Lenovo R400 not booting up / Blank screen

Q: Lenovo R400 not booting up / Blank screen

Yesterday I had this issue with my Lenovo R400 and I alredy solved but i want to post the solution on this forum for other people. The ProblemMy laptop entered in hibernation mode and in the morning that i tried to turn it on it didnt. I pushed the power button i see the lights of 1 and A turned on and off twice, but didnt show the boot screen.. The screen was blank doing nothing. Solution 1Disconnect the power cable and battery and push the power button 11 times and in the 11th push the button for 30 seconds. Connect power and push power button. Then you can connect the battery. Solution 2 (The one that helped me)Removed the power cable, the battery and the internal battery of CMOS and let it disconnected all for 15 hours. I dont now the exact time that it have to be disconected but i read a post saying 15, maybe with few hours if enought. Then you connect the cable and push F1 (until beeps) and turn on the Laptop to enter in Supervisor Mode to set date and time F10 and exit. Connect the CMOS's battery and normal battery and is all. WARNINGIf you reset the CMOS and the laptop have a Supervisor Password enabled and you dont have it you will be in big problems. Mine laptop didnt have it. I was luck because i didnt know it. Without the Supervisor password you cant set the date/time and the laptop wont boot again. You will need to change the MotherBoard. Or maybe you can find another solution but wont be easy. So be carefull about this. I hope this can help you. =)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi everyone, I've had a Lenovo Y510P with SLI 750m's for about 1 year and 3 months now. 2 weeks ago (around the time I upgraded to Windows 10). My laptop suddenly is unable to boot for the most part.When I press power, it hangs on the initial blank screen, with no logo pop-up. I have managed to get it to boot before, just simply by restarting over and over, but it's been 3 days and no luck now. It simply stays on a blank screen (no backlight), though the keyboard and power button light up. Here are the steps I've taken to troubleshoot:-> Removed battery, unplugged AC, performed "fleeting power removal" by holding the power button for 60 secs (have done this multiple times)-> Removed RAM, changed slots etc. When there is no RAM, the machine will continuously reboot-> Removed HDD, reseated-> Removed 2nd GPU. When the 2nd GPU is plugged in, the fan will try and spin every so often-> Unplugged connectors to wi-fi module-> Restarted many times-> Pressed the NOVO button, it simply brings it to the blank screen Any advice would be much appreciated. The laptop itself is in good condition, and has little physical ware. Unfortunately it's no longer under warranty, and I'm sure the cost of sending it in is quite high.

Hi Everyone!I'm Mariano from Argentina! this is my first post! everything alright? I write this to tell my problem or detail: i recently purchased a used Lenovo R400 Thinkpad that i like very much, i love the look, characteristics, processor, is very good, i put it 4gb of ram, it goes really well, i paid it very cheap. But I have a little problem (the seller told me about it and show me the thing): the display (lcd) shows a little horizontal line that comes and goes (3 seconds in, and 3 seconds  out), is on the bottom on the screen, but the machine is working great, the rest of the screen is working absolutely amazing, no problem at all, it's only that line that comes and goes, is a little detail (sometimes you see it and sometimes you can't even realize that is there), i take the display off but is not the flex i guess, i move it, and is not a question of move it... the question is: anyone knows what exactly is? and how can i take it off?If anyone can help me i would be pleased with that...  Thanks very much guys!

My roommate's laptop displays a blank screen when booting. The model is a HP dv6000. I've tried the troubleshoot provided by HP, which suggested that its an adapter problem, that the ram needs to be reseated, or that its an internal error and requires professional help. It's neither of the first two, so can anyone tell my what the likely cause is and how to fix it?
The screen displays nothing, although I'm guessing the computer boots (you can hear the start up music). When he boots, it gives two system beeps. He's running windows XP.

I'll be checking often, so if you have any questions, let me know and I'll answer then ASAP

Hello

From today my PC is getting a blank dark screen while booting, sometimes with or without a moving cursor. Sometimes the blank screen would appear just after the Welcome screen while at other times, just after the windows logo. The blank screen goes away after anything between 2 mins to 5 mins. The last time it happened, it didn't go away even after 7-8 mins, so I had to reset and log into the safe mode.

