Thinkpad 770 display gone kaput!

Q: Thinkpad 770 display gone kaput!

After a couple months of flawless use, I'm having trouble with my display on this old model.

For a day or so, the display would go dark at random times, requiring a restart, after which it was fine for awhile.

Now it has gone out completely.

The funny thing is is that it's not "completely" out. I can still make out, but just barely, the display. It's too dark to read or navigate, but I can tell the desktop is there somewhere.

I've plugged an external monitor into it and it has worked fine.

I'm hoping it's a simple fix. The battery is very old and won't charge over 15%, and if that is the problem I'll be glad, but this is with it plugged into the ac adapter.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Compaq Presario R3000 running Windows XP SP3 and nVIDIA display controller GeForce4 440 Go 64.

The on-board LCD won't light up so I would like to use this as a desktop with an external monitor. I can get the laptop to extend the desktop so that it stretches the desktop across two monitors (the broken laptop LCD and the desktop monitor); but, what I need is for the laptop to duplicate the display on each monitor.

I cannot get it to do that, help!

Hey everyone,
I recently ran into the issue that the backlight on my Lenovo Thinkpad W520 for the display wont light up ( i took the LCD and shined a flashlight behind it to ensure that it was being digitized which it was). It worked fine one day until I turned on the laptop and the screen was black. I have reseated all the RAM, bought new cables for the display, a new inverter for the display, and even a new screen. I have unplugged the CMOS battery to reset the BIOS, and tried holding the power button for long amounts of time with the battery and power cord disconnected. Holding the power button down and restarting fixed my Thinkpad T410 when the same issue happened 3 times before, but it wont fix this issue. All of this never happened on the T410 for the 2 years I had Windows 7 on it but now both machines run Windows 10 Pro. I removed the hard drive from the W520 just in case it was a problem with the drive. Also I am testing the screen with the laptop display assembly disassembled. Please help, I am lost as to what I can do.

I have an old ThinkPad T500 that I was planning to give to my younger brother so he can do school work.  Running Windows Vista Ultimate.  A few months back, the internal display was acting intermittently, meaning it would not display anything (dark screen) but if you connected an external monitor, it would work fine.  After a second or third reboot, the internal display would come on. This morning I turned it on and the monitor had parallel color lines in various patterns.  I can hear the laptop running and booting up.   After a couple of minutes, I plugged in an external monitor - nothing.  I rebooted the machine and the same color pattern was displaying on the internal display.  This time, the external monitor came on and booted up in 800 x 600 mode.  When I went into Device Manager > Display it shows "Standard VGA Adapter".  I recall that this laptop comes with switchable graphics between the Intel GMA 4500MHD and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 (256 MB).  Is the video card bad or is it just the actual display?

It could be both, difficult to say without having the actual ThinkPad at hand.
 
I don't remember by heart the BIOS settings in the T500, but please try going to the BIOS (press F1 right after turning on the laptop) and go to "Config" and "Display", select only the integrated graph, save and reboot.  Keep us posted how it goes...
 
Hopefully that would fix the screen problems...

Hi Senyo,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
As I understand that you are facing issue with your display in T450s.
Looks like you have a bad LCD panel & it needs to be changed so better contact Lenovo & replace under warranty.
Also you can try moving the LCD lid at certain angle whether display is coming or not.
 
I hope the above information helps.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

A:Thinkpad T480 display too dark?

"Too dark" is subjective.  I cannot comment without seeing the screen.  When I have an issue like yours, I prefer to physically take the machine a warranty servicer or dealer.  I can then turn the machine on and we can discuss it while we are both present.  If you return it, you don't have a good way to know if your screen is normal or defective.

