their instructions but same probem. Anyone else having this problem but found a solution? Thanks.

Hi ChrisPerry,
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
As I understand that you are facing issue after installing Intel Display driver from Lenovo 
If that's the case why not give it a try to update it from Intel one from here. And try to update it from Device Manager manually from zip file. 
Do let us know how it goes.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Hello I just asking if there is Spectre and Meltdown patched bios coming to Yoga 910-13IKB. Latest bios is old from June 2017, which don't have any patches for Spectre and Meltdown. Also I would want to have newer Graphics driver. Available driver is even older than bios and Intels own drivers are not supported. I was suprised that Windows 10 1809 worked with this old drivers.

Windows Update is pushing an Intel graphics driver for T480 and T480s that is broken on Windows 10 Pro 1803 OEM. The recommended update on the Lenovo Support site is also broken. After Windows Update has installed this driver, the screen goes black and I have a blinking cursor. The only thing that works is to turn the laptop off and on again but then after initializing windows I'm supposed to be getting the login screen but instead I get a completely backlit black screen that doesn't respond to anything - no cursor, no blinking, nothing. The workaround is topower off and on 3 times in order to go into safe modeuninstall the graphics card driver in Device Manager and check the box to delete the driver fileschange from Yes (recommended) to No (your device might not work as expected) in Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Installation Settings->Do you want to automatically download manufacturers' apps and custom icons available for your devices.I've experienced this on 2 T480s and 1 T480 in the last 30 hours, so I know it's a general issue. I can reproduce the issue with a brand new laptop fresh out of the box, not domain-joined. The driver that works is from March 2018. Any drivers after this date seem to produce the above issue. The issue doesn't seem to exist on Windows 10 Pro 1709.

Intel Core i3-2330M + Intel HD Graphics 3000 = Black Screen

first of all, my words of deep and sincere appreciation and thanks for this website. I use it, though only sporadically, for many, many years and always got very professional and useful help here!

Today I am inquiring about a problem that seems to be quite common and wide-spread, based on my own Internet searches: the bad combination of the Intel Core i3-2330M processor and the Intel HD Graphics 3000. During normal operations, my system works with that. But when using render software (POV-Ray) or attempting to play games, then I am getting that famous Black Screen. The laptop still continues to work, but I cannot see anything anymore. Only a restart helps, unfortunately. My online search did not reveal any solution, and having downloaded the "Intel Driver Update Utility", nothing new can be downloaded it seems.

I am speaking out here today about my problem with the hope, that someone here know a functioning solution. I need my system in order to create renders, that is my work. I just recently upgraded my system with that better processor, and it kills me now.

 Hi all,First post!  My Dad's Lenovo laptop goes to a black screen when starting up, so is unusable.I haven't seen it in the flesh yet but have started to research things for him and have found that 'black screen' shows up quite a lot for Windows 10 and Lenovo PCs! We were so impressed with my Dad's PC I've ended up with the same model myself:Lenovo YOGA 500 Convertible Laptop, Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 15.6" Touch Screen.Also labelled as: Yoga 500-15IBD Laptop (ideapad)  I see some people mentioning hardware failures and others device driver problems with the graphic card etc. but haven't read a definite cause/fix for this so far. I've just found this recent critical BIOS update for this PC which mentions the black screen problem:Software name: BDCN63WW Version 63[Important updates] Fix Win 10 lid close black screen issue.http://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Yoga-Series/yoga-500-15ibd/downloads/D...I haven't seen this mentioned in the forums? Has anyone else used this?If the PC always boots to a black screen I'll obviously have trouble installing this! I'm hoping that it will boot in Safe Mode or I'm going to have some trouble installing it?! I don't know whether to install the BIOS update on my own machine which is running fine - I think I'll wait until I see my Dad's laptop first which will be in a few weeks. Has anyone had any experience of this BIOS update or other comments on this?Thanks. &nb...