I checked the Event Viewer and found the following entries in the ACEEvent Logs

I am hoping that someone can point me in the right direction for a hardware problem that I am having. In December, I built a new system with the following specs:

Case - RAIDMAX SMILODON
Motherboard - ASUS P5N-E SLI
Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz
Memory - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB
Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar SE16 500GB
Video - EVGA GeForce 8800GTS
Sound - Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer

It worked perfectly until about two weeks ago. While I was playing the BioShock demo from Steam, all video dropped out to a blank screen. I wound up having to power it down via the power button. When I tried to start it up again though, it is just a blank screen (no POST screens). I can see the drives spinning up, it just acts like it is not getting a video signal. I thought it was the video card, so I sent it back and got a new one. After installing it though, it was the same thing. I decided to break down the system (removed the motherboard, all peripherals), blow it out well with some air and redo my cable management while I was at it.

After that it booted up and ran well for about two days and then happened again last night. I am leaning towards it being either the motherboard, the processor, the power supply or maybe the RAM. Has anyone else seen this before? Unfortunately, my case didn't come with a speaker, so I am not getting any beep codes when it powers on to help troubleshoot this.

Any idea's would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello my name is Zeroos and im new to the Tech Spot family.

I have the current issue with one of the systems i bought from some provider.

As soon i boot up the computer everything is ok. I cheked the BIOS settings the hardrive is not detected via IDE settings. Its because i enabled the SATA/RAID options in the BIOS. If i dont enable this the driver IS detectid via IDE option, but as a 3rd Slave. I tried everything, the jumpers and all and still nothing.

The real issue im having is because the connections i have on the computer with the HD is SATA. Like i said is a computer from a store so i dont whant to touch to much and the warranty goes kaboom. But i do know my stuff about computers. Anyhow the system starts ok, but when its done cheking the RAM memory and detecting the IDE on startup, right after this when its time to start loading Windows XP nothing happens, i get a black screen and nothing loads.

So i have to hit Reset button and everything loads again and tells me "Window could not load sucessfully choose the configuration thats adecuate" or something like that gives me 4-5 options.

So once you accept Las Known Configuration that worked or Start Windows Normally. The system loads windows and everything runs smooth.

Im preaty sure is some kind of issue with the way my HD is set in bios or with the whole RAID/SATA deal, im kind of new to this.

If theres anyone outhere that can give me a hand i would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so m... Read more

Using exclamation marks and capital letters by the dozens does not yield you any more help, possibly it will be quite the opposite.

Since your system is under warranty and quite obviously does not work correctly then just take it back to the store and have them fix it.

-Installed Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium Oct 22nd. Just finished installing all my software over the weekend. I installed Aion, Ventrilo, Photoshop, G15 Programs, G35 Headset Programs, Webroot Sypsweeper, Iolo System Mechanic, AnyDVD, CloneDVD2, Company of Heros and Brothers In Arms. Last products I installed were Webroot Spysweeper and Iolo System Mechanic. I have been using both for many years and never had a problem. After getting everything installed I ran a Deep System Analysis, which is what I always do.

I was then promptedto restart my PC, which is normal. When it restarted it went to the Windows 7 Boot Logo then the screen went black but had a moveable mouse cursor. I left it go thinking it may just take a bit longer to restart. I let it sit overnight and came back this morning with no progress so I hard restarted my PC. When I turned it back on it had a black screen with no mouse at all. I realized right away that my monitor wasn't on because normally the Power Indicator on my Gateway monitor is a dark blue color--well it is red now. It changes to this color when it goes into sleep/power save mode.

I know my PC is not booting up at all though because I have a G15 keyboard and the LCD will show a clock and cycle through that and a few other things ever X seconds. All it is showing now is a G15 Logo--which is what it show during booting.

Hi there!

I am trying to do a clean install for Windows XP. I inserted the bootable CD and started the computer. It asked "press any key to boot from cd" as usual. I pressed a key and "inspecting hardware configuration" appeared.

Unfortunately just a second after that screen turned blank and stayed so. I tried many times and waited a while also. Didn't help.

