Lenovo Flex 2-14 (Model 20404) - black screen on windows - working screen while recovery

Q: Lenovo Flex 2-14 (Model 20404) - black screen on windows - working screen while recovery

Hi! I do have trouble with a Lenovo Flex 2-14 (Model 20404).The Lenovo turns on, shows the Levono Boot screen and finishes with a black screen. - I am able to enter the Bios (working screen)- I am able to run the internal recovery with a working screen - after recovery and a new boot up - the screens gets black again How is that possible? I am not able to boot from a usb-stick (with working Linux or Windows installation - tested on other systems) cause I get a black screen (the USB is being recognized). So... what are the next steps? This seems wierd, since the screen itself seems to work. I found some forum-topics saying it is a GPU-failure. Maybe thats the case? I would appreciate any support!

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If you haven't already, hold the power button (about 5-10 seconds) until the machine shuts down and then you can turn it back on. You can also substitute this step with taking out the battery.

My ~2 week old Lenovo Flex 5's screen started to flicker a few days ago and the issue has become progressively worse since then to a point where most of the screen is covered by black flickering at times. The computer starts fine, but when the computer is moved and especially when the screen is moved up or down the flickering appears. Sometimes the flickering only starts after the computer has been on for a few hours (restarting the PC fixes the issue for a short while). I have tried updating to the latest Intel graphics drivers in the device manager to no avail. I then tried uninstalling the display drivers from the device manager, that only seemed to work for a short while. Is this a faulty screen that should be RMA'd immediately or is it likely a software-related issue?

I spilled water on my laptop a few days ago. My screen was fine at first, but then (I assume) water got into some part of the hardware. Now the display is barely visible. I think it could be the inverter board that was affected, but I want to know how to fix it/what part(s) I need.In addition, my keyboard doesn't work. The touchscreen keyboard doesn't work either. I can tap on the keys, but nothing shows up. What is affected so that I can't even use the touchscreen keyboard? Any advice would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Water spilled into a laptop can cause a variety of problems as well as short  circuits.  It would be difficult to pin point exactly where your problems lie.  I suspect though that laptop isn't thoroughly dried out yet which maybe part of the problem.  I would suggest you open it up and let it continue to dry out, before proceeding further.  For your reference here is a link to your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual.......

As you can see there are multiple problems that have come up in this notebook. I recently reinstalled windows 10 to solve some other problems. The installation went perfect and afterward everything seemed to work fine. When my wife turned it on the blue BIOS screen came on (as it did before the installation) and I was unable to use the touchpad, mouse or arrow keys to move the selection. I rebooted and it started up fine only the keyboard did not work. I had to use the onscreen keyboard to log in. Once inside, sometimes the keyboard works and sometimes it doesn't. I've tried using the f6 to toggle the touchpad on but it didn't work. The keyboard is touch and go and now the blue screen BIOS sometimes comes up when the computer is started. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I've searched for solutions and haven't been able to find anything that works to solve these problems. I've uninstalled the drivers and rebooted for a fresh re-install of the drivers but that only temporarily fixes the problem. Thank you.

I noticed my touch screen stopped working yesterday May 14, 2018. I have looked under Human Interface Devices and the HID-Compliant touch screen Properties window says "The device is working properly." I have also tried to update the driver, but the system says there are no updates available and that the only driver in existence is the original (June 21, 2006). I have also tried disabling and enabling the device and several restarts with no luck. Any advice?

Hello everyone. I must say that it is a lovely laptop but the touch screen issue is making me very upset. I called  Lenovo and Microsoft support and those people doesn't even have a bit of knowledge. Many incertain process and lot of doubts in them. But it can't be a hardware problem. I bought it 1 week ago and when I opened the factory sealed box the touch screen worked perfectly! And a few hours later would stop working. No pen and touch input available, no hid compliant touch screen in device manager. I read almost every thread about this complain in this forum. Tried everything without success. The laptop is 99% good.. But without the touch screen is like trash. Hope someone can understand and if there's a solution, please tell me and I beg you send me specifics links or specifics procedures, please don't tell me "go to support.lenovo.com"  or "do a system recovery or windows 10 update", etc. Thank you.

Hello, my Lenovo ideapad flex 15 is giving me blank screen after I tried to upgrade it to Windows 10. After downloading the upgrade the system recommended to reboot. I did exactly that but right after that I am getting black screen. Even bios wouldn't show up. I tried to do hard reboot . And reset. Surging access power . Ram stick is fine. I think if I can bring it back to the original windows 8 it will fix it. But the bios wouldn't show up either. I don't have the recovery disc. I really need some advice to fix it. Your help will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

After consultation with Lenovo Turkey, which was insisting on recovery, I recovered my ideapad turning back to an image taken by Win10 two months ago. This step did not help. Some how next day after recovery in the morning it worked only for a few hours then stopped working again. I tried to disable and enable the "HID-compliant device" or other relaten USB items and reinstalled/activated, it did not help.I hope it is a software/driver failure and this problem will be solved soon by Lenovo.

Hello all,      So I bought a Flex 3-1120 a while back and decided to install Linux on it. I had some compatibility issues so I reverted back to Windows last night. Now that I have Windows everything works fine except the touchscreen doesn't work at all. There's nothing in the "Device Manager -> Human Interface Devices" except for something called "GPIO Laptop or Slate Indicator Driver". I've read there should be some kind of touch screen driver there. Anyone know how to get my touch screen up and running? Thanks so much!     David  Edit: I should mention I've tried automatically searching for new drivers and I've tried installing assorted drivers I found through the Lenovo webite.