I'm still wondering about this... I've just updated the Lenovo Companion after seeing it mentioned in another thread. It looks like this s/w is supposed to scan the PC and recommend Lenovo updates - critical and nice to have ones. Initially the Companion was showing a critical update for Lenovo SHAREit and a recommended one for my BIOS. It says I'm currently on BDCN28WW and offered something like v61 and not the 63 I mentioned in my first post? After letting it update SHAREit and re-scanning the BIOS update is no longer being offered and still shows me on v28 ??? I'm not sure I trust this 'Companion' app!My laptop seems to be running fine so I don't want to break it updating the BIOS if it's not required. For all I know my Dad's broken one may be broken because it upgraded?! Does anyone else use/trust the Companion app?And has anyone else seen it change it's mind on recommended BIOS updates?Thanks.

Intel updates their graphics driver recently which some nice fixes and some additional performance for some games/applications. When I tried to update the driver, the Intel tool gave a warning about installing the driver as the current driver in the laptop is configured by Lenovo. I am wondering if Lenovo will issue a new driver with their tuned-in parameters.. The current driver is based on old one and it is bad that we are missing those new enhancements. Thanks!

Hey guys,

I thought I'd share my experiences for those who may have similar setups. I have a Sager NP8265 laptop, with AMD/Intel switchable graphics.
I did a clean install using an ISO I got from Mosharino's beautiful thread up there.

You MUST install the latest Intel graphics drivers, and then, DO NOT REBOOT, for you MUST ALSO install the latest ATI drivers (13.11 beta right now).
If you don't do both, you will get black screen of fun when you do reboot. BSOF. Not as fun as it sounds.

As far as upgrading rather than a clean install, if you upgrade, you will likely get the black screen anyways. So what you have to do, is reboot to safe mode after the upgrade completes (oh you'll know, cause all you can see if a black screen, with a mouse cursor), and remove both graphics devices (device manager, right click the graphics adapter, uninstall)

Then you can boot into Windows normally, albeit with sh*te graphics. Then do the installs as I outlined above.
After a couple of reboots, you should (..should..) have a functioning machine again, that doesn't even look like sh*te!.

Hopefully this helps someone who had the same issues I did!

Hello all. I disabled my Intel HD graphics (dumb I know but it's in the past), and was prompted with a blank, black screen. I read up on the problem, and it seemed as if though it was a common problem, so I kinda did some tinkering. I removed my graphics card as my battery was bellow it, and then removed the battery for about 10 mins. After putting everything back together, I had no success.
The monitor is still working as I hooked up an older pc to it to see if it still works (which it does).
Any tips?

Install latest (2015) drivers manually from dell.com (M3800_Video_Driver_7C6X2_WN32_10.18.15.4248_A00.exe)
Install latest (2017) drivers from intel.com (Intel HD Graphics 4600 15.40 2017 win64_154036.4703.exe)

RESULTS: all the same, screen goes black as soon as Intel HD Graphics 4600  is installed and remains black as soon as Windows is booted, no matter how many times you reboot.

I restored Windows from Advanced Startup Options each time screen would go black as a result of installing Intel HD Graphics driver, sometimes restore failed, and I clean installed Windows from USB media.

I did a fresh install of Windows 10 and everytime I install the Intel HD Graphics driver, the screen goes black.

But when I go into safe mode and disable the Intel HD Graphics and use the Microsoft Basic Display Driver, it works.

So I connected in Team viewer and remotely installed the Intel HD Graphics and the screen still went black but was still okay in Team viewer.

Any fix for this? I want the GT 820m to work as well.

Help, I have been trying to solve this issue for some time now, the problem is that my screen turns black on startup after the microsoft recommended graphics driver installation? what do I do?

A:My screen turns black after the recommended intel hd graphics install

Is there any CD for installation on the driver.

If yes, do use the manufacturer driver file.

Most windows driver are common, "generic", and your card my not able to use generic.

Google search for the driver, especially on the manufacturer website.
This is most common, to many manufacturer to add updated drivers in the website, as this is recommended.
And they may also upload new drivers.

Windows driver may not be able to use, due to the "generic" as at the point of Windows installation.

