X1 Yoga 1st Gen (Type 20FQ, 20FR) HDMI and laptop screen do not display after screen goes blank

Q: X1 Yoga 1st Gen (Type 20FQ, 20FR) HDMI and laptop screen do not display after screen goes blank

Having an issue with my X1 Yoga riinning Win10 64-bit and all firmware & drivers are up to date. I often plug in an HDMI screen to my machine and when I do and step away for a few mins the screen goes blank to save power etc. When I return and click these or hit a key the backlight on the laptop comes back on but no image is displayed on either the laptop nor the HDMI monitor. If I unplug the HDMI cable then the laptop screen comes back perfectly and then I can plug the HDMI back in and get the image back on my larger monitor. This seems much different issue then the "blank screen" I read up on and appears to be a detecing from sleep state issue in the driver etc. Anyone else have this? Any fixes for this as I'm plugging the HDMI in/out/in 5 times a day or more... This never occured in the past so appears to be an update issue.

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.)

When I boot up without a connection to an external monitor I experience some display issues with text sizing of certain objects within certain applications (e.g. Microsoft Visual Studio).  In these applications parts of the User Interface display perfectly.   Other parts of the same application will have vastly oversized objects and text.  And, in another application the text is greatly undersized in certain portions of this app. When I boot up while connected to an external monitor everything displays perfectly on the external monitor.   This happens without making any changes whatsoever to system display setting or application configuration settings.  If I disconnect the external monitor the X1's internal monitor still displays everything perfectly.   But if restart while disconnected from an external monitor I experience the same display issues as described in the 1st paragraph. I don't think this problem was always there, but  I cannot say for sure.  It just got so annoying that I finally decided to write to the forum today.   I would guess that the problem has been this way for 1-2 months. The Lenovo System Update app tells me that everything is up to date.    Is there some setting or perhaps driver that needs to change? Tim

After installing these drivers the display on the X1 Yoga remains black and is unsuable when docked or undocked; however external monitors are functional. Any ideas on what is causing this? The OneLink+ dock is also at the latest driver/firmware. Rolling back to the previous version resolved the issue, but I continue to still have the random black,white and/or gray blocks that randomly appear within the Office Suite. I was hoping the 21.20.16.4505 Display Drivers would help with this. 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!

I was moving our Dell Studio 17 laptop and the screen went blank. I thought it did a power save or something. But I could not get it redisplay anything..no flickers, nothing.

I rebooted, nothing.

I opened up the back and reseated the ram and verified the hard drives were secure. I vacuumed out any dust. No difference.

So I tried using the HDMI with our TV and it displays just fine. I try to toggle the screen (function F8 on my laptop) and it makes no difference. HDMI is always shown.

In the past when we use the HDMI to display netflix movies on our TV, I hookup the HDMI and the laptop automatically switches to the HDMI display and turns off the laptop display. When I unplug the HDMI, it wouldnt turn the laptop screen back on. I would have to reboot with the HDMI disconnected for the display to come back.

Now rebooting doesnt not bring the screen back.

Anything else to try? are there settings somewhere forcing the laptop to not send info to its own screen? BIOS?

This laptop has an ATI card and uses the latest drivers. It does have the Catalyst control center where it detects the displays. It seems the 'unknown' laptop screen and TV (when HDMI is connected, the only way I can see the screen at this time)..but it calls them duplicates and calls both of them #1 display.

Thanks for the help

When viewing the Dell Optiplex 9030 specifications, it states that the device can be used as an external display for other devices, via its HDMI input.
I have followed the instructions given in the link below to link-up a MacBook Air as a video input, using HDMI. One user in the thread below says they have successfully done this, although it is not working on my machine. 

When I switch the display from "PC" to "HDMI" using the OSD (On Screen Display) buttons it only shows a black screen, although my MacBook Air detects that it is connected to the Dell Optiplex 9030, and adjusts its settings accordingly. On the Optiplex 9030, the question-mark below where it says "HDMI" on the OSD disappears, but no signal is displayed on the screen. 
Can anyone please explain a workaround to this problem?

Hello all, hoping I can get some help with this.

I have an HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop computer with an nvidia video card. I do not have all the specs handy but due to the problem I'll explain below.

I had been playing WoW for a while when occasionally the game would freeze and my monitor would switch off and on and there would be a message stating the display driver had to be reinitialized. I didnt think anything of it but then it happened one time and I got a blue screen message that flashed on and off quickly before the computer shut down. I couldnt make out much beyond "display driver error" and when i turned the computer back on the monitor was totally blank no matter how many times i rebooted. I let the computer sit for a while unplugged and with the battery removed and it began working properly but then it happened again and now it is not returning to normal. I cannot see anything but I can hear the computer working. Anyone have any ideas what I can do about this?

My Laptop (Thinkpad X1 Carbon, Graphics card "Intel HD Graphics 520") does not recognise that I connected an external HD monitor through HDMI. The external monitor is powered. I changed the display resolution to the resolution of the external screen (1920:1080), I applied the F10 key, I changed the BIOS: "Shared display priority: HDMI". Nothing helped.The BIOS setting "Shared display priority: Display on Dock" does not yield any results either. I switched the computer on and off, connected the cable before and after switching it on. No results either. The device manager does not give any indication about HDMI-connectors. The HDMI-Displayport cable is new (I have not tested a different one). So I am out of my depths. If anybody knows, how I can solve this I would be grateful.