I recently ordered a flex 5 14" and have mostly had a great experience with it, but every now and then it seems to randomly crash on me. I'm used to seeing a "blue screen of death" on other computers, but this one is giving me a red screen. It generally takes whatever action it deems necessary and restarts before I have a chance to take a picture or even read what it is saying the problem is. I've run the basic diagnostics, but the Lenovo checks are saying everything is fine. Any recommendations on how to fix the issue?

My kid has been using this laptop and loved it, but mentioned a while ago it was difficult to power it back on after turnned it off. However she managed to work around by putting it in hibernate/sleeping mode only, or recycling the system many times (by holding on power button to force it off). The issue was black screen (no Lenovo logo) but computer was on. I didn't pay much attention because she can still make it work, and I was too busy. Last week, there was a windows update (again) and the computer was forced recycle. It never comes back alive again. The same, computer is humming, but no any visual output on screen, just black. Tried novo button, bootable USB, external monitor, all no use. Check the warranty, just over by 2 months! Asked the service store, to fix will cost at least $200-$300 to replace the motherboard! It does not make sense when spent a bit more could buy a new notebook. But my kid liked it and it does not make sense to throw it away either, when it still looks pretty new and only being used very lightly (schoolwork only). It is sad, especially the brand has been gainning my trust. I probably don't expect a "good" solution either from Lenovo or community, but just throw my frustration here (only because have just registered the account and there is no support email or web form).

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of all the problems.  Here are a couple of things to try........
 
First, try a reset of the BIOS.  The procedure can be useful in resolving some hardware conflicts which your computer may have.  Just do this......
 
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 3. Plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
If you are comfortable working inside your laptop. try this........
 
Try the reset again with the battery removed.
 
If the reset didn't resolve the problem then you may have a failed piece of hardware preventing the bootup. Remove the battery, hard drive, optical drive, memory, wireless card and bluetooth if it is installed. Now try to power up the stripped laptop. With all the hardware removed you should have lights come on and it may possibly beep since there is no memory installed. If the laptop is showing signs of life start adding hardware one piece at a time starting with a memory module and boot up the laptop. If it doesn't power up try the memory in the other slot. Also try the other memory module separately in both slots if two are available. If it is still showing signs of life add another piece and boot. Do this for each item until it doesn't power up again. The last piece of hardware installed is your problem part.

I have a Flex 3 1480 that was purchased from Costco. with a 3 year warranty.I am having the same issues that alot of other people are having where the screen will go black out of nowhere.Yesterday alone it happened 12 times. (yes I wrote down everytime it happened) I have updated the bios and all other updates that were posted in a different post.The Flex is runnning the latest version of Windows 10 with all updates installed. I called tech support yesterday but got nowhere real fast. The lady did not speak very good english and what I did make out was her telling me to remove my ethernet card!! What can I do now? This laptop is useless now. Its only good for browising the net since I wont lose any work that way.I have lost to much work trying to use this laptop that I no longer trust it. Since Lenovo does not stand behind their products and come up with a fix I guess I will try to return it to costco. Hopfully a class action lawsuit arises as selling this junk is Fraud and I have been Scammed. I knew I should have stuck with Dell!

I have to restart the pc (the hard way), therefore losing everything i was doing before this event.I bought this computer 1 year ago but I'm not a big computer user, i use it probably once a week or less, but it still seems like im using an old computer that can fail at any moment.Just to clarify, this computer never had any kind of "accident", never fell or never had any kind of bump. I dont move it from my home and its never been on a backpack. What can i do, or what can you do for fixing this computer? I hope you can help solve this problem. Thanks.

I found the exact issue and after posting it to another thread it fixed others computers too, so here's the solution. At first I thought it was a screen issue, but if I pressed firmly on the screen it would start working for a little before I had to do it again. I took the back off of the screen and base and after a long period of time wasted and wires wiggled, I found it was where all the wires from the screen combined into one big black wire right by the fan (I know I should have taken pictures but its pretty obvious once you take the back off). After pushing it firmly back down, as it was held by a good amount of black tape, my screen has came right back to life and no problems since. I know Ill have to do it in another 6 months, but whatever needs to be done to get through school, right? Just go pick up a 2 dollar screwdriver kit for electronics (the super small bits) and take the back off of the keyboard/base and push that wire firmly back down and youre set! (Don't reset your PC, microsoft logins are not as easy to fix and take even longer to get all apps back and working!)

The cable looked fine without any damage, and the screen looked fine from the inside. Please suggest if is a problem is with lcd cable or lcd digitzer or  something I do not know. I don't see the point of taking the laptop to repair and getting charged 250-300$ where as I can get a decent new laptop for 350-450$. I would rather buy the necessary part and replace it myself.screen faultyIll be glad if you could provide service. Thank you for your time.

Hi everyone, I'm hoping you can help me. I've had my Lenovo for just less than two years now. It's already had to have it's screen replaced, due to a faulty connection, but recently I've been having more problems with it.Yesterday, the screen started to flicker with a green tinge. Sometimes lines appear, and the green tint fades in and out, and then disappears for a while, before returning. I had been hibernating my computer for a while, and had recently updated to Windows 10, so I thought perhaps it was to do with an update, or a problem with the graphics card. I restarted the computer, and that resolved the issue.However, when I hybernated my computer again, and then started to use it today, the same thing happened. This time, the flickering and green screen resolved itself quickly and disappeared...But I am concerned regardless. I tried plugging my computer into a different moniter, and the green flickering did not appear on that one. However, moving my screen does not seem to have any effect, or be the cause of the flickering. I would really like to avoid having to send my laptop into Lenovo for a fix, or a screen replacement, as I rely on it for work...Is there a software issue, or an update, or anything like that which could perhaprs resolve the issue?Thank you everyone!