The problem started in December when Windows 10 updated itself. The screen simply turns black after booting. (Dell symbol appears but black after)
I have found a couple of things out:
- laptop screen works if Intel graphics are disabled
- external screen works on hdmi
- I can access BIOS screen
I have clean installed Windows 10 several times with no success even when upgrading drivers. I have also tried a clean install of Windows 8.1 (which never had an issue before I upgraded) however this also gives the same issue.
I have updated and reset the BIOS with no success.
The laptop also has an nVidia graphics card also but I don't think it is at fault
I'm pretty much out of ideas as to what to try next!
Any help is much appreciated

Hello everybody,
I have a Dell XPS 13 9350 with an Intel HD Iros 540 graphics card.
Every worked nicely until an automatic update turned my screen black. After reinstalling Windows 10 from scratch, I discovered that with the generic graphics driver provided by Windows the screen works, but any specific driver for my card turns the screen black. I tried, with no success, in this order:

All the versions of the graphics driver found on the Dell website, A07, 29 Dec 2016, A06 07, Sep 2016, A05 29, Jun 2016, A04 14, Apr 2016
The latest driver found in the Intel website (

None of these works. As soon as any of these drivers are installed, the screen turns black. Upon reboot, the screen stays black in the login screen.
The only fix I found so far is to remove the driver completely, and use the default graphics driver of Windows. I also had to disable automatic driver updates, otherwise the screen would turn black again upon reinstallation of the driver.
What are my options? Is there any diagnostic information I can provide that can help me troubleshoot the problem? I am a Linux user and I know very little about Windows.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

We have a number of Dell E5470s which have Intel HD Graphics 520 chips. Since upgrading the computers to Windows 10 version 1703 (Creators Edition), when the computers are undocked (E Port Replicator), 99% of the time the built-in display will go entirely black or, black with the mouse pointer flashing. The computer will remain in that state until the computer is re-docked. Once re-docked the computer display will work as expected. This is not an issue when the dock is eliminated; connect and disconnect monitor from the VGA port on the computer.
The laptop has the latest bios (1.44.4), latest video drivers from Dell ( and Synaptics VMM3320 MST Hub Firmware (3.10.3).
I have contacted Dell support and they confirmed that this is not a hardware issue. I was fairly certain of that going in since this issue is consistent with multiple E5470s and multiple EPort Replicators and EPort Plus Replicators. Dell support then had me contact the Dell Software and Driver Division and they too said it was not a hardware issue, but would not help me try to resolve this issue or tell me if this was a known issue or if anything was being done to try to resolve this issue.
I would appreciate suggestions you might have to help resolve this problem.

Hi,      I bought my Lenovo YOGA 530-14IKB 3 months back, it worked fine, but I started to notice that bottom right quarter of the touch screen is not working, It is working when screen is at exact 90 degrees in laptop mode but when I tilt the screen back by some 10-15 degrees the bottom right part of the touch screen is not working. The lenovo pen is working fine on this section of screen. Facing same issue in tablet mode also. I don't think this is software issue, maybe the connection at the  hinge got screwed up. The laptop is still under warranty. All the Drivers are up to date. Can I get a replacement if I go to service center or is this a software issue which can be solved ?

I had installed the newest driver version (released on 2017/10/02) for Intel HD Graphics 520. With this driver installed, everytime I played any video on YouTube, Facebook or sometimes even when I played a DVD, the blue screen (BSoD) appeared saying the graphics driver failed. I installed the driver the standard way - through Lenovo System Update. When I downgraded back to my previously installed driver (released on 2015/10/28), it was fixed and no crash happened ever since. My question is, if you guys experienced the same issue, and what version of driver worked for you. Because the version relesed in 2015 works quite well, but is kind of obsolete, so some games run much slower than when I tried the newer driver (that crashed, on the other hand, on YouTube). My notebook:Lenovo ThinkPad L560Windows 7 Professional 64-bitIntel Core i5-6200U CPU 2.30 GHz16 GB RAMHDD SSD 250 GB TOSHIBA THNSFJ256GCSU Candus

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit , SP1
Processor: Intel Core i3-2330M [email protected] GHz
Graphics: Intel HD 3000 & GeForce GT540M (2GB)

So a few days ago when I tried to update the Intel HD 3000 through the Device Manager, a better version was found and started installing it. Suddenly the screen turned to black!
I turned off the laptop and booted in safe mode. I opened Device Manager again and I saw that Intel HD 3000 was replaced by "Standard VGA Adapter"...So I uninstalled it and rebooted again in safe mode and Intel HD 3000 was installed automatically. But the problem was not solved and the same would happen if I tried to update again the Intel HD card through Device Manager.
Generally I have googled very much about this problem but no results. I have downloaded the driver from Intel website to try it manually and again it fails to install.

