Lenovo Edge 2 Screen goes black randomly

Q: Lenovo Edge 2 Screen goes black randomly

Hi, Since the day i have bought the Lenovo Edge 2 Notebook, it has had this persistent problem of the screen randomly going black during usage. Nothing brings it back unless I reboot the system, although i know that the laptop is ON because the keyboard is lit. Is there any solution to this? Because it is really frustrating. Some times it even happens 8-10 times in a day.

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Edge 2 Screen goes black randomly

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.)

What will happen is that I will will be using the laptop with or without the charger cable plugged in and the screen will randomly go black. The keyboard will stay lit up but none of the buttons pressed with change this black scrren state. I even have tried turning off the keybaord blacklights but the whole keybaord becomes unresponsive. It doesn't atter if I close and reopen the laptop or leave it there for minutes or hours I have tested it out. It will just stay in that state until the battery runs out. What I have to do in these situations is hold the power button for it to completely shut off and then turn it back on, only for it to do the same thing. I have timed it. It's very random. Sometimes it does it after a few hours of using it, sometimes after a few minutes.  A few months ago I live chatted with someone who suggested some edits, such as completely turning off sleep and the screensaver but that didn't help. They also suggested that I follow their instruction and download an install certain drivers but that didn't stop the problem either.  I do believe this started right after a windows update a few days after purchase. I've had this laptop for a year and the random black screens happen very frequently now; everyday, multiple times a day.  I'm attending graduate school and you can imagine how annoying it is to be in the middle of class or writing a paper eat home and for this to happen. I'd appreciate any help you can give me.

Im not native english speaker, sry if u cant understand some parts. Ill try my best to make my message clear so eventual will come easier.

This problem occurs for quite some time, its rather calm since few weeks when I downloaded shitload of new drivers and some other lenovo stuff but might be just coincedence. Since this issue doesnt want to go away itself I have to do something about it. I can send it to Lenovo for free service anymore so Id like to ask some experts if theres something I can do to fix this issue.

Some info:
- occurs usually while typing or other stuff, but few times my laptop literally went nuts and flashed black screens few times a sec, no matter if i touched it or not

- its not overheating, i bought cooling pad and it didnt help much

- can happen just after turning laptop on and not happen during 10h+ session

Thank you in advance.

Work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which will uncover most problems. Report back results as there may be other steps indicated.

Why did you install all of these other drivers? Did you already have performance problems or just create them?

Do you have a System Restore point still available before this problem began?

What else have you installed? Please post back as screenshot of Control Panel's Programs and Features after maximizing the page, using the Snipping Tool from Start Menu: Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums - Windows 7 Forums

Greetings, I have a Lenovo Yoga 730 15 with 4K and NVIDIA GTX 1050, which has a screen that blacks out at random. Based on what I read in other threads, it could be an issue connected with the auto-brightness and auto-dimmining settings. So, I turned those features off. Though it has been happening less, it's still happenning. Could anyone tell me what other settings I should check to resolve this issue? Thank you for your help.

Dear Tenforums users,

I have recently encountered problems or rather peculiarities with my relatively new Lenovo laptop;
whenever I'm working on it and switch to another tab, there is a chance of random black stripes and dots occuring in the screen. Not (yet) to the extend that I cannot work on it and when I switch tabs again they are gone from the previous tab.

Screenshots of the problem:

I am just wondering what might be the cause and if I should be worrying myself about future defects. (especially since my warranty is till february 2017)

Thank you all for your time!

At first I thought it was th F9 key, but that wasnt it. I plugged it into my tv as a make-shift monitor and I can see everything which means it is a screen issue? I dont know if it would also be good to note that my entire desktop shows up on my tv make-shift monitor rather than it only being, say, half of the desktop (if that makes any sense).