Good day to one and all,

I have encountered a dilemma of sorts with windows 8.1 suddenly booting only to a blank screen.

Was testing some of the themes I had downloaded for windows 8.1 when I clicked on the theme "A different touch Alt" and all of a sudden windows went blank. I could feel the OS running though co when I pressed the power button, it turned off after the usual amount of time it normally takes to shutdown.

Ever since I try to start, it only shows up until the Windows logo (blue squares) with the spiraling dots and then just blanks to a black screen that is illuminated.

Like before it appears that the OS is running in the background cos th HDD activity light keeps flickering. When the mouse is moved it shows the white default cursor moving around with the blue "processing" ring coming on and off and then disappears. Comes back on when the mouse is moved.

Tried booting in safe mode but no difference it shows the windows logo and then blanks out.

Also tried restoring, but it goes through the whole restoring process (initializing, processing, finishing), and thn says that it was unable to restore and that no files have been modified on the PC due to an unspecified error (0x8 1000204). However that's when I noticed that the restore had failed scanning the file system on drive E:\ ! Windows was definitely on Drive C: .

A few days ago I was running a program that builds the music database on my mp3 player, this uses the .net framework.

Whilst I was using it the PC became very slow and I was greeted with a message window, sorry I can't remember the specifics. But it was something along the lines of Windows XP stability and it asked for my XP disc. Not having an XP disc at hand I chose to ignore it and clicked cancel.

Upon rebooting the machine, after the Windows XP Home splash it hangs on a black screen with nothing more than the mouse.

Does anyone know what the problem is? If I haven't gone into enough detail just ask and I'll see if I can clear anything up.

Hi!
This is about my Windows 8.1 laptop not booting anymore. When i boot the laptop, i get the GRUB, because i installed kali linux (because 1, backup OS incase windows dies, like right now, and 2, because i was interested in linux and using those tools and "stuff", though nothing illegal, i assure you.) Anyway, linux boots up fine, but upon choosing the windows boot manager and waiting for the windows logo and spinning dots to go away, i am greeted by a blank screen. This happens in safe mode aswell. i can access the "advanced boot menu" screen via the f9 key, and i can access the UEFI settings too (F2 key). Prior to this Blank screen and being unable to boot, i was unable to use the internet, in chrome i just kept getting "ERR_Failed" whenever i tried to access the internet. So i tried to do a system restore, which did nothing at all, since it could access some files (saying it may be due to an antivirus). After a while (not sure of the timeframe), i got more errors, such as "class not registered" (i think) when trying to run programs like chrome.

2. Window reset - appears to get stuck on 8% - only to show an error saying reset could not happen, reverting changes (option to reset with files saved was chosen - as current files are required)
3. Start Up Repair - issue not resolved
4. System Restore and System Image Recovery - N/A as Windows cannot find previous image or restore point
5. Booted in Low-Resolution video - again, same issue is experienced.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

A:Windows 10 booting into blank screen with mouse cursor only

To add:

When the blank screen appears with cursor, it was noted that shortcut key for opening narrator worked and displayed the box fine. However the rest of the screen was black.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

Hi

My Toshiba Tecra A11-113 with win 7 32 bit boots with a blank screen and mouse cursor visible.
I tried to boot under different startup options. Repair mode, safe mode, last working configuration
and msdos command only... all these bootup options give the same result.

I also tried with win 7 32 bit dvd, but same result.

I am able to access the C drive by booting with a linux key, so data is visible.

Can any one please give me a solution ?

Thanks

A:Tecra A11-113 - blank screen and mouse cursor while booting

What happens if you access the BIOS? Is BIOS menu on the screen visible?
Power up the unit and press F2 button.
This should allow you to access the BIOS.

If you will be able to access the BIOS and if everything will appear as usual, then the screen is OK and I think there is some problem with your Windows system installation.
Therefore booting from Toshiba Recovery disk should help you to solve this problem.

You said that you already tried to boot from Windows DVD disk? is this Toshiba Recovery disk? In my opinion you should use such disk to set the notebook back to factory settings.

Hello All,

I have Windows 7 Home edition on a HP dv4 series laptop. Couple of days back I was browsing through a website suddenly the the windows was shutdown. I assumed it was some virus work

When I try to restart windows it is taking me upto the HP boot options then I get a blank screen with a cursor at the top left corner.