But here is where it gets more strange:

Nvidia card is supposed to be up-to-date since when I click in Device manager to search online for drivers the message says there is not newer version. But there is not even a sign in my laptop that it is "alive".

I have a Yoga 14 20FY thinkpad. After battling all day with the track pad not working (at work without Internet)... I went to update the device drivers (when I got home) from lenovo's website. As everything is updating - it tells me to not reboot it or power it off because it will damage my machine... And then, it goes ahead and does it itself. The shutting down screen pops up - and that's the last my screen has worked. Period. The keyboard is lighting up so I know it's turning on and off, but that's it. No screen. F11 on a reboot doesn't do anything, either. I wish I were more helpful, I am posting from my cell phone, and I am so frustrated.

strange this is. Its a notebook with an INtell 3000 and a Radeon vid card. He says that Device Manager says there is a warning icon next to Radeon, but i never touched that one?

I would use System Restore and restore to a point before you updated the Intel driver. That may cure the problem.

Somehow I fixed it by updating or rollbacking the intel graphic 620 driver several times before. However, this time, I have tried several versions of the Intel Graphics 620 drivers including the latest ones on Lenovo support page and Intel website, none of them worked that I have to uninstall the Intel Graphics Driver and live with the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter for now. But then I cannot adjust the brightness or using the night light mode, which is also terrible. Any help will be appreciated, thanks!

A:Screen has been going black (twice) since graphics driver update

I haven't done anything else major besides updating the graphics driver (nvidia), so my best guess right now is that's what's causing it. What can I do? Both times the screen has died I've had to manually shut down, both were during very inopportune times, and I can't have it keep happening. Thanks guys.

Hey all,
having some graphics card problems and would appreciate any help.
I built two identical computers for my parents from spare parts and some new components just to give them something to use until they can buy something newer. Both work fine with the onboard graphics, but video play back performance is obviously low (very choppy). Trying to install an upgraded graphics card and does the same thing in both systems.

System specs:
Dell Optiplex GX260
Windows XP home, SP3
2.4GHz Pentium 4, 1GB ram
Onboard graphics is Intel 82845G

Graphics card I'm trying to install is a PNY VCG62256APG
This is a Nvidia Geforce 6200 card, ddr2 256 mb, 4/8x AGP interface
Should mention the card was new last winter and hasn't been installed in any other PC's.
When I install the card and boot up it shows the specs of the graphics card in the upper left corner. Goes through the normal bios and windows boot screens. Windows opens in a low res graphics mode, says found new hardware etc etc, loads nvidia driver from windows update and prompts a reboot. After the reboot it goes through the load screens again and shows the windows boot screen with the progress bar for about 15 seconds, then just goes black. Monitor says "no signal" and goes into stand by. If I restart in safe mode I get a signal back and can open windows but in low res of course. Tried updating driver with the newest one from nvidia's website and no go. Does the same thing. All other drivers on the... Read more

Hello.I purchased this lenovo laptop about 8 months ago. Over the last 4 or so months i have been having a persistent issue of screen flickering. The entire screen flickers regardless of what program may be in use. Initially i had thought it was related to either a software (like chrome or flash) and it seemd like everytime i shut those programs the problem would go away. I have updated all drivers and BIOS. Recently i noticed that this problem can be reproduced on pressing or tapping the area above the keybaord close the where the screen hinges are which led me to think this may be a hardware issue. I have not damaged this laptop ever and it has been kept in very good condition. How shall I proceed.   Thanks