Hello,I've been running into a fairly consistent problem with my Lenovo Thinkpad P70. It has the Quadro M3000m, and the Xeon CPU option which includes the HD530 graphics. I usually run the graphics in Hybrid mode, since I run into driver compatibility problems running it in Discrete Only.In Hybrid mode, there's some strange behavior. When I use the external HDMI display only, Extended Display, or the internal laptop display only, everything works well. However, when I use "Duplicate Display", it does not work. The laptop display turns on, goes to a very low resolution (1280x720 I believe), and the external display turns off.When I look in the Intel GPU multi-display settings, it says that there are two displays, the laptop display and "virtual display". When I go into the nVidia multi-display GPU settings, it shows that there are three: The Samsung TV (My external display), the internal display, and 'Analog display', which it shows connected via VGA (which is wrong), and also shows a max resolution of this 'analog display' as 1280x720. In the nVidia screen, it shows that while activating the 'duplicate display' mode, the computer tries to connect to both the internal display and this 'analog display' (which is not correct at all), but if I manually disable the analog display, enable the Samsung TV, and then right-click the Samsung TV and click "Duplicate from Display 1", the duplicate display feature works, and the "analog display" disappears from the list.

Hi I just bought a Thinkpad P70 with a 4K panel and have a rather annoying issue. If my Power Options are set to Turn the display off after i.e 10 minuttes, the display is obviously turned off after 10 minuttes. When I touch the mouse or press a key on the keyboard the display lights up a bit but nothing is displayed on the screen. The only way I can get the display up and running again is to press and hold the power button so the machine goes to sleep. I can then press the power button again and my login screen is displayed and everything works as expected. btw. I am runing Windows 10 x64 and the graphics drivers are the latest from Lenovo´s site.

I recently purchased a ThinkPad X270 with the 1920x1080 IPS non-touch display.  After only a very short time using it, I noticed that the display starting jumping and flickering very badly at random times.  The BIOS and all of the drivers were updated to what the Lenovo Companion tool recommended.  I captured some video of the behavior here: https://1drv.ms/v/s!AjP8R5t89zq2oXvMKmnuV_6l0fic I was hoping that this was just a bad individual unit.  I contacted support and explained the problem, and they set me up with a replacement.  Well, the replacement arrived yesterday and it's doing the exact same thing.  Videos of the new one exhibiting the problem are here: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AjP8R5t89zq2oXzhuWwFO34fh-s7 I've started the refund process for the new one because at this point, I suspect it is either a driver problem, a design problem, or a supply chain problem with the LCD panel.  I'm not sure what model I will ultimately upgrade to from my beloved x230 but unfortunately, I'm sure it's not the x270.

I also tried with hotkeys for that, doesn't work. I am attaching the appropriate screenshots. Control Panel/Display/Adjust_resolution?Control Panel/Display/Adjust_resolution?Control Panel/Display/Adjust_resolution?Control Panel/Nvidia_Control_Panel?Right_click/Display Settings?Right_click/Display Settings?  I would really appreciate if this problem is fixed. I look forward to get a solution to this problem. Configuration: Intel Core i7-6700HQ, NVIDIA GeForce 940MX-2048 MB, Memory:8192 MB, Storage:512 GB.

HI,
I am unsuccessfully trying to activate dual display mode in Win XP. The goal is to have separate outpot (different from LCD) to the video port for an external TV monitor. I have managed to get the video port active but only in a clone mode to the LCD. There is a check box in the video driver settings for "dual display" but it is greyed out. The driver is NeoGraph 256AV.

My research indicates that it may be an XP compatibility problem. Any comments? I am considering rolling back to Win98 to see if that helps.
Thanks in advance,
John

I recently purchased a TP X1 Extreme, and love it, however, I have this strange intermittent problem: I have an external monitor (1920x1080) and I'll be working along (doesn't seem tied to an app), when all of a sudden then screen goes black for 3 - 5 seconds, then returns. Doesn't happen continuously, just once, then it goes away for some period of time - maybe up to a few hours, then it happens again. Seems to have gotten better with a recent BIOS update, but still happens. I have the same issue at work, where I have a TP P52 mobile workstation, but it happens much less often (like maybe once every couple of weeks). Any ideas? I have been using the Lenovo Support Bridge to keep the system up-to-date on drivers and Windows updates.