Hello everyone, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430 and it was working fine until today. Today I worked on the laptop as usual and just turned off the Fast Startup setting in the Windows 8 and then restarted the computer. Now it only shows a black screen (LCD backlights are on but there is nothing on the screen). I hear the usual BIOS beep sound but I can't see the BIOS screen or the Windows. I've tried to connect to a an external monitor via HDMI. Amazingly, both my laptop's screen and external monitor works fine when the laptop is connected to the external screen. But when I disconnect them, again I can only see the black screen. I turned on the Fast Startup settings in Windows 8, but it didn't work. Then I loaded the default settings from the BIOS and it didn't worked too. Finally I've installed Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS to test if it is because of the operating system but it didn't help too. I've tried all of this using the laptop's screen while it was connected to the external screen. It is very confusing for me. It seems like the screen is only working when an external screen is also connected to the laptop. I would be very happy if anyone can help me about this problem.

Okay so like the title says I recently cracked my laptop screen and since I don't have any warranty I'm going to do the repair myself. My first question would simply be what parts do I need to buy? Looking at my laptop it appears that only the glass panel that goes over the digitizer is what got messed up. The LCD panel is fine and the touchscreen still works so I believe all I have to do is replace the front bezel? Is that possible or do I need to buy a whole new LCD panel to repair my laptop?  Besides two thin cracks going through the screen, most of what shatted was the top right bezel portion.  Please help me ! 

A:Lenovo Edge 2 -1580 Cracked Screen. What do I do?

The thing you call the front glass is the digitizer. There is a matrix of VERY fine wires running through the glass.  The whole screen is bonded together so you need to replace the whole panel.

Hello, I recently updated my Lenovo Edge 2 15 with i5 and after the update, I turned off the laptop. Then when turning it back on, the screen will not start up. The laptop itself turns on becasue the power button is on and the fans are turning and I can turn the keyboard lights on and off, but the screen just stays black. Its not even the kind of black that you see when the screen is black but on, it's as if the laptop isnt on whatsoever (no light in the screen at all). I also hooked up the laptop to an external monitor and the monitor doesn't recognize that the laptop is on either. Please let me know if anyone knows how to solve this.

Have tried taking battery out, pressing on button for 1 minute, plugging machine to power (no battery) and restart. No success. Did not initiate any kind of update (certainly not BIOS!), upgrade or new software install (though the machine has been asking to upgrade to Windows 10, which I have not done yet).

I have a Latitude E5500 series with a matte screen.  It is almost 3 years old. The pixels along the top and side edges of the screen have slowly been going black.  The top edge had lost up to 1/2 inch of display in some places.  (see picture 1 from two weeks ago)  Today there is a large black half circle at the top that is six inches wide and an inch thick (see picture 2).  Strangely, some of the top edge that was black before now works again..
I assume it is related to the slight pressure it receives when in my computer backpack.  It was not dropped or crushed or anything unusual.  Are these laptops too fragile to transport?
Do you think that replacing the screen will fix this?  Or is this a different problem?  It is not under warranty any more so I may try to replace it myself.  I see a video on YouTube about that.  Any suggestions?

Hi GALLEON72,
It definitely looks like a display issue.
Run the LCD bist - Turn off the system and press and hold the "D" key + power button to turn on the system and it should run the LCD built in self test - see this link for more info - http://dell.to/1SkXNrG 
Connect an external monitor and check if the display is fine.
If yes, which I presume it would be, replace the LCD on the system. 
I am not sure if Dell would still have parts for an obsolete model. However, you could contact our team to get a quote - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
You could also order the parts here - http://bit.ly/2ifwGGM - however, I am not sure if there is a matte display available.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

I have a Lenovo Edge 2, fairly new, few months old. Problem I am currently having: Screen goes randomly black, but the LED light still is on, no mouse pointer, sound turns off too (similar to hibernate maybe?). I get a message at start up that there is an issue with one of the drivers. But when I check the drivers, everything looks updated (its set to upate automatically anyway). I had a similar issue before, another driver message. The problem was that my laptop wouldnt connect to wifi unless the power mode was totally amped. Something about the laptop thinking its in low battery mode and wifi connection dropping, I connected it via hardwire and updated the wifi driver i think, and the issue resolved. Could it be a similar issue? There seems to be a problem with this laptop and the sleep mode / low battery mode status driver maybe. How should I fix this?

I have an AOC 16" lcd monitor. On the edge of it I get these small black wavy lines. After about a week these wavy lines started increasing. The screen was also somewhat scrappy and flashed quite often. I checked the monitor cables and tried replacing them. Still it didn't go away. Then tried it on another computer, but the same thing happened. After that tried connecting a different lcd monitor of the same model to the system unit. The same result. Then I found out in one of these forum threads that it might be a graphics card problem. So tried fixing a graphics card to the AGP slot. But then no screen output came. So think something is wrong with the slot. Unfortunately, it's only the internal VGA which is working now.

After messing up with all these I tried replacing the PSU as the 3.3V was around 2.6V according to my system's BIOS. So it did seem to be a good fix for sometime till the CPU usage got high. The lines got back, but this time not much as before. No flashing either. The 3.3V now is around 3.2V. But now another problems has popped up. The BIOS keeps saying 'press F2 to reset defaults' at bootup. Is it something to do with the CMOS battery or the motherboard?

Wonder whether all of these problems are connected with each other. So that's why gave the best possible explanation I could about the problems I have. Sorry if I'm too formal. I ain't a native speaker, so hope you guys excuse me for that. Hope I'll get s... Read more

Hi Oolee,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Did you try booting from safe mood? There is also a chances, if your cables are intact and not loose (VGA Cable), or the monitor loses power.
 
Please go through this HMM for hardware assistance.
 
Method 1:
Any external hardware can cause this (like a keyboard or mouse can cause system to sleep to save the power) 1. To change this go to ?MANAGE? by right clicking on the ?MY COMPUTER ? icon on the desktop . 2. Go to DEVICE MANAGER. 3. Click on the keyboard or mouse or any other USB devices and right click on them and go to PROPERTIES and select POWER MANAGEMENT and untick the appropriate box.
 
Method 2:
Control panel > Power options >Choose when to turn off the display (look for this in the side bar)  Set ?TURN OFF THE DISPLAY? to NEVER Set ?PUT THE COMPUTER TO SLEEP? to NEVER. And then continue to ?Change advanced power settings? Go to "SLEEP" Set "SLEEP AFTER" to NEVER. Set ?ALLOW HYBRID SLEEP? to OFF. Set ?HIBERNATE AFTER? to NEVER. Go to ?DISPLAY? Set ?TURN OFF DISPLAY AFTER ?to NEVER. Press APPLY and then OK.
 
Let us know how you get on.

To make a long story short, I've been asked to help fix a friends mom's U410 laptop which wasnt activiting Windows 8.1 properly (Was Windows 8 OOB). After struggling with the activation for a few hours, I backed up the data and decided to just run the Lenovo one key recovery. During the recovery process, the installation had failed. When I attemped to reboot, no Lenovo splash screen was loading - just a black screen (although i can hear the cooling fan start, and hear the harddrive spin up. I tried to access the boot menu thru the novo button, and nothing would load; still a black screen. After researching for a few more hours, I had found multiple threads about bios updates required to be able to access bios with windows 8, and other threads about gpus on these units booting to a second screen (which i did test, and the second monitor does indicate a signal). None of the solutions on those threads have given positive results.   Basically, I've run out of options and am looking for some suggestions. The only thing that shows up on the display at anytime is the small blue novo menu when the button is pressed (normal start up, bios setup, boot menu, system recovery - all of which just leave a black screen). Thanks.

After having my HP Pavilion dv7 for slightly over a year (and just out of warranty), my screen has started to randomly go black - and there is no response from ctrl-alt-del, Esc, mouse movement or anything. It doesn't sound like it shuts down (all power, volume, etc. lights stay on), but doesn't respond unless I shut down and reboot. It is happening more and more frequently and most recently, the computer froze and the screen went slightly scrambled (like a digital tv would during a storm). It didn't go black that time, but shortly after it froze, I shut it down.

There is a possibility that this could be related to a time when the laptop was left on a pillow and shut down from overheating, but that could be a coincidence as well.

Any ideas? It operates on Windows Vista.

I am stumped on this one. My HP pavilion dv6 turns on, gets past the BIOS, screen goes black. If I leave it on I can tell it's working in the background, because eventually the wireless icon flips on. After that, I can press the sleep mode key, wake it up, and then after a moment of displaying everything fine it switches off. Also, it appears that when I shake it after the screensaver comes on (at which point the screen flips off) it will again display momentarily before switching the screen off. I dual boot Ubuntu, same issue, still the occasional moment of functionality.


Removing the battery and doing a hard reset doesn't help, can't boot to safe mode, can't change graphics drivers since I can't see anything. Ideas?

Hi zoheb_syed , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Doing factory reset would delete everything and repartitioned with new Windows on it just like out of the box . 
Lenovo splash screen is a good sign that power goes in the computer and the devices required for a working machine.
For as long as you back up your files , try doing the Lenovo Restore using the Novo key (no.2 page 9).
Just turn off the pc and use the Novo button to turn it on . Novo menu would give the System Recovery 
 
Soon as done , create a local account and proceed. 
If it goes to a black screen during the process , I recommend you call in tech support for repair.
Most likely there would be a problem with the GPU since rendering on Windows failed.
You can also check the display on any external monitor to see if the display would work externally to isolate LCD or cable issue .  
If the computer finish up with the restoration then run Lenovo diagnostics. 
 
Tech support can give you repair options or if BIOS update is neccessary . 
Best check on your warranty for the type of repair service you would expect (either sending to depot or Onsite repair)
Considering the turn around time of the repair , which I know that you need it on a daily basis for work  Try above step and let us see how it works.
 
Hope this helped you get things done on your issue.

Recently my monitor is acting really weird, When I play games it randomly goes black when I do different things. Some examples.

When I play Far cry 4 the screen goes black when I stand in certain spots and it goes back on when I move.

When I play watch dogs the screen goes black when I change the video settings,

When the screen goes black the games keeps running and I can do stuff in the game but I don't know how to fix it.

Computer specs:

AMD FX-4300 quad core

AMD R7 250 1gb

8GB RAM

1TB harddrive

Asus VE247H
 

A:Screen randomly goes black when gaming

It is probably not the monitor. Try looking for a more recent video driver for the computer and its AMD R7 250 1gb video card

so I just bought a laptop (Core i7 6500u 2.60ghz, 8gb ddr4, 1TB, Intel HD 520 4gb total, 15.6? LED, dvdrw, Windows 10 64 bit O.S) , the screen randomly goes black for a second, sometimes this may happen in succession , sometimes just once(several times a day). I returned to the store to have it checked and they told me it may be because windows 10 is still updating. i let them do it then came back. But still the problem is still there. i had to take video everytime i use the unit so i can show them . 2nd time i went back, they said they would reset it. afterwards it was still turning black randomly. 3rd time going back to the store they told me they  would send it to HP to have it looked at. but then after several days they texted me and said the unit is ok now. i was informed before that they will send it to hp support but they actually did not. they just had their technician look at it. i dont know what he did but the unit still has the problem but its not as bad like before. the screen occasionally goes black for a moment atleast once a day. can you please help me . i can also send some video of the screen turning black if it can help. i dont know if the problem is due to windows 10 or the unit itself.....thank you

Hi.

3 Days ago while I was playing Dota 2 my screen went black for one second and then it came back (the green led was on), later that night it happened again. The next day happened again when I was playing Star Conflict.

Today it did it like 10 times already, once while I was in firefox, rest in Star Conflict. At one particular map, where I had no problem playing yesterday. When I was facing a supernova (large burning fireball in space) the monitor went black then came back then black, when I turned the ship away the monitor was fine. I slowly moved the ship around to see when the screen goes black and when it reached the fire (or something beyond it).

Powered down pc, took it apart, cleaned it and checked if everything is connected nice and tight. It had some (a lot) of dust, carefully removed it, cleaned the cpu and the vga fans both. Started pc, started firefox, winamp and star conflict (these 3 program were running when I had the black screen), I got this black screen for a second in the garage of the game.

Right now im going to reinstall my graphics card driver, will update with result.

In the meanwhile. What can cause this? How to fix? I googled it before I came here, some people claimed its dead transistors on the motherboard, some said its memory fault, someone else said its the cables, some other dude said its vga and go replace it....none of these guys had a solution.

PC specs:

win 7 64 bit (2 months old install)
2*2 GB 1333mhz ram

A:Screen goes black for a few secs randomly

Update:

Reinstalled the vga driver, now whenever I start a game the screen goes black and comes back after a few seconds, then goes black again and again and again. I have music in the background. If I close the game with alt+f4 the screen fixes.

Games I tried: Dota2, Rift, World of Tanks, World of Warcraft, Kotor2, Star Conflict
I have other games too but didnt bother with them.

So, what now? If you tell me to buy a new vga I will stick a screwdriver in your arsehole. I have no money to buy a new one.

Hello everyone, get ready to have a little bit of reading!

So my problem is actually that my screen (both my screens cuz I got 2) turns black randomly. I am in a CS GO game or playing Eve online and my screens just "stop working". I can close and re-open my main screen and it says "no signal". BUT the computer is still working fine, I was on Discord with friends and they were telling me where to go...didint work out pretty well, but that said, it looks like my GPU crash or something?

Happened twice in 30 min and now it just happened once...
I had another problem 1-2 months ago, well I had that problem for about 6 month or so. Randomly my computer was freezing, image freeze, sound freeze, ALL freeze. (used to happen like 1-2 times a month) Now it seems that it wont freeze (I am gaming less I suppose). But I got this new problem or black screen.

Oh and at the same time I am writing this, I was trying to update my GPU drivers, and it popped an error and close the Nvidia menu...
Well actually I think it might be my GPU that is about to die, but how can I test it? How can I be sure it's the GPU? It could be the power supply getting old and not giving enough power? It could be the motherBoard...maybe?

Here is my build :

System : Windows 7 Professionnel ?(X64)? Service Pack 1
CPU : Intel Core i5 3570 CadencÚ Ó 3.40 GHz
motherBoard : ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. P8H77-V LE Rev X.0x
RAM : Corsair 4x4 DDR3 Ó 666.54 MHz
GPU : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660

So I bought a new laptop but after 20 minutes or so the screen goes black (sometimes with a startup of an app or clicking something). The computer still runs so I can put it to sleep but when I wake it up it immediately goes black. I hooked it up to an external monitor and it worked on that. I thought it was a graphics problem, but now I'm not so sure. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling my Nvidia and my Intel HD Graphics Drivers but that didn't seem to work. I can still hear sound out of the speakers. The problem didn't happen at first, after about a week and a half the problem started occuring. I also tried to boot up from safe mode to no avail. The computer was not overheating according to the CPU temperature. The laptop is always on a charger. Any possible fixes?

Specs:
Model - ASUS N550JX
CPU - Quad-Core Intel i7-4720HQ Processor(4th generation)- 2.6 GHz
RAM - 16 GB DDR3 SDRAM
Graphics - Nvidia GeForce GTX 950M(Dedicated Graphics 2GB DDR3 VRAM)
Storage - 500 GB Samsung EVO SSD (the problem still occurred before replacing the 1 TB HDD)
OS - Windows 10 64-bit

Hey Tech Support Guy's users,

Yesterday, I got back to my house, and went on the computer for a short while, then while looking on the internet, my Inspiron 1525's screen died on me. Not only my main screen, but also my other monitors as well, saying there was no signal. I was assuming that it is a dying Video Card, but I wanted to have more insight regarding my question. Is my fear correct, or it is the drivers? I haven't updated my drivers since 4 months ago, so I doubt it is my drivers.

Any who, if you need more information from me, please ask away and I will respond as quickly as possible.

-Tempbid

P.s. I wasn't do sure if I was suppose to put it on Hardware or Window 7 section. Felt like, it could be a window 7 error.