The following did not work,
1) Booting via the recovery disk
2) Booting via recovery hard disk
3) I created a USB boot with Ubuntu and even the USB is not getting detected.

I dunno what happened to the PC whether its the work of a virus or bios issue. Please Help

Did you change the bios to boot from the USB or disk before the hard drive?

Hi all, I'm new here, registered just to get help with my problem. I have a Compaq Presario CQ61-420US Laptop, it will be a year old at the end of April 2011. It has Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS. Never had a problem with it till now. I am planning on doing a memory upgrade (currently has 3.0 GB DDR2 PC6400 in 2 slots (1gb + 2gb), ordered a 2.0 GB chip to bring it up to 4.0 GB total memory)

Anyway I wanted to make sure I could do the swap myself so I unplugged the power cord, took out the battery, unscrewed the panel on the bottom of the laptop case, found the memory chips, took out both chips very carefully, undoing the tabs holding the chips in, took them out, inspected them, put them back in the way I took them out, making sure the tabs on the chips were lined up, maing sure the contacts were making contact. Put everything back together, ordered the new 2GB memory chip.

Today I went to power up the laptop, battery in and power cord plugged in and everything lit up like normal except the screen never came on, the power button stayed lit, the network status light stayed on, the power indicator was lit, two white lights were flashing at the same time every 5 seconds though, which is abnormal, one at the top right of the keyboard which I believe is the Num-lock light and one on the far left of the keyboard which I believe is the Caps-Lock light. And thats it, nothing ever happens it never turns on (blank screen) even after 20 min's. SO I held the power button down til... Read more

I've got it figured out, I just took the 1GB RAM stick out, since I won't be needing it once my new 2 GB stick comes in, and it booted up just fine, tested the same stick in both slots to make sure one wasn't bad and its all good now.

Hi my Lenovo G50 recently just stopped being itself. It has been caught in the so-called loop however no matter what i do from there on nothing works. Even system restore or the shift and f8 to try and get it into safe mode. Even the draining the battery solution does not work. My screen will come on and it will say automatic repair then just goes blank  (with the light still on).Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

I have recently used Driver Genius to update some drivers and had a power outage while installing the video card drivers. After the power was restored I could not boot normally (it would go blank after the loading screen goes away before the log on screen comes up.) So I boot into safe mode and install the drivers there, and then restart. It worked after about 12 tries.... Now, it will not load normally at all anymore.
While checking the system error logs, I find that (from 9/26/09 - 9/27/09) I am missing quite a few catalog files in the "system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}" directory. I also have many DCOM errors...

See "SysErrors.txt" in attachments
I have also ran chkdsk with many errors (I assume they are)

See "ChkDskOutput.txt" in attachments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's another possible culprit... Leftover video card drivers.... While I thought that my nVidia card somehow fried when the power went out, I put my ATI card in and tried to install the drivers for it, but to no avail... Oddly enough, the only way I could get it to work was by manually installing the drivers. While doing an automated install, I received the error message "Severe: Setup did not find a driver compatible with your current hardware or operating system. Setup will now exit."

What could be wrong???

EDIT: I have a strong feeling it has something to do with my video driver... Read more

In order for me to boot normally, I must disable my display adapter (ATI) in Device Manager....

I have tried it with both nVidia and ATI cards and I must disable both in order to boot correctly.. I installed them seperatly so there wouldn't be any conflicts.... How am I supposed to get my video card working If I can't enable it...

I restarted my laptop and the booting  screen came up again but it said Preparing Automatic Repair. I even tried to fix my bios thing as well but it didn't help. PLEASE HELP

I was trying to remedy the "plugged in but not charging" problem, clicked on something in the power section in a screen that came up after clicking on the power icon, and the screen went blank. I tried re-starting. I removed the battery and AC and held the power button for 30s. No change. When I power up, everything seems normal until the Lenovo splash screen comes up, the spinny dots start going, then the screen goes blank and stays blank. If I pull the AC, the screen  blinks on for 0.1 second before the machine dies. HELP!