Hello,
I have a Sony Vaio T-series laptop (model SVT13126CXS) running windows 7. As of yesterday the screen is black...it doesn't display anything.
Laptop powers on (lights are on, fan makes noise, etc.).
I was able to plug an HDMI cable from my laptop to my TV and I am able to use the laptop using my TV screen (laptop screen is still black, but displays on TV works).
And the odd twist... this is a touch screen laptop, so I am able to touch my laptop screen and it makes clicks and moves cursor on my TV. (for some reason, the track pad doesn't work while its on TV display though).
Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you can give me steps into diagnosing the problem, that'd be great!
I live in a small college town and there is only one computer repair shop and since it's a monopoly he rips people off. Charges $95 for a diagnostic (if you get it fixed, it goes towards the repair; if not, it's $95). Charged my friend $120 for macbook charger and it wasn't even an genuine Apple product!

If this was just a configuration issue, doing a system restore jumping back the setting to a previous date would restore it back without you losing any files.

I waited for a long time before attempting a reboot. Since then i don't see anything on the screen after the initial BIOS screen (Which is also all jumbled up).

Hi,

I have a problem that is driving me absolutely mental. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Basically I have a Monitor (Benq G2420HD) hooked up to my laptop (Sony Vaio AR71m - Running Windows 7) via HDMI. It worked absolutely perfectly before I went away for the summer. Since coming home and, to my knowledge, having made no major changes to my computer I encountered a problem.

The monitor is recognised on my computer - it shows up in display settings and Nvidia Control Panel fine. Windows also extends the desktop to the other monitor. The monitor shows the green power light but is completely unresponsive and shows only a blank screen as if it's not turned on - I can't change the channel, bring up the menu or do anything until I unplug the HDMI cable and then the monitor works again.

I have tested my computer on another monitor and it works and I have tested my monitor on another computer and that works. At one point I thought I had solved the problem after installing an older graphics driver and and my desktop actually showed on the monitor but two minutes later it disappeared again.

I've tried countless GPU drivers (GeForce 8400 GTm), different HDMI cables and I've even formatted my hardrive and reinstalled windows but to no avail.

I've completely run out of ideas of things to try. If anyone has any suggestions please feel free.

Thanks

I bought a HDMI (M) to DVI-D (F) adapter for an external monitor. The monitor only supports DVI-D or VGA hence the necessity for an adapter. I attached the cables and had set the "project screen" setting to "extend". Lo and behold, blank screen.
I have tried the adapter with other two desktops I have lying around and I can verify it is working. The laptop detects the monitor. It also noticed the DVI-D connection. In terms of actually outputting anything to the external monitor? No bueno. I really desire a second monitor for productive workloads.

I've got a problem with my laptop, a 2010 HP G60-635DX. First, a little history. This was my wife's laptop until she dropped it and broke the display screen. We hooked it up to a monitor and she was good to go. Last Christmas I got her a new computer and again she was all set. In the meanwhile I've been using this old Dell laptop from 2006 with WinXP in it. Works, but is slow as all get out. A few months ago I decided to use my wife's old computer for myself. It comes with Windows 7 and works quite well. Last June I made the mistake of trying the Windows 10 upgrade, and what a disaster that turned out to be. So I reverted back to Win7, but I lost all the drivers that came with it, so I was stuck. So recently I bought a new screen for my wife's old computer, and I installed it today. So guess what? The screen works fine, but all I get is a blank white screen Nothing at all! It's as if the computer can't display anything at all. I just don't understand it. The computer fires up, but that's it. No start screen, no nothing. Just a blank white screen.
Anybody have any ideas as to what's wrong, and how I could fix this?

A:New laptop screen shows just a blank white screen

I got the computer working! Last night I rechecked the connections to the screen and made sure that they were solid, then all of a sudden the Startup Utility came on, asking me what I wanted to do. So I opted to wipe the HD clean and revert it to the original factory specs (don't worry, I have all important files backed up already). I made sure the connector cable was in there good, then I stuck a piece of electrical tape on it just for safety. Now the computer runs as good as new, and I don't have to spend any money taking it in to a shop.
 
The moral of the story is this - always check and recheck your connections. Lesson learned!

After a dozen off forcing shut down and turn on, the keyboards light and the light near power button turned on, but... ...the screen remain blank.

I started having issues yesterday, the day after I installed teamviewer a program that is on my iPad also to remotely control the laptop. At first the screen started freezing when I was in the middle of a Java game. So I restarted the laptop only to have it freeze at the main screen (after login).

The screen would freeze the display would change to a very low resolution (I think). So I kept restarting it only to repeat. Until eventually once past the windows logo the screen would turn black and blank. Sometimes the display would turn on black and blank and other times it would do that after the logo.

A few times I managed to get it to go into safe mode and I restored to a few days ago but it made no difference, I also tried many other things like changing some settings but nothing worked.

So after like 2 or 3 hours I Rolled back and disabled "nvidia quadro nvs 135m" (since I read it might be causing the issue and I should uninstall it which I couldn't), once I disabled it I restarted the computer and made it to the main screen without issues, and I could even load my game. I enabled it again And restarted the computer only to have the same issues so I disabled it again after finally getting into safe mode.

I don't know if it works fine now, I left it on at most for 5-10 minutes without any issues and I never actually logged into the game to see if it works.




I figured out that in my display settings instead of showing my main monitor it only sho... Read more

Windows 7 will not allow me to duplicate desktops 1 and 3 ( or any other combination) that allows 3 different views.

Suggestions ? Thanks

It isn't Windows that is stopping you but the laptop itself. The laptop may have two additional display ports/hookups in addition to the laptop's own screen but it doesn't mean you can use all three at once. You don't say what laptop, but you will likely find that the video card in it can only support up to two display devices at a time, with one of them being the laptop's own screen.

You want to run three displays off of a laptop, you're going to need an external video device something like this,
