L340 screen goes blank automatically

Q: L340 screen goes blank automatically

Since 2-3 days when i updated my drivers and windows to the latest version the performance of my machine has become slow and the screen goes blank (black) suddenly for 5-10 seconds. And when the screen starts again everything (like fonts, icons) get bigger all of a sudden like the windows version is not compatible.And i am getting this notification saying "Display driver failed to start; using Microsoft Basic Display Driver instead. Check Windows update for a newer display driver." But in updates its saying, you're up to date.Thanks in advance for your help and attention.

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.)

Can you do the following?

How to find and post your Minidump Files:

My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don?t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don?t Zip each one individually.

I am running Windows7 and Taskeng.exe runs with a blank screen repeatedly. I cannot change permissions to rename it to see if that works. I have no idea what to do. If I close it it will just run later. I have been minimizing it to keep it from popping up but then its constanly on my start bar.

A:Taskeng.exe automatically runs with a blank window.

Hello,

You should open up task scheduler:

- click start
- type: task scheduler
- press enter

And see what tasks you have running... Look for taskeng.exe

Hi all,

How do you ensure excel autohides blank rows that are in various formats and still shows values that do have values? (eg. $.00)

This thread has helped:

http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/385564-solved-autohide-rows-excel.html

However, for some reason - if the cells are in $.00 format and have values in them - they are also hidden.

Thank you,

Got vundo and some months after that my screen was blank during bootup but came on when it got into windows.It shows at the very start of boot(where all the comp info is and some american logo) and then gradually goes black in about 2 seconds.Some more months after that, one day my screen was all blank and showed 'out of range' error.Then i booted into safe mode, ran online virus scanner and deleted about 15 entries of vundo.After that windows worked again but was still blank suring boot.
Another ting i also noticed that while an old game - IWD2 worked fine, when i enter IWD1 my screen immideatly goes blank and stays until i exit and restart monitor.when i restart monitor while ingame it similarly shows the picture for 2 seconds and then fades.However it works flawlessly while in windowed mode! I tried 640x480, 256 colors and compatibility modes - no use.
Same thing is when 3dmark03 is done with the 4 game tests and restarts itself to game test 1 my screen goes blank.
my monitor is also an old crt so i dunno what it could be.

I got the vundo probably from using internet explorer 6.0 :) anyway i fixed it and installed 8.0

My NEW C930 display just decided to quit displaying. Last I recall was upgrading the battery BIOS... and did not use the lap for day or 2. When I did flip the lid, the screen was blank. I did a couple resets, screen not visible -- no POST either, just blankI hooked up to an external monitor, forced Windows to clone and then the LCD started flickering.Lenovo and Windows updates are there. Since there is no POST (Lenovo Logo), I have not reason to believe it's Windows related.Flickering was sensitive to touch around the  keyboard areas, AND if I moved the LCD at all...Both the camera and pen work (viewing on the externally cloned monitor)... so panel is powered.The flickering stopped, and the LCD is just blank... on way to see anything is via external connection.Anyone run into this? It could be a loose ribbon, loose soder, backlight out, bad chip on the board,, a bad panel, or MB issue... Warretny repair has me waiting +3 weeks before parts arrive-- looking for some other ideas--- I bought this for a express purpuse to travel... anywone seen this, and been through remediation?

Hello, I just bought a Lenovo IdeaPad L340 15" in a store. Sadly I have a problem which is the DVD slot drive: From what the seller told me, it doesn't come with a DVD drive BUT I can take the thing inside the bay off and put an internal drive. Is it true? If so how do I take it off and what kind of DVD drive can enter in the slot? Thank you really much

This is a HP G70-227CL notebook pc, he has had it for a little over a year. He was on his email today and all of a sudden it went to a black screen and froze up. He rebooted it and when it restarted it gave us two options to restart normally or to let it fix the problem which was recomended and so we let it fix it.
It sat for about an hour or more with a black screen while we waited finaly changed to a dark blue then light blue then finally a box came up and wanted us to click on a opering drive below to fix the problem, but there was no operating drive listed in the box below.
It then said in the bottom to click load if nothing there, so we clicked load and it wanted us to insert an installation disk to load the drive and he had never got no instalation disks when he purchased the laptop. It took him about 20 min before he could get out of it, it was moving very very slow and not wanting to respond. It ended up shutting itself off and when it came back on it asked us again which option we wanted we tried the normal hoping it would give us something besides a blank screen, it started to come on normally then it jumped back to the first screen to give us the options again. it ended up deciding for itself to do the recomended option before we could click on anything and went back to a black screen. That is how it sits now, we have a white mouse arrow on the screen we can move around, it dont act frozen no more, but al lit has is a black screen.
We need this fixed we have thing... Read more

Just bought a brand new IdeaPad L340.Its Touchpad is not working properly -It is missing basic gestures; For example "Two-finger tap" = Right click doesn't work, or when I drag a file and my finger reaches the end of the touchpad the file stops dragging instead of continuing to go in the same direction.Two-finger scroll stops working if I scroll slowly and keeps on going if I remove one finger during scrolling. I have done all the basic stuff:1) Windows touchpad settings page has almost no options in it other than "Touchpad sensitivity", so that didn't work2) In device manager, there is absolutely no driver for the touchpad. I updated the rest of the drivers.3) Windows is up to date.4) I ran the Lenovo scan for any new drivers and all the Lenovo drivers and BIOS are up to date.5) Windows helper could not solve this issue. I have absolutely no touchpad control and I am desperate for help.Thank you

Hi, I recently bought the l340-I5RH (Gaming laptop, 9th gen i5, GTX 1650), and I noticed that the touchpad seems to be pretty bad in a couple different ways. The first thing I noticed was that the touchpad feels sort of "loose", the physical touchpad plate seems to descend slightly even upon light presses that don't trigger a click. Secondly, I'm unable to move the cursor using the touchpad while during any sort of keypress. This is an issue in things like simple games (Obviously, only the type that I would play with a touchpad, using a USB mouse is fine). I looked into it and it seems like an intentional feature, something about accidental palm movement while typing; however, I followed multiple sets of directions in pursuit of disabling, but my device seems to be missing the options set to remove the function.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks
